Woody Johnson gives Revis another million

revis-woody Getty Images

Jets owner Woody Johnson may not want to pay cornerback Darrelle Revis later, but Johnson is definitely paying Revis now.

As pointed out by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, today is the day on which Revis earns a roster bonus of $1 million.

Revis also is due to receive a reporting bonus of $1 million, a workout bonus of $1 million, and a base salary of $3 million.

Of course, it won’t matter if he’s traded, since he’ll get a new contract.  Unless the Jets eventually decide to trade him without his new team signing him to a new deal — which will mean that someone could get him for one year, $5 million.

Which pretty much falls in line with the current free-agent cornerback market.

While no one believed that the Jets would have cut Revis in lieu of paying the money, the decision to fork over $1 million with a trade offer from Tampa on the table suggests that the Jets don’t think much of the proposed deal.

    Hopefully Idzik is saying if you want Revis, you get Tebow too.

    Woody is a buffoon. He’s definitely no Robert Kraft.

    All Hail The Genius.

    Go Pats

    As a Eagles fan, I will take Tebow if its the only way to get Revis. Give you Foles in return.

  6. 1bucfan says: Mar 16, 2013 4:01 PM

    Wish the Bucs would go ahead and make the deal for the man…

  7. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 16, 2013 4:01 PM

    Woody Johnson. Tehe.tehehe

    Yes free those two from this joke of a franchize. Maybe Joe Namath can come back and play for you.

  9. johnnyballgame7 says: Mar 16, 2013 4:04 PM

    Another good CB to the Eagles? That like a pitcher going to the Rockies.

  10. elmaxoh says: Mar 16, 2013 4:05 PM

    Revis to the Buccs.

  12. skarfacci says: Mar 16, 2013 4:08 PM

    Why are they paying this idiot? They have no spine. That’s why they suck everywhere. He’s a diva. Let him walk.

  13. eaglesfan290 says: Mar 16, 2013 4:10 PM

    Do the Jets really think they will get anything for Revis without him signing a new deal with that new team?

    I mean sorry Woddy but no one would give you a couple high draft picks for a one year Revis deal!

  14. rg3andthensome says: Mar 16, 2013 4:13 PM

    Revis,

    You really are the reason so many people hate professional athletes.

    Fans.

  15. dynaco says: Mar 16, 2013 4:15 PM

    Looks like Manhattan and Revis island are staying put.

    Bill Belichick is STILL a Genius. Don’t let your jealousy get the best of you. He has successfully turned his roster over to one of the youngest in the NFL, while still remaining competitive year in year out. Check out the facts and look at his record, it speaks for itself. Evey other team in the NFL aspires to be the NE Patriots and Bill Belichick. Fact, not opinion.

    All Hail The Genius.

    Go Pats.

  20. nflsucker says: Mar 16, 2013 4:21 PM

    I can’t imagine any team being dumb enough to go the one year Rent-a-Revis route, other than, duh, the Jets.

  21. nomoreseasontix says: Mar 16, 2013 4:24 PM

    All this drama over a cornerback. And he wants to be paid like he’s not a cornerback.
    The NFL is out of whack.

  22. shlort says: Mar 16, 2013 4:26 PM

    The Jets are holding Revis for some draft day goodies. Someone is going into the draft needing a number one CB and will not get one in the 1st round. They might be willing to trade better picks for Revis. Woody ain’t as dumb as we all think he is. I’d take that back now that I am thinking Rex, but Woody is smart with his cash. He didn’t get rich making bad decisions when it comes to finances.

    LMFAO

    Yeah, the pats are missing their 2013 5th round pick because of the Haynesworth trade and their 6th rounder because of ochocinco!!

    Some genius.

    The pats worked brady over and then couldn’t chip off Welker $2mil more to stick around.

    Silly chowds.

  24. playbookofeli says: Mar 16, 2013 4:27 PM

    It’s a roster bonus asshat. It’s part of his contract. It means nothing and he could still be traded tomorrow

  25. j0esixpack says: Mar 16, 2013 4:35 PM

    Dude gets an extra million for tearing his ACL.

