here's where it started-tell me Revis doesn't come across like an a-hole

Unhappy Revis sits out some plays

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Darrelle Revis' contract dispute with the New York Jets took a sharp turn toward ugly Monday, when the All-Pro cornerback admitted he removed himself from a minicamp practice as a form of protest.

"Sat out for a little bit just to let them know I can play or I can't play," said Revis, who escalated the one-sided war of words by claiming the Jets' latest contract proposal was an "insult" because it contained no guaranteed money.

Initially, Revis mentioned lightheadedness and a pulled hamstring as the reasons for his decision to take a seat, but it was clear that he wasn't serious. He said he informed secondary coach Dennis Thurman that it was contract related, but that message never got to coach Rex Ryan, who was caught off-guard when asked by reporters about Revis' protest.

"I'll talk to Darrelle," Ryan said. "That's the first I've heard of it."

Pressed, the coach finally admitted, "Yeah, that would disappoint me, sure." But Ryan also said he wouldn't want a player on the practice field if he wasn't 100 percent focused.

Ryan added that the contract issue would not be a distraction for the team. Revis was a full participant in the afternoon practice.

The latest chapter in the Revis soap opera came on a day in which the Jets held an open practice, inviting fans to their facility to watch the first practice in a mandatory minicamp. Toward the end, Revis quietly walked to the sideline and was replaced by Dwight Lowery. It's believed that Revis missed seven plays. It doesn't sound like a lot, but in some ways, it was a louder statement than if he didn't show up at all.

Afterward, Revis stepped up his criticism of the Jets' negotiating tactics, accusing them of breaking promises. He said GM Mike Tannenbaum told him "face to face" the organization wanted to make him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. That title belongs to the Oakland Raiders' Nnamdi Asomugha, who averages $15.1 million per year.

A team spokesman said Tannenbaum had no comment on Revis' claim, saying the GM doesn't discuss private conversations with players.

Revis isn't the only disgruntled Jet. All-Pro center Nick Mangold, entering the final year of his contract, showed up for minicamp after threatening to skip it, but he's still upset. He wasn't available to the media.

"As of right now, it doesn't look good," said Revis, who has three years, $21 million left on his deal. "To me, it's like an insult. You're sending me [proposals] without guaranteed money in the contract. That's not good."

Tannenbaum has said he'd like to re-sign Revis to a long-term deal as long as it's "within reason." The Jets don't consider Asomugha's deal within reason. It's believed they offered Revis about $10 million per year, which would make him the second-highest paid corner, but one of their proposals included no guarantees, according to sources.

The Jets say they want to do right by Revis, but they're showing no sense of urgency because he's signed through 2012. By doing so, their best defensive player is getting hotter by the day.

"It's about loyalty," Revis said. "You sit here and tell guys you're the best player in the league and you're our No. 1 priority, but you're not showing loyalty in terms of keeping your core guys here. If you want to build a dynasty, you have to be loyal to your players."

Some within the organization were surprised that Revis, regarded as one of the most competitive players on the team, took himself out. It conjured up memories of 2007, when guard Pete Kendall, claiming the organization reneged on its promise to renegotiate his contract, moped through training-camp practices. He was benched and eventually traded to the Washington Redskins.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Kendall and Revis are represented by the same agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod.

People close to Revis believe he's serious about staging a training-camp holdout. Based on a clause in his contract, the money he's due to make in 2011 and 2012 (a total of $20 million) no longer would be guaranteed if he holds out. Officially, it doesn't become guaranteed until after the 2010 season, when his deal voids and the Jets can (make that will) exercise a buyback option.

But the way Revis sees it, he'd also be taking a huge risk if he plays this season at his current $1 million salary. If he suffers a career-threatening injury before the buyback, the Jets could opt against the buyback. That would make him an unrestricted free agent.

Revis was asked if he'd settle for $1 more than Asomugha. He smiled.

"It can be 50 cents more," he said. "Just give me 50 cents more and we'll be OK."

