Over the last week we've seen the Jets go public quite often when talking about the Darrelle Revis holdout.
First, Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum talked about meeting with Revis' agents at a New York diner.
Second, Jets owner Woody Johnson said he doesn't think Revis will play for the Jets this season
Third, the Jets admitted to briefly discussing trading Revis.
Now both sides have issued a statement that all talks moving forward "will remain confidential." This will certainly make Revis' holdout less entertaining but it's the best way to ensure a deal gets done.
As we're reading Gang Green Nation's recap of the first Hard Knocks episode, we're wondering if the confidential state of the talks apply to the HBO show as well.
Here's a snippet of what GGN had to say about the Revis negotiations featured on the episode Wednesday night.
There is clearly a lot of bad blood between Mike Tannenbaum and the agent. After a call, Tannenbaum remarks on how the agent talked about his wife, and it was a reminder that the guy is in fact human, which doesn't paint the image of a cozy working relationship. We don't hear the other end of the call, but the agent comes off like a real used car salesman claiming Darrelle cares about being a Jet for life.
Check out the full Hard Knocks recap, including the Revis talks, from Gang Green Nation.
