The Pats went through that with Asante Samuel. There may have been others also. I think the players have to convince the team that they're willing to sit out the major portion of a season to get what they want, ala Logan Mankins.
As for the Revis situation, I can't believe that his value is really that high. How many games has he missed? He doesn't care much for making tackles does he? I can still see him doing a complete ole' against Tebow on a run last year. He wants too much money and there's no guarantee that he'll honor the contract anyway. He also comes across as very selfish. If I were a Jets fan I'd be delighted to get whatever I could for the guy. He's going to leave anyway.
