As Revis' holdout drags on, Al Davis gets the blame

Welcome to day nine of the Darrelle Revis holdout.  The Jets cornerback has now accumulated $128,000 in fines, although we doubt the team will ever make him pay.

Instead, the Jets front office will work furiously to solve a standoff without an easy solution, only easy scapegoats.  Behind the scenes, the Jets have continued to peddle the line that it’s all Al Davis’ fault for the monster contract he gave Nnamdi Asomugha in 2009.

The New York Daily News‘ Gary Myers spoke to a sympathetic G.M. that agreed.

“In our league, we let one man’s stupidity ruin it,” the G.M. said. “I
would just say, ‘I’m not acknowledging it. It’s Al Davis. We are not
doing that deal. If you want that deal, do what [Asomugha] did to get
it. Wait until you become an unrestricted free agent.’ “

The Jets have handled it this way, saying they won’t go along with Davis’ market-setting deal.  But how far above market is $15 million-per-season?  The Broncos are willingly paying Champ Bailey $12.5 million this year on the downside of his career.

The better argument is that Revis hasn’t hit free agency, so he can’t expect to be paid like a free agent.  Quietly blaming Al Davis just distracts the Jets’ culpability.

Al Davis didn’t approach Revis’ agent just minutes after the Jets season ended, promising to take care of his client.

Al Davis didn’t call Revis the best defensive player in football day after day, putting Revis on a pedestal that the Jets now can’t reach financially.

    You also don’t know if the Jets approached Revis about ripping up the contract. Agents lie all the time. It could have been the Agent contacting the Jets, and the Jets saying we’d consider it.

    Rosenthal, you can end the article at: The Jets have handled it this way, saying they won’t go along with Davis’ market-setting deal. But how far above market is $15 million-per-season? The Broncos are willingly paying Champ Bailey $12.5 million this year on the downside of his career.
    Nobody wants to hear you opine on the subject because 99.99% of the time you’re wrong.

  5. I MURDER HOES/187403 says: Aug 9, 2010 10:16 AM

    Man, Asomugha played out his contract and Al took care of Asomugha like he promised. Revis is still a pup in this game and wants to be paid like a big dog.
    Jets should stop blaming others for their own doings. They created that monster now they got to tame it. Deflecting blame wont help em.

    5. Braylon Edwards drops everything

    This is just the beginning…….the Jets will become quite experienced at trotting out the excuses this year as their season builds to a thundering implosion….. i.e. chargers didn’t tell them that cromartie doesn’t like to tackle; dolphins sent them a movie star instead of a football player; chargers sent them game film of LT in his prime, etc. etc. Guaranteed it will be everyone else’s fault except the Jets and their loudmouth headcoach.

  10. Shmendal says: Aug 9, 2010 10:21 AM

    i have to agree with the GM. anytime a publically known crazy person make a move that different that the norm, you have to take the situation into consideration when using it to compare other teams’ situations
    the hayward-bay pick itself tells you all you need to know about the present day Al Davis

    “…accumulated $128,000 in fines, although we doubt the Jets will ever make him pay up.”
    That’s the root of the problem. The rules only apply to some – the average player. With players having “leverage” to avoid fines and in the end get what they want, spells the inevitable demise of pro sports.
    Look at what heavy handed unions in private enterprise have done to our economy. In sports the owners are up against the unions and agents.
    All this also makes it possible to not really care how it all turns out. These days fans have bigger fish to fry. At least I do. Maybe that’s why Roger is getting ready to pack up and move out of the country. GOOD RIDDANCE and good luck.

    OOO and revis has 3 years remaining on his deal worth 21 mil and aso had none OOOO. you are real dumb florio. Once again slanting the story, clearly revis is being stuborn with wantiing to be paid more then the most overpaid guy in the league. Then again the jets are being stuborn trying to offer no guaranteed money. But really I think its all for the hard knocks cameras and he will be back on the feild by the second episode.

  17. bwolf2875 says: Aug 9, 2010 10:23 AM

    As much as I wish that Al would retire and hand over the reigns of the Raiders organization, the guy isn’t stupid. Has time passed him by? Sure, but for some GM to call him out on this is ludicrous! His track record speaks for itself, 3 Lombardi Trophies, helped the leagues merge together, and was dead on with calling out Lane Kiffin! Sure he has done A LOT wrong, JaMarcus, but I don’t see any basis for calling Al the problem here. It’s as simple as this…people hate the Raiders and that’s fine and dandy, but they will return this year. Denver lost it’s best player and their offense is in limbo, KC is improving, but still down, and SD is in trouble without VJax…Say what you want about Floyd, but if he is that good, he would have been the leading WR last year. Raiders AFC West champs in 2010!

