Darrelle Revis not concerned what fans think about a holdout

As Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis continues to be coy about whether he will report to training camp or hold out for a new contract, one thing is clear: Revis doesn’t care what the fans think.

On Twitter, when a fan called Revis out and used an obscenity to tell him the fans will be done with him if he holds out again this year, Revis’s answer was two words long: “shut up.”

Revis also told Gary Myers of the New York Daily News that he’s not concerned about any backlash because he doesn’t think the backlash could get any worse than it got during training camp in 2010, when Revis stood his ground, refused to report, and ultimately was rewarded with a new four-year contract.

I was getting death threats and everything,” Revis said of the reaction to his 2010 holdout. “I’m getting stuff now on Twitter.”

That stuff isn’t the kind of stuff that will influence Revis to report to training camp on time and under his current contract. Revis recently referred to himself as “a corporation,” and he’s going to make a business decision.

    good for revis stepping up his ground. it’s his life, let him decide what he wants to do. also that person who tweeted him has revis as his main twitter picture. it will all get worked out one way or another.

  2. nolahxc says: Jun 6, 2012 10:24 AM

    Didn’t this guy just hold out a couple seasons ago?

    I guess when you see that your GM is a push-over, you might as well…

  3. dexterismyhero says: Jun 6, 2012 10:25 AM

    I hope Rex just sits on your face and crushes it
    Revis. You held out and got a new contract and now you want another. I hope your corporation goes under.

  4. bigjdve says: Jun 6, 2012 10:26 AM

    He is a Corporation, however he should be smarter. A Corporation doesn’t alienate it’s client base.

    He should also remember that if he keeps doing the hold out every couple of years, sooner or later he will find it difficult to find people willing to pay him.

    Tell him to look at Terrell Owens.

  5. jarathen says: Jun 6, 2012 10:27 AM

    What an incredible lack of class this joker has. He should be run out of the game if he tries to hold out again.

  6. larrydavid7000 says: Jun 6, 2012 10:28 AM

    and i could care about him as well.he’ s a loser.!!!!!!!!

    Strip that C off his chest. He’s just an individual.

  10. n0hopeleft says: Jun 6, 2012 10:31 AM

    What Revis should care about is everyone (refs) being aware of his tactics.

    Dude pulls jerseys, bars arms, and interferes more than any elite DB in the league.

    Watch the tape.

  11. kleppnasty says: Jun 6, 2012 10:32 AM

    As annoying as it is to see a guy hold out, he is completely right. Why should he care what fans think now, he has a small window to maximize his earnings, and if/when he gets back on the field, everyone will forget the hold out as soon as he starts getting INTs.

    Though as someone who does not like the Jets, I am hoping that the lockout lasts into the season…

  12. cheapseater says: Jun 6, 2012 10:33 AM

    Stevie Johnson, Inc. was “receiving” rave reviews even though the Revis Corporation thought they had “cornered” the market.

  13. tinbender2000 says: Jun 6, 2012 10:34 AM

    When even your own teams fans can’t stand you, you know you’ve reached the pinnacle of Prickdom.

  14. jmagnet28 says: Jun 6, 2012 10:34 AM

    The fact of the matter is, if Revis didn’t like the contract offer from two years ago then he shouldn’t have signed.

    This guy has become a real piece of work and quite the diva at that. I’m a Jets fan but I’ve had just about enough of him with this contact crap.

    Believe it or not, it’s not shutdown corners you need to win the big one. It’s pass rushers. A CB like Revis is great but at the end of the day he can only eliminate exactly one player from the opposition. The Giants had a secondary worthy of Conf USA last year but bc they had several premier pass rushers they were able to win the SB

  15. orthomarine says: Jun 6, 2012 10:34 AM

    Cut this jackass….. He’s talented, but he is proving to be the TO of the secondary…..

  16. Slackmo says: Jun 6, 2012 10:35 AM

    He’s a corporation that owns its own island.

  17. donterrelli says: Jun 6, 2012 10:36 AM

    Really classy guy. He’s one of those that plays for the money, not the love of the game. Ever hear him talk? He sounds like Morris Claiborne.