    Revis has Woody and Wrecks wrapped around his finger.

    The genius who hasn’t won a SB with the “best” record in the league for the past 8 seasons. :-)

  27. northstarnic says: Mar 16, 2013 4:40 PM

    A million for showing up to work (reporting), and a million for being ready to work (workout). Sounds like an employee that can be counted on to do his part. Must be rough.

  28. grogansheroes says: Mar 16, 2013 4:41 PM

    Boy, I wish I could miss 70% of my work year, and my boss would give me an additional million dollars, on top of the already several millions he has given me.

  29. billbelichickisagenius says: Mar 16, 2013 4:42 PM

    Mullman:

    That’s a narrow perspective. He took low risks with those picks because he had a surplus of draft picks because of his genius moves trading down and trading players away before they decline. If I remember correctly, they made it to the SB that year and almost won and they will be competing for SBs the next five years.

    Hate all you want. Success breeds envy.

    All Hail The Genius.

    Go Pats.

  30. thestrategyexpert says: Mar 16, 2013 4:48 PM

    Well Revis gets the money and puts it in his pocket. If he works out a deal with TB then they will absorb the value of that payment. Revis could have been traded before the payment and hit the Bucs up for ‘x’ amount, so now the Bucs will subtract 1 million from their ‘x’ in the next round of negotiations. Revis will in effect get the same amount so his end will remain unchanged, and only the new money needs to be negotiated but that would happen in either event. The dealings between the 2 teams will now have the Jets in a position to recapture that 1 million in leverage towards building up the right trade package.

    Net effect is that this payment is of no real impact at all. Any angle to try and operate from to act like you’ve won an extra million in value on the deal would be nothing more than a smokescreen with a built-in gimme factor that was guaranteed known information relating to the player’s contractual position.

  31. northstarnic says: Mar 16, 2013 4:49 PM

    Woody Johnson? Seriously?

  32. pisano says: Mar 16, 2013 4:54 PM

    What’s 1mil, when he threw 8.25mil out the window on Sanchez. Sounds to me like a good deal in comparison when you figure Revis will stop people from scoring on the Jets, but on the other hand Sanchez will keep the Jets from scoring, so go figure.

  33. hawkforlife says: Mar 16, 2013 5:03 PM

    By the time Woody figures out how to use the FAX machine Revis will be a free agent.

  34. dlk47823 says: Mar 16, 2013 5:15 PM

    Its true that the Pats finally caught up to the Clowns- 2 Championship trips in 4 years. The only difference is the Jets won on the road- something the Pats just can’t do.

    Um, ever heard of Johnson and Johnson (baby shampoo, etc)? Well, he’s an heir to someone else’s hard work. Woody has never earned a thing in his lifetime. Make no mistake, his inheritance belongs to him, no doubt, but saying Woody is intelligent is unfounded.

    Just cuz BB has a good record doesnt make him a genius… he was never a genius.. he was a cheater… and since the caught him he hasnt won the SB

    If you don’t believe me ask the 49ers, ravens and giants they will tell you.
    Thou genius really peaked when he couldn’t stop dirty Sanchez and Wayne Hunter in 2010. Now that’s disgraceful, surprised he even kept his job after that home debacle.

    I bow to your intelligence. After Revis tore his ACL, Woody added a million dollars to his contract to be paid on 3/16/13 no matter what.

    Your break is over, more cars to be washed.

  41. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Mar 16, 2013 6:00 PM

    OMG! What a bunch of tiring snortle. If you guys felt good about your playoff results since spygate then why would you need to spend your days on such vapid hate drivel?
    Bottom line The legacy of Belichick is forever tarnished. Deal with it. Its good to acknowledge these things in order to recover & live on. This league is so competitive those events have proven that having that extra ill gotten information made all the difference in winning those titles.

