Report: Revis will not hold out


Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has still not declared publicly whether he’ll report to training camp on time. But he has apparently told people close to him privately that he will not hold out.

The Associated Press, reports that Revis has decided to attend camp, according to a person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been made public.

The source speaking anonymously, and Revis’s refusal to make his decision public, is odd: If Revis is going to show up to training camp, as his contract requires, why doesn’t he just say so and get the whole thing over with? Maybe Revis enjoys all the attention and wants to milk the drama for a few more days.

Revis held out of training camp two years ago until the Jets gave him a new four-year contract. That new contract paid him $32.5 million in its first two seasons, but he’s due “only” $13.5 million over the next two seasons, and Revis has said he expected when he signed the deal that the Jets would give him a raise if he kept playing well.

That expectation has not yet been met, but Revis is apparently willing to report to training camp anyway, and he’ll be there on Thursday.

  1. Clearly he does not care about winning. He wants the money. Last time he had the spin around the hold out carousel he got injuried in the first game. Looked lazy for 1/2 the season until he could get healthy again. Train hard and work for your money. Revis island is about as real as a leprechaun riding a unicorn.

  2. I’m glad to hears this. I hope that this gesture prompts the Jets to have open discussions about a long term deal without the drama

  3. Hateful commenters like hootiehoot are such losers, they should be ignored, but I won’t this time.

    Lapband surgery is cheating? Please. That man lost over 100 pounds and likely extended his life by many years. That’s more quality time with his wife, children and grandchildren. That some miserable troll living in their parents basement ever begrudge anyone for extending their life is beyond me.

    Get a life or find some happiness Hootiehoot

    Revis needs to give the Jets a Stevie Johnson discount, because he can’t cover him.

    ENOUGH. Over a span of six career games against the Jets, Johnson has 22 catches for 283 yards and 3 touchdowns. Those numbers average out to 3.7 receptions for 37 yards and .5 Touchdowns per game.

    THAT’S NOT GOOD. Enough of the Stevie Johnson hype, he caught one long ball on Revis last year, and not even the most important one. In fact, can we stop hyping up the Bills in general, please?