  18. Mr. Lagoo says: Aug 9, 2010 10:25 AM

    Typical behavior by a New York team – blame a senile old man for you not signing your star player? The old coot at least had enough sense to draft Asomugha. So what if he gave him a big contract…he also gave a big contract to JaMarcus Russell. Is New York going to use that as an excuse when they try to resign Dirty Sanchez? Maybe Revis is a prima donna, I don’t know, but don’t blame Al Davis…what a joke.
    And I’m not a Raider fan, they suck, but people need to take some responsibility and just get your job done without pointing fingers. Don’t be like Obama and blame everyone else and make excuses for your own failures…pathetic.

  19. RaiderMight says: Aug 9, 2010 10:30 AM

    So it’s Al’s fault that they prop their player up all year long. Letting the naming of an Island in his name get to his head. Whispering in his ear that he is great and that they are nothing without him and then refuse to pay him.
    Enjoy the monster you’ve created Jets! Unlike the Jets, the Raiders kept their mouth shut during negotiations, etc. All the while letting the mediots speculate that Al wasn’t going to pay his #1 player and just let him walk.
    Al pays players that have performed. If it wasn’t for the rookie pay out of control, he would rather give that money to vets.

  20. raidertg says: Aug 9, 2010 10:32 AM

    Maybe they should tell him the simple truth. You are not as good as Nnamdi. They need to stop blaming others for the owe stupidity

  23. Tom Selleck says: Aug 9, 2010 10:39 AM

    This is dumb. If Asomugha isn’t worth $15M, he’s worth $13M or $14M. Blame Al Davis for Tommy Kelly’s ridiculous contract, but not Asomugha.

    Hello, Mr I don’t know what I’m talking about….
    Cromartie and Edwards play for very small salaries right now and are hold the fort CHEAP guys till next year…. Gholston was a bad draft pick in the middle of all these great picks the Jets have to pay up – Harris, Mangold, Revis, Brick…. It happens, they missed one….

    Moral of the story, don’t work tirelessly week in and week out to build the ego and sense of self importance of your best player. They might just start to believe it.
    Seriously. Rex basically said Revis is the greatest defensive player of all time and makes their defense elite just by himself. Go back and listen to some of the compliments. If you believe all of Ryan’s glowing praise last season then you would think Revis is easily worth 18 mil.

    Old School says: “Look at what heavy handed unions in private enterprise have done to our economy.”
    Yes! That damn Wall Street union that peddled worthless debt as AAA bonds! And that damn housing market union that forced prices sky high by keeping interest rates artificially low while peddling zero down mortgages to idiots that the banks knew would NEVER be able to pay off the debts. And let’s not forget the union that started two trillion dollar wars and cut taxes at the same time. Damn all those unions! Everything would be great if those three unions didn’t f**k it up!!! Moron. Stop listening to talk radio. It’s killing the three brain cells you have left. In 2009, union membership was 12% of the working population. In 1983, it was 20 percent. Since you’re slow on the uptake, I’ll spell it out for. Union members are not even close to the majority of the working population and union membership has been going steadily downward since 1970s. The median weekly wage of a union member is $880 dollars a WEEK vs. $691 for a non-union employee. Yeah, that’s what killed the economy.

  34. Blackbeard says: Aug 9, 2010 11:03 AM

    Al only paid Aso based on what he would have to pay to keep franchising him every year. That freed up the franchise tag and allowed the Raiders to keep other players also. Did he overpay? Maybe, but it is the same amount he would have paid anyways, and it allowed them to franchise Lechler last year and Seymour this year.
    You can call him dumb, but he made the best decision for the Raiders.

  35. JimmySmith says: Aug 9, 2010 11:04 AM

  37. Don says: Aug 9, 2010 11:08 AM

    Rosenthal never fails to make a fool of himself. So you are saying that because the Jets said we will redo your contract or because they told him he was the best defensive player in the NFL that they should now pay him 15 or 20 or 30 or 50 million a year, right? You make us all speechless. I like the better idea of keeping Revis in the fold for the next 3 (or 4 if he doesn’t show up tomorrow) years. He can sit out all 4 and then make league minimum when he is old, fat and slow. Brilliant strategy. The Jets own him..get it? He is not a free agent, he is not in the last year of his contract, he is nothing.

  38. Pilehiclown says: Aug 9, 2010 11:08 AM

    What an idiot laying the blame on someone else. If Bevis is worth it to your team why not just pay the man?
    Al Davis took care of his peeps now shut up and take care of your own you effin clown.

  39. Commish says: Aug 9, 2010 11:11 AM

    As much as I like a Revis holdout, I don’t blame the Jets fighting the new market standard. Revis should be highly compensated, but Al Davis gives money away like Candy and drastically overpays players creating an inflation among players salaries in the league.
    Revis does deserve to be one of the highest paid however.

  40. ylekram1 says: Aug 9, 2010 11:11 AM

    Instead, the Jets front office will work furiously to solve a standoff without an easy solution, only easy scapegoats. Behind the scenes, the Jets have continued to peddle the line that it’s all Al Davis’ fault for the monster contract he gave Nmandi Asomugha in 2009.

