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.
