Darrelle Revis Skipping Jets OTAs On Thursday Was 'No Coincidence'

Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com brings up an interesting point regarding Darrelle Revis' decision to skip the Jets OTAs on Thursday. According to Cimini, Revis' Thursday absence was "no coincidence".

Thursday's boycott was orchestrated. It came on a day in which HBO was at the facility, filming promos for the upcoming "Hard Knocks" series. Also, it was a media day, the one day a week in which we're allowed to watch and report from practice. That Revis skipped Thursday was no coincidence.

Cimini makes a good point. It was known that Revis and the Jets were working on a deal and there were reports on Thursday morning that the "feeling in the lockerroom" was that a deal would get done. By Thursday afternoon, those reports turned into Revis being "furious" and "insulted" with the Jets first contract offer.

For Revis, it's probably a good PR move. Rex Ryan has said Revis is the best corner in the league. GM Mike Tannenbaum has conceded that he probably deserves a new contract.

With fans feeling the same way, the Jets brass now has some public pressure to get a deal done.

SB Nation's Gang Green Nation "hopes" a deal will get done.

I certainly didn't like this news, but I was relieved that he was absent by choice and not due to injury.  The NFL is a business, and this is the side of football I don't like.  I hope they'll be able to work this out.
