Tony Kurdzuk/The Star-LedgerCornerback Darrelle Revis had left the door open during the offseason to a possible contract holdout.
Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis plans to report to training camp on time, according to a report by the Associated Press.
Revis had left the door open to a potential contract holdout this offseason, saying he couldn't guarantee he would be in Cortland, N.Y., when players are due to report Thursday. But according to the AP, Revis has elected against holding out for the third time in his six-year career.
Revis' business manager, John Geiger, tweeted last night "Where is a good place to stay in Cortland?" which appeared to be a good sign. He later deleted the tweet.
By reporting, Revis will receive a $1 million reporting bonus and will also avoid tacking on three extra years to his contract at a modest $3 million per season. In 2010, after a lengthy preseason holdout, Revis signed a seven-year deal that voids to a four-year, $46 million deal if he does not hold out.
Revis earned $32.5 million over the first two years of his contract, including an $18 million option bonus earned last year. He is scheduled to earn a total of $13.5 million in 2012 and 2013. He hopes to receive a long-term deal with the Jets, but the question appeared to be after how many years each side -- Revis and the Jets -- expected his deal to be re-done.
