Jets, Revis Agree—No. 24 Expected to Sign Today

Posted by Eric Allen on September 6, 2010 – 6:37 am

The Jets agreed to terms with CB Darrelle Revis early this morning.

“This is an intermediate step to what we hope will be an entire career of Darrelle as a Jet, for him to retire as a Jet and for him to hopefully go to the Hall of Fame as a Jet,” said GM Mike Tannenbaum.

Revis is expected to be in New Jersey today to sign his four-year deal.

“I think it’s a great deal for Darrelle and it’s responsible for the club,” Mr. T. said.  “So from that standpoint, it’s a win-win.”

“I’m coming home baby!!! Revis Island,” Revis said on his Twitter account. “Let’s Go.”

During a 1 a.m. conference call, Tannenbaum said Rex Ryan and owner Woody Johnson visited Revis, Darrelle’s mother, and Darrelle’s uncle, Sean Gilbert, over the weekend in South Florida.

“I really wasn’t optimistic, I really wasn’t,” Tannenbaum said. “It was a hard set of dynamics. I’m optimistic by nature, but gosh, this was really hard. There was a lot of heavy lifting. This honestly and truly was really, really hard.”

We’ll publish the entire Tannenbaum conference call transcript later this morning as well as possibly the audio file.  The Jets are practicing today so we’ll have plenty of reaction from Florham Park.

    Okay, so Revis signs for 7 years, with an opt-out clause after 4. So if he gets in shape overnight, focuses on the team, and doesn’t try to opt out after 2, great, all is forgiven…almost. We’ve spent the entire summer playing Wilson and Lowery out of position and Cromartie on the wrong side of his position. We haven’t tried Wilson returning punts ’cause we thought he’d be starting at CB. And did we actually cut any RBs ’cause we thought we had to keep McKnight active ’cause he was the guy we mostly used to return punts? From Mr. T’s premature and amateurish gushing to rework Revis’ deal to Rex’s reckless over-praising of Revis to Revis’ bizarre attitude throughout, this may have been the most embarrassingly self-destructive episode in Jets history. Did Revis’ agents finally get the message, from him and Jackson, that they really want to play this year? And can those agents seriously say that Revis had to miss the entire pre-season to get this deal? As Frank Zappa so famously said, “They say the essential element in the universe is hydrogen, but I think it’s stupidity.”

    Here’s what I mean when I say we never really know all that much of what’s going on. So Rex looks like a fool for insisting on “Hard Knocks” on keeping T-Rich just days before the Jets cut him. Did Rex really not know that there was the potential for things like this when he signed on for “HK”? Or did he ever even sign on for “HK”? Was it something that was imposed on him by Mr. T or Woody or both, and then Rex couldn’t very well publicly say he was against it? Whatever the real story behind the scenes, this is exactly the kind of distraction that Rex’s team, which has existed for one year and had one good year, didn’t need at all. Of course, HBO must be thrilled now that the last “HK” episode featuring Revis’ return will be one of highest-rated sports shows in cable history. I guess they figure we’re into scandal and sleaze above all, thanks to the rest of the media, and that just rooting for your favorite team to have fun and win is hopelessly old-fashioned.

    Happy Labor Day Jets Nation. It’s. Beautiful morning in New York and Darelle is coming home! I imagine Brian Jackson moves to the practice squad to make room for Revis. Glad we are keeping Jackson as he showed some big time cover potential in the Eagles game and to me seems sharper than Coleman who always seems to get burned at the most critical moments.I can never forgive Coleman for that badly timed jump that lead to our Colts beat down in the second half, The image is burned in my brain. Thank god Revis is back and long live Revis Island!

    Thanks for this early morning fix Eric. Do you sleep on holidays? I have only been waiting for this news since mid july and and relieved it finally arrived. One player doesn’t make a team but you can’t start a season without your best player on the field and certainly not a season with Super Bowl aspirations.

    Alright finally we can get down to the business of becoming the best defense in existence. Only question, is Revis in good enough football shape to start playing in Monday’s opener?

