A New York Giants player found a way to cash in on the Super Bowl even though he won't be playing in it.Rookie Cooper Taylor is renting out his New Jersey condo with roof-deck views of MetLife Stadium — because it will be too depressing to stick around for the madness, he told the N.Y. Post.The defensive back and his girlfriend, real-estate broker Susan Carlson, are offering up their 2-bedroom, 2-bath Rutherford apartment for $9,000 during Super Bowl week.“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,” said the 23-year-old Taylor. “I am definitely disappointed that we are not playing in it. It would make it a lot more fun.”The couple opted not to mention Taylor’s NFL career in their Craigslist and AirBnB ads — but did drop some subtle hints.“We are big fans of a local team here and unfortunately will not be attending this year,” they wrote in a Craigslist pitch for the space.The 1,000-square-foot apartment is outfitted with a 70-inch TV, a pair of comfortable couches, and a pile of freshly washed NFL-player-used linens — all within one mile of MetLife Stadium. The Manhattan skyline is an added bonus.The couple rent their furnished apartment month-to-month for $2,700.A late-round draft pick who was unsure if he would even make the team this year, Taylor pulls in a relatively modest $450,000 annually and said he could use a quick Super Bowl cash  payout to finance a mini-vacation.No Jets fans allowed.
