Despite overtures during the last few weeks that he would report, Darrelle Revis is currently holding out from Jets’ camp. According to his agent, Neil Schwartz, Revis won’t appear until he receives a new contract.
As for how long the holdout will last, Gang Green Nation thinks they have the answer:
Although Revis’ agent, Neil Schwartz informed the media in very glib fashion they should ask the Jets how long it will last, he is facing a $16,000 per day fine. He also would delay his own unrestricted free agency if he does not report in the next 10 days. Doing that would take leverage away. When players hold out, it is intended to have the opposite effect. There are cases where players dig in and force a trade like Deion Branch with the Patriots in 2006, but those are the exception. I can’t imagine the Jets would move a piece as integral as Revis.
Revis is set to currently make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, which would make him one of the lowest-paid defensive backs on the roster. He wants to be the highest-paid one, which means he’s looking for something better than Nnamdi Asomugha’s three-year, $45.3 million deal.
