Bob Glauber of Newsday reports the Jets are indeed willing to give Darrelle Revis the largest contract ever given to a defensive back suggesting they're willing to go as high as $100 million.
Revis has three years and about $21 million remaining on his current contract but is set to make just $1 million in 2010.
Per Glauber, the Jets just don't want to pay him "Asomugha money" -- the deal the Raiders cornerback got which averages $16.2 million per year.
What the Jets appear ready to do instead is add six years to the existing deal, a total package that, when added to the remaining $21 million Revis is owed would approach $100 million or more. That deal, which would average around $12 million per season, would keep Revis with the Jets until he is 33.
For now, they don't appear to be close on getting a deal done. Revis has publicly stated his desire to have a deal that is above Asomugha's $16.2 million per year.
