Last week, Jets coach Rex Ryan popped in on cornerback Darrelle Revis at his New Jersey-area residence. Revis wasn’t there.
The head coach successfully tracked his star defender down in Florida over the weekend, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Mehta says that Ryan and Revis discussed the contractual stalemate between player and team.
It’s unknown whether either of Revis’ agents were present for the meeting, or whether they knew about or authorized a meeting to occur outside their presence.
We’ve previously wondered whether Ryan has tried or would try to use some of his considerable political capital to persuade the Jets to give Revis what he wants. If Ryan isn’t merely trying to get Revis to cave, it could be that Ryan is trying to find out exactly what Revis would be willing to take in the hopes of then trying to get the team to give it to him.
