Jets still haven’t contacted Revis camp

The Jets have an offer on the table from the Buccaneers for cornerback Darrelle Revis.  The deal includes potential terms of compensation for Revis.

The Jets apparently aren’t impressed.  Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Jets have still not communicated any potential offers to the Revis camp.

The Jets declined comment, reiterating their overall position regarding Revis.

If the Jets drag their feet, the Bucs could turn to Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes, or to another option at corner.

It could be that the Jets know Revis won’t be impressed by the offer.  Though the Jets and Revis haven’t negotiated, it’s generally accepted that he’s looking for a deal in the range of $15 million to $16 million per year.

At some point, the Jets may have to decide whether they’re willing to trade Revis without an extension.  If no one will give Revis what he wants, it could be the only way to remove what is becoming an increasingly significant distraction.

    “Jets still haven’t contacted Revis camp” and Revis has contacted anything since his injury. 16M what a joke.

    This sounds like establishing a market price, which sounds a lot like a negotiation. This is what the market will pay or you can play for 6 million this year. Sounds like the Jets made their offer and it’s only a matter of time before Revis accepts it or a team makes a good enough offer for him.

    Apparently you don’t even read your own site.

    25 minutes ago you posted the story that the Falcons re-signed Grimes via Michael David Smith.

    Hard to do business with a player like Revis because no matter what someone might be willing to pay him it won’t be enough. Has there ever been a period of time where Revis was just content playing ball without the lingering topic of his compensation.

    Who would be stupid enough to pay a corner coming off a torn ACL like he’s a quarterback. A good quarterback too.

    awwww is revis upset he is in the dark? When he was holding the Jets hostage and didn’t report to camp twice that was ok though right? What comes around goes around. I hope the jets just keep stringing him along.

    Brent Grimes re-signed.

    Grimes re-signed in Atl. Next option

    Like I said…it’s the Jets. They are going to screw this up somehow.

    The Bucs will move on, and Jets are stuck with a ticked off Revis who will bail for the Patriots next year. And the Jets get nothing to show for it.

    Ummm, you just posted a story stating Grimes re-signed with the Falcons.

  13. hosmachine says: Mar 12, 2013 8:53 PM

    God I’m sick of flavordave and his comments about the eagles and chip kelly being superior. What a joke Maybe you should worry about getting a Qb that can make plays before thinking about “were stacked at the wr position” ahaha I remember the dream team a few years ago Yup stacked at every position. How did that work out for you? BTW Dennis Dixon isn’t the answer thats more laughalbe than anything that come out of richard shermans mouth!!!

    Sorry Revis, you’re great but that is too much money for a cb.

  15. jckid21 says: Mar 12, 2013 9:50 PM

    Jets have Revis by the balls here. Revis clearly wants to get paid an avoid playing next year without a big money contract. If he is not traded Revis risks playing 16 games next year at a bargain price with the chance of injury or a decline in performance right around the corner. Yes if the Jets don’t trade him he could walk for nothing, but at the end of the day Revis would still have to play lights out to get his mega deal. Which again is a win for the Jets in the short term on the field. I would like to see him get traded, but a part of me would love to see him risk injury or a slip in performance to see his big pay day go up in smoke.

    Last time I checked REvis was under contract, so he should shut up for once and just honor his contract. He must be dying that he can’t hold out because the last three years of his deal kick in at lousy money. This prima donna thinks he’s getting 16 mill from anyone? Gimme a break. As for the clowns like footballfan292 who obviously don’t pay much attention to facts, you think the Pats are giving him 16 mill? Have you met Bellicheck? Get a clue. The Jets have been one of the more successful franchises in the sports since 1997. Once again check the facts you mental midget and you’ll see only 4 losing seasons in 15 years.

    And the wheels on the bus go round and round…..

    Grimes has not re signed with atl it was an inaccurate report, he is still out there!

    $15-16m is more than the entire backfield for the Seahawks, which people say is the best in the NFL. How does it make sense to pay 1 person that much money?

    QB’s are one thing since they handle the ball every single offensive down. DB’s need to be part of a unit.

    That is exactly why SF is not in the Revis hunt. Waaaayyyyy too much money!!!

    To much money for a CB comming off a non-contact ACL injury. If it was a contact ACL and not catastrophic would be more comfortable. Any non-contact ACL to a player of Revis’s calibur to means to me that the player pushed his body past the physical limits that the ACL they were born with couldn’t withstand.

    I mean I think Barry Sander’s knees should be donted to science for study. The stresses his playstyle put on his ACLs and not to have them blowout from the quick stop-starts-cuts-change of direction which is almost always how non-contact sport ACL injuries happen is unnatural. If Einstein’s brain was a knee, it be Sanders…

    I just can’t see how a player can be the same player if being that player is what caused them to blowout their knee. I’m not saying Revis won’t be a good cornerback, but to me he simply can’t be the SAME CB becuase it was playing like that CB is what blew his knee out.

    It would be interesting to get a list of all CB’s in the last 10-15 years who were considered Elite (maybe just GOOD as if they were ELITE I could probobly name one of top of my head) and blew out their ACL’s from non-contact and see how there career played out after that. That would be an interesting thing to see, and is what I would consider before even thinking of playing Revis the money he is asking.

    you think revis will look for 15 or 16 mil now, and then sign with the pats? noone is going to pay him that kind of money, least of all the pats. it’s very early but so far i like idzik just fine. patience
