The New York Giants chances of making the Super Bowl were slim to star the season, were pretty much crushed after an 0-6 start, and were eliminated from playoff contention a couple of weeks ago. It’s time to look at rebuilding an aging, ineffective offensive line to give the running backs better running lanes and Eli Manning a chance at finding his receivers, and some fixes to the defense will also have to be looked at. The Giants organization is already looking to next season, especially since Tom Coughlin, Jerry Reese, Eli, and the franchise as a whole are well-known for their ability to bounce back.
23-year-old rookie strong safety Cooper Taylor was drafted by the Giants in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and he’s mostly been restricted to special teams as a little-known rookie. But his size and ability as an in-the-box safety in the Giants versatile safety looks makes him an intriguing player going forward, and he could even transition to play outside linebacker due to his size; his speed at the OLB position would be really intriguing.
Not only is Taylor an interesting backup to watch, but he’s also doing something interesting this season when it comes to off-the-field news. According to Jennifer Gould Keil and Selim Algar of the New York Post, Taylor and his girlfriend Susan Carlson will rent out their condo during Super Bowl week.
The condo is very close to MetLife, and it even has a roof-deck view of the stadium. Of course, the condo is also stocked with furniture and has a beautiful TV, although Taylor hasn’t come out and stated his identity as a New York Giants player in online ads that state that the condo is for rent for Super Bowl week. It’s certainly going to be even more of a madhouse than usual in New York, and Taylor is going to get away from it. Not only is his team out of it, but he also prefers to take a vacation during that time period.
That’s some solid planning right here. How much does it cost to rent out his condo for a week? Taylor’s price for the two-bed, two-bath apartment costs a cool $9,000, and the New York Post adds that his girlfriend, whom Carlson met back when he played for Georgia Tech in college (he was drafted out of Richmond, though), is a real-estate agent.
