Darrelle Revis Contract Conflict: A Reasonable Solution

New, comments

NYDN's Manish Mehta touches on a resolution which could allow the Revis camp and Jets FO to come to a short-term agreement, at least until the end of the 2010-11 season.

One possible scenario may be giving Revis somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 million this season -- or
about $6 million less than Nnamdi Asomugha’s 2010 salary -- while keeping the provision of $20 million in guarantees for 2011 and 2012.


In essence, that would give Revis $30 million guaranteed and end the impasse.


Obviously a good short-term solution to the problem, but the issue remains that it's just setting up for a FO nightmare in 2011 -2012 if the NFL goes back to a cap, which is likely.

Still, it seems like a fair solution for both parties, as the Jets would be getting good value only having to pay him $10 million this season, and the Revis camp would be happy in receiving the guaranteed money (security) they've sought after. It would also satisfy the 30 percent rule (for now), which has been another deterrent from the NFL in closing this deal.
