Revis described as "furious," could skip training camp

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.

    This is gonna be so much fun to watch i wish i had some popcorn! I love this train wreck! Shibacle to you, JETS fan!

  2. SomeGuyInIowa says: Jun 3, 2010 2:59 PM

    With all of their huffing and puffing for a new deal, when it comes to being fined for not attending mandatory practices, players show up.

  3. nyj-gate D says: Jun 3, 2010 2:59 PM

    revis is no drama queen, he’ll show up and win the NFL defensive MVP this season along with superbowl MVP

  4. SHONUFF says: Jun 3, 2010 3:02 PM

    what a way to reward a player like that. Looks like the Raiders will be on the horn in no time at all…

  5. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Jun 3, 2010 3:03 PM

    head strong coach vs head strong CB.
    oh this is going to be good…but right now its just high school BS

  6. ampats says: Jun 3, 2010 3:04 PM

    Revis should sit out the season !!!
    Free agency next year with the new CBA

  7. TheWien says: Jun 3, 2010 3:07 PM

    All that big money the jets have been throwing around in the uncapped year… and of course Revis wants a fat contract… once a salary cap kicks in again, they’re going to have some tough choices to make

  8. Belichick Is God says: Jun 3, 2010 3:07 PM

    Awesome news about the NFL’s most overrated team!

  9. MyronB says: Jun 3, 2010 3:08 PM

    That’s the price you pay, Jets fans, for having the best cornerback in the game on your team.
    Too bad that an elite cornerback can only do so much to win games. This drama might be worth it for a Drew Brees / Peyton Manning esque QB, but if this kills the Jets season, it will be laughable – all this trouble over a guy who can only take an opposing receiver out of the game, at best.

  10. thefloater says: Jun 3, 2010 3:09 PM

    I’d be furious too if I had to play for that crappy franchise and that bloated, idiot coach.

  11. tickintimebomb says: Jun 3, 2010 3:09 PM

    Darrelle…. they have to be able to afford all of their overhyped, overpaid, and over-the-hill players they’ve added in the last couple of years.
    Stop being so selfish!

  12. bluestree says: Jun 3, 2010 3:11 PM

    Same pattern repeats itself after Mangini is long gone. Curious.

  13. jcjets says: Jun 3, 2010 3:11 PM

    Revis is under contract for two more years. Mangold really should be delta with first this is the last yr of his contract.

  14. robert ethen says: Jun 3, 2010 3:12 PM

    Ryan has 3 prospects to try out. Jim Manhattan, Joe Long, and Jerry Coney. He thinks one of them could be bigger than Revis.

  15. DenverWally says: Jun 3, 2010 3:13 PM

    Revis is going to win the Super Bowl MVP? Only if they trade him to the Pats this summer.

  16. Tony Snow says: Jun 3, 2010 3:13 PM

    Dont forget Alan Faneca!!! :(
    J-E-T-S = Just End The Season! Lol!

    Jets? Win a superbowl?
    Someone has been hanging out with Lawrence Taylor and Michael Irvin too much because you my friend are hiiiiiiigh.

  18. ADH636 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:15 PM

    You forgot to mention how Baker, Kendall, Coles, and Revis are all represented by the same agent…. weird that they are using the same negotiating tactic.

  19. toddm6d says: Jun 3, 2010 3:18 PM

    That’s the problem with these football divas. They have one good year and think they deserve something.
    Haha JETS, enjoy the crash.

  20. BostonRob says: Jun 3, 2010 3:19 PM

    wheres all the “hulk hand” jets fans? the ones saying the pats dont take care of their players? where are you tough guys?

  21. Levito says: Jun 3, 2010 3:22 PM

    Even though Revis’ demands may be on the high side, I’m going to have to believe his side of the story. It’s becoming pretty clear that the Jets organization doesn’t live up to their promises made to their players.

  22. Green n' Gold says: Jun 3, 2010 3:22 PM

    Who does Jet management think they are? The Arizona Cardinals?
    No time to go “Hebrew” with the 2nd best corner in the league!

  23. ItalianArnyGuy says: Jun 3, 2010 3:22 PM

    Revis will be in camp and Belichick will have to cheat even harder to beat the Jets. Oh and Big Ben is awesome!

