Darrelle Revis still mum on holdout
Jets All Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis continues to be evasive about whether he'll show up in training camp when the Jets report to their Cortland, N.Y. training facility on July 26.
Appearing at a football clinic at Aliquippa High School in western Pennsylvania, where he played before going to the University of Pittsburgh, Revis told Mike Bires of the Beaver County Times that he wasn't sure what would happen next month.
"I don’t know,” he said. "That’s up to (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum. I really don’t know.”
Revis has repeatedly been vague about his status, mostly because of concerns about the four-year contract he signed just before the start of the 2010 season. Revis was paid $32.5 million over the first two years of the deal, but is scheduled to make a combined $13.5 million over the next two seasons.
Tannenbaum has not commented on Revis' contract. That's a major change from two years ago, when the general manager said shortly after the end of the 2009 season that re-doing Revis' contract was a high priority.
"I do talk to Mike Tannenbaum when I see him in the building (where the Jets practice),” Revis said. “But we don’t talk about contract issues. This will get resolved sooner or later.”
Revis was the 14th overall pick in 2007, and staged a contract holdout his rookie season. If he holds out this year, it would be his third in six seasons. Revis has been to four straight Pro Bowls.
