Training camp is where it all starts and when teams begin forming the group of players that will take them through the 2016 season. As camps unfold and teams slowly dwindle down to their 53-man rosters. Training camp is used in several different ways. New players and coaches use it to acclimate themselves to new teammates and systems. For younger players, it serves as a period of evaluation; for veterans, it is time to round back into form. Training camp is divided into several different components. The first is scrimmages. These are pseudo-games where teams run nearly full games’ worth of plays. Sometimes, two practice sessions are held on the same day. This concept is referred to as two-a-days. Other parts of training camp include drills, meetings with coaches and other players at one’s position, weight training, and pre-season games. The latter half of training camp leads directly into the exhibition season. More and more teams are practicing close to home. In fact, 20 out of 32 NFL teams hold camp at home. Here are the practice locations for all the teams in the NFL along with the start dates.

NOTE: Only 11 teams are going away for camp, both because many teams just find it easier to stay in their multi-million dollar facilities and because the new CBA cut down on camp time and on-field hours.

Though all teams can report for camp 15 days before their preseason opener, each team manages open practices and some early workouts differently. Below is a list of every team’s first full practice; teams that leave their home sites/facilities for camp are noted, as are key training camp dates.

To kick off the 2016 season, the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts play the first preseason game of the year at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium with football on Sunday night!

The Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers will travel to Canton in August to kick off the National Football League’s 2016 preseason in the NFL/Hall of Fame Game. The preseason classic is set for Sunday, Aug. 7 at 8 PM ET in Canton’s Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

The Colts and Packers will close out the 2016 Enshrinement Weekend one day after three of their famed legends are formally enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Longtime Packers quarterback BRETT FAVRE and the Colts’ former head coach TONY DUNGY and wide receiver MARVIN HARRISON are among the eight-man class that was recently elected to the Hall of Fame. Other members of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016 include owner EDWARD DeBARTOLO, JR., linebacker KEVIN GREENE, tackle ORLANDO PACE, quarterback KEN STABLER and guard DICK STANFEL.

Favre spent 16 of his 20 NFL seasons with the Packers and led the resurgence of the franchise that resulted in a Super Bowl XXXI victory. He retired as the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards, attempts, completions, and touchdowns. Dungy coached the Colts for seven seasons during which time the team posted 12 or more wins every year except his first when Indianapolis finished 10-6. He became the first African American head coach to win a Super Bowl when he led the Colts to a victory in Super Bowl XLI. Harrison played his entire 13-season career in Indianapolis and racked up 1,102 catches for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns. He was named All-Pro six times and voted to eight Pro Bowls.

The Colts and Packers will each make their fifth appearance in the NFL/Hall of Fame Game.
