The contract impasse continues, even after Tim Cowlishaw reported yesterday that Revis' camp and Jets' front office were to agree to a deal on Wednesday.
As it stands, it seems like that "report" is carrying less and less validity.
Newsday is reporting the Jets reportedly offered up to $122M/10 years to Revis. However, the All-Pro CB is looking for something in the ballpark of $162M/10 years.
So two weeks ago, we were at $120M vs $160M... we are now looking at $122M vs $162M.
On the surface, it doesn't look like much progress is being made here and that both sides are still standing firm. I have to question Tim Cowlishaw and his reports from yesterday as my co-writers did last night, but we'll see when Wednesday rolls around.
As bad as we need him out there, $162M does seem a bit ridiculous. Peyton Manning's current deal is only worth 7 years/$98M... is Revis more valuable to this team than Peyton is to his?
