Big news- the New York Giants will be bringing their training camp back to the Capital Region this summer. The team’s vice president, Pat Hanlon, said that despite the decision to hold camp in New Jersey, “The University of Albany and the Capital Region has been a great summer home for us for 15 years and we have every intention of returning there in 2012.”

Hanlon spoke with the Times Union and also said that even with Sunday's national win over the New England Patriots, "we have every expectation to (return to Albany) this year."

A spokesman from SUNY Albany is also very sure of the Giants returning to the campus for the summer of 2012.  Due to the NFL lockout, the Giants ended up training at their permanent base of operations at the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey last summer.

Training camp typically runs during the first three weeks of August.