  24. Ace613 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:24 PM

    Good times!!! Looks like the offseason Superbowl champs are falling apart alot sooner than I thought. I could use some popcorn too!!!

  25. Zinn says: Jun 3, 2010 3:26 PM

    Tannenbaum now has a long history of being called a liar by Jets players. How many players have to call him a liar before his fanboys will believe he is not on the up and up.
    Taking shortcuts by being dishonest will always catch up to you in the end. It is a shame as the organization itself has such a good reputation with players. Players love Rex. The front office has amazing talent scouts led by Clinkscale and Bradway.
    The sad part is Tannenbaum gets all the credit for the draft picks. But in reality Tannenbaum has done little. Recall Tannenbaum was against the drafting of Revis, Harris and Shonne Greene. It was Bradway and Clinkscale that champined and argued for the trade ups to draft all three against the wishes of Tennenbaum.
    Recall also it was also Tannenbaum along with Parcells that got the Jets into salary cap hell (between 2000 and 2006) in the early 2000′s that made Belicheck or any coach not want to coach the Jets and caused the Jets to not only go through 4 head coaches in a 1 year period but to have to unload most of their talent being unable to sign FA’s or resign their own between 2000 and 2006. Causing a massive exodus of talent.

    Mark Sanchez is going to see the Sophmore Slump this year. NO PLAYOFFS FOR YOU JETS FANS!!!!

  27. Bing253 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:30 PM

    Looks like Leon Washingtons Wife was correct in her statement about the Jets really not wanting to pay players-looks like Jets fans need to pay up and buy those PSLs so you guys can sign your players

  28. pftfanboy says: Jun 3, 2010 3:31 PM

    anything remotely adverse for the jets gives me a boner.

  29. God's Own Silver and Blue says: Jun 3, 2010 3:32 PM

    Settle down, Revis.
    I want some nachos, Rutthead!

  30. RayDaMayor says: Jun 3, 2010 3:33 PM

    Revis is furious after only being offered $8 Millon a year…..you know a man has to feed his family this days.

  31. Citizen Strange says: Jun 3, 2010 3:34 PM

    I don’t know if this is fit to print but the only time that I get truly “furious” is when I masturbate.

  32. frostymugobeer says: Jun 3, 2010 3:35 PM

  33. venis2k1 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:42 PM

    Starting contract negotiations by lowballing a guy??? the nerve.

  34. Kappy says: Jun 3, 2010 3:42 PM

    Ha! Defensive MVP, maybe. Super Bowl MVP, definitely not. Championships are built & won from September-February, not March-June. The only thing the Jets have won & will win is newspaper headlines. Sanchez is not that good, LT is washed up, Edwards & Holmes are drastically overrated & Shonne Greene hasn’t proved anything but a propensity for injuries. The defense will be good, but if you can’t score, you won’t win. If signing washed up, overrated players translated into wins, the Redskins would have at least 4 titles over the past decade. Instead, they are on their 3rd head coach in 4 years. Take that as a cautionary tale Jets fans. This is not baseball where free agency signings & trades equate to championships. The best teams build from the draft & supplement through free agency & the Jets have done the opposite.
    Another cautionary tale… In 2007, The Pats were the best team on paper possibly in the history of the NFL. Every “expert” picked them to win the SB. What happened? The REAL NY football team beat them senseless & took home the hardware. Nothing is a given in the NFL, especially with over-the-hill players. Speaking of the Pats, they will be better than the Jets this year & will win the AFC East. Brady has a year back under his belt, Randy Moss is in his contract year, and their defense is young & now has experience. Plus, Billy B. is the BEST defensive mind in the NFL, not Fatboy Ryan. I’m calling it now, Jets will disappoint yet again & finish behind the Pats.

  35. 305phinphan says: Jun 3, 2010 3:44 PM

    The Jets organization obviously is telling their players one thing and doing another. It’s bad enough they have to play for those ignorant trashy fans, share a stadium, and be in that cesspool state, now they get stuck with crappy management that does not want to pay their top performers. Hopefully those players wake up and realize that Rex Ryan is not going to get them to the Superbowl and the front office are a bunch of cheap @sses and get the hell out of that puke green.

