After today, one of the big questions looming is the contract situation between cornerback Darrelle Revis and the Jets, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.
Revis is scheduled to make $13.5 million over the next two years, which is considered a bargain for a player of his caliber. But Revis has been one of the NFL’s highest-paid players over the first two years of the contract, which is why New York believes Revis should play out at least one more season.
Mortensen said Revis is playing like a top-five player, and the Jets will not be a contender without Revis. Those factors could mean leverage for the best cornerback in football.
“That one, he’s kept everybody guessing,” Mortensen said on ESPN radio’s “Mike and Mike” this morning. “I’m almost surprised if he’s there on Day 1.”
