GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals President Michael Bidwill recently said that the team is close to a deal that would relocate its camp to University of Phoenix Stadium.

Dave McAlindin, Assistant Director of Glendale's Economic Development Department, will update the council Tuesday about the status of negotiations regarding the planned 15-year deal with the team scheduled to begin this summer.

"We have been working with the Cardinals over the past couple of months to put together agreements," he said. "I don't want to get into specifics until I speak to the council. We want to get this done so the Cardinals can get on with making their final decision."

Meanwhile, Tom Bauer with Northern Arizona University said they are awaiting a decision by the Cardinals on the location of their 2013 summer training camp. He made an extraordinary deal to keep the team in the pines during the summer in Flagstaff.

"We have put a good package together and we hope they'll go for it. We hope to hear from the team soon and hope they return."

The Cardinals pump an estimated $10 million into Flagstaff's economy each year.
