 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - As Glendale inched closer to a deal that would bring the Arizona Cardinals' training camp to the Phoenix suburb, Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff indicates it is resigned to losing the NFL team.
According to The Arizona Republic, the Cardinals would build a practice bubble encompassing 1 1/2 football fields to stage workouts out of the searing summer heat. Glendale City Council members were briefed on the proposed long-term deal Tuesday.
NAU President John Haeger says in a news release that the university is moving on to other opportunities to make up for the economic loss caused by the Cardinals' departure.
With the exception of one year, the Cardinals have trained on the NAU campus since 1988, the year the franchise moved from St. Louis.
