Darrelle Revis says sit down with Jets GM, owner has to happen 'sooner or later'

Star-Ledger file photoDarrelle Revis said there hasn't been any movement on a new deal.

Sitting out of mini camp was never an option for Darrelle Revis, even though he said again today that he couldn't confirm his attendance at training camp next month in Cortland.

With his third potential holdout looming, he said he's learned from past situations. He believes a sit down with general manager Mike Tannenbaum, owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan is inevitable.

"I have grown, I've been in a lot of situations, you guys gotta remember even my rookie year, my rookie contract I didn't get in until late," he said. "The second one, it was the same type of scenario but we'll see. When me, Mike, Rex and Mr. Johnson sit down at that point we'll discuss it and see what the future is for me. I think that's the best way I can sum it up."

When asked if a sit down was confirmed with Ryan, Johnson and Tannenbaum, Revis said: "Sooner or later it has to, I got two more years left so we'll see and we'll go from there. Whatever is best for me and the organization we'll get through it."

Revis said that there's been no update on talks regarding a new deal.

"I haven't talked to my agents so I can't really speak on that right now," he said.

In the meantime, Revis plans to wait for the right time to enter discussions with Tannenbaum and Johnson. He said he's not concerned about what a third holdout would do to his public perception.

"No, this is my situation and my career and that's how you have to look at it," he said. "It's not like I don't love the New York Jets fans...sooner or later we have to talk about it, that's just how the fans can look at it."

Matt Slauson said that the offensive players voted on their top lifters this offseason and, despite recovering from shoulder surgery, he managed to finish fourth.

However, he joked, he did not beat out Tim Tebow. According to Slauson, the standings shook out like this:

1. Dustin Keller

2. Tim Tebow

3. Vlad Ducasse

4. Matt Slauson

Slauson was turned loose today and was able to be more involved in offseason practice than ever before. He said his shoulder wasn't a hinderance at all.

"I didn't have one little twinge, one little nothing," he said. "I felt great...I was actually hoping to be at this point a little quicker but they keep saying hey, we need you for August, not for now. But I'm just happy I got the nod now and I'm able to do at least half the reps."

No team treats everyone the same. If they want the best CB in the NFL lock him up longterm and be done with it.If not, explore thre possibilities. I'd rather they keep him.

But if not, let's get it over with instead of the August drama and diner bullsheet. Not having either Revis or players equal to his value on opening day is a recipe for disaster.This team is not very good on offense, and it's defense despite improvement on the DL and at safety will need to bail the offense out -again. It's stupid; either they want him and they will pay him(and they do and should) or get him out of here and fill some holes.

All signs so far point to a holdout unless the JETS wilt under pressure. I hope the JETS grow a spine this time around.

But if this gets resolved quickly and quietly, how will Tannenbaum get to show the world how smart he is?

So... This is news?

Press asks him about it daily. His response is "sooner or later" lol.

In other words, this is about as exciting as if they asked him if he pooped today. "Not yet, but it'll happen sooner or later."

Hahaha... Media sucks.

POTENTIAL.

Only line of the article that says anything. Conjecture to exploit the fears of the fan base.

This. If they can't redo his deal for cap reasons this year, they should make it clear to him that they have every intention of doing so ASAP. He's the best corner in the league and everyone knows it, so let's just pay him as such and get it over with.

I'd wait.. if Sanchez doesn't develop this season, we're likely not winning a SB anytime soon. At that point, you just trade him

For once I agree with you. I believe the writers read these boards and laugh their arses off seeing how many times they can get us to freak out with the same non story. It's crazy how many articles have been written with no real information.

Enjoy your time Revis. You're an ACL tear away from being just another player making league minimum. You'll be out of football with no real life skills to fall back on and you'll have pissed all of your money away.

a$$hole.

the team doesn't get closer to a super bowl by trading their best player

there are no free agents that add up to what Revis brings.

he's basically the best defender in the league. If you get lucky enough to find a franchise player, keep him happy. It's that simple.

Need a QB, if Sanchez is going to be a career bottom half of the league guy who keeps his job cause he's got a top 1-3 defense covering him, we ain't winning sh*t..

Stick sanchez on the browns or rams or any of the other truly hapless teams out there and he's on the bench by now

Hahahaha

I just took what amounted to a 15% wage reduction at work. I'm a bit bitter and have zero sympathy.

I agree with your argument that he's gotta get paid at some point and later will cost more, but damn the man has to have some degree of honor. Perhaps they need to work performance based accelerators and/or decelerators into the next one. I don't know.

That's why I have a History degree and I'm not a G.M.

Making the case for Revis to hold out while he's on top of his game. I like it!

You realize most of the time I talk football, I'm advocating that fans don't over-react to garbage sports media right?

Some fans suck too. The ones who jump to conclusions, believe everything they read, and even bring up that he gave up a ******* catch in a minicamp. A minicamp. I swear, the people around here really suck lately. Not meant at you Optimus. The guy can't even give up a pass on what sounded like an awesome catch without people overreacting to that as well.

Yes I do. I just usually don't find the umph to reply when I agree with you lol

Where I disagree is that I tend to look at every situation individually. Most of the time the media is drumming up the troops. Other times there are reasons to bitch. Complaining is part of being a fan. I do it far less than I used to in years past, but sometimes ya just gotta bitch and moan.

Like that friggin Sparano article. Boy does that get my panties all bunched up. :D
