FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Darron Lee and Eli Apple are set to share a stadium, and possibly even more.
“I saw Eli last night. We got to talking and I said, ‘Hey we should be roommates or something,’” Lee said with a laugh, during his introductory news conference Friday.
The Jets’ first-round pick was thrilled to hear that Apple, his former Buckeyes teammate, is now a cornerback for the Giants. But Lee was a tad confused about how the whole sharing a stadium thing works between the crosstown rivals.
“Are the lockers with each other or not?” Lee asked innocently, referring to the Jets and Giants set up at MetLife Stadium. He quickly was informed otherwise.
“Oh, OK. I told him if we had the same lockers, ‘Don’t touch my locker,’ ” said Lee, drawing laughs from reporters.
