The Washington Redskins had hoped to move their training camp to George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., this August, but the two sides weren't able to work out all the details in time. The Redskins will continue to search for an alternative to Redskins Park, which isn't the most fan-friendly venue in the league.

"We recently had the opportunity to explore George Mason University as a possible site for training camp," Redskins GM Bruce Allen said in a statement issued by the club. "We are excited about the first class facilities at the university and will continue to work with their administration for a future partnership. Once a decision is made, we will make an announcement."

The George Mason athletic director, Tom O'Connor, couldn't guarantee the Redskins they'd have access to all of the facilities in August. And apparently the university also refused to furnish a quarterback.

We'll be here all afternoon.