  18. jdvallee says: Jun 6, 2012 10:36 AM

    As a Patriot fan, all I can say is, “You SHOULD hold out Darrelle!”

  19. beerbaron says: Jun 6, 2012 10:37 AM

    Typical me-first attitude from a Jet. When your best players put themselves ahead of the team by holding out or complaining in the huddle, it trickles down through the entire roster. Younger players take their cues from the veterans who produce on the field and get big contracts.

    Sanchez can hold as many “Jets West” camps as he wants, but the team won’t respect him like they do Revis until his play gives them a reason to.

  20. jameswestphal says: Jun 6, 2012 10:37 AM

    Say want you want, but this is the type of leadership that has allowed the Jets to win the last three Super Bowls.

  21. vikinganswer says: Jun 6, 2012 10:38 AM

    Go figure. An athelete that doesnt care about the people who help pay his salary. Too bad. Great corner that is apparently no better a person than TO or Chad Johnson.

  22. bearsrulepackdrool says: Jun 6, 2012 10:41 AM

    I wouldn’t care either. Fans are only loyal to the team. If a player leaves and the team has success they forget all about the player. Meanwhile the player will be struggling to feed his family.

    Do what’s best for your family. If you go holdout then come back to the team and continue to play at a high level. The fans won’t even notice.

  23. packerjer says: Jun 6, 2012 10:42 AM

    I sort of get the holdout in 2010. He feels he outperformed his rookie contract and asked for a new one. But then when you agree to that new contact, you can’t turn around and say it’s not good enough 2 years later. That’s rediculous.

  24. censoredpost says: Jun 6, 2012 10:43 AM

    No wonder his initials are DR. Cause he’s like a surgeon when it comes to cutting up an old contract. Get paid player, hold out for a Phin fan!

  25. eaglesw00t says: Jun 6, 2012 10:45 AM

    Nnamdi may not be exactly as good as Revis, but I will take Nnamdi over Revis 8 days a week.

    I want players on my team that actually want to be there. Not just want to be the highest paid player in the league/on the team, etc.

  26. djrando7 says: Jun 6, 2012 10:49 AM

    I have said this for awhile now. Revis is by far the most overrated player in the NFL. He is childish and a punk. He deserves to be b-slapped by Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan. This kind of behavior from one player should not be tolerated by any organization.

    And one last thing to you Revis, you are not a corporation. Corporations care about the people that work for them, and make them money, I.E. the FANS. Get a life dude. You are a disgrace to the NFL.

  27. shockgee says: Jun 6, 2012 10:49 AM

    JERK.

  28. winninitall says: Jun 6, 2012 10:53 AM

    As great as a player Revis is id rather see Woody Johnson stay strong and wait this out. I guess if the Jets were smart they would of signed a solid CB to fill in as a JIC.

    As the team as a whole they will be putting in there a lot of time and effort, just wait and see how influential Revis’s voice will be in the locker room .

  29. anactualnflowner says: Jun 6, 2012 10:53 AM

    If Revis cares about his image at all, he made a mistake signing that last contract knowing he’d have to hold out this year.

    The Jets just plain made a mistake structuring his contract the way they did. They also don’t realize the value of distractions and having chemistry in the locker room.

    Rex Ryan’s legacy will be a great defensive coach that created/allowed to many distractions to keep him from getting to the Super Bowl. Also, going all in with Sanchez and his last ditch effort with Tebow will not help either.

    Revis last hold out gave him an injury and ZERO INT for the season

    Hold out till they break the bank, Revis. Dumping all that salary cap money into your account when they could be using it on pass rush and protections is a brilliant move. Eagles had best CB tandem in the league and didn’t make the playoffs. Most overrated position on the field.

  32. bigjdve says: Jun 6, 2012 10:59 AM

  33. jtd44 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:00 AM

    If the NFL had guaranteed contracts I could understand some of the fans’ anger, but they don’t. So when an athlete has to use the only leverage they have, holding out, they should be allowed to do it. For those who have a problem with this go back to your mom’s basement because you are just jealous.

  34. dd10er says: Jun 6, 2012 11:02 AM

    This is why the Jets will always be behind the Patriots. One individual is not bigger than the TEAM, only with the Jets who are full of individuals and me first players. Go Pats!

