Could the Ravens 2020 Training Camp Be in Another State?

Ravens team president Dick Cass said Thursday that even with Maryland’s stay-at-home order set to be lifted Friday and hospitalizations due to the coronavirus declining, the Ravens could explore moving their training camp to an out-of-state site, Jonas Shaffer of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Social-distancing guidelines amid the pandemic have turned the NFL draft and offseason program into virtual events, and Gov. Larry Hogan announced Wednesday that restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people remain in effect.

But Cass and team officials have been optimistic that training camp will start, as scheduled, in late July. The Ravens have held camp at their team facility in Owings Mills since 2011. McDaniel College’s Westminster campus hosted it for the first 15 years of the franchise’s history and was the site of Baltimore Colts training camp from 1953 to 1971.

“We’ll consider all options,” Cass said in a video conference call hosted by United Way of Central Maryland. “I think when we think about the option of trying to move our training camp outside Maryland, we don’t like that option. We think that we can conduct training camp safely in Maryland. We know that our building will be absolutely pristine, and I think the safest place to conduct our training camp will be in Maryland, at our facility.”

“But if circumstances don’t allow that, we will explore the options that are available to us. We have to.”