    This is pathetic..
    Jets’ front office should spend their time actually working on contract proposals instead of whining about Al Davis.
    Asomugha played his contract to the end, despite the monster year he had with 8 INTs. For that, Al paid him well, yes. Revis still has years on his contract – he has like, what? Six INTs and now he want’s to break the deal..
    Grow up Revis and the Jets front office..

    Only cowards try to blame others with their own mistakes. The blame lies with the stupid jet jabba and the gang green GM. THEY were the ones touting Revis huge ego and now have to pay the price.
    Yet, they are still making dumb mistakes and painting the largest bulleye on their backs. Everyone outside of noo jersey will all laugh when this comedy ends badly.
    This is the reason everyone is posting on this pathetic little franchise. It’s not fear or jealousy as some jest fans cry, it’s simply pointing out that RESPECT must be earned- not given freely.
    and NO ONE respects the jets.

    I had really thought the Jets were going someplace but after this I have serious doubts. A team that is incapable of accepting blame for its own mistakes will never win the Super Bowl.

  48. Jampa says: Aug 9, 2010 11:32 AM

    Also remember that he was frustated by years of playing tag with woodson who is not even close to the classy and hard worker that Namdi is. Charles would just moan and complain in the press, which is a big no for Al, so he just let him walk…

    The Jets created Revis Island, Revis did not create the Jets.
    They should let him sit out and collect the fines.

  51. tacious says: Aug 9, 2010 11:43 AM

    This pisses me off because Revis pulled this crap as a rookie; he held out and eventually got his way… and got the deal he wanted… one that was front loaded. So the notion that he’s only playing for $1mm this season is absurd… the man just got a large advance on his salary.
    I really don’t think he’s outperformed his deal. He had 1 great season… and it was great… but there’s no guarantee that it’s going to go down like that again… look at Kerry Rhodes!
    The fact is, even before this situation became a sports issue at the national level, Revis had 3 years left on his current deal, for which he was guaranteed over $21mm… and that’s not good enough… WTF?
    In my opinion, there’s no way we can afford to pay Revis the kind of money he’s looking for without sacrificing the teams ability to retain other key players/ contributors… to me, signing 3-4-5 additional quality core players like Harris, Mangold, Cromartie, Edwards and/ or Holmes, etc. seems much more of a priority than signing this freakishly talented diva. He’s great… no doubt about; but the Jets don’t Need him to win… he’s a luxury… the D is set up to make CB’s shine… the D makes the CB, not the other way around.
    I think that if the Jets and Revis’ camp can’t bang something out by the 1st week, the Jets should explore trading him for a multitude of quality draft picks from a team willing to pay him absurd amounts of cash.
    Revis has grown to be one of my favorite players to watch, but I feel like he has quickly become a cancer to this organization… and an annoying distraction; he just comes across as greedy to me.
    Oh… and Florio… just b/c the Jets May have approached Revis about restructuring his deal to get him a bit more money, doesn’t mean that The Jets … Oh, and by the way, lets re-do your current deal to make you the highest paid player at your position after just 1 great year… you’re such a jackass Florio

  52. watchthisjack says: Aug 9, 2010 11:51 AM

    First, Al Davis has his man in camp fully participating, but he is the idiot? Second, if he has made it more difficult for a competing team to get their best player onto the field, that is a good thing, right?

    Hey Jetreaper,
    Before you go talking trash maybe you should know your facts about your crap JETS team.
    Braylon “Scrub” Edwards plays for a small salary????? His base salary is over $4 million and his cap hit is over $6 million. That is a lot of money for a guy who drops the ball a lot. That is not a cheap contract dumbass.
    Learn your facts before you speak and by the way the JETS SUCK and won’t win more than 6 games this year. You are probably as fat as Rex “eat me” Ryan.

  54. ejtowne says: Aug 9, 2010 11:54 AM

    I hate Rex Ryan. I hate his smug grin, his touting fat lower lip, his beady girl eyes, the way he shuffles up and down the sideline grunting as he struggles to put one leg in front of the other. Why do i really hate Rex Ryan so much? Because he is a liar, because he is a two-faced jerkoff.

    Contract (CON-Trakt): noun. “A formal, legally-binding agreement entered in by 2 parties for services rendered at an agreed price.”
    What part of this don’t players understand? I guess a College Edu-ba-cation isn’t what it once was. If you aren’t going to play your LEGALLY-BINDING AGREEMENT, don’t sign multiple-year contracts in the first place. “But I have to look out for my family…injury risk blah blah.” That’s having it both ways, and the NFL is a business. Once you sign on the dotted line, you play. Period. I get sick of these guys who don’t understand that just as many players have serious injuries and are protected by multi-year contracts, as those who have great years and think they’re being under-paid. If you’re that good, you’ll get your money down the road. And if down the road is too far for your feeble mind to consider, then just sign a 1-year contract every year and shut the hell up!

