Jets bring green to CNY, over $3.5 million according to study

The New York Jets brought a lot of green to Central New York, but officials say the numbers aren’t as high as last year’s training camp.
Cortland (WSYR-TV) - The New York Jets brought a lot of green to Central New York, but officials say the numbers aren’t as high as last year’s training camp.

This year's camp pumped $3.68 million into the Cortland County economy this summer, according to a study by SUNY Cortland.

That number is down from the $5.5 million from 2012. The study says the boost in funds generated in 2012 can be attributed to high profile players such as Tim Tebow.

The report says 21,000 people from 34 states and five countries visited camp this summer.
