In 2010, Darrelle Revis held out well into Training Camp and the Preseason in search of a new contract. He got one, a 4 year deal, but 2 years later, he appears to be unsatisfied with deal once again. That’s not in doubt, but what is in doubt is whether or not he’ll attend Training Camp. Revis was noncommittal when asked about the issue in an interview with the New York Daily News.
Revis’ 4 year deal that he signed in 2010 was heavily frontloaded and will only pay him 13.5 million combined over the next 2 seasons. Both sides had to know that a disagreement was a strong possibility 2 years into the deal and the Jets might have had a plan to deal with the situation when the time came. Both sides probably want to avoid a long holdout because Revis struggled (by his standards) in 2010 after the holdout.
Revis made 32.5 million combined over the first 2 seasons of his deal and probably wants to be paid like that over the next 4-6 years. Only 26, Revis probably wants a deal that will top the 60 million over 5 years that Nnamdi Asomugha got from the Eagles last offseason at age 30. The two sides will probably get a deal done, it’s just a matter of when.
