Virginia Governor says Virginia would love to have the Redskins in VA; Talks regarding a new stadium

Washington Redskins rookie is pretty amazing

Washington Redskins getting a new stadium in VA?

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe was on ESPN 980 this morning and when he was asked about a new stadium in Virginia, he sounded as if he was pumped to get the Redskins in his state.

“I view this as a Virginia team,” the governor said on ESPN 980 Friday morning, during an appearance at the team’s training camp facilities in Richmond. “I know they’re in Maryland right now. But a majority of the season ticket holders are Virginians, all the players live in Virginia, we have all of your [practice] facilities. … We’re in very serious negotiations, as I assume other jurisdictions are. Listen, we would love to have them.

The Redskins do not need a new stadium, but their stadium is up for lease in 2027.  It sounds like the Redskins will probably be staying put for some time, but you never know in the NFL.
