Dan Parr over at Pro Football Weekly has the latest on the Darrelle Revis/Jets situation, and says that while some stated this week a deal would be done, it seems that instead, things are going nowhere fast as Revis continues to gain fine after fine from the team.
There have been multiple reports suggesting the Jets and CB Darrelle Revis are close to agreeing on a new contract, but the Jets and Revis’ agents are not commenting on negotiations because of the confidentiality agreement both sides agreed to. The only recent hint was dropped by Jets owner Woody Johnson, who said “things remain status quo,” when asked about the negotiations at the owners meetings in Atlanta on Aug. 25. Johnson, who already said he doesn’t expect Revis to play for the Jets in 2010, hasn’t given Jets fans any reason to be optimistic about the chances of the All-Pro corner joining the team anytime soon.
Revis is reportedly seeking a deal that will pay him $162 million over 10 years, but the Jets have offered $40 million less over that span. The team also has offered him a shorter deal. Revis’ holdout has lasted for nearly a month and he has been fined $16,000 for each day missed.
