With all the anticipated media attention surrounding the New York Jets this preseason, apparently a DARRELLE REVIS potential holdout will not be among the headlines. According to an Associated Press report, the All-Pro cornerback is expected to attend training camp when the Jets veterans report this Thursday.
Revis has two years ($13.5 million) left on the four-year, $46 million contract he signed with the Jets in 2010. Even though Revis has already cashed in on most of the front-loaded deal, the four-time Pro Bowler ultimately seeks a long-term deal with New York. Something he feels he deserves as the NFL’s best corner and team’s best defensive player.
I think it’s a plus that Revis is reporting to camp. That can’t do anything but help the Jets’ cause while both parties continue to work out a deal that satisfies each side. That also puts the media circus focus on the Tim Tebow-Mark Sanchez QB scuffle.
Oh…and anything asinine that comes out of Santonio Holmes’s mouth.
