This week, we are going to focus on the one situation to seemingly has a new rumor everyday, Darrelle Revis’s contract dispute with the New York Jets. Revis, arguably the NFL’s top corner back, is seeking a new contract. He and the Jets have not reached an agreement, so Revis has already begun his hold-out. So, how have contract talks progressed so far?

Haven't seen much of this...

Two words pretty much sum this situation up: Not Good.

Revis is seeking out the advice of his uncle, Sean Gilbert. Gilbert, a very talented tackle during the 1990s, did not receive a contract of his liking during the 1997 season from the Redskins. In the off-season, the Redskins traded Gilbert to the Panthers and Gilbert received his monster contract (seven-years, $46 million). Revis will sit out if the Jets don’t caught up some big-time money.

This entire Revis situation seemingly stemmed from last off-season. When dual-threat running back Leon Washington asked the Jets for a new contract, the Jets balked. Washington decide to play and broke his leg during the season. In the off-season, Washington was subsequently traded away to Seattle. The Washington example was a prime example to the rest of the Jets that they need to cash in when they can. Revis knows that he has a clear edge on Jets ownership. Without Revis shutting down the opposition’s top corner, they aren’t even a playoff team. With the Jets bringing in a ton of aging talent (Jason Taylor, LaDainian Tomlinson), it’s time to win now. Revis has to be there.

My Take: It’s time for the Jets to pay up or shut up. We listen to the entire organization run their mouths about how good their team is. Pay Revis a dollar more than the league’s highest paid corner, Nnamdi Asomugha and get his ass in camp.
