New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says MetLife Stadium security
is already ”extremely rigorous” and doesn’t anticipate recent
terror alerts to change current plans to ensure fan safety at the
regular-season opener Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
Johnson says Friday while security operates ”at a pretty high
level,” the team will adhere to ”any recommendations” that are
made by ”any of these security forces.”
He would not go into specifics on whether there would be a
national security presence at the game, which will be played on the
10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks. ”We’re pretty
thorough,” he says.
Johnson says his wife Suzanne worked at the World Trade Center,
but was running late for work that day. Her boss and many other
fellow employees died in the attacks.
