Mangold, not Revis, is the Jet who's close to getting a new deal

NFL_mangold.jpgWith Tim Cowlishaw continuing to insist that the Jets could be getting a deal done with cornerback Darrelle Revis, we can now say with a very high if not absolute degree of certainty that Cowlishaw is in the right church, but that he’s perched in the wrong pew.

No progress has been made between the Jets and Revis.  Andrea Kremer of NBC reports from the pre-game sidelines in San Francisco that, indeed, there is no truth to the Internet chatter of Revis getting a new deal this week.  (We’ve separately confirmed that nothing is going on right now between the Jets and Revis, not that Andrea’s report needed confirmation.)

The progress is being made, we’re told by multiple sources, between the Jets and center Nick Mangold.

Mangold is one of the so-called “Core Four” players who, according to Revis, believe they were promised new deals.  So far, only left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson has gotten one.  (The other is linebacker David Harris, who has to be feeling a little like Shemp Howard right now.)

Revis held out, and Mangold opted not to do so.  He said earlier this month that he’s “not happy about” his situation, but that he decided to play out the final year of his rookie contract, at a base salary $3.3 million.

It doesn’t mean a new deal will be done this week, or for that matter this year.  But progress is being made between the Jets and Mangold, and the Jets apparently are motivated to make something happen before the next episode of Hard Knocks.

To find out whether it all happens, stay tuned.  To PFT.  Or NBC.  Or HBO.  Or all three.

UPDATE:  Multiple other outlets are now reporting the news, and none of them have given us credit.  Even though most of them started chasing it when they saw our report.

    good move by jets. mangold didn’t hold out and is a great player..how he lasted til 29 is beyond me!

  3. Nosredna says: Aug 22, 2010 6:55 PM

    ……and of course since PFT is owned by NBC/Universal, that automatically makes Andrea believable over Cowlishaw.
    As for getting separate confirmation, writers at PFT couldn’t confirm that any given day of the week ends in “Y”

    I would hope it is for Revis, but it would be nice to reward a guy that actually shows up to camp

    Florio, you must be on drugs. How else could you write these two sentences one after another?
    “It doesn’t mean a new deal will be done this week, or for that matter this year. But progress is being made between the Jets and Mangold, and the Jets apparently are motivated to make something happen before the next episode of Hard Knocks.”

    Hey Marcus McNeill and Vincent Jackson, take some notes. He let it be known he wanted an extension but he showed up to camp and got to work. It’s amazing how that sort of attitude endears a player to ownership.

    Rewarding a loyal employee over someone under contract who won’t show up for work. Good Job, Jets. Sometimes, even the Jets can get one right.

    Mangold is handling his situation the professional way. MEvis is not.
    Pay the classy player, and punish the a-hole in the pocketbook.

    Nice Shemp reference Florimoe.

    Mr. Florio, you are getting better and better by the day. Amazing how much drama is coming from one camp!!!!! I’ll bet they are just loving all the attention they’re getting because it’s taking away the fact that they suck. Did anyone else see that game last night? A QB with seven games and a rookie QB looked like pro-bowlers against that defense with 129 passing and 82 rushing yards.

  11. 1/2MaN1/2aMaZING says: Aug 22, 2010 7:47 PM

    Nick MANgold? sounds like a pornstar

  12. MrJames says: Aug 22, 2010 8:00 PM

    You see what happened here was Florio was reporting a story
    “t doesn’t mean a new deal will be done this week, or for that matter this year. But progress is being made between the Jets and Mangold,”
    Everything seems fine right? But lets take a look at the replay
    “t doesn’t mean a new deal will be done this week, or for that matter this year. But progress is being made between the Jets and Mangold,”
    Notice there is a comma where there should be a period. You hate to see that, and you know what that means. Conspiracy/Speculation is surely coming. And sure enough it does.
    “and the Jets apparently are motivated to make something happen before the next episode of Hard Knocks.”
    And there it is. You feel bad because you know he has been working on this problem and just when it seemed that he had gotten through a Jets story a comma in place of a period leads to disaster.

    Revis is overrated. Let his ass sit.

    “It doesn’t mean a new deal will be done this week, or for that matter this year.”
    Nice “reporting.”

    koa im not sure if u realized but this is the preseason.
    U IDIOT THEY GOT A FIELD GOAL AGAINST US. what the hell do yards matter when you CANT GET ANY POINTS.
    how are you a football fan?

  16. NYJALLFINGDAY says: Aug 22, 2010 8:16 PM

    Lmfao I love it, Jets offense has one bad game in the preseason and now we’re going to go 0 and 16. Chill out haters, defense and special teams did well, and Sanchez did well the week before, so wait until friday to start smack talking.

    “He let it be known he wanted an extension but he showed up to camp and got to work. It’s amazing how that sort of attitude endears a player to ownership.”
    Will ownership still give you a contract if you blow your knee out during training camp/pre-season games?

  19. JackBurden says: Aug 22, 2010 8:37 PM

    It is better if Jets wait for final episode of Hard Knocks to sign Revis…it will help their ratings…isn’t that all that matters anymore?

    Neil Schwartz again???? What a sham……
    Next time you’re talking to Neil ask him why so many of his players hold out and why teams are lining up to avoid ever having to deal with him again…
    Between Being Flat out obvious and sources of my own, I’d bet big money NYJ and SDC never draft a Schwartz player Ever again…
    Ask him what his next career might be – But, I assume he’s looking to retire off a Revis deal.

  21. steveinohio says: Aug 22, 2010 8:50 PM

    I think Mangold is a great player but he shouldn’t have punched out that horse in Blazing Saddles.

  22. cousinrk says: Aug 22, 2010 9:16 PM

    Maybe no one gives you or your B.S. site any credit because you have no credibility except with Jets-haters who drink whatever kool-aid you spew out.
    Can you imagine if the Jets sign Mangold and Revis this week? How pissed off will Florio be? What will he have left to bash the Jets about? I’m sure he’ll rip the contracts apart blaming the Jets for trying to make a good deal for themselves like he did when they signed D’Brick. I can’t wait till they sign these guys, so we can finally let PFT and Florio go back into the hole they crawled out of

    @Jets321 yeah I don’t know the difference between mangold and revis. Please… – Tim Cowlishaw via Twitter

    HellRelle
    I can’t believe that superbowl bound defense allowed a FG. And two QBs with a combined SEVEN nfl games to get 200+ yards when they were GIVING the jests the game right and left. How many muffed punts did they have? Trust me, I read enough trash from you jests fans when the Fins didn’t do so well last week, so don’t think you aren’t going to enjoy the same.

    Check out his sister, Holly Mangold… this girl makes Nick Mangold look like a small child.

    Florio Reports:
    UPDATE: Multiple other outlets are now reporting the news, and none of them have given us credit. Even though most of them started chasing it when they saw our report.
    ******************************************
    Florio, Its nice how you always remember to pat yourself on the back…How would you even know anyone saw the report here 1st? Isn’t that kinda like how you said you confirmed the same thing Andrea Kremer di? Maybe your an F’n liar too…It always easy to say “Oh yeah, I knew that too, I was just about to say it…DUH”

    @BigBolt
    If you think anything will endear you to A J Smith you are sadly mistaken. He only does what he’s forced to do and sometimes not even that to the detriment of the franchise.

  28. harloeisdead says: Aug 23, 2010 4:21 AM

    Wahhh no one gives me credit wahhh
    Maybe because you don’t report, you speculate.

  29. Don says: Aug 23, 2010 5:25 AM

    Well Florio, for once you are right. You did report this first and others should have credited you for it.
