Jets, Revis finally get a deal done

So as G.M. Mike Tannenbaum was telling the media that the Jets would be “moving forward” without cornerback Darrelle Revis, the truth was that coach Rex Ryan had spent much of the day trying to ensure that the team finally would move forward with him.

Per multiple reports, the Jets and Revis has agreed to terms on a new deal.

Yours truly had called it a night — sleep happens — and the chain of e-mails and texts came through in this order:  (1) e-mail from Adam Schefter of ESPN at 12:30 a.m. ET; (2) call from Jay Glazer of FOX at 12:33 p.m. ET; (3) confirmation from league source at 12:38 a.m. ET; (4) rough terms from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News at 2:31 a.m. ET.

Mehta reports that it’s a four-year, $46 million deal with $32 million in guaranteed money.  Technically, it’s a seven-year contract that will “almost certainly” void to four.

But it appears that the first word of the deal came from Revis himself on his Twitter account, and some point between midnight and 12:30 a.m. ET:  “To my family, neil, & john I love u guys I’m comin home baby!!! Revis Island LET’S GO.”

The Jets already have conducted a conference call to announce the deal.  “Barring something unforeseen, we expect Darrelle to be here [Monday],” Tannenbaum said, via Glazer’s report on the deal.  ”This is an intermediate step to what we hope is an entire career of
Darrelle as a Jet.  For him to retire a Jet, for him
to hopefully go to the Hall of Fame one day as a Jet and for him to be
in our ring of honor.”

Per Schefter, Ryan spent much of Saturday with Revis and his uncle, Sean Gilbert.  After the meeting ended, the two sides concluded that progress had been made, and that their differences could be bridged.  On Sunday, the two sides talked throughout the day and finally reached a deal near midnight — both literally and figuratively, given that preparations soon will begin in earnest for the Week One opener against the Ravens.

    Jay Glazer, 12:33 am. Get some rest, sleepy head.

  5. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Sep 6, 2010 5:26 AM

    Karma is a real MF’er. Both sides come out looking like ass clowns in this one. Better hope Revis stays healthy…and happy.

  6. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Sep 6, 2010 5:29 AM

    ESPN is reporting that Rex was planning to stand firm in his meeting Revis, but caved when Revis tempted him with an ice-cream sandwich and a copy of “Hustler”.

  7. marktg30 says: Sep 6, 2010 5:30 AM

    He better hope to GOD that he performs like the best CB in the league. Otherwise he will get booed like crazy.

  8. BigMikey says: Sep 6, 2010 5:31 AM

    Five bucks says he pulls a hammy and misses three games.
    Not wishing it, just wouldn’t be surprised.

    You are obviously as dumb as you sound. The Jets stood strong and Revis couldn’t sit out for a year so he caved. Well played by the jets organization.

    Between watching this flash all night (I work overnight on holidays as my VP is a pussy like Florio) on NFL Network and ESPN while not being listed on the mobile PFT that I go to frequently, and the fact that no staff member ever manned up once in the article and stated that all of their (and the likely underpaid underlings) speculation was wrong…
    Florio, how does the mighty cock taste? It must be good as you and the rest of the PFT crew took voluminous pulls all summer as to what the idiots running the Jets would do.
    I vividly remember your staff, and commentators, stating they would pay the .50 over Aso…what happened? That NBC money gets rounded off I guess. Or you must be waiting on everyone to chip in and offset Revis’ shitty deal like the Jets are.
    This was and is an opinion of PFT and the crap that it has become…that is all.

  17. GreenAsGrass says: Sep 6, 2010 6:49 AM

    It’s finally over. Defensively, the Jets are rock solid now.
    Any chance Revis can play QB also for Jets???

  18. Burnum says: Sep 6, 2010 7:13 AM

    Now lets hope he gets burned by The Beast twice a year…

    …coming from someone who thinks others are fools.
    Listen Jackass, this whole circus exposed more of what that organization and that player is about. Read the other comments and try not to be too much a fanboy. Don’t drink the Koolaid.
    Ha, ha.

  20. He Hate Me says: Sep 6, 2010 8:28 AM

    Now he is going to pull a hamstring in week one because he isn’t in shape.

