All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis is looking to be one of the highest paid players in football.
National Football Post's Michael Lombardi reports that Revis and agent Neil Schwartz will be looking for a deal upwards of $20 million/year.
It should be noted that the source of the original information is unknown. The article by Lombardi cites ".... and the word I'm hearing is that..." . For what it's worth, NFP has taken more of a "sensational" approach to covering football recently. GGN is not challenging the validity of this article, we're just saying that the source is unknown and this tidbit should be taken with a grain of salt.
This would make Revis the highest paid CB in the history. Raiders' CB Asomugha currently holds that title, as he earned himself a 3-year contract worth $45.3 million last season. Could that be one of the contributing factors as to why Revis wants to be paid so much? The top-rated CB in the NFL surely deserves top-notch money.... right?
