We know that the Darrelle Revis contract thing has come up again. It’s debatable as to whether or not it is an issue at this point, you have seen me write about how the issue is not a big deal yet.  Fact is though, it might be a situation.

As such, Maurisse Johnson of Jets Gab takes an interesting look at Revis, and the possibility that he might not be worth it to the Jets soon.  Here is an excerpt:

This issue or the angle that Revis is playing isn’t one sided: NFL teams who cut players before their contract is up aren’t living up to the deal they too negotiated. NFL teams want to keep roster stacked with rookies and veterans who are paid at the veteran minimum so that they’re salary cap stays low, while the TV revenue sharing guarantees them more than enough to keep them in black.

It’s an interesting take, that is for sure. Please read his thoughts in their entirety by clicking here.

It is definitely a version that I hadn’t thought, I don’t know about you guys.  It’s had to picture the Jets without Revis, but you have to wonder, could having to sign him over and over again to frontloaded contracts every few years become, as Johnson said, too costly?

It’s not impossible.

    Nothing is impossible Alan, and I think a lot of it depends on not just on money but Revis’s ambitions himself. He can choose to be the villain here by either leaving or forcing the Jets to spend and obscene amount of money (tough to overpay when someone is that good, but that almost happened to Carl Nicks in free agency) or just leaving entirely. I think he plays it smart and avoids a bigger PR mess by staying, but the Jets and Revis need to compromise. Revis needs to get his act together and quit acting like DeSean Jackson.

      good point. I like the analogy with DeSean Jackson. I know nothing is impossible, I just hadn’t thought of it until the writer put the scenario out there. I would hate to see Revis leave, definitely possible, also possible that the Jets at some point let him go.

      My point earlier in the week was that it isn’t an issue yet, since he hasn’t actually held out. People are killing him for maybe holding out, rather than waiting until he actually holds out.

      Agreed on all you had to say, thanks for reading Joe