    If you read the writers comments he wasn’t blaming Al Davis, he was blaming the Jets organization for putting Revis on a pedestal and now have to pay him for what he’s worth. He’s definitely worth a few more million a year than Bailey.
    For what it’s worth it was the GM for the Jets Tannenbaum telling the reporters after the playoff loss that ended their season they would rip up the last 3 years of his contract.
    This isn’t an agent thing. (the writer never said any of this, this is some BS some people are commenting on)

  63. raybin says: Aug 9, 2010 12:29 PM

    Thanks for this, Rosenthal. The Jets trying to cast blame on Al Davis to cover up their own failings as an organization does them no credit.
    Davis takes care of his players and has for years–with the exception of JaDrank–had all of his rookies in camp on time.
    Whether he spends his money foolishly or wisely, it’s ultimately his dough. The Jets are welcome to spend theirs as they please too.
    The Jets organization and Rex Ryan in particular created this particular monster. Revis believes he deserves more than Nnamdi because they’ve told him he’s better than Asomugha. Looking at it that way, it’s hard to find fault with Revis’ position.
    There are plenty of defensive tackles better than Haynesworth. Yet how many have held out to be paid more than him? None. Because their coaches aren’t out there day after day lauding them as the best defensive linemen in the game and painting their ownership into a corner.

    Really, this is all that needs to be said. The Jets spent all that time inflating the balloon and now they’re big pussycats for not paying Revis and now the entire thing is blowing up in their face. Good luck with Nick Mangold, David Harris, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie and Shawn Ellis all who are not signed past 2010. And in 2011 Mark Dirty will only have 3 years on his contract like Revis does now. Maybe if the Jets inflate his balloon enough.

  66. JetReaper says: Aug 9, 2010 1:00 PM

    Hey Jetreaper,
    Before you go talking trash maybe you should know your facts about your crap JETS team.
    Braylon “Scrub” Edwards plays for a small salary????? His base salary is over $4 million and his cap hit is over $6 million. That is a lot of money for a guy who drops the ball a lot. That is not a cheap contract dumbass.
    Learn your facts before you speak and by the way the JETS SUCK and won’t win more than 6 games this year. You are probably as fat as Rex “eat me” Ryan.
    —————————-
    Sorry – But, that’s not a lot of money at all – Wether you think he’s a #1 or not, for the Jets he’s a #1 WR and is paid relatively cheap…
    Same with Holmes…
    If the Jets went out and paid Brandon Marshall like money to players I’d agree with this idea that the Jets spent elsewhere but, they didn’t – Instead of paying Marshall-like Money they got guys Like Holmes and Edwards relatively CHEAP…
    Those deals have very little to nothing to do with the Revis talks and Revis was the reason the made such cheap deals….
    Thanks for all of the other obviously BRILLIANT commentary – A gentleman and a scholar you are NOT.
    The only salaries holding the Jets back are all the Great draft picks they have recently made that have to get paid…
    You draft and aquire Great talent and you have these types of “Problems”.. Believe me, as a fan, I’d rather have these “problems” than not and Tannenbaum always makes it work…

  67. ampats says: Aug 9, 2010 1:01 PM

    I am looking forward to Wednesday AM when Mevis hasn’t reported to camp.
    Then we know that he probably wont be there for the start of the season.
    And to all the fair weather Newark Jets fans who say you do not need Revis as one Smithopher said Mangold was the more important player,
    when did he stop being the best player on your team, your shutdown CB? Not what Rex says.
    Mevis is the best player on the Jets.

  68. jets are stacked says: Aug 9, 2010 1:04 PM

    there’s a difference between taking care of a player and overpaying for him. the NFL is a quarterback driven league and the quarterbacks are typically the highest paid players. paying a non quarterback the same kind of money is asinine, especially if the market price foe that position is 50% less. this is why nnamdi is overpaid regardless of how good he is. al Davis could have taken care of him with less money and still have made him the highest paid corner. that contract was just silly and proved that Davis is a senile old turd. all you raiders fans are just apologists.

  69. snnyjcbs says: Aug 9, 2010 1:07 PM

    These are your Jets. They tell Revis that he is better than Nnamdi and that he should be paid more than him. They tell him forget about his contract and that they are going to ripe it up and make him the highest paid corner in the NFL. And they promise him it would be done before the season.
    All bull as the trouble with other players in the past that have said the Jets promise them things that when the time comes they never do. Al Davis has a right to do what ever he wants in paying his players, He has made his Punter, Kicker and Corner the highest paid at their positions.
    So Jets just admit that you are cheap, do not have the funds and will never pay Revis the money you promised. Revis should sit out the season and force a trade to a team that will put their money where their mouth is.
    Ask the Jets how many AFC Championship Games they have ever played in under their owner. How many Super Bowls have they made it to?
    Al Davis Raiders have played in an NFL Record (14) AFC Championships Games and (5) Super Bowls winning (3). The Raiders were also a Liddell Fumble or play away from playing in another (5) Super Bowls. Wow in or knocking on the door of almost 25% of EVERY SUPER BOWL PLAYED TO DATE.
    Your Jets, their records and your owner should not even be brought up when talking about Al Davis and the Raiders. “Go Joe Namath, Go Joe Namath “, lol a bunch.

