    "This is how far apart holdout cornerback Darrelle Revis and the Jets are on 10-year proposals they each have on the table: A staggering $40 million.

    And that doesn't even take into account the ongoing battle over signing bonus and guaranteed money.

    If they can cut their differences down by $1 million per day between now and the Jets' opener on Sept. 13 against the Ravens, the gap will be still be $7 million.

    The Daily News has learned the Jets have had a 10-year, $120 million offer on the table for months as one of their two proposals."

    "Revis has been looking to surpass Oakland's Nnamdi Asomugha as the highest-paid cornerback. Over the next two seasons, Asomugha will average $16.5 million. So do the math on a 10-year deal. That brings the number Revis wants in the $160million range. Guaranteed money? Probably about $30 million."

    Now aren't you glad we have Mr. Parcells and Mr. Sparano and Mr. Ireland running the Zoo in Miami? $160 million dollars could wreck the whole enchilada.

    It's great to be a Dolphin Fan!

    I'm happy this is happening to the Jets and not us because Oakland screwed this whole thing up.

    We can laugh now, but in two years this could be along the lines of what Vontae Davis will want.

    :lol2::lol2:

    It's always bad for the game when players hold out but this will get resolved at some point. It's fun for rivals now to poke fun but this stuff happens to every team at some point. I like to see teams at full strength, I hope all teams can remain healthy and stay clear of these types of problems but it is part of the game and the teams that navigate those rough waters the best are usually the teams that have a chance to win it all.

    Not necessarily true. This is a business move and Rex gloated about him to the point he had to demand the best money for any CB. If your HC says you are the best CB he has ever seen or coached then you would want the best money any CB has ever seen.

    I'm with Junc on this one. I never want to beat a team without all of its best players. There can be no excuses then.

    I don't have a problem with a player holding out. Amillion bucks this year may seem alot to most of us but when you can make at least 120 million everyone would hold out. I know I just outperfromed my own agreement at my job and decided to ask for a raise that was more on par with the top perfromers in my industry. Guess what I got it. If I didn't I would most likely have been looking for work somewhere that compensated me.

    The jets are getting exactly what they deserve....a loud mouth coach declared his player is the best in the league and now the player wants to be paid like it. Rex Ryan can surely call a defense but when it comes to being a forward thinking leader he is the loud mouth idiot we see on tv. I can't wait to watch him cry!

    Im probably going out on a limb here, and trust me theres nothing more that I hate more then then the stupid Jets but.....Revis needs to get paid. The guy is the best CB in the NFL hands down and he is making about 1million a year?? I dont want him to be back on that stupid team any time soon, but I think the Jets need to pay the man because he is a key part of their defense. This is what pisses me off about the NFL, rookies can get these monster ridiculous contracts and the "vets" have to fight for their contracts after they have already proven they are worth every penny?? I cant wait til the NFL sets a rookie salary.....GO PHINS and id be very happy if revis s out week 3 hahahaa (although i wana see Marshall destryo him and score 4 TDs on him hahaha).

    What is with the laughing faces? I said this COULD be what Vontae wants down the road. There is nothing wrong with expecting your first round pick cornerback to become a top notch player down the road.

    120 million would be the best money a cb has ever seen.

    Yes, b/c Rex said he was the best is why he is holding out and why he wants Manning money:rolleyes2:

    So if rex lied and said revis was good would he be ok w/ what he already was being paid? You sell revis short, he knows he's the best as does the rest of the football world regardless what rex says.

    Not to mention that Rex talked up Revis when he was drafted which is why Revis held out then too.

    People who say that Rex caused this crack me up to no end.

    ---------- Post added at 10:01 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:00 AM ----------

    FOR 3 YEARS.

    Revis wants 16 per over TEN.

    Ridiculous.

    Junc, you also have to remember that after the AFCC Game last year Woody and Tanny went to Revis and his agent and told him they wanted to rip up his old contract and sign him to a new deal. What did they think he would want if the head coach is calling him not only the #1 CB in the game but the #1 defensive player as well? He would want to be paid like the #1 player based on previous contracts handed out to players. Sure, everyone in NY is blaming Al Davis but why no hate to the Skin or Bears for signing Haynesworht or Peppers, or more importantly the Broncos. I read in a article on PFT that if the CBA wouldn't have been voided this year Nmandi wouldln't have been the highest paid CB it would have been Champ Bailey.

    Here is the quote: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...mughas-deal-wasnt-as-bad-as-the-jets-suggest/

    So now tell me where is the uproar for Revis' contract based on this information. There isn't any because most fans from NY have never heard it.

    I like you think this situation will play itself out before the regular season starts, but to put all of the blame on Revis' shoulders when the front office started this whole fiasco with the contract extension talk is really short sighted.

    My understanding is that Revis wants the type of security that Jeter got from the Yankees. He also wants to be paid more then Nnamndi. My question would be that if Revis got what he wanted and signed a 10 year deal, what is to stop him from doing this again when another CB or even defensive player gets a bigger per year salary?

