GOOD! I'm sick of these people renegotiating their contracts. You signed the original contract...stick to it until the contract runs out, then you can ask for a new contract. F-king ingrates!!!

unfortunatley the jets structured the contract to be negotiated at 3 years. Now they don't want to live up to their verbal contract. Sad.

Verbal contract?! Never sign a contract without a lawyer, and any lawyer worth their salt would never have a client sign anything that depended on a verbal contract... Also since neither you or I were there, how can you even say there was any verbal agreement on the part of the principals...

Currently, Revis is the seventh highest payed cornerback on the Jets roster. Yes, you may blink now. How does this happen? How does the undisputed number one cornerback in the NFL sit by and watch six teammates inferior to him by far out earn him? The NFL model is simply horrible. For instance, let's imagine that Revis were not living up to the million per year contract he signed as a rookie...the Jets could cut him. Goodbye Revis Island! All that they would be responsible for would be the signing bonus. So spare me please the sanctimony about he signed a contract and he should honor it. All signing a contract means is that IF he chooses to play football...he has to play for the Jets. If he does not want to play then that is his choice. Frankly, there is no way I would play without being at least the second highest paid cornerback in the NFL. The man is THAT good. He should be compensated accordingly. If the Jets don't think so...that is their right. However, it is also HIS right not to play for them.

Oh yea....Jerome!! You have no idea who you are talking to...so don't make assumptions. EVERYONE reads these blogs, including athletes, teammates, and the famlies. SO again...don't make ASSumptions. The verbal contract I'm referring to is their statements publicly and privately about making Revis the face of the Jets and doing whatever they have to do to make him a Jet for life. He had an attorney and his contract reads "negotiable" at year 3. Now the Jets are being unreasonable in the negotiations. Say whatever you want with your limited knowledge. The NFL cares about the NFL not the players. Revis is being WISE. You haven't a clue what the NFL does to players after they get hurt or their career ends. It's inhumane.

You totally do not get what I'm saying Jerome!!!!!!.Revis signed a contract with an attorney. The contract says it is renogitiable at year 3. Then the Jets began to "VERBALIZE" their intentions to make REVIS the face of the JETS and do ALL THEY CAN to make him a JET for LIFE!!! That is the verbal contract I'm referring to.

I think Darrelle Revis can do what he wants, also is not fair to charge so much money just for missing practice. Although on the other hand, he can afford it since he gets paid millions a year! Go NY Jets!!