  70. eik01 says: Aug 9, 2010 1:10 PM

    Good to see that the masses are seeing through this line of B.S.
    Al Davis, for all his failings has always been a players owner. Nnamdi played through his rookie deal and got what a great player on a crummy team gets, a crazy deal to stay. AL did what was best for his team at that time (other times, not so much).
    Revis’ ego got so blown up last year that the Jets should have seen this coming. And that’s before they shot themselves in the foot by telling him they were going to take care of him. Choosing to rename Manhattan to Revis Island for a day didn’t help either.
    The Jets dug their own hole and they are grasping to try and point the spotlight on someone else. Thankfully for Al he doesn’t give a rats a** what people think of him.

  71. joey-pickles says: Aug 9, 2010 1:22 PM

    To all the morons out there is cyber space…

    Not to mention this can just be made-up hoopla to attract more hits to this site (probably is)!
    This is not “new” news. It’s old. Revis wants Nnamdi money and Tanny won’t pay it. Ya got it! We covered this back in, what, March?

  72. Mumakata says: Aug 9, 2010 1:23 PM

    Jets, you need to sign this guy to a monster contract immediately.
    Revis, you are worth at least $18 mil a season, don’t sign for less.

  73. smithopher says: Aug 9, 2010 1:26 PM

    of course this is at least partially Al Davis’ fault. Darrelle Revis is the best CB in the league, and deserves to be paid accordingly. Al Davis drove up the salary for the top CB in the league due to the fact that Asomugha was the top CB previously, and Al davis gave him an absolutely ridiculous contract. I don’t think either player is worth 15+. Revis should be making maybe 13. Asomugha should be making somewhere under that.

  74. lurch's nyquil says: Aug 9, 2010 1:27 PM

    Correct me if I am wrong. Wasn’t Rex Ryan telling everyone he was the best at his position?????? Well, if that is the case then the man needs to be paid like the best. Blame Rex not the crypt keeper.

    Everything contained in the above exerpt from your missive has been conjured up in your own mind. You have absolutely NO idea if the Jets ever said anything remotely close to what you’re saying. You know NOTHING! The only thing we know for sure is that the Jets approached Revis after the season ans said… hey, great job, lets talk about getting you some more money… that’s it.
    It’s people like you (and Florio/ PFT) who run around creating these rumors as if they are fact that piss me off the most.

  76. kpweaver27 says: Aug 9, 2010 1:44 PM

    AFC East teams just don’t take care of their players, do they? Al Davis is obviously off on a lot of things, but the Raiders seem poised for a nice little run, and I think most Raiders’ players would say he takes care of them and lives up to promises. The Jets have hubris oozing out of their organization, from the GM to the coach to the QB to the other players. Having said that, they messed up this Revis thing, and it wouldn’t shock me to see him sit out 2010.

  77. tacious says: Aug 9, 2010 1:47 PM

    Thanks Joe… to puruse thru most of the comments on any PFT blog post is like having to listen to 2 uneducated Jr HS kids talking trash about things for which they have no idea, and have No facts what-so-ever to back up their absurd claims.
    What I find most comical is that a majority of people that comment on this site obviously only read the headline, then they go straight to the comment section so they can throw whatever crap comes into their puny little brain(s) against the wall just to see what sticks.
    You can pretty much tell the educated people from the uneducated by what they have to say on a daily basis… those who never offer anything but hate, disdain and factually incorrect info have no choice… they don’t have the mental capacity to offer anything of relevence to the conversation, so they spit out all that they can… garbage.

    it will be hard to resign everyone, but it’s too early to say they can’t. what if the salary cap increases substantially? what if the salary cap is eliminated? moreover, players like shaun Ellis, kris jenkins, and damien woody won’t be around after this season which will free up alot of salary.
    snnyjcbs
    yeah, the raiders have a better past than the jets but your team has sucked for most of this past decade and will continue to do with senile al Davis running the show. keep living in the past you dbag. me and my fellow jets actually get to enjoy watching a competitive team this year.

