Jets Owner Johnson Says Security Ready for 9/11 Opener

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.
