BAGS ARE PACKED BUT JETS STILL ON THE RUNWAY
Jets Owner Barry Shenkarow is still considering offers from
two bidders seeking to bring the team to MN. L.A. sports
marketing exec Scott Nederlander was reportedly returning to L.A.
after a meeting with Shenkarow yesterday afternoon. Health care
entrepreneur Richard Burke also confirmed yesterday that he had
submitted an offer for the team, and was awaiting a response.
Nederlander "seems to have put some crimps in the sale process,"
as it is "unclear what his resources are" and his ties to the
area. However, in an interview with the STAR TRIB, Nederlander
said he would definitely bring the team to the Twin Cities (Jay
Weiner, Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 5/11).
