The ongoing NFL Lockout could force the Baltimore Ravens to change their training camp home this season from McDaniel College in Westminister to M&T Bank Stadium. McDaniel College has been the home of Ravens training camp since the team’s arrival in 1996, but the organization’s contract has expired with the school and negotiations are being held off until the lockout is over.
Ravens president Dick Cass told Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun that the Ravens are “in discussions” with McDaniel about having camp there this season, but that a final decision cannot be made until a schedule becomes more firm.
Should the NFL season become shifted even a few weeks, it would interfere with the start of the fall semester at McDaniel and force the Ravens to look elsewhere. Hensley presumes that the Ravens would likely hold public practices at M&T Bank Stadium and shift their main private practices to their facility in Owings Mills.
The Ravens did hold a practice at the stadium in 2010 that was attended by 17,851 fans.
