NY Jets looking to move back to NY?

An interesting post on a forum has brought the possibility of the Jets moving to NY back to the light

Could the New York Jets be heading back to Queens? If a forum post(hello, early 2000s) is to be believed, then it could happen soon.

On April 26, JetNation posted a picture of a forum post on X(formerly Twitter). In this post, the writer states that “there have been preliminary talks” for the Jets to move back to Queens. He also states that NY Mets owner Steve Cohen and the NYCFC are potentially involved in the process.

Additionally, the writer states that the Jets are “sick” and “tired” of dealing with NY Giants owner John Mara, who has shot down proposals to renovate MetLife.

Now, this rumor must be taken with a giant serving, not a grain of salt. There have been no public indications or rumors that the Jets would want to move or threaten to move out of New Jersey. Owner Woody Johnson is based in New Jersey, and the team’s practice facility is in the state.

However, moving to their own stadium in New York would be a very advantageous move. The majority of the team’s fanbase originates from the Queens/Long Island area, as the Jets played in Shea Stadium for a short time.

Additionally, the Jets would be able to fix the root issues of their stadium and fully create an environment that suits their organization.

While the rumor might be false, the reasoning behind it is sound. Whether in NJ or NY, the Jets getting their own stadium would be massively beneficial to their growth as a team and overall organization.

The Jets are aiming to create a new identity with their current rebrand, and the announcement of a new stadium plan would only make the changes stand up even more.