    As for Revis your elementary comments about the negotiation process give your ignorance away about your level of understanding of where the leverage is in this situation. Let me school you as follows…
    1. Jets don’t need to be in any rush to trade Revis. This 1 Million & other 5 Million as others pointed out means nothing in the bigger scheme of things & will be recouped if he’s traded.
    2. Our first opportunity will be to trade him up until the draft when any number of deals could be made. Of course teams would have to do this on the basis of trust that he’ll fully recover from his injury. We’d probably get 75% of his pre-injury value here.
    3. Our second opportunity is to keep him into summer until he’s made his way back on the field and is in practice & pre-season games showing his physical capabilities again where teams would gain more confidence about making a deal for him. This is arguably the better play.
    4. We’ll only start loosing leverage once the season starts a couple games in & ultimately could sign him ourselves at this point if we haven’t already.
    5. An unknown factor in all this is how much Revis is willing to bet on himself & his recovery vs giving himself some insurance by making a reasonable deal now. Does he want to go all in? We’ll see. I doubt it but the current FA low cornerback market values could bring him to his senses & Jets could do a deal with him.

    We are still early in the game here with Revis so wipe the adolesent snot off your grimey faces & settle down while the adults get the deal done.

    Thats all. You are excused now.

  42. flavordave says: Mar 16, 2013 6:11 PM

    Give him all the millions that you want. I just dont see how this stops Chip Kellys 11 headed offensive monster show. It shocking to know whats coming and not be prepared. And theres simply nothing anyone can do about it.

    You are wrong, way wrong. When is the last time that Belichick won the Superbowl? Having a young team and a good record without winning the Championship is pointless. Ever since Spygate, Brady and Belichick have been ringless.

  44. gizzmonic says: Mar 16, 2013 7:03 PM

    For all the holdouts and threats, I want to see Revis suffer through each and every day of his contract right there in “Giants” stadium. He and Rex deserve no reprives. They made plenty of noise when the times were better. Now deal with the losses week in and week out. Sports center will be fun to watch.

    Where is the proof Tampa even made an offer? It is entirely possible Mark Dominick called to inquire and nothing more.

    These media types blow everything out of proportion.

  48. 69finfan says: Mar 16, 2013 7:56 PM

    Oh, Revis he thinks he’s really keen. He’s got electric boots, a mohair suit, you know I read it in the latrine. R -R-R-Revis and the Jets!

  49. amaf21 says: Mar 16, 2013 8:26 PM

    And this why owners need to stay out of personnel decisions. Even the little general seems to have learned his lesson. This halfwit is even making people forget about GM Jones in Dallas.

  50. billbelichickisagenuis says: Mar 16, 2013 10:09 PM

    You hate because you can’t replicate. Bill Belichick is an innovator, always ahead of the curve. It’s a copy cat league because every other team is trying to emulate the Patriots organization because they are run flawlessly.

    All Hail The Genius.

    Go Pats.

  52. jayquintana says: Mar 16, 2013 10:42 PM

    Looks like everyone called Woody’s bluff when he said he had “great offer” on the table for Revis. If he did, he’d have traded him before shelling out the mil.

    Let me take a wild guess, Johnson inherited his money.

  53. amjsm24601 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:50 PM

    As a Bucs fan, please keep him out of Tampa. He is the last headache we need here. We need a guy who can play on the field, not cry like a little girl, play when he wants and drown his sorrows in the bosom of one of the girls at the Mons.

    I don’t know if Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan still read my comments but if they do Trade Kirk Cousins to the jets for Revis right now. hell give them a third round pick to boot. Revis plays for free this year and if he plays nice then pay him in 14 when we have the space. I am willing to risk Rex as a back up qb if it means stopping a few deep passes.

  58. jdk5477 says: Mar 17, 2013 2:25 AM

    Means more than 31 other teams that haven’t! Have you guys ever played anything? People-coaches at any level are Always trying to get an edge steal a sign whatever it may be… I’ve seen it in kids games! Hate all you want….. BB is the best coach EVER!

    I realize this week your fan base has declared the Miami Dolphins Super Bowl champs, but before you cheer, hail to your owner again for paying Mike Wallace with a $30 mill guarantee when Jennings got $18 mill guaranteed.
    I’m sure if the Steelers front office could read minds, they would have gladly driven Wallace to the airport.

    Pray for no Dolphin home blackouts this season.
