Jets And Revis Finally Agree

The New York Jets reached an agreement in principle with CB Darrelle Revis, ending his 36-day holdout. According to various sources, Revis will sign a 4-year contract worth $46M, which includes $32M in guaranteed money.

Head coach Rex Ryan and team owner Woody Johnson flew to South Florida over the weekend and met with Revis. This move apparently played its role in breaking the stalemate between the Gang Green and the All-Pro cornerback. The meeting, first reported by the New York Daily News, took place on Saturday. It's not clear if Revis' New York-based agents were present.

Revis, who has made $15M in his first three seasons, was due to make $21M over the next three, including $1M this season. He wanted to become the highest-paid cornerback in the league, seeking about $16M per season. According to family members, he was angry at the organization because he believed they reneged on a promise to make him the highest-paid corner.

The Jets previously offered Revis a 10-year, $120M contract and a four-year, $40M deal, but there was only a small amount of guaranteed money in each proposal. Revis' agents asked for $162M over 10 years, with more than $40M in guaranteed money.
