The Jets can officially stop worrying about a second Darrelle Revis holdout in three years.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Revis joined his Jets teammates at their New Jersey headquarters for physicals and conditioning tests on Thursday morning. Recent reports indicated that would be Revis’ ultimate decision, but the final exhalation had to wait until the most important player on the Jets defense actually walked through the doors on time.

Revis’ arrival won’t be the last we hear about his contract situation. Revis is set to make $13.5 million over the next two years, a number he feels is too low and the Jets have a big reason to talk about a new deal as well. They can’t franchise Revis after the 2013 season, which means that they would potentially have to compete with other teams for Revis’ services.

As we mentioned above, Revis is the most important player on the team’s defense so they aren’t likely to risk losing him unless something goes drastically wrong for Revis in the next few months. By reporting, Revis should be taking acrimony out of any conversations on the contract front and that could help pave the way for the resolution he’s been seeking all along.

  1. good, now we don’t have to read the “will he or won’t he show” garbage anymore. Now if only the media would stop fawning over Teblow…

  2. Good showing Revis! This is what players should do – show up….owners are more willing to work with you if you show up like this.

    I fully believe that because of this, Revis will get the contract he seeks from the Jets. JET FOR LIFE

  3. Wheres ampats and others now with the daily guarantees of how Revis is definitely holding out again this season as it was fact. Just like Rex made a fool out of himself with his super bowl guarantees and vowed to change, you should do the same. Every story about a holdout all spring/summer got 4000 comments each article and now that he showed up, you get 3 comments.

  4. Revis lost the PR big time in this ridiculous contract squabble. The idiocy of his “logic” is mind-boggling.

    He was paid most of the money upfront in the first couple years, yet he wants the remaining years to be paid at the same level and considers the “low numbers” to be a pay cut. Most fans were smart enough to realize what a fool Revis was and let him and his agent know this.

  5. Just because he’s showing up, doesn’t mean he’s not going to be a problem. This will end in a trade or new contract. If neither of these things happen you’ll have your defensive version of Santonio Holmes all season.

  6. Dont give it away Darrelle!!! Your worth so much more. Dont take a chance on injury. Earn ALL that you can , when you can. Play hardball while you still hold all the card, you know how you will be treated when they have YOU over a barrel.
    I hope you show them by holding out the next 4 to 7 years.
