Darrelle Revis More Interested In Guaranteed Money Than $100 Million Contract

On Thursday, a report emerged that the Jets would be willing to give Darrelle Revis a contract worth up to $100 million. The report mentioned nothing about guaranteed money, which is what really matters in the NFL.

Apparently, Revis doesn't impressed by a $100 million proposal.

But Revis laughed off that report to friends, pointing out that NFL contracts are not guaranteed and that the only thing that matters -- at least in pro football negotiations -- is money paid up front in the form of bonuses and other guarantees.

That's because non-guaranteed contracts are essentially useless in the NFL.

The NY Post goes on to report that Revis feels the Jets leaked the information about the $100 million contract. Apparently, it was done to curry some favor from the fans, who have been chanting "Please pay Revis!" at practices recently.

People close to Revis said he considers the Jets to be the source of that leaked report and that he feels it was yet another attempt by the team to make itself look good while making Revis appear greedy.

The Jets denied leaking the information, releasing a statement last night that said, "Throughout these negotiations, we have expressed our appreciation and respect for Darrelle as a player and a person, as well as our commitment to finding a resolution that works for both sides."

This can't be too good for future negotiations.
