Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was described as “unhappy” today in reports that noted he was staying home from organized team activities. Now “unhappy” has been upgraded to “furious.”
That’s the word a source used in describing Revis’s feelings to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. According to Hubbuch, Revis views the Jets’ latest contract offer as “pitifully low” and is so unhappy that he might skip this month’s mandatory minicamp and perhaps even training camp.
Revis is reportedly telling friends that the Jets have broken promises to him and are doing the same thing that they’ve done to players like Pete Kendall, Chris Baker, Laveranues Coles and Leon Washington, all of whom departed the Jets after acrimonious contract negotiations.
For his part, Jets coach Rex Ryan is downplaying Revis’s absence.
“This is a voluntary camp,” Ryan said. “When it’s time to react or be frustrated and all of that stuff, I’ll react.”
It sounds like the time to react will be June 14, when the Jets open a mandatory minicamp that Revis doesn’t plan to attend.
