Other Reporters Come Forward With Doubts Over Report On Revis Contract

Hours after Dallas Morning News writer and ESPN "Around the Horn" panelist Tim Cowlishaw possibly broke the news on Sunday afternoon that the New York Jets and cornerback Darrelle Revis had reached an agreement on a long-term contract that would be announced Wednesday, several other prominent NFL reporters have cast doubt on Cowlishaw's exclusive report.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen tweeted that his sources with the Jets have denied Cowlishaw's report.

Newsday's Bob Glauber cited a league source "familiar with the Revis situation" as saying that the report is inaccurate.

New York Daily News Jets beat writer Manish Mehta tweeted that the Jets and Revis have no plans to have a contract announcement on HBO this week, though communication lines remain open.

NFL.com's Jason La Canfora announced that the Revis report was not correct and presumed that the error was the result of confusion as to which player was making progress in contract negotiations with the team. According to him, that player is center Nick Mangold.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio is also pushing the likelihood that Mangold is the player who is most likely next to receive a contract extension with the Jets.

Shortly after Cowlishaw first reported the impending deal, he tweeted that he expected other Jets writers to shoot down his report, and that Jets officials would deny it, since it's not Wednesday yet. While it's possible that he's the lone correct voice beating back a mob of doubters, Cowlishaw better hope his prediction comes to pass on Wednesday, lest he have a lot of egg on his face.
