Ryan, Revis: friends again

Jets coach Rex Ryan and his unhappy star CB Darrelle Revis have made up with each other. Now, they're back to being friends.

But what about training camp? Will Revis, who so badly wants a new contract, be there? Well, that’s another story.

The NY Daily News’ Manish Mehta has the breakdown of Tuesday’s hour-long meeting between Ryan and Revis, who will make $1 million this season but as one of the league’s top-two corners probably deserves more money.

“It was a great conversation,” Revis said after today’s final minicamp practice. “We just wanted to see eye to eye and get on the same page. We got a little off the page. I skipped a couple chapters in the book. We talked and got back on the same page to understand each other in this whole situation.”

And about training camp: Revis said if he’s there, he’ll be 100 percent committed to being there. If he’s not, than he guesses he won’t. Right now, he's not sure if he'll be in attendance.

Either way, it makes sense that New York eventually will grant Revis’ request. There aren’t many talents like him out there.

Sanchez looking to bounce back

If it wasn’t his knee, it was his accuracy. On Tuesday, both combined to force Jets QB Mark Sanchez into an unimpressive performance during New York’s mini-camp workouts.

According to ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini , Sanchez was 7 of 17 during 11-on-11 drills and threw high to his receiver targets throughout the Tuesday morning practice.

In the afternoon, Sanchez, coming off knee surgery, participated only in 7-on-7 drills.

He’ll have a chance for redemption during the final practice of mini-camp today.

The latest with Revis, Mangold

Last weekend, Jets CB Darrelle Revis traveled to Cincinnati to participate in former Bengals DT John Thornton’s Bowling for Autism event, and afterward, he talked with a couple of my buddies. He told them basically the same thing he declared today: basically, he wants to be a Jet forever .

He also said today he wants to meet with Jets coach Rex Ryan.

“We’re going to try to see eye to eye and make sure this thing doesn’t get out of hand,” Revis told reporters after Tuesday’s practice. “I don’t want this to go negative. But negotiations do get crazy sometimes. We’re trying to stop it before it gets to that point.”

Meanwhile, C Nick Mangold, another of New York’s “Core Four” who wants a contract extension, isn’t pleased with the negotiations. Before this week, he said he was 50-50 about whether to show for mini-camp but ultimately decided it would be unprofessional not to fulfill his obligations.

“It’s deeply disappointing that we are where we are,” Mangold told reporters. “I’ve tried to do the right things on and off the field, and I feel it’s the Jets’ turn. Not having that security of an extension is bothersome."

As Bart Hubbach of the NY Post points out, the Jets really could upset Mangold – and protect their own interests – by not giving him a contract extension this year and then placing the franchise tag on him next season, meaning he still wouldn’t get the security of a long-term deal.

Neither Revis nor Mangold said they had thought about demanding a trade.

Some Happenings in New York

A few notes from the New York Football scene....

The Giants are practicing in their new $1.7 billion stadium for the first time today. The practice is open to the public.

Jets NT Kris Jenkins returned to the practice field for the first time since his October ACL surgery. Rex Ryan said the Jets are breaking him in slowly. Jenkins says he’s on the right track for training camp.

In other news, Ryan also told the NY Post that his “gut feeling” is Revis will “be a Jet for a long time”. Given Ryan's gut, you have to imagine that feeling is pretty intense….

ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio is covering the Jets minicamp and made a great point on Mike and Mike this morning. Paolantonio essentially said that Revis owes Rex Ryan an apology for embarrassing the coach with staged sitouts during yesterday’s practice. Ryan has been a major supporter of Revis yet wound up taking the brunt of the cornerback’s questionable negotiating ploy. Revis must remember that he’s butting heads with Mike Tannenbaum and the front office more than he’s butting heads with his coach.

UPDATE: Ralph Vacciano of the NY Daily News tweeted that Osi Umenyiora is working with the second unit. Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka are the starting defensive ends.
