More On Revis' Situation

According to the Sporting News, the Jets might actually benefit if CB Darrelle Revis, who skipped yesterday's OTA, holds out from non-voluntary practice sessions. Revis' original contract voids after the 2010 season, the Gang Green can buy back the 2011 and 2012 seasons for $5M and $15M, respectively - and that money is guaranteed. However, if Revis holds out, he will lose the guaranteed money, giving the Jets some leverage in negotiating a new deal.

Revis has to decide whether to risk losing the guarantees by skipping mandatory minicamp or any portion training camp. His agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, haven't been bashful about taking a stand. Last year, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White, who also is represented by Schwartz and Feinsod, boycotted training camp until he got paid.

As a rookie, Revis held out nearly three weeks before getting his unconventional contract that goes from six years to four back to six, with a huge back-end payout.
