MetLife Near Deal For Naming Rights To New Meadowlands Stadium
New Meadowlands Stadium, the year-old football home to the New York Giants and New York Jets, could have a new name for the 2011 NFL season. MetLife is reportedly near a deal to purchase the naming rights for slightly more than $17 million annually. That is less than the $30 million annually the teams hoped to get, but $17 million more than the zero dollars Jerry Jones has been able to get for his new palace, the Jerry Dome, otherwise known as Cowboys Stadium.
