Jets Close to Deal with Revis

New, comments

Over the last month, there have been many "reports" about the Revis contract impasse ending.

None of them have proven to be true.

However, a weird series of events have come about in the last six hours, so let's look at a timeline which highlights them all, most of them through Tweets. 

Timeline of Tweets


  1. Manish Tweeted

    BREAKING: Rex Ryan & Revis met in Fla this weekend 2discuss contract impasse. No resolution yet. But lines of communication open #jets #nfl

  2. "Incarcerated Bob," a member of 660 FAN's Boomer and Carlton's radio show staff, Tweeted the following:

    **BREAKING NEWS** NY Jets are close to finalizing a new contract deal with Darrelle Revis . Jets freed up cap space for guaranteed money

    **BREAKING NEWS** 3 sources / 1 close to Revis states this deal is in place & should be wrapped up before Thursday. Lawyers will finalize it

3.       Charity Washington, Leon Washington's wife, Tweeted the following. Remember, Leon was a close               friend to Revis:

      Well at the end of the day u Jet fans will be                   very happy VERY soon :)

Also, Tony Richardson was released earlier today, just as Coles was, in an obvious cost-cutting move in which the Jets will try to sign both AFTER week 1 to save money. It really to seemed as if there was a reason as to T-Rich was spontaneously released, after Rex has been saying for weeks that there was a spot for him on this team.

Through all of these reports, you all know I'm the last person to sit around and report them all, I questioned the validity of most of them. Sure, "Incarcerated Bob" may not be a credible source, but it seems as if a lot of pieces are falling into place. 

For the first time, I'm going to go on record saying I do believe these reports, and that by Thursday night, before the Vikings and Saints kick off the 2010-11 season, a Darrelle Revis deal will most likely be in place.
