Late last night news came in over the internet that Darrelle Revis would be showing up to the Jets training camp on time. This report was confirmed this morning by the Associated Press. Until yesterday, Revis had left the door open on a possible holdout for the second time in three years. He earned around $32.5 million over the first two years of his contract including an $18 million dollar bonus. During OTAs and much of the off season, the Jets refrained from making any comments on re-doing his deal and expected Revis to report on day one.
By reporting to camp on time, Darrelle will earn $1 million dollar training camp bonus and avoid the contract from being extended by another 3 years for only $ 3 million per year. Revis has always maintained the fact that he wishes to stay a Jet for his entire career and I hope the Jets front office gives him a new deal next off season.
But at the moment this is a huge relief for the Jet fans to have their best player in camp.
