Ready for some non-breaking news: The New York Giants will not be playing in the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in February.
More non-breaking news: People going to this season's Super Bowl in New Jersey are going to pay a lot of money for hotels.
Well, why not make the experience a little more unique and rent out an NFL player's pad for the week of the big game?
New York Giants rookie Cooper Taylor and his girlfriend have put their Rutherford, N.J. apartment up for rent for Super Bowl week. All you need to do is pay him $9,000 and it's yours.
What's included in the deal? A 70-inch TV, a roof deck with views of MetLife Stadium (if you're brave enough to stand out in the cold), two bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
It's also just a mile from the stadium so you can walk to the game.
"We thought it would be the best time to get out of the city and go on vacation because that week will be a madhouse," Taylor told the New York Post. "I am definitely disappointed that we are not playing in it. It would make it a lot more fun."
Taylor, who makes $450,000 in his rookie year, pays $2,700 a month in rent for the place.
