Darrelle Revis May Be The Only Jet Getting A Contract Extension

Darrelle Revis and the Jets are talking contract and, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, things aren't exactly going smoothly.

From all indications, the Darrelle Revis dispute will last well into the summer, perhaps all the way up to the regular-season opener. Both sides seem entrenched in their positions. Revis is adamant about being the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL (can you blame him?), meaning he wants to be paid at least as much as Nnamdi Asomugha (in the $16 million-a-year neighborhood). Ordinarily, the Jets wouldn’t have a problem with making Revis No. 1 in salary at his position, but they regard the Asomugha deal as an aberration, one of many wacko deals executed by Al Davis.

It also doesn't help that Rex Ryan has repeatedly called Revis the best cornerback in the NFL. From Revis' perspective, why shouldn't he be paid like it, aberration or not?

Meanwhile, Cimini writes that Revis' deal -- assuming it gets done this summer -- would be the only the Jets are focusing on at this point. That means Nick Mangold, David Harris and D'Brickashaw Ferguson will wait.

Those players plus Antonio Cromartie, Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards heading into the last year of their contract will make the 2011 offseason nearly impossible for the Jets. Cimini predicts you can say goodbye to at least two of those players.
