On good authority (take from that what you will) I have been told that the Jets are currently exploring the idea of leaving MetLife Stadium and building their own venue in Queens. The franchise is being understandably quiet about this right now but there are wheels in motion and the idea is being moved along up through the pipeline. This makes sense on a couple of levels - one of them being how the Jets could afford to do this - while continuing to increase the value of the franchise over the next 3-5 years ahead. Consider that Woodrow Johnson bought the club for peanuts at approximately $635 million dollars at the time of the purchase - and the valuation of the Jets has increased by 5 times that amount currently. Money will not be a factor in moving this thing along. Johnson has been more motivated since the Bills announced they'd be building a new stadium. As many know, the Jets own 50% of the Big Air Conditioner, a stadium far too big with nothing in the way of any signature aesthetics, and in reality, the move they made to partner with the Giants has not worked out at all for them and they're more than aware of this. The Jets currently own 50% of MetLife, however, owning their own "retractable dome" stadium without any other team involved could see the overall value of the franchise sky rocket another 1.5 to 2 billion dollars more upon moving in to their new digs. The Jets would sell the 50% share of MetLife back to the Giants (who would be doing cartwheels if this happened) and invoke their opt out after the 2025 season. The new Jets-exclusive stadium would mean an abundance of revenue driving elements for the club, including other sporting events such as The Super Bowl, Final Fours, Concerts, exhibitions, ect, and there's no way that the Jets would be short any number of banks wanting to lend them some dollars to help them get it all done and move this project to the actual building phase. The new Jets stadium would be built in the reclamation project known as Willets Point in Queens, with the Jets and Mets having their stadiums a walk across the street from each other. Do not be surprised to begin hearing about all of this in the next few months ahead. The Jets will keep their headquarters at the state of the art complex in Florham Park, New Jersey, and figure out simple travel logistics on game day weekends traveling the 30 miles or so to their new home in Queens. The other nuclear option for the Johnson's is to sell the team outright, however, I've been told that Johnson would prefer to cement his ownership legacy by doing what he originally wanted to do when he first bought the team, and that was to return them to New York. The "New York" in Jets is more than a good possibility at this point. Of course, this could all fall through, but I'm told Johnson is motivated to do this and he feels that Jets fans will look at him in a different light when and if this project is ever fully consummated. You heard it here: The New York Jets will be back in New York in either 2026 or 2027. Hallelujah!