    What a joke this franchise is, I guess it bodes well for the New York City mindset though. I deserve more, Its all about me, screw anybody who helped me get here, as long as I get more than THAT guy I’m happy.

  36. erod22 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:07 AM

    Hey, Revis, ever heard of living up to your word?

    This isn’t your rookie deal you’re holding out on. This is the one you signed in good conscience.

  37. shaunypoo says: Jun 6, 2012 11:11 AM

    I think he has a right to try to demand more money. Should he be doing it? No, but if he thinks he wants more and he thinks he can get more, then try for more.

    I agree with treating your career like a corporation, but at least run it better. I also think that it is fair if teams want to low ball players or try to get them cheap – they actually are a corporation.

    Don’t applaud Revis for acting like a corporation then chide the teams for acting like a corporation.

    I don’t think Revis should be holding out, AGAIN, but he should be allowed to.

    I said after they leave the team. Some are struggling some aren’t. Ask T.O. All the athletes in bankruptcy. The athletes you don’t hear about. Those having mental issues due to concussions. Up until recently no one cared about it. Still no one cares. They just feel sorry and worry about their own kids playing football.

    There are thousands of former athletes out there. You think they’re all living it up after they leave a team?

    ___________________________________
    I agree with you 100%, but as the Jets D has been to date under RR, I think a CB like Revis allows them to do what they’ve done. Perhaps the drafting of Coples signals a change there.

  40. bigwill90 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:14 AM

    NFL players should excercise their right to holdout for more money. Teams routinely excercise their right to cut under performing players, so why not holdout if you outperform your contract? Plaers only get 1 maybe 2 good contracts during their career. They typically retired by 35 or 36, they have to think about their families. I never begrudge a player for doing what they have to do to get the maximum amount of money because you can bet if you don`t perform, the teams will cut you quick!

    ——————————————————–

    Apparently it happens to around 70% of the players after they’ve been out of the league for 4+ years. They go bankrupt or have major issues.

    My understanding is that Revis and the Jets structured this contract knowing that it would need to be redone in 2 years. I don’t understand why it was done that way, and I think he should show up for training camp and renegotiate there.

  42. truthhurtstoo says: Jun 6, 2012 11:19 AM

    of course he’s not…. he’s MEVIS after all. Can’t wait for thi trainwreck to start! 4-12 in 2012

  43. billsfan27 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:19 AM

    Revis continues to be the only player on this entire team worth anything. Especially a raise. So, naturally, the Jets won’t give it to him.

  44. theandy59 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:26 AM

    Revis will not hold out. If he does, the Jets will retain his rights for 2014 – 2016 at $3 million per season. Simply showing up to all mandatory camps, OTA’s, etc, guarantee that his current deal voids after 4 years (end of 2013 season). During that 4 year period, he will have earned $46 million. Through the first 2 years of the deal, he’s been paid $32.5 million. Hard to make the case that he’s being underpaid.

  45. bigjdve says: Jun 6, 2012 11:28 AM

    bearsrulepackdrool:

    They may or may not be living it up, doesn’t really matter either way it is/was their responsibility to manage what they have/had.

    And if they are struggling after having more than most people will every get, I am not willing to start feeling sorry for them.

    Like I said, I would love to be struggling with all the money that they make. Even at the minimum it is more than most make in multiple years.

  46. theashleyguy says: Jun 6, 2012 11:31 AM

    And if at any point, the Jets ask for money for a stadium or anything else, the answer should be two words ; Shut up.

    And if you say that Revis is not the Jets, I would say that if we equate the two, then you can’t believe the pressure the owner would bring to bear on Revis to grow up.

  47. ebr362 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:31 AM

    Rex has no one to blame but his own big fat mouth. No wonder the jests are imploding, when you have a coach that encourages individuality and bravado above team concept the immature take full advantage of it. I guess the 32 mill front loaded in his contract wasn’t enough……….
    Revis Island my arse…..Ego Island is more like it.

