Per ESPN New York's Rich Cimini in this Tweet:
If you're coming to Cortland Mon for first practice, hoping to see Darrelle Revis, you could be disappointed. Looking like a holdout.
I try not to report on little Tweets such as these, things that we haven't seen reported on or confirmed elsewhere. However, it certainly seems logical that a holdout could be in the works. Let's look at the events that have transpired in the last 36 hours.
Darrelle Revis Weekend Timeline:
- Friday PM --- Reports citing Revis' camp supposedly met with Jets' team officials.
- Saturday early afternoon --- Reports citing any talks that had happened, were now over.
- Saturday evening - Cimini sends this Tweet about Revis possibly holding out.
Still, let's keep in mind Revis doesn't have a ton of bargaining chips, being that he will be fined $16,000 for each day he holds out --- which is stated in his contract.
First off, this is pure speculation, and I hope I'm wrong.
However, in my opinion, it seems as if Revis met with team officials sometime in the 24-hour period between Friday and Saturday, no deal was reached, and Revis now plans to hold out. While we don't know for sure, it's safe to say the Jets were looking to offer a band aid or short-term extension, while Revis' camp was looking for a long-term deal, as David reported yesterday.
I hope to see him out there on Monday, but after the events that have taken place, I'm not too sure.
What do you think, GGN?