  21. Richm2257 says: Sep 6, 2010 8:39 AM

    Hall of Fame???? They are seriously talking HALL OF FAME??????
    The guy had what, one decent season, and they’re talking Hall of Fame?

    If you are gonnna post in the comments with the big boys at least use the right words.

  23. Jaydub says: Sep 6, 2010 9:24 AM

    Regardless of this happening, and all of you Jests losers busting a nut on each other over it, you and your overhyped bunch of wannabe’s are still going to fail in every way
    7-9 tops, and in January, you’ll all still be unemployed
    Oh, and the rent is now 5 days late, which means another late fee. Drop off the ca$h at John Mara’s office…..yesterday.

  24. Jack Burton says: Sep 6, 2010 9:27 AM

    He’s gonna mail it in before he plays a snap. “you’re not on the island anymore.”

  25. EverybodyGotAIDS says: Sep 6, 2010 9:32 AM

    Damn. A week ago I said that Revis was good for a couple wins, and that the Jets were staring at 6-10 without him.
    Well congratulations Jets fans….you just crawled back to .500

  26. Joe C says: Sep 6, 2010 9:32 AM

    So let me get this straight…$32M guaranteed to a cornerback? And the players are saying they don’t make enough?
    Yeah, it sounds like lockout city in 2011 to me, because that kind of spending is simply unsustainable, no matter what the players think.
    As a sidebar, they really better hope Cromartie is as good as he thinks he is, because Oakland gave Asomugha $15M and if my memory serves have still not won more than 8 games in a really long time.
    Two people who have to be REALLY happy about this? Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.
    If Revis gets $32M guaranteed, how much do you think they will get? Seriously? $50M?

  27. Krow says: Sep 6, 2010 9:34 AM

    “We’re moving on without him.” Suc’k suc’k suc’k…

  28. FinFan68 says: Sep 6, 2010 9:44 AM

    I’m glad to see them compromise; still too much for a CB but not as bad as what he wanted. No excuses now.

  29. Steeler fans are tools says: Sep 6, 2010 9:52 AM

    He is NOT Asomugha. I hate seeing that comparison. Put together a few more good seasons then we can talk.

  30. sportsdrenched says: Sep 6, 2010 9:58 AM

    I’m not a Jets Fan, but as an NFL fan glad to see this deal got done.
    Although, the Dick’s Sporting Goods commercials would be more amusing if he weren’t playing.

  31. lee says: Sep 6, 2010 10:14 AM

    I hope all the jets pass away.

  32. screaming sheep says: Sep 6, 2010 10:14 AM

    Better hope he doesn’t play like Uncle Sean did after he got paid.

  33. irish4life says: Sep 6, 2010 10:16 AM

    Leave it to Rex Ryan to make something happen. He goes and visits Revis and all of a sudden a deal is signed.
    With Revis being signed they can now blitz like crazy. Without Revis the Jets no longer have the ability to blitz like you are accustomed to seeing from Ryan defense. The NFL better watch out.

  34. Two-A-Days says: Sep 6, 2010 10:22 AM

    Yea Yea…Revis is in ….Jets D is gonna be top 5, but Rex is still a fat azz that does nothing but run his mouth when he isnt filling it with pretzel M&M’s, and the Offense is f’ing RETCHED!!! Now that the Hard Knocks Cameras are out of there Mike Tanenbalm can commence jerking it to the Revis Poster in his office!!!

  35. irish4life says: Sep 6, 2010 10:23 AM

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention that the Jets defense needs to be blitz happy because the offense doesn’t look like its going to keep their end of the bargain. The Jets defense is gonna be a top 5 unit while the offense could be in the bottom 5.

    With all the interceptions that Taco Breath throws the defense will be on the field 90% of the time.

    Boy are the Jets top heavy salary-wise in their skill positions. They have no way to hold the fort should someone get hurt. They’ll have top-tier starters, with nobody backing them up. Talk about rolling the dice…
    The GM will take the fall if a key player or two goes out on injury…rightfully so.

    LOL…and I thought the Bears led the league in management idiots.
