The parties spoke in the last 24 hours for the first time since before mini-camp to try to find a solution for the All-Pro cornerback’s contract impasse.
The two will probably be looking for some middle-ground and a short-term fix, most likely in the form of some guaranteed money --- although Revis' camp will be looking to have the superstar CB locked up for a long-term deal with big money involved.
Remember, Revis is due to make only $1 million in 2010, the fourth year of his six-year rookie contract.
Was having a discussion on Twitter last night with some Jets fans, discussing this tweet from Revis' manager, GeigerGeiger's twitter:
Laying off twitter for a couple days, hope everything works out!
From that tweet we discerned that there was a good chance a Revis deal was in the works before training camp was to begin, and sure enough, BOOM.
D'Brickashaw Ferguson got paid...... Rex and Mike T. got paid....... with veterans to report to training camp in Cortland in just 48 hours, will Darrelle Revis be next? An end to this whole impasse seems imminent.
