    What does the injury to Revis do to his hopes for a bigger contract ?

    Revis wanted to redo his contract and get bigger bucks and with the injury I would guess that is going to be shelved for now. However my questions is what does this injury do to his past level of play? Do you think he can recover and get back to 100% or will the Jets take a wait and see attitude ?

    He is now an older CB with a bad wheel. They will wait until he has proven that he is healthy before they pay him on a new deal.

    Next season would be his last under contract IIRC - and he has a no-franchise-tag clause, so things are really set to come to head.

    This is all a huge U-turn for this franchise . . .ugh

    Revis will be back 100% by training camp. An acl tear is nothing nowadays.

    Adrian peterson tore his acl and mcl 9 months ago and is already getting 20 carries a game.

    Jamal charles tore his acl 1 year ago and rushed for 250 yards last week.

    this really just assures that Revis will not hold out next training camp, which we all knew would have happened had he been healthy.

    IIRC he has a no-holdout clause in his contract that is effective for next season.

    No doubt he'll be healthy, but it does muddy the waters with his contract negotiations. He's going to still want his huge contract. If we don't give it to him he's going on the open market the following year. Maybe that's for the best but I for one would really like to see him retire a Jet one day.

    imo this can be looked at two ways. way one is he's damaged goods and needs to prove himself before the jets will commit to more money or contract duration. way two is revis will want to get a large payday and will want lots of guaranteed money if and when he reups. can both requirements live together? maybe but it really only works if he comes back and is effective.

    He could become the first player to hold out after a torn ACL.

    It significantly ups the chance that he walks after 2013. If they're smart they still give him a new deal next summer. If they don't I don't see why he wouldn't wait out the year and get full market value, which someone will absolutely pay.

    Jets can't franchise him.

    I think this is true. It does mean that he will likely not hold out next summer which he would have done before the injury happened. It's unlikely that the Jets offer him a record contract with a large guarantees without seeing how he performs in season.

    The only possibility to a contract next summer might be one with a lot of very attainable performance bonus's attached.

    He might also hobble into Tanny's office holding a gun to his own head, then demand millions or say he'll pull the trigger.

    It hurts it a lot. It pretty much takes 10-20 mil off his expected total. No team next year will be looking to take on a 13-16 mil a year CB coming off a leg injury. What Aso got is pretty much his roof now. The JETS can low ball him with 5 years 60 mil and that will no longer be a low ball figure.

    So then he could make them an offer they can't refuse before coming back or wait to come back, prove himself and ask for a lot more money.

    If he was smart, he won't hold up. He stay has to prove he can come back and be the Revis he was before the ACL injury.

    Jason Sehorn went from an All-Pro CB to a JAG after his ACL injury.

    Revis has to prove himself

    To be honest, I don't think he's going anymore. We will find a way to get a deal done to get Revis locked up long-term

    Revis will either get traded in the offseason or he will play out next year and we'll let him walk.

    First off, this does not hurt Revis much on his contract. Guys come back fine from ACL's now and he's only 27. He's not going to give us a home town discount. And he knows that as long as he has a nice year next season, some team will give the best CB in the league close to 100 mil. He's still going to get a 6-7 year deal for close to 100. No question!!

    And we should not be the ones paying it. It will be a team that feels they are a CB away. The Jets did not win it all with Revis when the team was loaded with ballers. And now we have too many holes on the offense, at pass rusher and LB to give a CB 90-100 mil.

    Lets see how we do this season w/o Revis and use that money or pics + money too rebuild this team in the more important areas. Offense and pass rushers.

    he's only going to get the big numbers if he does well next season. which i hope he does. although he's going to be upset for playing for 3mm but he's getting a free paycheck this year for just playing in one game...
