Jets CB Darrelle Revis Protests Contract By Sitting Out Some Plays At Minicamp

Jets CB Darrelle Revis sat out some plays toward the end of Jets minicamp this morning. According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, he "delivered a form of protest" by sitting out a few plays.

Newsday's Bob Glauber reports Revis says he sat out because he was "light-headed" though it seems none of the Jets beat writers are buying that.

Revis later admitted that he was sitting out as a form of protest.

 "I talked to (secondary coach) Dennis Thurman about it too. We joked about it. He knows where I stand and what I beleive in.... I can't control what the Raiders paid Nnamdi Asomugha. But he set the bar.... I don't have to be paid that much, but me and my team are going to fight for that."

Revis wants to be paid on the same level as the Raiders' Asomugha, who is scheduled to make approximately $16 million this year.

Revis is scheduled to make $1 million in base salary in 2010 and has repeatedly stated his desire for a new deal. He says today that negotiations are not going well and has previously called the Jets first offer an "insult."

It's a good move for Revis. He attended the mandatory camp so he couldn't be fined but still got his point across.