  36. william sizemore says: Jun 3, 2010 3:44 PM

    He has 2 years left on his contract, honor your contract fool cry baby. Of course the Dolphins fans knew he wasn’t that good,and the New Jersey Jets also think he can be replace, don’t you just love theses ego driven fools? Bill

  37. mer8670 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:46 PM

    don;t worry, they have Cromarite to fill the void, he’s not lazy or anything and didn’t LaDanian complain about the dischord in SD being a problem…. enjoy the season JETS fakers!

  38. Dixon29 says: Jun 3, 2010 3:49 PM

    What a joke. Get your lazy ass to work, you know, like the rest of the free world. What an idiot. I hope he does sit out training camp. He thinks he is unhappy now, when he starts getting hit in the wallet, he’ll change his tune.

  39. BP says: Jun 3, 2010 3:52 PM

    jet’s fans, pucker up and kiss your ass goodbye! It’s starting to fall apart. Big mouth coach teaches players to have a big mouth.

  40. benjaminbreeg says: Jun 3, 2010 3:58 PM

    This is one of the best CB’s in the league. I am appalled the JETS would treat a player of this caliber in the mannor.
    Are you going to let these scum sucking maggots in the front office at the JETS treat you like this, Revis?
    They never stop bragging about having you on the roster, MAKE’EM PAY!!

    I guess you are pretty sure that he’s going to another team because there is no way the Jets get to a Superbowl. Jets are losers, always have been, always will be. Enjoy the meltdown losers.

  42. rovibe says: Jun 3, 2010 4:15 PM

    I’ve been one of the minority who think the Jets had a bad offseason, and not a good one. Sure they made some moves. But when has signing a bunch of free agents and trading for other new players all within the same offseason ever worked? Even Dan Snyder seems to have that figured out now. Every team talks about the value of good chemistry, and yet the Jets have completely changed theirs in the past few months with so many new faces. It was already working well for them, so I think they risk stepping backwards on these deals. And predictably, now we’re seeing veteran players demanding better deals because of the money they’ve seen thrown out to other players who weren’t already a part of the winning chemistry that took them to within a game of the Super Bowl last year. Train wreck this year, just watch. They were nuts to can Thomas Jones, too. You let a 1400 yard rusher go, then sign a lesser replacement for that kind of money?!? Insane.

    Jets ownership REPEATEDLY screws its fans AND players….

  45. cy farnsworth says: Jun 3, 2010 4:19 PM

    This is what happens when the media turns the NFL season into a 12-month affair.
    The Jets have plenty of time to get Revis under contract. He’s their most important player by far; the notion that they’ll low ball him or let him walk is a pure fantasy concocted by Jets-haters and the bored sports media.

  46. GangGreenCominAtYa says: Jun 3, 2010 4:24 PM

    as a jets fan, im not worried about this one bit. for one, revis will come back to camp when he gets raped out of his pocket. and for two, even if they don’t come to a deal with him (which i personally think will be wayy too much for a CB if they do) the jets will be able to sign back their other “key players” such as, mangold, dbrick, harris…and possibly sign santonio back and maybe cromartie.
    even if this gets ugly and revis doesnt want to sign a new contract, trade his ass. i assume the jets would get a ton in return from a player of his caliber.
    this is a team game, if one guy (cornerback) is making, lets say 17.5 mill a year, your team is still going to suck. you won’t be able to keep the other important, talented pieces together to win. so as much as i love revis, if he doesnt want to be a team player then go play for another team and ruin them. thanks for the “one” good year too

  47. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Jun 3, 2010 4:25 PM

    Here is what I figure: You have a blow-up doll of Ben, the rapist, and you hit it up the tailpipe all day.
    The Steelers are now on the decline – 3rd place in their division….. and you are a pathetic piece of shit.

  49. dybzinski says: Jun 3, 2010 4:28 PM

    I’m surprised PFT isn’t blaming Mangini for this. After all I read last year about it being solely his fault in lying to players and then not paying (since when does a coach decide contracts?), the flavor of the year witch hunt has moved on.

