Giants rookie Taylor renting out condo during Super Bowl week

New York Giants rookie safety Cooper Taylor is renting out his New Jersey condominium near MetLife Stadium during Super Bowl week.

Taylor told the New York Post he's renting out his condo because it would be too depressing to be around New York with the Giants not in the Super Bowl.

Taylor and his girlfriend, real estate broker Susan Carlson, are hoping to net $9,000 for the week for their two-bedroom condo.

“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 said. “I am definitely disappointed that we are not playing in it. It would make it a lot more fun.”

The 1,000-square-foot apartment has a 70-inch TV.

Taylor and Carlson started dating in college at Georgia Tech. They rent their furnished apartment month-to-month for $2,700.

“We rented it with furniture included because, with such a volatile lifestyle, we didn’t want to have to worry about transporting furniture in case we had to move cross-country,” she said. "We were looking for enough space to entertain and host family on the weekends the Giants played at home, but not break the bank and be unreasonable. The next thing was location and proximity to the stadium, as Cooper receives fines for being tardy or missing practices.”
