Super Bowl champs plan return to Albany for camp

The Super Bowl champion New York Giants say they’re planning to

return their training camp to Albany this summer.

Pat Hanlon, the team’s vice president for communications, told

Albany-area media outlets Thursday that the Giants plan to follow

up on franchise President and CEO John Mara’s pledge to bring the

camp back to upstate New York.

The Giants decided during last year’s NFL labor lockout to hold

the 2011 training camp at their headquarters in East Rutherford,

N.J. Mara had said then that the team intended to return its

training camp to Albany in the summer of 2012.

The Giants trained at the University at Albany for 15 years,

their longest stay at one training camp site in the 87-year history

of the franchise.
