The Jets are the latest team to switch training-camp sites because of the lingering lockout.

The Jets will hold their 2011 training camp at the team facility in New Jersey instead of at SUNY Cortland, the team announced Friday.

"With all the variables presented by this unique offseason, we felt it was best for the Jets that we hold our training camp here at our practice facility," general manager Mike Tannenbaum said. "This was not an easy decision, but it's one we felt we needed to make in order to give us the best chance to win."

"Training camp is a collaborative effort that requires many different departments to work together to be successful," said Clay Hampton, senior director of operations, "and staying at our facility gives us the best chance to accomplish that goal. This is a new operation, but with the template we have in place from OTAs and minicamps, we are prepared for this scenario."

The team plans to return to Cortland in 2012.

PFW Jets correspondent and Jets Confidential writer Dan Leberfeld first reported the news.

The Ravens made a similar move on Wednesday and will train at their team facility whenever training camp begins.