    “He is a Corporation, however he should be smarter. A Corporation doesn’t alienate it’s client base. ”

    This is true. However he is a self-serving corporation where his business model is centered on pleasing himself…with $$$ that is.

    Look…the dude is real good and he is going to take advantage of it as long as he can.

    I think it sucks that a guy can get new contract after only two years of getting a 4 yr contract.

    I just can’t believe that the Jets are gonna keep letting him punk them though…they need to stand their ground this time around.

    He’ll probably get whatever he wants as the CB position is so important in today’s passing NFL.

    Whatever happened to guy whose signature at the bottom line meant he would honor what was above it….actually his signature is probably now in the lawsuit vs. the NFL.

  49. thraiderskin says: Jun 6, 2012 11:33 AM

    He is an amazing cornerback(the best), but quite honestly, he isn’t good enough for a team to be held hostage over. He isn’t a quarterback and as far as WINning goes, the Giants have a better secondary. I’m not saying anyone member of the Giant’s secondary is better, just that a great corner back, like Revis, does not matter when it comes to winning the big game… cut him loose and let someother stupid franchise over value his effect on a championship.

  50. flapjackdaddy says: Jun 6, 2012 11:37 AM

    That’s it Darrelle. Bit that hand that feeds you.

  51. bearsrulepackdrool says: Jun 6, 2012 11:41 AM

    Exactly, my point. Fans only care about what you can do for the team now. He should get what he can get now and not care what they think. Because once he’s gone the fans go to. They move on to whoever is hot next.

  52. bigwill90 says: Jun 6, 2012 11:41 AM

    How any fan can say that a NFL player or any professional athlete is over paid is puzzling to me. The planet earth has over 8 billion people on it, there 1696 professional football players, simply put out of 8 billion people only 1696 are qualified to do what they do. If you were 1 out of the 1696 out of 8 billion to do what you do, wouldn`t you want to maximize you financial compensation. Fans talk like they could do what these athletes do…guess what…you can`t, because if you could you would!! If you were one of the 1696 best in the world, would you want a walmart worker telling you you were overpaid…LOL!

  53. radrntn says: Jun 6, 2012 11:56 AM

    Maybe he should sit out, and sign a new 7 year deal this year, and then sit out in 2014.

  54. grogansheroes says: Jun 6, 2012 12:01 PM

    If the Jets are smart, they will do nothing. No contract offer, let him hold out. Let him sit home and watch the games on TV. Don’t contact him, just tell him until he comes in and finishes his current contract, stay home. Of course that is a big assumption, thinking the Jets are smart.

  55. rainey13 says: Jun 6, 2012 12:09 PM

    Yeah, how does that work in the real world? If you sign a contract to buy a new car, and 2 years in you decide you don’t like the terms, can you just hold out until the lender agrees to change it? No problem if BOTH sides agree to restructure. But personally, I’m sick to death of spoiled athletes doing this whiny holdout thing. You signed a contract – live up to it! And it’s about time for teams to stand firm against this kind of extortion.

  56. trubroncfan07 says: Jun 6, 2012 12:14 PM

    Is Revis going to hold out every year?

  57. FinFan68 says: Jun 6, 2012 12:26 PM

    The Jets should draft the 5-day letter now and send it the second he fails to show up for mandatory stuff.

    I didn’t like his holdout last time but at least a case could be made that he deserved more money than his rookie deal. This one is different. He knew he would hold out this year when he actually signed the contract two years ago. Circumstances haven’t changed. He hasn’t played better, nor does he “deserve” any more money than what he agreed to. He just simply wants to extort more money. He is a good CB but seems great due to a lack of penalties called for his play. If the refs start calling some of the obvious stuff he does, his value drops to that of an average #1 CB on a team.

    I hope the Jets (and teams in similar situations) hold their ground, force the daily fines and DO NOT WAIVE them if/when a contract is finally agreed upon. Maybe if the players actually have consequences for hold-outs, then they might think twice about doing it. Some players deserve more money based on their play…Revis is not among them because he is/has already been payed what he is worth. (actually he has been paid more than he is worth)

  58. steelerdynasty2010 says: Jun 6, 2012 12:28 PM

    i just cant wait to see what injury he pulls out of his pocket when Randy Moss runs past him again for another 1 handed TD grab….

    stop drinking your own kool-aid darrelle, it must be hot since you have no SB ice to put in it…

  59. realdealsteel says: Jun 6, 2012 12:29 PM

    Darrell Revis is an absolute idiot. Everytime another cornerback gets a new contract, he feels that he needs a new contract to be higher paid. He is out of his mind. And I’m glad he’s on the Jets causing all these problems because the annual circus the Jets give us is fine entertainment.

