The spector of the Darrelle Revis contract, and possible holdout, has come up again as we all know. One guy that will not weigh in, is Jets owner Woody Johnson.

“I can say this: Darrelle Revis is a very important part of the New York Jets,” Johnson said tonight at MetLife Stadium, where he was honored by Daytop New Jersey for his support of substance abuse treatment for teens and young adults. “We drafted him, so we know exactly how good he is. We respect his talent, he’s an integral part of the team, he’s been great at all of our practices, respected by his teammates.”

He went on to talk about the policy of not to discuss contracts, defer to Mike Tannenbaum, and say he expects Revis to be playing for the Jets in 2012.

We know he held out two years ago, we were all watching it play out on TV. Remember, the contract was frontloaded, with $16.5 million per year of the first two years and $13.5 million per year for this year and next. Revis may be expecting a new deal after Tannenbaum alluded to the newly negotiated contract in 2010 as an “intermediate” deal.
