    Revis done with Jets...(possibly in 18 months)? This does not sound good

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...drama-plays-on

    The New York Jets will experience life without Darrelle Revis for the next 13 games -- and perhaps permanently after the 2013 season.
    It's a scary thought for the Jets and their fan base, but Sunday's season-ending knee injury has clouded the future of the best cornerback on the planet. The confluence of several factors -- injury, contract and pride -- could force player and team to confront the sobering possibility of parting ways.

    Robert Mayer/US PresswireWill Darrelle Revis retire a Jet after all?



    Ever since they renegotiated his contract in 2010 -- the so-called "Band-Aid" deal -- the Jets have been pointing to 2013 (before the season) as the time to return to the bargaining table to hammer out a long-term extension that would enable Revis to "retire" a Jet.
    They have to do it before Revis plays out his contact because there's a clause in his current deal that prohibits the Jets from using the franchise tag when he becomes a free agent after the 2013 season. If they let him hit the free-agent market, he's as good as gone.
    Now here's the tricky part: Can the Jets pay fair-market value for a player coming off major surgery? Will Revis and his hard-line agents accept anything less? They're not the type that will give injury discounts, and this is a player looking for north of $16 million per year, conservatively -- the number that was whispered last offseason, when Revis was mulling a holdout. Right now, he's averaging $11.5 million annually.
    "It's a real problem," a longtime general manager said Tuesday, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "You could say all bets are off. Until you see it -- until you see him at 100 percent -- do you want to make that kind of investment? I don't know many teams that would."
    Clearly, the injury hurts Revis more than the Jets. With another Revis-type season in 2012, he would've had all the leverage next spring and summer during negotiations, using his impending free agency in 2014 as the hammer.
    It all changed Sunday in Miami, where he blew out his knee in a freakish, non-contact injury. But know this: Revis' agents are pit bulls, with a long history of acrimony involving the Jets, and some in the industry believe they won't lower their demands.

    Drawn from more than five decades of history, "I don't see Revis saying, 'I'm going to settle,'" one prominent agent said. "He'll rehab until he's 100 percent and demand the world. It could be an ugly situation."


    Timing will be everything.
    Revis faces a six- to nine-month rehab, according to Marc Rubman, an orthopedic surgeon and sports-medicine specialist at Atlantic Sports Health in Morristown, N.J. Barring complications, Revis should be ready for training camp next July, he said.
    Rubman said there's every reason to believe Revis, still only 27, will return to his old self. But there's no guarantee: "These guys, at this level, you worry if they lose one-tenth of a step."
    The Jets can evaluate Revis next preseason, but can they formulate a strong opinion based on that? We're not talking about a three-year, $10 million contract here; this probably will be the biggest deal in team history, one that could blow up their salary cap if it backfires. This figured to be a tough negotiation before the injury. Now it could be a massive headache.
    The longtime GM said he'd wait until a few games into the regular season before determining how much he'd be willing to pay on a long-term deal. A lot of athletes don't like negotiating during the season. In Revis' case, he could decide to play out the season and try free agency. That would be risky, of course.
    "When he looks at that money, he's not going to say no," the GM said. "The only way he says no is if they treat him poorly and he says, 'I'll never play for the Jets again.'"
    The agent said he could envision a scenario in which the Jets, unwilling to meet Revis' demands, try to deal him before the 2013 trading deadline. Of course, they'd have to find a team willing to compensate the Jets and accept the risk-reward of a mega-contract.
    Revis' season is over. The drama isn't.

    A completely speculative article based on nothing factual.

    No team will be willing to pay Revis more than the Jets.

    Not the point, the point is becasue of the franchise tag option in his contract, sounds like we would have to pay him before seeing if he's still got it... if we wait, then you know he's testing free agency

    I wouldn't pay him anyway. Let's just get a pass rush then we don't need any good corners. WE could have no secondary at all like the Giants every year.

    Exactly what I was going to post. He's worth more to the Jets than to other teams. For better or worse, the Jets will offer more to Revis than the next highest bidder, if it even comes to that.

    well.. Revis can't sit out of the 2013 training camp, or 4 years are added onto his deal. That means he'll have to show up and prove that he's healthy. If he is, and the Jets want to proceed, they'll have the entire 2013 season to work out a deal with Revis. What's the issue again?

    I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but who cares if he comes back to us or not?

    One position, unless its a franchise qb should not eat up 20% of your cap space

    The Jets having a lack of talent across the board and need to fill all these spots

    to reach their goal. Paying Revis would make this nearly impossible.

    Rich Cimini needs to pump out X amount of articles every day, so he figured he'd spend one purely speculating.

    Revis will no doubt try to prove his worth that he's 100% back before he signs any deal. Hopefully he will negotiate during training camp/regular season with the Jets.

    people DO realize he's under contract through next year?

    and that if he holds out it triggers a clause that extends the Jets rights over him for an additional 4 years?


    it sucks for Revis and it sucks for the 2012 Jets, but this injury gives us all the leverage for his contract going forward.

    You're not!
    I feel exactly the same way.
    We all know what a stud Revis is. We just have too many other holes to fill.

    I think the NYJ need to already be in 'move on mode' regarding him.

    And can we please stop pretending like Revis is making just pennies? He's an unbelievable player and all, no doubt, but he made $15 million entering his holdout year of 2010, and then a guaranteed $32.5 million on top of that.

    Does he deserve to be paid handsomely? Yes. Provided he makes a full recovery, is he worth a big contract? Yes. Is he in a financial crisis? No. Will he, in the next two lifetimes, be in a financial crisis? No. Let's have some perspective, please.

    Yes I realize this, but the clause mentioned in the article is the clause that if he plays 2013, then we can NOT franchize him.... I doub't he'll sign a contract during the year and would wait to be a free agent...