  80. Ruppy says: Aug 9, 2010 1:53 PM

    Very poor article or blog. It is very easy for ESPN and others to pile on Al Davis. The Jets have to MAN UP to Rex Ryan’s big mouth, their coach was blowing sunshine up Revis’s butt!
    Nnamdi Asomugha has played on an All-Star level, or All-Pro for many seasons, just hasn’t recieved credit because of the team he plays on that hasn’t won of lately, which helps get those votes along with TV time.
    Is there any facts in this article or just opinions that everyone knows.
    Many people like the move Al did with the contract, it’s football not softball. Many owners play that way. Example: Tim Brown’s contract was up and became a Free-Agent, guess what franchise gave Tim an offer millions more that the Raiders could afford, the Denver Broncos made Al give Tim Brown MILLIONS more than they wanted and afford, the raiders had to match it and sign so He wouldn’t end up in Denver.
    So Gregg Rosenthal, stop CRYING and blaiming Al Davis, blaim the Coach Rex Ryan and the JETS!
    It’s a dog eat dog world, especially in the NFL!

  81. Cerberus says: Aug 9, 2010 1:55 PM

    Those who want to blame Al Davis are just looking for a scapegoat. The problem with the NFL’s pay-scale has less to do with Davis, and more to do with the Player’s Union, rookie contracts, greedy agents, etc.
    Besides, here were the cap-values in 2009 for some of the DBs last season:
    Champ Bailey $13.6M
    Asante Samuel $10.0M
    Dunta Robinson $9.9M
    Darelle Revis $7.9M
    Charles Woodson $7.4M
    Corey Webster $7.3M
    Chris Gamble $7.0M
    Kelvin Hayden $6.6M
    Antoine Winfield $6.2M
    Nnamdi Asomugha $6.0M
    Nate Clements $5.6M
    Top 3 CBs in Total Salary in 2009:
    Kelvin Hayden $17.4M
    Chris Gamble $14.0M
    Nnamdi Asomugha $12.0M
    And Nnamdi was 7th in base salary for CBs in 2009.
    So how is it that Al Davis screwed things up? LOL!! Almost looks more like the Colts and Kelvin Hayden to me.

  84. raybin says: Aug 9, 2010 2:09 PM

    Also worth repeating the point made in the original post by Rosenthal: If the Broncos aren’t criticized for paying Champ Bailey 12.5 mil per season on the downslope of his career, it’s difficult to argue that 15 million is overpaying for either Asomugha or Revis.

  85. tacious says: Aug 9, 2010 2:11 PM

    Do 90% of you even read the blogs before you post comments? Tanny and/ or Rex were’nt even the ones who said any of that… it was an unamed GM from another team… and even that could be made up… Florio isn’t known for his journalistic integrity!

  86. Nard100 says: Aug 9, 2010 2:12 PM

    This article speaks the gospel because it is true. Al Davis overpaid and the media knows and the league knows it. Even Asomugha calls Revis the best corner in the league. My contention is if the owners are going to award contracts like this, how can they ask the players to take an 18% pay cut. They pay these outrageous contract not because they have to, but because they want to and they don’t want to lose these guys to other teams. The reason the other GM called Al Davis out is because he know what this does to the owners bargaining position. Kinda hard to say that they’re running out of money and then pay out and not even worry about value. Thanks Al Davis and Dan Snyder!

  87. Real Football Fan says: Aug 9, 2010 2:28 PM

    Lol, What a pathetic organization. And you loser Jets’ fans wonder why you haven’t won anything since 1969? If anything, Al Davis proves why their management is full of it because the Raiders are among the lower revenue teams due to their market size and bad product in recent years. Yet, Al Davis wrote the check because Asomugha is the best in football. Sure didn’t put him into bankruptcy. In fact, it wasn’t a concern because the nonsense the owners are selling is ridiculous. Being a member owner in the NFL is a license to print money because of that TV contract, and the Jets additionally gouge the number one market with ungodly PSL prices just for the right to buy tickets in the new stadium. All of that revenue which will be collected in that new stadium….the $8 beer, the hats, the parking, etc. all goes into Woody Johnson’s pocket because he decided to gouge you.
    However, moronic Jets’ fans would rather side with him and his pathetic management team, which lies to players and then wonders why nobody wants to stay there. I guess you’d rather Johnson continue to pile that cash up instead of paying deserving players, so that another one of his kids can drug themselves to death. You actually have some of the best players at their respective positions in foot ball (Mangold, Revis, Harris) so you pay them to build around them. That’s how you build a Super Bowl winner. It’s bad enough they let Tomas Jones walk over peanuts, but these guys are still in the primes of their career, pay them. If you wanted to whine about player salaries, don’t buy an NFL team.

  88. ChiefsNfl says: Aug 9, 2010 2:32 PM

    If you are not a Jets fan, then you should be rooting for Revis. If he signs his dream contract of $15+ million per year, the Jets will be hindered in future contract signings with other players. No matter how good he is, he is still a CB, and not a QB. He can never lead the team or break the team the way a QB can.

