    Think they were talking about moving training camp, Napa and Reno were possible options.
    They won't have mini camps in Napa, but July will be hot in Nevada and Napa is a better option for the weather.

    I could see the training camp location being a factor for free agents. Henderson/Nevada in July-September is a good 20 degrees hotter than Napa during the same months.

    Because those are to be used for these mini camps and then during the season.

    Get up to par with the rest of the league, get in the game for free agents. Dallas rolls to California for a 3-4 week training camp, Raiders will do the same.

    The truth is that when the Raiders play on TV; most of the fans that live in the Bay area will watching the Raiders so it be a good idea to do training camp in Napa as to try an keep the fanbase;

    A lot of teams use locations other than their own facilities for training camp. Many use Universities. I think its a bonding experience where the players are together all the time.
