Revis Unhappy With Contract Talks, Holds Out From OTA

According to a league source, CB Darrelle Revis held out of Thursday's offseason training activity because he is unhappy with the progress of talks to rework his contract. He is set to make $1M in the fourth year of the six-year deal he signed as a rookie, but recently stated that he expects to make more than $15.2M a year, which is what Oakland CB Nnamdi Asomugha makes, as he wants to be the highest-paid cornerback in the game.

Last year Revis had his best season, establishing himself as the best cornerback in the game. He, however, failed to win the Defensive Player of the Year title, which was awarded to Green Bay's CB Charles Woodson.

Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum did not comment on Revis' absence from today's OTA session. But the Jets general manager reiterated that the team is "committed" to getting done a long-term extension for the All-Pro cornerback, "within reason."

It is unclear when Revis will return. Although this part of the training schedule is voluntary, the Jets have a mandatory minicamp starting June 14, and players will be fined if they miss a day.
