NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -The New York Giants and New York Jets ended naming-rights talks with a German insurance company that once had ties to the Nazis.
Allianz (AHL'-ee-ahns) had been looking to buy naming rights to the stadium being built in northern New Jersey.
The move was criticized by Jewish groups and Holocaust survivors. The company says it has atoned for its history and should not be judged by its World War II record.
Allianz officials confirmed that talks have ended. Discussions are continuing with other potential partners for naming rights.
