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 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.
