D.C. Council Member Michael Brown says he's been talking with Redskins owner Dan Snyder about opening up a Redskins training facility in the District.
They may be called the Washington Redskins, but the team right now has little to do with the nation's capital. They play their games in Landover, Md., and practice in Ashburn, Va.
That's why Brown says it makes sense for a D.C.-based training facility.
"It just seems to me the training facility would have a nice opportunity for a home here in Washington, along with potentially a museum, a Redskins hall of fame, restaurants, which means jobs," Brown says.
He says, in a perfect world, he could see such a facility opening up in three to five years.
Of course, the Redskins used to play in D.C. at RFK Stadium. And while Brown says he would love to see the Redskins come back to the District to play their games, the council member says you have to crawl before you walk.