    I think this may play out a few weeks in to the season before it's resolved. Revis has really painted himself in to a corner now that he has lost the season as a credit towards free agency status. The Jets hold all the cards here. I do hope it is resolved prior to the season so there can be no excuse making.

    This is too funny!!!

    Rex and his big mouth started this mess.

    Now the media is all up in it and it's snowballing out of control!

    This is why Bill has a clamp down on who say's what and when.

    I don't get why people see Revis as greedy? He is asking for pay commensurate with his skills. He is the little guy here. The billionaire owner of the Jets will always be rich. Revis might not. He wasn't born rich. He could blow out his knee tomorrow at training camp and his career and ability to earn income could be destroyed forever. The Jets owner could blow out his knee and not miss a beat. He would still own the Jets and be able to sit on his crippled butt and make millions.

    The reason Revis seems greedy is because of the scale. It seems crazy that he is asking for that much money, but that is what #1 cornerbacks in the league make!

    That said, if he gets traded or signs elsewhere or holds out all season, the Jets D will be totally different because they wont have a lockdown corner. B. Marshall will destroy that secondary.

    I am one of the people that hopes he doesn't play or goes to another team. 1) the Jets are weaker 2) I love to hear the excuses when they lose to us. In a real sarcastic voice: "Awe, really, that's too bad you lost because your best player left to get paid. I feel so sorry for you, NOT!"

    I never complain about what guys make, players aren't overpaid but he held out for this current deal which has 3 years left on it so you can see why people are getting annoyed w/ him. On the other hand the Jets approached him about ripping his deal up and if a player gets hurt they cut him so I understand he wants maximum securiity. I think the Jets and revis share the blame here, hopefully they'll be able to get something done before it can really affect our season.

    The Jets FO has been pretty crafty about all this so far: all the interviews with Woody Johnson and Tannenbaum, even Ryan's press conference today, they keep putting the ball in Revis' court. It makes him look like a total a-hole unwilling to negotiate. Theyre killing him in the court of public opinion.

    Yep, he is setting the bar for CB money higher than it has ever been (once all is said and done). IF Vontae develops into the type of corner we all hope, in 2-3 years time we'll be dealing with the same headache. Of course the same can be said of a lot of positions, WR, RB, QB, etc etc. Every fan wants superstars at every position, but the facts are that there just isn't enough money to go around to pay an entire team of probowlers.

    This is all of our faults for paying $100 for jerseys, $150 for crappy tickets and 9 bucks for crappy beer. Everyone is overpaid.

    Now back to reality. There's one thing to expect 16 million this year, but to expect 16 ten years from now is so beyond unrealistic it blows my mind. Even great QB's have contracts that give them less as the contract goes on.

    Honestly, the jets defense is probably good enough without him. Not taking anything away from Revis, he's good. And I don't compliment the Jets if I don't have to. But I hope the Jets don't end up completely giving in to him. I know they (think) they are smelling that ring and don't want to have that ole' 20/20 hindsight and think it would have been nice to have Revis when they look back and see us wearing it.

    Their defense works because they can overload players on blitzes since Revis could single cover his guy. Without Revis you need alot more Safety support, which means less guys coming.
    Is this not the case?

    My opinion on this topic regardless of the player or skill is the same: You are getting paid millions to PLAY a GAME. They are making more money than the vast majority of us make in a year, yet they demand more and more. I can understand wanted to get paid more than a million per year, but holding out to be the richest cornerback and refusing to play until you get it is just ridiculous.

    He should just take the money and play. I have no doubt he will sign by the time the jets open the season though.
    If I were the best at my position I would just take the 120 million. I mean whats so important between having 120 and 160 million?

    Typical greedy move by a selfish player, the TEAM has offered to re-do his contract so he repays them by holding out and demanding more money then a player that has been the best CB in football for YEARS. To top it off he also was a FA not under contract like Revis, Revis has had one year under his belt where you could say he was one of the best CB's in football.

    I hope he gets every penny so they can be screwed over when the cap comes back and have no room for what N.Mangold wants let alone, D.Harris, and B.Edwards.

    When 120 million isn't good enough for a player who's scheduled to make around 1 million it's very difficult to back these guys but makes it easy to root against them. Revis should look at what happened to L.Washington when he didn't except their contract for around 35 million then got hurt. One fluke play and Revis may not ever see a huge pay day, sign the contract loser.

    Woody Johnson should hold his ground and rescind his offer forcing Revis to play out the rest of his contract. If he sits then he gets nothing and if he plays and struggles at all he'll be wishing he signed it. If they pay him what would stop M.Sanchez to do the same thing if he has a great year, he'll demand more money then Manning and Brady,lol and why not.

    This has to be one of the biggest things I hate about some pro athletes, getting offered more money then you ever know what to do with but it's still not enough. What a joke!