  89. Cerberus says: Aug 9, 2010 2:35 PM

    The Jets biggest mistake was lying to Revis and telling him that he is better than Asomugha; because he isn’t, and the lack of passes thrown at Asomugha compared to Revis speaks volumes.

  90. Raiderfankirk says: Aug 9, 2010 2:37 PM

    I have the answer. TRADE Revis to Oakland. Paided, problem solved. Say anything about Al u want, he wants to win more than make money. All hail AL DAVIS football god

    I disagree – Sure, If you fear the Jets that much, heck wish them the worst signing ALL the talent they have gathered…
    BUT, If your team is good and has good young players – I’d worry that they too wanted a new deal with 3 years left…
    And Frankly, If I were looking at a player with Revis’ agent, I’d look the other way…. This guy pulls this #### every time, they held out for the 1st deal they got and the whole Kendall thing was a lying cluster#### as well on their part – another guy with a new deal looking for more money when the wind blows.

  93. rraider says: Aug 9, 2010 3:01 PM

    Nnamdi got paid because of his value to his team… the Jets have a better overall team and hence revis’ value to his team may not be the same…………………Likewise with Champ Bailey……….If the Jets dont want to pay then dont but blaming AL Davis is a pretty weasely negotiating ploy on their part.

  97. Real Football Fan says: Aug 9, 2010 3:52 PM

    One other thing that irks me about complaints with the Asomugha deal is that the structure is the fairest deal that it could be for both sides. What’s the difference between Asomugha signing a 3 year and essentially $45 million guaranteed contract as opposed to a 6 year/$90 million contract with $45 guaranteed? It’s not front loaded, it doesn’t have fake years and value on the end of the contract….the contract is the contract. It should be the NFL model for contracts actually, unless owners want to guarantee a guy all of their contract, why should they control a player years into a contract when the deal is no longer market value?
    With a rookie scale in place, they’d get less guaranteed money for 3 or 4 years at the beginning of their career. By then, they’ve either proven themselves for another 3-4 year deal for significantly more or they’ve washed out of the league with a modest investment from their drafting team. If they’re fortunate, they can sign one more 3-5 year contract, which usually takes a player to the end of their career. All sides are happy, veterans get paid more, and players aren’t screwed and stars like Chris Johnson, Nick Mangold, and Revis are paid according to their performance while draft disappointments like Darrin McFadden, Jamal Anderson, and Vernon Gholston are not rewarded for just being high draft picks. This would be their make or break years, and I think most Jets fans would agree Gholston doesn’t fit their plans, McFadden will prove to be a bust if Jamarcus Russell’s departure doesn’t help him become a 1,000 yard back this year, and I don’t think most Falcons fans believe Jamal Anderson will be embodying Reggie White after his first three disappointing seasons.
    Right now, whether a player is compensated for becoming a star regardless of draft position is strictly at the discretion of their organization, like Jacksonville giving Jones-Drew more money but Tennessee essentially choosing not to do the same for Chris Johnson. Do you think Johnson will have the same value in 3 more years considering a RB’s life span in the league. The Titans won’t care about his 2000 yard season when negotiations come around in 3 years, especially if he begins to slow down. Why not compensate players for what they do now? Players by and large have shown what they’re going to be by year three and definitely by year four. I agree a year by year contract system is too drastic, but no player should be held to more than a 3 year commitment, nor should a team. Right now the teams by and large have the ability for an out after 3-4 years, while the players do not. That’s just not fair. Essentially the Jets and Titans are saying to Revis and Johnson, tough that you’re actually among the league’s best at your positions, you should have done better in college because we have your rights for 3 more years and will pay you those modest salaries until then.
    It also would improve the product because without the huge rookie investments, we could go back to younger players actually earning their way onto the field instead of being a necessity because they’re paid so much. Could you imagine a league where young QB’s actually need to learn an offense for 2 or 3 years before we see some of these youngsters trot out there because they have a $60 million contract for doing nothing in the league?

    You know, this is the kind of issue that holds up CBA negotiations. Players who are locked into a contract they have outperformed. As much as I want to say “zip it and play out your contract”, you have to allow for these guys frustrations. But this can be easily fixed…
    If a player performs in the top 10% of his position while not being payed in the top 40%, he has the right to void his current contract and become a restricted FA. Simple, clean, and within the rules, meaning less bad press all around.
    That said, I have had enough about players saying they want to be the highest paid at their position, and how not being the highest paid shows a lack of respect. How is Revis going to show up at the Pro Bowl and look Nnamdi and Champ in the eye and say “I’m better than you and I find it insulting that you get paid more than I do.” Give me a break!! And what message does that send to your team?!? “I want 20% of the salary cap tied up in my salary, and to hell with paying the rest of you or adding more quality players.”
    Let them void their contracts and go find a new one. But here’s a thought…. They can’t void their contracts until June 1st. See what kind of deals they pull in then. They will get paid more, based on their performance, just like they wanted. And then we don’t have to waste time talking about this crap.

