Giants players will provide advice to John Mara regarding the new field surface at MetLife

Giants co-owner John Mara says he will meet with players before a new field is erected at MetLife Stadium as a response to NFL players’ mounting worries about the safety of synthetic fields.

After this season, a new surface will be installed in the stadium, which hosts both the Giants and the Jets. Although the stadium’s administrators have previously stated that the turf will stay artificial, the Giants acknowledged in a statement to the New York Daily News that all possibilities are on the table.

According to the Giants’ statement, “the Jets, the stadium, and we continue to discuss the next field in the stadium.” “As part of his responsibilities on the player safety and health committee, competition committee, and management council, John has heard from players and other specialists about playing surfaces. As we continue the process of choosing a new field, he anticipates speaking with our players.

The ground will be made of grass if the players have the final say. Despite the NFL’s position that synthetic and grass fields are equally safe, there has been a concerted effort among players to demand grass. Mara is willing to listen, but it is unclear whether he will act on what he learns.
