New York's attorney general Eric Schneiderman has started an antitrust investigation into the current NFL lockout. The probe is looking into the economic impact on ordinary workers due to the lockout.

Assistant attorney general Richard Schwartz wrote in a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that the lockout will "inflict significant economic injuries statewide" and that the attorney general's office is "deeply troubled" by the potential impact of the lockout under the state's antitrust law.

"Many New York public and private institutions depend heavily on the NFL training camp and regular-season games to generate revenue," the letter from the attorney general also stated, according to the Buffalo News.

The NFL issued the following statement, per Pro Football Talk: "We will review the letter with our attorneys and then respond to the assistant attorney general."

The Jets already have decided to move their training camp to New Jersey instead of its normal site at SUNY-Cortland in New York.