What totally uninformed and bigoted reason do you have for that?
    As for your other noise: I am a loyal and proud member of the Raider Nation, the Black Hole and will be forever. As for you and other short bus riders who don’t appreciate Al (AKA God) and all he has done you can do everyone a favor and hoop your forehead.

    To : aldavisisjerk. I have 4 seats in the black hole ! I will look around for the dumbest person around, recoginze you and then say hello to the one of the few remaining retards that buy into Dead Als bull—t ! He is pissing on your leg and convinced you it is raining ! and I am the ignorant hick ? Look forward to meeting you at the home opener. You will be the guy with a pantfull of pee !

    Tango the retard: Yes, you are the ignorant hick. See how stupid you are? I’ve told you that so many times and you still need to be reminded of that fact. You also need to be reminded that you STILL haven’t explained this whole AlDavisIsAMuslim bull. What is that supposed to mean you ignorant, banjo playing hillbilly?
    Stop embarrassing yourself you idiot. You constantly piss and moan about God (AKA Al) and then you publicly admit you have four seats in the Black Hole! And you actually have the balls to wonder why I keep saying you’re a retarded son of an equally retarded whore? Get a clue dummy! By the way, are you that fat that you need four seats you pile of crap?

    To: Aldavisisagaypimp. Just keep talking. Ignorant hick, stupid,hillbilly, retarded, dummy ? No need to self describe. See in the hole, piss pants!

    Tango the retard: STILL avoiding the question. I’m not surprised since you are an idiotic, overstuffed, fatass pig that takes up four seats in the black hole that could be used by real fans.
    Believe me you pathetic pile of crap I will keep talking. I will always be the first to tell you that you’re a walking abortion, an embarassment to yourself, the Raiders and all REAL Raiders fans.
    As usual all you have is regurgitating what I’ve already used to describe your ignorant ass. Further proof of what a dummy you are.
    Put down the ding dongs and twinkies orca and pick up a book once in a while and your retarded ass might actually learn something. (I seriously doubt it, though you retarded hillbilly hick moron)

    To”aldavisisaretardhillbillyfag” Dead Al is a jwerk. You know it and so do just about any informed Raider fan. You can see me in the hole as i am the one surrounded by 3 gorgeous woman that also hate the idiots like you that buy into Dead Al’s BS. Having dinner this weekend with a Raider starter. How about you ?

    Tango the retard: You obese, dreaming pig pile of crap. I’m not sure what’s funnier: your claim of even knowing three gorgeous women, that you have even seen three gorgeous women (other than in your Penthouse’s), that you know any Raider (let alone a starter), or that any Raider would associate with a beached whale like you.
    By the way, real original on the name calling. I wish I would have thought of such original things to say, you blob.
    I see you still can’t spell to save your worthless ass. What exactly is a “jwerk” you idiotic, ignorant puke?
    Still not willing to explain what you mean by AlDavisIsAMuslim, huh? I’m not surprised you ignorant blimp.
    The only thing that an informed Raider fan knows is that there’s no room for a pig taking up four seats at the stadium when real Raider fans could be using those seats.

    To: aldvisishopefullydeadsoon. Jwerk is exactly what are ! It is a jerk that has been brainwashed by the likes of Dead Al. Ask for a vote in the hole and see how many side with you or me ? Tears will flow down your sorry face! I am in Blackhawk and know several current and past Raiders and if you want come to the falls clubhouse on Saturday night maybe you can get an autograph! Then again, I would need to leave your name at the gate. Should I use Herrera or Trask ?

  118. AlDavisIsGod says: Aug 12, 2010 10:07 PM

    Tango the bloated pig, retard, ignorant douchebag: What you are is in denial you delusional, fat pig. Yeah, sure, you know lots of Raiders, just like you know lots of attractive women. Sure, I believe that. Keep dreaming about losing enough weight that sooner or later they’ll be able to wheel your fat carcass out of your mommy’s basement, loser.
    Still haven’t tried taking an online English course, I see, you dummy. “Jwerk” is a word is it you moronic scumbag? Ask for a vote and see how many side with you or me. On your planet that’s a question? Question marks are only used after questions, you simple minded window licker.
    You’re in Blackhawk, huh? The only thing you’re in is the cheesecake of the month club, orca.
    You still haven’t answered what you mean by AlDavisIsAMuslim. Why are you so reluctant to tell me what that ignorant redneck garbage is about you schmuck?
    I know you’re a complete idiot so I must repeat myself: You’ve got nothing, you are nothing.

    To:aldavisisamuslim. Have had a blast but time to end this. By the way, dead Al’s trade for our new QB really paid off last night. Sorry, I forgot, dead Al only takes credit for those that do well ! Bad performances are somebody elses fault ! Take care