  50. JetsAreAJoke says: Jun 3, 2010 4:33 PM

    I don’t understand all the talk. Every player just loves to play for Rexy and will even take less money to play for him. Just ask any jests fan. They’ll tell you that every day.

  51. Joe says: Jun 3, 2010 4:35 PM

    cant wait to the Jets fall flat on thier faces this season!

  52. TheSleepness says: Jun 3, 2010 4:40 PM

    Eating is also voluntary Rex, maybe you should hold off on that for a while you fat slob.

  54. finsbooyah says: Jun 3, 2010 4:46 PM

    You don’t hear too many Jet fans talking sense like GangGreenCominAtYa did in that last post…
    The fact is, it seems like all of the Jets best players have expiring contracts, and there is absolutly NO WAY they can resign them all. But if they give Revis some ridiculous 15+ Million a year contract (which is something only top QB’s should ever get) then they will be saying goodbye to almost all of their other beloved free agents.
    Nevertheless, we continue to hear nothing but arrogance (not confidence) spewing from Ryan’s jiggly face… I love it

  57. geek says: Jun 3, 2010 5:00 PM

    Wow! There are some really racist comments getting into these posts. What is up with that?! If you are going to be a complete biggot and ignorant @$$, the least you can do is shut the h311 up!
    All you JETS homers – sure, they should just pay the guy. I’d love to see the JETS wast $15-20 million per year on Revis. He is the best CB in the game, and may be personally responsible for shutting down half the pass lane. If he stays healthy all season, he will make the difference in ZERO wins. Make him account for almost half the defensive salary cap space (once it’s back in place), and every team in the league will be able to run it down their throats and pass it all day long to the weak side of the field.
    Here is my game plan as the Patriots OC: Moss will run a deep fly route every play and we will alternate between throwing to Welker or a TE and running outside to Moss’ side of the field. Once Revis realizes he needs to watch for the run, Moss will beat him once or twice down field for a TD. If I’m the Dolphins OC, I do the same thins with Marshall, and if I’m the Bills, I do it with Lee Evans. Watch the JETS go 8-8 this year and 6-10 the next year…

  58. IndyCard51 says: Jun 3, 2010 5:02 PM

    No team should invest more than $10-12m/per year in a CB. Just because the Raiders did it doesn’t justify other teams conducting business in a similar fashion.
    .
    That kind of money should be spent on QBs or elite pass rushers. A good pass rush can allow average CBs to thrive. On the other hand, a poor pass rush can get even the best CBs eaten alive. Shutdown corners are nice, but owners can’t allow their team to be held hostage financially at the expense of other positions.
    .
    I don’t know why anyone would want a player like this on their team. I can fully understand a guy who’s making $1M a year or so as a role player going somewhere else for bigger money and a chance to be a key contributor. However, guys like Revis–who would most likely rather make $14m playing for a losing team rather than $12m playing for a contender–are beyond ridiculous.

  59. Tdk24 says: Jun 3, 2010 5:09 PM

    Besides stellar play, this is another thing that sets Nhamdi apart from Revis. Grow up dude, you ain’t no Nhamdi!

    If the Yankees didn’t massively overpay players each year by 5 or 10 times what they are worth, and the Giants hadn’t picked up my 9th favorite all-time Steelers deep-route running receiver (who now resides behind bars in Rome, NY), there would be nothing to cheer about at all in that rat-infested town
    Thank you Jets for completely imploding (as we all knew you would) after one year of very mild success and returning to the 5-11 team this year that we all knew you really were

  66. tom coughlin's coat holder says: Jun 3, 2010 5:41 PM

    from what i remember a couple of years ago when revis was negotiating with the jets,the contract was unique in regards to other contracts.i think the agent for revis and tannenbaum drew up a contract that had a buyout clause in it.i believe the contract was for six years but could be bought out in four years. mind you,i’m not positive about this,but who knows,maybe there are other clauses in this contract that have different triggers.
    no matter what the jets say or do,revis is in the catbird seat on this one.people aren’t going to spent money on psl’s to see tannenbaum,they want revis.
    i like jet fans complaining about revis and his lack of loyalty,screw loyalty.tannenbaum would pole his mother if he could find two peop[le to hold her down.i always thought that mangini was the prick in that outfit,now i see that it was tannenbaum all day,all way.
    the jets will always be on the verge of something,but the jets always have somebody like tannenbaum to hold them back.tannenbaum has left a trail of pissed off players in his wake,sooner or later this will catch up to them.

