Some positive news this morning for Jets fans all around the world, an anonymous source who has knowledge of the situation has confirmed that Revis expects to meet up with his teammates in Cortland on Thursday and will not hold out for the 2nd time in three off-seasons:

A person familiar with the decision said the New York Jets' All-Pro cornerback expects to report with the rest of his teammates next Thursday in Cortland, N.Y., rather than hold out in a contract dispute for the second time in three summers.

Over the last two years of his new contract, Revis has been paid $32.5 million and is due to make $13.5 million per season over the next two years. Not bad for 16 games a year plus change (hopefully).

The bottom line is that the Jets will need to address Revis's contract, either this season or next off-season. They can't and won't let him hit the open market. Remember under the conditions of the 4 year contract he signed two years ago, he can not be franchised by the Jets.

I'm delighted that he is going to show, we are quietly moving towards a stress and drama free preparation to the new season. The Jets will pay Revis, and this is a good team decision by Revis too. Everyone is happy.
