I've given my take on the Revis situation, but one thing to add is that he won't be losing any sleep if fans turn on him like they did in 2010, speaking to Gary Meyers of the NY Daily News, Revis said:

"I don’t know if you looked at my Twitter," he told Myers. "I was getting death threats and everything. I’m getting stuff now on Twitter."

Pro Football Talk reported that Revis recently responded to one negative tweet from a fan by responding, "shut up".

Meyers adds:

As part of the contract, if he holds out, the Jets can extend the deal three years at modest numbers. If Revis plays out the contract, the Jets can’t franchise him in 2014. That means they would have to renegotiate next year because there is no way they will let him become an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season. The gamble of waiting for Revis, of course, is the fear of injury. But he is fearless when it comes to challenging the Jets. "I’m a corporation, too,"

I'm not looking forward to another summer of this, that's for sure.
