"SUNY Cortland's been great for us," said Idzik. "They're extremely hospitable and the campus is a terrific setting for our team to bond and prepare for the upcoming season."

Idzik explains that the team is doing their "due diligence" in considering other sites. Since 2009, the Jets have used the SUNY Cortland site for training camps, except for the 2011 NFL Lockout, when football was delayed until an agreement was reached between management and players on July 25.

SUNY Cortland President Eric Bitterbaum acknowledges that the Jets presence during the summer has been a boon to the University and the area. "Our unique partnership with the Jets has been positive for the college, Central New York, and, of course, the team, said Bitterbaum.

Idzik and the Jets have not given a timetable as to when the decision on the training camp location will be decided.
