The report was confirmed by WXLW-AM, the Redskins' flagship radio station, as well as The Washington Post. Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell later announced the deal.

"Virginia considers the Redskins our team," McDonnell said, according to the Redskins' official website. "The team is based here. The team trains here. The players live here. Virginians root for the Redskins on the field, and off the field the team contributes greatly to the economy and culture of the Commonwealth. Virginia is committed to keeping the Redskins right here in our state for years to come, and today we've taken a significant step towards accomplishing that goal."

Following a lengthy relationship with Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa., the Redskins have held training camp at Redskins Park, their Ashburn, Va., headquarters since 2003. The club began exploring other options this offseason, and WCAU-TV previously reported that Redskins officials toured Richmond in March. A specific venue for 2013 has yet to be identified.

As part of the deal, Redskins Park will receive a $30 million expansion, according to Rich Tandler of Comcast SportsNet Washington.