"It can be 50 cents more," he said. "Just give me 50 cents more and we'll be OK."

Better question would've been if he'd take $.01 less.

What a despicable f-ckin' dumbass.

Hey Revis, grow the f-ck up, you stupid knob.

I remember last offseason we were mocking Alvin Keels' tweets for wanting to get Leon Washington some big money and they eventually folded, deciding to wait until next this year to get Leon paid. How'd that go?

Leon played, and got hurt. This factors into why Revis is not playing currently.

What is your point?

I have seen all your Tweets to & towards MEvis and I agree with you say SFJ.

That being said, I will make a suggestion to you.

I would stop posting comments about MEvis on Twitter, using profanity, before someone complains about it and you get banned.

Again, I agree with your points and understand your frustration but you are not supposed to tweet using curse words or profanity on Twitter and I am pretty sure it even says so in the user agreement. Twitter doesn't asterisk out the curse words like the board here does.

Just a friendly suggestion.

Leon refused to sign a reasonable deal. Sound familiar?

when mike t negotiated in his office the picture above his desk was Revis shutting down Randy Moss.

if that was a revis tweet it wasn't to the fans it was to the Jets. The Jets play book is nothing. Wait him out. Revis is saying he doesn't care and he's not coming back on their terms. He's coming back on his or not at all.

Player that good that's how they act. Jets fans are used to dealing with scrubs but superstars are different. the Jets have many other star players or potential star players but Revis is the only superstar on this team. He's #1 and there's no close #2. Santonio Holmes could be in that conversation if he wasn't suspended.

Mangold, harris, scott and Jenks are stars and very good players. Brick, Greene, Pace etc these are good players. Sanchez is an enigma. Edwards and Cro I don't really trust.

Revis is their only superstar.

120 million isn't enough to feed his family, how can he buy any car he wants?

MEVI$ has a really big family so he needs a really big vehicle. The guy is a greedy sob and should be made to sit the year and waste it. We do not need him in the clubhouse ruining the heads of the kids on the team. At the end of the year trade him to the worst team in the NFC or the highest bidder! I do not see us as having a need for his type of selfish player. A high first round pick and high second round pick would make us a better team especially if WILSON and CRO perform well.

If SoFlaJets is going to put things in context of how other people are hurting right now, then any holdout is going to look bad, no matter what they're asking. If you are going to take the attitude, "You're turning down X dollars and other people don't even have a job" then the player seemingly looks awful.

Fact is Revis had an amazing year, gives every indication of that he can give us more and he wants to get paid for his new high level of play. It's actually pretty normal in sports to grant the player that wish under such circumstances.

Because of Revis, Rex can revamp the whole defense. Going man-to-man on pass coverage and blitzing most plays would be suicidal for most clubs, but thanks to Revis and the new additions, it looks like we can get it done-and the other teams have to figure out how to stop us.

He's that good. We know it, the club knows it, and much as some people lament the fact, Revis knows it.

Let's get the deal done and start the season.

You thought Keels contract demands were reasonable? WTF man, he wanted to get paid like a feature back. If you consider the demands of both Revis and Washington to be reasonable, then I guess you're OK with overpaying for 5 guys and having half of our team get the minimum. You think that's going to win you a championship?

And yet, most of those players will be looked back upon in history as having a more productive career than Darrelle Revis, who's going to sit out a year in his prime, potentially miss a year via lockout, and hopefully, if he refuses to play, be traded to the Raiders, Lions, or Browns where he can shut down WRs all day and it wont make a bit of difference.

well we had Mr. superstar last year and what did we win? We simply can not afford to pay him 16 ayear and still have a team. What have the raiders won with their superstar CB? Nada! Teams win championships. Superstars make it a bit easier. When Phil Simms went down the Giants turned to a backup and won a Super Bowl. TEAM WIN.

What is your point?

Well, he can't sit out the ENTIRE season if he wants to knock a year off his contract, of the 3 left, so he may want to think about walking away from the huge money he has offered to him, which is what Leon did.
