Report: Revis Will Be in Camp

New, comments

Contrary to rumors from yesterday, Michael Lombardi says to expect Darrelle Revis in training camp.

Revis has plenty of incentive to report.

He has the option to void his current contract at the end of the 2010 season, but the Jets have the right to buy back the remaining two years at $20 million, fully guaranteed.

If Revis were to miss any mandatory time due to a holdout, however, he might lose the guranteed portion of the contract. He would then be under contract for two more years, at $5 million in 2011 and $15 million in 2012. That potential guarantee is something he would not want to risk.

 

This may change in the future, but Darrelle holds very few cards at this point.

I wouldn't be worried even if he did sit out camp, though. He missed a ton of camp before his rookie year and was extremely effective from the outset that year. It's relatively easier to step right in at a reaction position like corner than other spots on the field.