    So this coming season, Revis will play a prominent role in their collaspe. Love it. Can’t wait!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Way to prop up your argument with bloated and unrelated stats. You assume that EVERY person on the planet desires nothing more than to play in the NFL and only the current batch of NFL players have the talent to do so. The current players are not “the best in the world” they are simply (arguably) the best players of the ones that have tried and gotten an opportunity in the NFL.

  61. jetsjetsjetsjets says: Jun 6, 2012 12:35 PM

    It was clear when he held out last time that they would renegotiate after two years (was in the news then).

    Not sure why Tannenbaum continues to say one thing and do another. Makes him look very untrustworthy.

    He is due to make $3 M this year. Give him a raise.

  62. ampats says: Jun 6, 2012 12:45 PM

    The issue is that Mevis never intended to honor his contract.46 M for 4 years= 10.15Mper.

    Mevis believes that he should be paid 16M per season. I fully expect him to hold out and Woody Johnson will fold as Tannenbaum will be a befuddled as he was two years ago as shown on Hard Knocks.

    Anyone really think the team chemistry is going to be better than LY?

    For all of the pro-Revis folks on here:

    can you honestly imagine an NFL where every player who FEELS they outperformed they contract every year holds out? It’s absolutely ludicrous. If Revis wants to whine and pout, I suggest the Jets void his current contract in lieu of a new one year deal. Let him continue to play year for year on an incentive based contract since he feels thats how he should be paid, and the season he gets hurt? Just throw you’re hand up and say “oh well!” Then let him see how free agency treats a me-first arrogant punk.

    PS- I hate the Jets and I still don’t want to see Revis hold the entire team hostage.

    Dumbest statement of the day. Nice to see you are including EVERY country in this, because everyone knows its every Brazlian person’s dream to play in the NFL. Also, good job taking in account the fact that there are men and women on this planet….

  67. themars211 says: Jun 6, 2012 1:27 PM

    Why do you guys always put the onus on the players to honor a contract and never do the same for the team? Last I checked if he didn’t perform up to standard he would have to take a pay cut or get cut all together. Its a two way street. The clubs do it all the time and I don’t hear you guys screaming and moaning about honoring contracts. Revis get your money and to hell with idiot haters!!

    Stevie Johnson hopes you don’t hold out.

    I kind of think Mevis is trying to get out of New York and I really can’t blame him with the circus the coach and GM has created.

  70. jhtobias says: Jun 6, 2012 1:54 PM

    Why all the hate towards the man. How is he any different than any other individual in life. If Mr. Revis feels he should get paid more and is being undervalued than that is between him and the Jets. The Jets ultimatley cut his checks, so they will either give him the money he wants or say play under your current contract because your not getting a cent more. This is simple Economics.

    The only question that I have for Mr. Revis is that if you feel that your in your prime in a earnings sense, then do a one year contract at a time so your valuse can be redetermined every year.

    The jets are under no obligation to pay one more cent to this man, and is Mr. Revis under no obligation to play under his current contract. If he wants to make a paycheck than he really has no leg to stand on since he signed his current deal.

    Guy can play, but his STYLE of play is to grab and hold and hope refs don’t call it. Remember Mike Irvin until Madden told the world how he got open. If refs start calling some of that stuff, he becomes more average.

    I hope Woody pulls a “Mike Brown” all over Revis’ arse just like how it went down with Carson Palmer.

    Let the Jets worry about that stuff, it’s up to them if they want their best players constantly looking for new contracts once they’ve pocketed all the bonus money. Guess what? Whether he gets more money or not it’s highly unlikely the Jets are in the Super Bowl. Look at the odds.

    umm, the fans are the consumers. The players work for the ‘coorporation’.

