Darrelle Revis tried to turn down holdout speculation today.


Revis said "let's quit talking about holding out," claiming his focus is on the team. Asked point-blank if he's happy with his current contract, which is playing him $7.5 million this season, Revis replied: "Yeah, I'm cool. I signed it two years ago. I'm not unhappy about nothing."

That is not much of a denial, but that is not the key. The Jets now have plenty of time to lock him up for the long haul. The worst case scenario here would not be a holdout. It would be Revis playing out his contract and then hitting the free agent market in two years. They would likely lose him for nothing other than a compensatory pick. It is time for the Jets to sit down and get something done to keep the best defensive player in the league in green and white through the prime of his career.
