SouthernJet Posted June 3, 2010 Share Posted June 3, 2010 Are you kidding? He had a year left at over $5M, and the Jets cut him so as not to pay it. They didn't honor that contract at all. I get that contracts are structured that way on purpose, for exactly that reason, but no one should sweat when the very few players who have some leverage opt to use it. Revis' prime earning years will be over inside of 10 years. He'd be a fool to not seek every penny he could. in the NFL, the contracts are voidable,,players/agents know this, that why they get upfront cash. players also know if they are playing great they will hold out..so no mean things going on here,,its the game both sides play,,woners can be mad when a player holds out or a player who gets big bonus then sucks, and players can be mad when the owners decide that they dont need them anymore and hope u banked that signing bonus.. in MLB of NBA you have to honor contracts, NFL different..so what is surprise?