    PS, until the NFL makes contracts guaranteed to the players, the players will never ‘fulfill’ their end. People who are saying he’s terrible b/c he just signed a contract are wrong. How can you ‘honor’ the contract you are on if the team can cut you, and not pay you the majority of that money, at any time? I’m not saying the player always deserves the money they want (Gholston, most RBs, etc), but I will never fault a man who knows he has a short window of opportunity to try to earn the most he can. A contract should be binding on the player and the team, until that happens, no one will ever honor their entire contract.

    Waited on this guy twice in college, near his hometown of aliquippa, at an almost famous pittsburgh establishment. twice over a $50 tab, twice no tip. I knew it was DR each time gave him the same respectful service as any customer deserved. He’s just a purely that much of a jerk.

  76. wherezwaldo says: Jun 6, 2012 3:01 PM

    Hes done nothing to deserve a extension/new contract. He was the hot commodity then, and now hes just another name on the jersey. I recall old bum a$$ Randy Moss on his way out of New England catching a 1 handed TD on Revis, and he hid behind a hamstring injury. The only thing injured was homeboys ego. Also the last thing Revis I heard anywhere was a pick 6 vs the Dolphins and that was considered suspect. He doesnt care about the fans? As I said hes just another name on the jersey, dont think you cant be easily forgotten. On that note, J-E-S-T!! Jest, Jest, Jest.

    Classless act

    I have no problem with players trying to get the most value in their short careers. HOWEVER, if players are willing to sign the long contract 4 years plus, then they can’t complain about the terms. If their ego demands they be among the highest paid at their position, then they should be signing only 2 year contracts to reassess market conditions.

    It’s completely absurd Revis to start bitching about being underpaid only two years after signing the then highest paid contract for CBs. It’s his right to holdout, but he is certainly not winning any sympathy from normal and rationale-thinking fans who rightly think he’s out of his greedy mind.

  79. nyjalleffingday says: Jun 6, 2012 4:21 PM

    If he holds out again, the Jets have the leverage this time, he can hold out all he wants but then the Jets own him throughout his prime and can just make him benchwarm for years. Honestly though, trade this guy if he tries to pull this again. Cancerous attitude.

    Don’t even bother playing in The NFL then.. It’s always about and for the fans… Revis is a lop

  81. backindasaddle says: Jun 6, 2012 9:10 PM

    The Jets ought to ram the terms of existing contract right down his throat with a toilet plunger.

  82. 7to10for6allday says: Jun 6, 2012 10:12 PM

    Dude, you’re not as good as you once were. Just this past season teams were torching the jets D….Stevie Johnson and desean Jackson to name a few. Get over your self. Jets aren’t doing much this year, pats and buffalo will be better. So go right ahead and sit out again, moron!

  83. jfinn5 says: Jun 7, 2012 1:51 AM

    Stand your ground. The career is short and you have to do what’s best for you and your family.

  84. gingerkid2000 says: Jun 7, 2012 4:27 AM

    Look for Darrelle in the new tv series Lost 2 – Revis Island (This time he should just stay there because the prima donna bs is getting old fast)

  85. 2ndaryinsanity says: Jun 7, 2012 8:30 AM

    Revis = SELFISH and GREEDY. What’s the point of him signing a contract when he decides 2 years into the deal that he wants more money? If he didn’t like the way his deal was structured, he shouldn’t have signed it. Period.

  86. bigwill90 says: Jun 8, 2012 9:15 AM

    Which of my numbers are inflated FinFan68? There are conservatively 8 billion people on earth and there are 32 teams with 53 man rosters which comes out to 1696…but I digress… my point was when fans cry and whine and complain that these athletes are over paid, what they don`t recognize is that the market sets the value. If there are only 1696 people that do what you do, you can command top dollar. People like to say that they should try to flip burgers for a living, well if flipping burgers is your max skill set then don`t hate on those that have a skill set that puts them in the top 1696 of their field.

    Woody and the Jets management are weak. They should of put this prima donna in his place after the first holdout. Now theyve enabled a spoiled brat monster whose only more embolden now after he got his way the first time.
