The Jets held onto coach Rex Ryan after missing the playoffs for the third straight season, but they aren’t holding onto the same pricing for their tickets. 

The team announced Monday that they have altered their pricing in two of the three decks at MetLife Stadium. Prices for seats in the upper level will decrease a little more than 10 percent on average while tickets in the lower level will rise by an average of three percent. Tickets in the mezzanine level will be unchanged, which means that tickets will be a bit less expensive overall next season.

“We understand the sacrifices many of our fans make to attend our games,” Jets President Neil Glat said in a statement from the team. “We carefully study and assess market demand based on many factors, including the secondary market, prices around the National Football League, and prices for other sports and entertainment offerings in the New York market. Our goal is to maximize the number of season ticket holders in our building in an effort to create a substantial homefield advantage.”

The Jets are not the only AFC East team changing their pricing model for 2014. Miami and New England have both announced that they are instituting variable pricing for next season.

    What else else could they do? Geno Smith is their QB…

    Prices, like their win total, will be lower next year.

    This should happen league wide. As much as the NFL has this united front on everything else, lower the freaking prices if you want fans in your stadiums.

    As a Patriots fan I enjoy kicking the Jets around, but I think they will be decent this year. Rex seems to be at his best when all is chaos, and watching Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez trying to push each other down the stairs all season will certainly be that.

    Bring back Joe Willie and his swagger and maybe you will get some fans in the house.

    Notice how they included the tidbit about other teams going to variable pricing? That’s because even when the Jets are on the road it should cost less to watch them.

    wow I love how the Jets are still considered a joke, when there are waaaay worse teams in the NFL. They’re not even the worse team in their division. Everyone said the Dolphins would break out this season and maybe even topple the Patriots, but we all know how that worked out. the JETS with their stable of no-name terrible skill position players not only knocked them out of the playoffs but finished above them in the standings. That defensive line is full of young studs who are going to be good for a few years. If they get a few skill position players on offense and Geno matures in his second full season, people wont be laughing too much.

    They should give everyone an autographed mink coat for attending.
