Jets fighting back rent gouge, Abe breathing easier

May 29th, 2003
The Jets announced the filing of a $7.5MM lawsuit against the Meadowlands for an alleged stadium rent overcharge and DE John Abraham underwent brief surgery. The Jets announced the filing of a $7.5MM lawsuit against the Meadowlands for an alleged stadium rent overcharge and DE John Abraham underwent brief surgery.

The suit alleges that NJSEA overcharged the team by $7.63 million for renting Giants Stadium. The Jets claim that the landlords violated the terms of the teams lease by charging it 15 percent of ticket sales as rent. The Giants pay 10 percent of ticket sales.

If anything, the suit shows that relations between the Jets and the Meadowlands arent the greatest and its more fuel for their exodus upon their lease expiration in 2008 whether its in Manhattan or elsewhere. The NJSEA has 30 days to respond to the suit.

Jets DE John Abraham underwent minor surgery last week to remove his tonsils and adenoids. Abraham had been having nasal problems and upon examination they found his nasal passages were 90% blocked. The surgery should help his stamina on the field increase significantly.

OTAs started successfully yesterday with only LB Marvin Jones and WR Santana Moss absent due to personal reasons. Hadley Englehart, agent of DT Dewayne Robertson was at Hofstra yesterday negotiating with Terry Bradway and Mike Tannenbaum. Although he left without a deal being reached, both sides are optimistic that it will happen soon.
