The New York Giants won’t be going to Super Bowl XLVIII, but you can have the chance to stay in one of their homes should you decide to.

As chronicled in Wednesday’s edition of the New York Post, rookie Giants safety Cooper Taylor and girlfriend Susan Carlson are looking to rent out their two-bedroom condo in Rutherford, N.J., for Super Bowl week, with Taylor telling the Post that they are looking to avoid the hubbub around the big event.

“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 Taylor. “I am definitely disappointed that we are not playing in it. It would make it a lot more fun.”

Carlson, who is a realtor, also listed the apartment on several websites, including Craigslist, and while the ads did not reveal their identities or Cooper’s vocation, the couple did say that they were “big fans of a local team here and unfortunately will not be attending” the game.

The cost for this experience? Just $9,000 – or slightly more than three times the $2,700 monthly rent the pair pays for the digs.

Cooper has missed the Giants’ last two games with a hamstring injury, and he will not playing in their finale at MetLife Stadium on Sunday either after being placed on injured reserve Wednesday. The fifth-round pick, who also missed three games earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, finishes his rookie campaign with four tackles and one touchdown, scored on a blocked punt in Week 10 against Oakland.
