Meadowlands ready for corporate sponsor

The New York Jets may soon not be playing at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

MetLife is rumored to take over the name of the stadium in a reported 20 year deal worth an estimated $17 million per year.

The Meadowlands stadium will be the site of the 2014 Super Bowl.

Already paying about $8 million a year as one of four smaller “cornerstone” sponsors at the stadium, MetLife appears ready to step it up and take over the stadium.

The other cornerstone partners are Verizon, Anheuser-Busch and PepsiCo.

Neither team nor the insurance company would comment on the report.

With the deal, MetLife would float its two blimps — “Snoopy One” and “Snoopy Two” over the stadium with the new name being MetLife Stadium.

It’s not as good as if JetBlue took over the stadium, but it’s better than nothing.
