Darrelle Revis Will Reportedly Attend Jets Training Camp

Michael Lombardi of NFL Network reports that Jets CB Darrelle Revis will indeed attend training camp. A recent NY Daily News report indicated he was willing to sit out training camp until he got a new contract.

However, Lombardi reports that Revis does not want to lose future guaranteed money in his current contract.

He has the option to void his current contract at the end of the 2010 season, but the Jets have the right to buy back the remaining two years at $20 million, fully guaranteed.

If Revis were to miss any mandatory time due to a holdout, however, he might lose the guranteed portion of the contract. He would then be under contract for two more years, at $5 million in 2011 and $15 million in 2012. That potential guarantee is something he would not want to risk.

The Jets have already made two offers to Revis in the neighborhood of $100 million in the total value of the contract. However, the issue is how much of that is guaranteed.

Revis has said he just wants to be paid more than Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha, even if it's just one penny more.
