Chiefs Tell St. Joe To Prepare For Training Camp

We've said before that, when it comes to the NFL, it's not what you say that matters, it's what you do. Despite that, what the Kansas City Chiefs are saying right now is noteworthy -- at least when it comes to training camp.

Lance Snow of KQTV in St. Joseph reports that Missouri Western AD Dave Williams recently spoke with Chiefs team president Mark Donovan who "gave the university the greenlight to prepare for Chiefs camp". Dan Nicoson, Missouri Western VP Advancement, said the Chiefs are "emphatic" about returning to St. Joe for camp, according to KQTV.

This makes me feel even better about the lockout being lifted in time for camp. Donovan's not going to set folks up for disappointment and say the Chiefs plan to come if there's no shot of a new CBA getting completed. It's on the right track to getting done and it could be done in time to cost us zero days of training camp. (The key word in all of that is could.)

Really, though, the Chiefs, St. Joe and MWSU don't have much of a choice but to at least prepare for camp. You can't just pick up your operation and move it an hour north one day. The process is more involved than that and requires weeks (or months) of planning.

The Minnesota Vikings have told their training camp partner in Mankato that they'll let them know if they're coming by July 18. The Baltimore Ravens, meanwhile, have canceled their travel plans. The Ravens usually travel to McDaniel College in Westminster for camp but announced on Wednesday that they were canceling their plans to travel and will stay home for camp. The biggest downside to that? Hardly any open practices for the fans.