  67. BoltsFan says: Jun 3, 2010 5:51 PM

    I am SICK of hearing about players whining about contracts that they signed with agent representation AND with no gun being pointed at their heads. If they want to factor in becoming underpaid due to higher-than-expected performance, then they should have their overpaid agents build that into their contract as additional incentives. Once they have signed that contract, they should be made to honor it or not get paid a dime.
    The union-loving socialists in here are no doubt going to counter with the lame argument that “owners void contracts all the time.” Yes they do, but the players union signed off on giving the owners that right, and they’ll get that back only if HUGE concessions are made in other areas that players consider even more sacred.

  74. smithopher says: Jun 3, 2010 6:49 PM

    @MyronB – this guy is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, game changers in the NFL for opposing offenses. He can take ANY receiver and make them almost a non-issue. Who’s the best receiver in the league in your eyes? Andre Johnson? Revis has shut him down. I want to see him play on Larry Fitzgerald… To me, that dude is the best WR in the league. Either way, with a guy like Darrelle Revis you don’t need to worry when you play the Dolphins twice a year with Brandon Marshall. For a team that’s run oriented like the Jets, it really helps win those games when you can control the clock for 40 minutes and don’t give up the big pass plays to let the opponent back into the game. Please sign this man to a 6 year 90 million dollar deal ASAP.

    What a joke. Get your lazy ass to work, you know, like the rest of the free world. What an idiot. I hope he does sit out training camp. He thinks he is unhappy now, when he starts getting hit in the wallet, he’ll change his tune.

    Yeah, right. Face it, with the style of defense Rex is running, the Jets need Revis more than he needs them. Having Revis out there lets them run the blitz packages they like to use. Without Revis, they’d be getting burned by decent QBs on a lot more of those blitzes. As for the “honor your contract” and similar comments, my question is why? Apparently the Jets FO has a history of not honoring their promises. Why should a player be considered dishonorable or lazy for not wanting to play under what they view as a bad contract just because the franchise promises to take care of them in the future when that same franchise has a history of saying one thing and doing another. That’s not honorable. It’s just dumb. If Revis wants to get his money from the Jets, it’s starting to look like he’s going to have to force the issue now. As for Revis worrying about fines for missing mandatory practices, if he can force a new contract, the additional money he makes will make those fines look like spare change.

    QB threw what, 25 picks last year?
    Our division (I’m a Pats fan) hasta play both Norths.
    That’s effin tough. Balt, Cincy, Pitt, Cle, Minny, GB, Detroit and the Bears.
    Plus the Jets gotta play us twice.
    They go 8-8 and Rex gets fired next year.

    Nice anti-semitic jab……..but Dan Snyder’s a Jew and how has his spending methods worked out?

    “If Revis wants to get his money from the Jets, it’s starting to look like he’s going to have to force the issue now.”
    Your statement asserts that “his” money is actually his. It isn’t. It’s not “his” money until the owner decides to make it his. He is not contractually owed ANYTHING other than what document calls out for him to be paid…and last I checked, he’s been paid every dime of that. Verbal promises nothwithstanding (and I do agree with you that such ‘promises’ should be kept unless a franchise wants to appear that it lacks integrity), those kinds of things are unenforceable anyway. Not only that, interpreting “we’ll take care of you” doesn’t typically mean what the players WANT it to mean, which is “they’re gonna pay me everthing I deserve (read, I want). The reason agreements are memorialized on paper is so that there is no such misunderstandings. The players need to wake the hell up and realize that they are NOT owners, and do NOT have as much leverage as owners do. If they don’t like that, they can either pony up and buy a team or go be janitors somewhere else. They are being paid ridiculous sums of money for what they do (here comes the “they only play a few years and have to make that money when they can) B.S. Listen, if these morons invested just a fraction of the money they make during their playing years, they’d never have to work another day in their lives. But they think they have to run out and buy Bentleys and 20 carat diamonds for their d-i-c-k-s so they rarely save enough. The general public has NO sympathy for such profligacy.

