ESPN New York reports today that Revis along with coach Rex Ryan met about the situation, and talked it out. Ryan, as you can see below, seems ok with the answers that Revis gave, and as of now it seems that everyone is on the same page.
Until of course Revis doesn’t get what he thinks he’s worth.
Jets head coach Rex Ryan met Tuesday night with Darrelle Revis to discuss the star cornerback’s highly-publicized, mini-protest Monday at minicamp. Ryan told ESPNNewYork.com Wednesday morning that he’s satisfied with Revis’ explanation on why he sat out a few plays at the end of the morning practice. Ryan, in a phone interview, called it “a great talk. It’s funny because, when it’s a football thing, we definitely see eye to eye. He knows what I expect of him and vice versa. We definitely see eye to eye.” Revis created a firestorm by telling reporters that he asked out of practice as a way to make a statement about being unhappy with stalled contract negotiations while also saying he was lightheaded, insisting that, too, was a factor.
Ryan was somewhat evasive when asked if Revis mentioned the contract situation as a reason for sitting out. “He told me the same thing, that he was lightheaded,” Ryan said. “That was not an exaggeration. The other part of it was, he definitely & That’s not who he is. He’s a leader. Nobody works harder than Revis, with the exception of Mark Sanchez. That’s who he is. That’s what we talked about. The great thing is, he never has to apologize to me. Just go out, be yourself and that will be good enough for me.”
