Each & every year this organization has something. Revis is a great player, but he's just 1 guy & a cornerback at that.
Now if we had Tom Brady & Woody didn't want to make him the highest paid player in the NFL than I'd have a problem with that decision.
For some weird reason, the Jets always seem to have their best players turn into malcontent douches.
It happened with John Abraham, then Keyshawn, and Revis & his agents have been an issue the day he was drafted.
But seriously, how can you not side with the Jets when it comes to Revis?
When has this guy ever shown that he's all about the team? He held out with 2 years left on his contract.
His agents abused Tanny & look where redoing that contract has us today. Say what you will about the new sheriff in town in Jacksonville & even though MJD is by far their best player, he stood his ground.
Once you cave in to a player like Revis it NEVER ENDS.
The audacity of Revis to go on the NFL network crying that Jets aren't letting him know what's going on is laughable.
He had 2 effing years left on his contract & the Jets redid it, and his agents put in a Clause that the Jets COULD NOT FRANCHISE HIM.
So tell me again, what did the Jets actually get out of that reworked contract?
Not much considering he missed almost all of last year.
If you want to be consistent in this league you have to follow the same principle as the Pats, Steelers, Ravens, Packers, Giants.
Just look at those teams & the players that of grumble in the past. Osi has been *****ing for 2 years. Steelers told Wallace, sorry. Pats told Welker, " we luv ya little guy, but we are not paying you long term".
Only 1 guy in the NFL deserves the really big bucks if you want to win a Superbowl & that's the franchise QB.
Just wait until Revis loses a step & is no longer granted Michael Jordan status with the refs in this league. Sure he has great technique but let's be fair, he's always got his hands on the receivers, he's just great at it & gets the benefit of the doubt because of his reputation.
If the Jets want to be a well rounded balanced team that consistently gets to the playoffs, you don't do that by paying a CB , QB money.
