He doesn't care about the Jets' salary cap concerns.
He doesn't care who the Jets cut to sign him to his mega contract.
It's just business.
I just can't see a guy making sure the Jets couldn't franchise him in 2014 and given up that right when he 12 months away from un restricted free agency.
This ACl injury isn't the career threaten injury it once was.
Disagree when it's just money and not money and picks there will be a lot more teams bidding on him in free agency ,than teams that want to trade for him.
With the tax rate in New York /New Jersey you think Revis wants to give up more of his dollars than he has to. Maybe he wants to play for hometown Steelers. who knows but I think he likes money more than playing in any state. So I don't know if anyone can say he wants to play in New York.
