Revis, despite report, no closer to deal

Are the New York Jets leaking incorrect information to the media in order to make themselves look good and star CB Darrelle Revis look bad? According to sources of the New York Post’s Bart Hubbach , Revis thinks that might be the case.

Newsday reported Thursday that the Jets would add six years to Revis’ contract that could make his total deal worth $100 million. Hubbach wrote today that Revis’ friends say a contract like that wouldn’t be worth much to him unless it came with guaranteed money.

Even worse for the Jets? Revis apparently distrusts his employers. From Hubbach’s story:

People close to Revis said he considers the Jets to be the source of that leaked report and that he feels it was yet another attempt by the team to make itself look good while making Revis appear greedy.

The Jets denied leaking the information, releasing a statement last night that said, "Throughout these negotiations, we have expressed our appreciation and respect for Darrelle as a player and a person, as well as our commitment to finding a resolution that works for both sides."

Revis already is angry at the Jets for what he thinks was their leak to an Internet site last month – also intended to make him look greedy – that said he was demanding $20 million a year. Revis is seeking $16.2 million a year.


Every day brings something new in the Revis saga. One day, he’s falsely claiming that his hamstring hurts and sits out some plays at practice. The next, he and coach Rex Ryan are proclaiming their love for each other. The next, Revis is accusing New York of planting stories in the press.