    First, I’ll bet this is being overblown. But it does smell of Tannenbaum and has for years. We’ve lost a lot of drafted talent which makes no sense to me. Our “capologist” GM would have lost his job if we hadn’t pulled the season around last year. Yes, Revis and all the other players who are looking for new contracts (Mangold, et al) need to show up and do their jobs, but how many good players have to come out and say the organization is flat our lying to them for it to be believable. I live and I die this team but the front office has got to put their money where their mouth is. I know if my employer continued to lie to employees about promotions and raises year after year I’d be looking for greener pastures (no pun intended).

  86. joey-pickles says: Jun 3, 2010 8:27 PM

    OMFG! To all those dip shtz out there, Revis is under contract for 3… let me slow this down for you… tha-ree.. more years. He will not be a free agent anytime soon. Pissed off Yes! Is Tennanbalm too smart for his own good? YES! But there is no WAY the Jets release Revis between now and the 2013 season. Dumbass haters!

  88. SeriousRadio says: Jun 3, 2010 8:41 PM

    DB is one position where few FA bring their game with them after they sign for a big payday. Revis is now sounding like a diva, which is probably related to his agent wanting to get an early payday himself. The FO should hold salary cap classes for the interested players, and teach them just how difficult it is to balance the cap ( even if 2010 is an uncapped year). There are other rules even in the uncapped year ( 30 % rule) that hinder a FO from writing silly checks. Somehow, these players should appreciate how the FO is bringing in additional talent to help win a SB.

    There aren’t many shutdown corners in the league anymore and Revis is one of them. Pay the man, he deserves it.

  91. mission says: Jun 3, 2010 11:32 PM

    So Charles Woodson is making 7.5mil in 2010…
    Revis is furious he got offered 8mil a year? Sounds like the offer was about 1mil too much.
    You have to make more of an impact than just shutting down the other team’s best receiver. Just ask Oakland; it hasn’t helped them do anything.

  92. covercorner7 says: Jun 4, 2010 12:01 AM

    Revis deserves at least $15 million per year.

    Hey dip shyt, YOU’RE WRONG. Revis signed his rookie contract for 6 years/$30 million ($11 million guaranteed over the first four years). While on it’s face it will last for tha..ree (that’s three in english) more years, he has a opt out clause where he can void the contract after the 2010 season, or the Jets can buy out 2011 & 2012 for $20 million total. Therefore, if the Jets don’t pony up before the season, Revis will opt out & void his contract, becoming a free agent after this season. That’ll result in them paying more on the open market with the possibility of losing him, and almost certainly assure themselves of losing out on almost every one of their other 10-15 free agents in the 2010 offseason. It’s win now or nothintodos them & they’re not even the best team in their own stadium. Do your research before you post something so stupid.

  94. Steve W. says: Jun 4, 2010 4:38 AM

    Boltsfan, you’re being too literal and missing my point. When I made the comment about Revis wanting to get his money, I never meant to imply that it was already his, or that it was owed to him. I meant that if he wanted to get a nice big contract he might have to force the issue now. Obviously at the moment it’s Woody Johnson’s money, with Tannenbaum guarding the purse strings. That’s something Tannenbaum guards fiercely it seems when it comes to paying players that are drafted by the Jets and prove themselves to be top notch players. Worse yet, he seems to have a habit of saying things like “just go out and play, and we’ll take care of you”, which translated means let us profit off of you as much as possible, and then we’ll release you or trade you when it comes time to for you to get a new contract or big extension. That was my point, and by trying to be too literal in your analysis of a common saying, you seem to have missed it and instead went on an unrelated rant.

    Joey, let me explain something to you. The fact that Revis is still under contract doesn’t mean that they can force him to play. It simply means that he can’t play for anyone else but the Jets. He’s currently set to make something like $550,000 this coming season. Part of the reason for that is an advance that the Jets gave him in 2008, but it’s not that huge of a drop from what it would have been. Now, what you have to ask yourself is: what are the odds that Revis plays this coming season for $550,000? If you look at the history of players with the same agent, these hold outs aren’t idle threats. That doesn’t mean that Revis will hold out, just noting the track record. Revis certainly won’t by signing a contract he feels is low-balling him simply to get back out on the field sooner. Something will probably be worked out, but if it isn’t, the contract the Jets have with Revis can’t force Revis to practice or play. They can fine him, but those fines are peanuts compared to what he’ll be making if he gets a lucrative extension.

