Report: New York Jets, CB Darrelle Revis Reach Agreement

According to ESPN’s Adam Shefter, the Jets and CB Darrelle Revis have finally found the middle ground and come to an agreement in principle on a contract.

Filed to ESPN: Jets and CB Darrelle Revis reach agreement in principle. Revis will fly to NY, sign contract and be on field next Monday nt.

Darrelle Revis is scheduled to be at the Jets training facility tomorrow to sign the deal. Numbers likely to be a team, but not NFL record.

This news came after word had trickled out about a meeting between Ryan and Revis in South Florida this weekend. It remains to be seen if Revis got the contract he wanted, which would make him the highest-paid CB in the league.

Keep an eye on Gang Green Nation for updates and opinion on the agreement.


Report: Revis Contract Demand Is $162M Over Ten Years

If you’ve been wondering what’s holding up the contract demands between CB Derrelle Revis and the Jets, perhaps New York just finds it hard to sign on the dotted line when they’ll be reportedly committing $162M to Revis, according to Newsday Bob Glauber.

Tim Cowlishaw is standing by his earlier report that Revis will sign later this week, though Glauber insists the two parties are $40M apart.

As we get closer to finding out, keep an eye on SB Nation New York.


Report: Jets, Darrelle Revis Reach Deal To Be Announced Later This Week

Jets fans may have reason to breathe easier, as superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis' holdout may finally be coming to an end. Here's what ESPN personality and Dallas Morning News writer Tim Cowlishaw posted on Twitter recently:

Revis and Jets announce new deal, probably Wednesday. You heard it here first. "Inside information!"less than a minute ago via web


While the Jets' secondary has been better than average during the preseason--with Antonio Cromartie playing a big role as the new number one corner--it's clear that they're not as good as they could be, especially compared to a secondary with Revis on the field.

Gang Green Nation correctly expresses some confusion as to how Tim Cowlishaw, of all people, would come up with this information, but if it's true, there's nothing stopping the Jets from having the best defense in the NFL this season.


Darrelle Revis Will Hold Out Of Jets Training Camp

Despite overtures during the last few weeks that he would report, Darrelle Revis is currently holding out from Jets’ camp. According to his agent, Neil Schwartz, Revis won’t appear until he receives a new contract.

As for how long the holdout will last, Gang Green Nation thinks they have the answer:

Although Revis’ agent, Neil Schwartz informed the media in very glib fashion they should ask the Jets how long it will last, he is facing a $16,000 per day fine. He also would delay his own unrestricted free agency if he does not report in the next 10 days. Doing that would take leverage away. When players hold out, it is intended to have the opposite effect. There are cases where players dig in and force a trade like Deion Branch with the Patriots in 2006, but those are the exception. I can’t imagine the Jets would move a piece as integral as Revis.

Revis is set to currently make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, which would make him one of the lowest-paid defensive backs on the roster. He wants to be the highest-paid one, which means he’s looking for something better than Nnamdi Asomugha’s three-year, $45.3 million deal.
