Darrelle Revis on new labor agreement: “It’ll get done”

At a time when the state of the NFL has forced at least one player to obtain a $500,000 loan at a whopping 23-percent interest rate, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis feels just fine about his monetary situation.

“I’m financially stable,” said Revis, who scored a four-year, $46 million contract after a lengthy holdout last September. “I’m good. When the lockout is over, it’s over.”

Promisingly at first glance, Revis believes “guys feel this lockout is going to be done soon.”

Unfortunately, Revis admitted to ESPNNewYork.com that he has no insider knowledge.

He’s speculating.

“I think it’s going to get done,” Revis said of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. “All deals get done. Both sides have to find out what’s best for each other.

“It’ll get done.”

    He doesn’t give a crap. He already got his $$$ with his own personal little labor strike before last season. He couldn’t care less. And that also means he couldn’t less about any of the other players either.

    I wonder how much Revis has leveraged against his (possible) future earnings. He may have not yet realized that he’s not getting any wealthier by spending money on Range Rovers.

    You hit it right on the head man, this article makes Darrelle sound like he doesn’t care about his fellow NFL brethren very much, but then again,if my work signed me to a 4yr-46 mil deal, I probably wouldn’t be very worried about the other plumbers at my company.

    This guy is a rat! He belongs in the sewers of NY.

    Until I hear both sides say it HAS to be done, I don’t give a s***

    I had a range rover. They are total crap. Always in the shop. Sucker plan for the newly paid.

    I imagine he can “get by” on $11.5 million a year. He’s right about one thing. It will get settled. Its only a question of “when”, not “if”. Unfortunately, there won’t be any sense of urgency on either side until it becomes a serious threat that games will be missed.

    Revis said: “It’ll get done.”

    Yea, when he and a lot of players tell D. Smith to get a deal done. Otherwise, this mess is going to last a long time.

    FACT: D. Smith walked out of CBA negotiations, decertified the union, had certain players file suit, and then did not attend at least one court ordered mediation session.

    Fans, players, and PFT employees that treally want football need to tell D. Smith to get his butt into negotiations.

    wait so d revis decided his contract wasnt working for him and decided he just wasnt gonna play unless the contract was retructured? well he must have had an opt out clause, oh wait no he did not have an opt out clause but he decided he would just not play unless they redid his contract. so all the people that hate the league for opting out must really hate revis for what he did

  10. august1969 says: May 21, 2011 6:20 PM

    i feel so much better

  11. dangcote says: May 21, 2011 6:25 PM

    Of courses a deal will get done, it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. It is when the deal will get done, will it be sooner or later. That’s what fans want to know!

    I looked at my (crystal) balls and saw that football will resume shortly after the Supreme Court rules an the lawsuits in the spring of 2016

    There’s Revis on his island again..

    Anyone think that the wide rift between owners and players may have a racial angle? Do you think this big of a chasm would exist if the players were of the same stock as the owners?

    Bear in mind the “slave” comments by AP and co (with a special nod to Warren Sapp as well).

    yeah bro the owners r willing to lose milions of dollars just cuz most players aint white. makes a lot of sense

    Revis might have had the greatest year in NFL history for a DB to finish the season with 0 INTs.

    Is this a serious question? Race doesn’t make a difference. While the players have never said what they want other than the old CBA, I believe that this mess is over green dollars – not black or white dollars, but green dollars.

    FACT: D. Smith walked out of CBA negotiations, decertified the union, had certain players file suit, and then did not attend at least one court ordered mediation session.

    If fans, players, and PFT employees really want football, then they need to tell D. Smith to get his butt into negotiations.

    Why would race have anything to do with it? While African Americans are the majority in the league, there is still a large percentage of other ethnicities in the league.

    What have you seen thus far that would make you pose such a question?

    That picture just sums it up right there.

  22. ravensfan4life52 says: May 21, 2011 10:42 PM

    @str82dvd

    no, not at all. anyone who thinks so is stupid. there are black and white players and well there are only white owners. but still. this has nothing to do with racism and anyone who says it does is just fishing for a reason to hate the owners.

  23. thefiesty1 says: May 21, 2011 11:12 PM

    Of course it will end as soon as the players get their heads OU of their asses and get rid of DeMo.

    Any new CBA MUST contain a stipulation banning Bad Newz Vick from the NFL. :-x

    Am I the only one who wishes the interviewer would have posed questions to Revis the way that one reporter did when he asked Revis about all those Wrs a couple years ago?

    reporter: De Smith
    Revis: competitor
    reporter: Jeff Pash
    Revis: slouch
    reporter: Roger Goodell
    Revis: slouch
    reporter: George Atallah
    Revis: competitor
    etc etc. :P