  96. Opie says: Jun 4, 2010 5:39 AM

    couple of random thoughts:
    1) Maybe it’s not Tannebaum. He may just be the hand puppet for Johnson? I can’t figure any other reason that he’s still employed by the Jets.
    2) @ MDS: I brought this up 3 weeks ago and asked why you and your fellow scribes hadn’t posted anything other than that ass kissing post that Revis wasn’t asking for $20mil/season. So, now I want to know what is NBC’s relationship with the Jets? Or do you have another reason for not looking into this until it has already blown up everywhere else?

    This is for “ItalianArnyGuy” who wrote: “Revis will be in camp and Belichick will have to cheat even harder to beat the Jets. Oh and Big Ben is awesome!”…
    This argument is so old… If you are ignorant enough to think that Bill Belichick is the only coach in NFL history to video tape signals then you deserve the moniker of “Idiot”..
    All coaches cheat, period, and it happens at all levels of play. Video Taped or just plain old spied on w/binoculars – doesn’t matter.
    Other players who have retired from the NFL have confirmed it as a standard practice. You can’t figure that out because you’re a blowhard who just likes to stir it up and has nothing better to do from your mom’s basement, on your mom’s computer, eating your mom’s Snichers and Reese’s Pieces, clogging up your mom’s toilet, working that job – oh, wait, what job? You probably think this IS your job – to go online and “Make Pretend” that you’re a football pundit.. You probably think that that JV letter you received in High School gives you free reigh to say and comment on eveything.. You probably think that you could coach an NFL team and win a Super Bowl because you dreamwed it when you were 8 years old..
    For the last time – The Patriots took the rap for the whol NFL.. Everyone was video taping, EVERYONE… By making an example of the NFL’s 2000′s dynasty all other franchises took notice and curtailed their ways in order to focus on other ways to obtain data on their opponents..
    By NO MEANS has, what we all think of as cheating, stopped.. It happens in allot of other forms from spies in the crowd to IT Hacking… We’ll never know to what extent it all happens and the NFL isn’t about to show a repeat performance of Spy-Gate.. From here on out if will be kept out of the publics eye..
    BTW – I’m not just a Pats fan.. I feel the Jets have an awesome team and deserve the recognition.. It’s idiotic fans like “ItalianArnyGuy” that keep you all down and make you look like idiots day in and day out…

  98. CMH says: Jun 4, 2010 12:19 PM

    … And what about this: Earn the money… Revis is an exceptional talent in the NFL and will get his money but he’s already on a contract.. Since when did the concept of a contract become such a joke? I thought a contract was something legal that held two sides accountable until it was completed.
    Where does it say that Revis should get a new contract and that the Jets have to provide it?
    In the old days people “Paid their dues”.. It seems like now that the concept of “Paying your dues” is for the less talented guys and that if you have exceptional talent you get to skip over the paying of dues and go right to “Where’s My Money?”..
    It’s not Revis’s fault – it’s our society.. We as fans condone it by buying more merchandise and more tickets while they keep taking advantage of us and diluting the thing we love most – The Game..
    Think about it…

  99. SomeFans says: Jun 5, 2010 12:10 PM

    The jests have a loong history of #1 (losing) and #2 lieing to their players about new contracts.
    I hope Revis gets $20M… really I do. That will speed up the disaster known as the Newark Jets.
    With No QB they will continue to be a 4 win team. Shanchoke is NO QB and was pathetic to watch last year. He would have put up 30 interceptions if they didn’t muzzle him mid season. Just another in a long line of draft busts for the pets.
    And they wonder why they get NO respect?

  100. thunderpants14 says: Jun 7, 2010 12:09 PM

    It wasn’t so much the lowball contract that made him furious it was the fact that it was accompanied by a Ted Ginn highlight reel trying to justify it…he was the only corner on it.
