At the end of the day I'd bet Revis is a jet for at least the next 5 years.
I will take that Bet. Revis didn't let the Jets have the upperhand(he couldn't hold out or his contract was extended) for the right to be a unrestricted FA in 2014. Without a reason. Revis might be greedy, but he isn't stupid. The Jets in 2012 (with two years left on contract) might have gotten something done long term, but not one year away from totally unrestricted FA.(no franchise tag to play with) You snooze, you lose.
