Bob Pompeani of KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh has reported on his Twitter account that the Jets and CB Darrelle Revis are close to agreeing on a new deal that would be worth 10 years and $165 million (with $65 million guaranteed).
The reason a TV reporter from Pittsburgh has jumped into the fray – joining a newspaper columnist from Dallas, Tim Cowlishaw, who said last weekend that a deal could be done today – is because Revis is originally from Pennsylvania and played his college ball at Pitt.
Of course, this comes on the heels of a NY Daily News report this morning that there were no indications that a meeting between Revis and the Jets took place Tuesday night. Also, Jay Glazer from Fox Sports disputed the signing on his Twitter account this morning.
The Jets, for their part, aren’t saying anything, neither confirming nor denying the reports that seem to pop up every hour from every region of the country. If you want to read Andy’s Revis post from last night to give you all the key background info, it’s right here in all its glory.
We’ll keep you updated here, and we’ll also keep an eye on tonight’s Hard Knocks to see if any new information emerges (which I doubt will happen, but you never know).
Anybody else ready for this saga to be over, one way or another?
UPDATE (1:33 p.m.): Steve Wyche of NFL.com spoke to Jets owner Woody Johnson today, and Johnson said there were no new developments in the Revis saga. Johnson told Wyche that things remain "status quo" at this point.
Update: Brian Bassett of TheJetsBlog.com joins Will Brinson on the CBSSports.com Football podcast to hash out all the latest Revis news.
