NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero shared a memo the league sent to teams on Friday, which confirmed that teams “will be permitted to go away for training camp in 2021.”

That is good news for Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and owner Clark Hunt, who have made it very clear dating back to last January that they would prefer to do so. The Chiefs held training camp on the campus of Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri, every season from 2010 to 2019, but they had to stay home in 2020 after a league mandate stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

Friday’s memo appears to clear the way for a 2021 return for St. Joseph.

“Our hope — and our mindset — is that we will be in St. Joe for camp this year,” Hunt said during the draft last week. “We certainly want to be back up in St. Joe — it’s been a great environment for the team. I know Andy Reid and his staff really like being up there and think it’s helped us be successful on the field.”
