The Super Bowl is scheduled to come to MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Jets and New York Giants, next year, but the NFL is not taking any chances, according to Sports Business Daily. If snow is in the forecast, the league will likely move the day the game is played — either bringing it up a day or pushing it back further in the week, according to the report. The league is working on a variety of contingency plans based around not only snow during the big game but also the possibility that the area could be shut down, similar to what happened this past weekend during the nor’easter that overtook New York, Boston and surrounding areas.

Chris Canty met with the Titans, scheduled to visit the Chiefs

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, former Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty met with the Titans over the weekend and is now scheduled to meet with the Chiefs.
