RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Now that the Washington Redskins Training Camp is underway, folks near some of the team's future potential sites in Richmond are abuzz about the move.

Redskins leaders, including general manager Bruce Allen, were in Richmond Sunday scoping out Virginia Union University (VUU), a potential site for the team's training camp.

Allen was escorted around the campus' fields and facilities just before 11 a.m.

Members of Mayor Dwight Jones' administration, including Jones' press secretary and chief of staff, accompanied Allen during the visit. Virginia Union Athletic Director Mike Bailey led the tour.

None of the team or city officials would comment about the visit, but talk of VUU becoming more of a top contender was certainly increased by the in-person visit.

Neighbors in the Carver community feel that if the Redskins do make the school their training ground, it will bring with it an economic boost.

City officials had said there were four locations still in the running for training camp, but CBS 6 News did not learn of any other tours for Allen and team officials Sunday.

A VUU official said last week that if the school does get selected, it will need a massive renovation of its current facilities.

Watch CBS 6 News starting at 11 p.m. for more of Catie Beck's report.