This won’t be Sept. ’99 (Blown achilles), Nov.-Dec. ’86 (Start 10-1, lose last 5), the entire Kotite era, the day Peyton decided to return for his senior year, the second half of Herm’s disaster. It won’t be ANY of those things. THIS IS THE SEASON!! THAT WAS THEIR TIME!! THIS IS OUR TIME!! There’s plenty of room, so jump on the bandwagon now. You won’t be disappointed!!!

    Everyone is happy to have Revis return, as was I when I heard it @ 5am on TV. However, i’m looking at what this means for the rest of the team. Wilson played amazingly well @ CB, but will now have mostly Nickel duties. Did he get enough practice there? I thought the extra play time for Lowry was great, but Revis now has to get in game shape for a tough 3 teams to start our season.

    I know it has nothing to do w/ Revis, but did we have to cut Washington and T-Rich? Clowney had flashes of brilliance, but he was still someone, in my opinion, who could’ve improved and helped this franchise out. I’m all Super Bowl or bust, but being a Jets fans for over 2 decades has made me cautious as to how excited I can get before the season starts.

    1. McKnight — Not cut out to be NFL player, cut our losses sooner than later.
    2. P. Turner — Jury is still out, but coles would be better than turner.
    3. Bring T-Rich back for locker room leadership.
    4. Coleman — Please release him, there has to be anyone better on the market.
    5. Lowrey — Needs to go also — see above

    While I am thrilled that Revis is back, he could have worked through the process ala Mangold. Revis should seriously think about releasing his “agents” who could not get the job done and caused this whole situation to get out of hand. Revis in the end did not get what he wanted or hoped to get. To the Jets credit they held the line fiscally but extended themselves by reaching out to Revis in a face to face meeting. While Revis did get guaranteed money and will be tied to the Jets for the next 7 years, I’m not sure this same scenario will not play out again in 3 more years. Rex Ryan and Woody Johnson showed their willingness to do whatever it took to get their star player back and it counts for something in this league. Rex is every players dream coach, friend and confidant. I hope he’s here for 20 more years. Every player in the league will consider the Jets just because of him. To Woody Johnson’s credit, he is a great humanitarian and human being who cares about people. If only we all had employers like him.

    You have to wonder what is going on here. You can’t tell me Revis could not have been signed to this same contract a month ago. Now we have to hope he doesn’t get hurt since he will not be in game shape…Rex better be careful. Cutting T Rich is incredibly stupid the team is already suffering from a leadership vacuum who is going to mentor “The Terminator”? They are putting a lot of pressure on this kid since the running game is EVERYTHING for this offense. The passing game is going to be a joke until Holmes comes back and even then it will be marginal. In essence they cut T-Rich to sign Turner who has never caught a pass in the NFL…a bust for the Dolphins. Great move guys to yet again save a few bucks this is pathetic. Hard Knocks has shown how incrediblly cheap the organization is with it’s players while spending stupid money on a stadium that has now put the franchise in dire financial straits. Should have kept the old stadium and spent the money on the product that goes on the field.

    Im not willing to praise or thank someone who walked out on his teammates and fans with 3 years remaining on his contract. I’ve been a fan since 1969 and suffered just as much as anyone else out there. I wont deny the Jets are a better team with him, and that he is one of the best defensive players in the game today, but come on, where is the honor? This does nothing but reward selfishness and will set a precedent for others to follow. What have we become as a society? Im sure I’ll get some flack for writing this but after seeing all the “thank you” posts I felt I had to put my thoughts out there. I’d like to think he got some bad advice that just steam rolled to a deadlock rather than think he held everyone hostage 9while under contract which he willfully signed) for his own personal gain. No thanks here…

    Frank, I don’t think the Jets front office is perfect but if $32 mil in guaranteed money makes them cheap, where do I sign up to work for them? Totally agree with you on how unnecessary Revis’ holdout was, though. stillwayne1, I’m not sure about all the guys the Jets have let go, Feely, for instance. But I think our problem for many years has been giving up on young guys too soon and holding onto old guys too long. I’m glad Clowney got the time he did and no more and I’m glad they had the guts to roll the dice on Slauson at LG, especially after the way Faneca couldn’t pass block last year. As for TJ. watch the tape of him on KC, the three guys ahead of him are making him look sick. You wanna talk about a guy getting treatment he doesn’t deserve, so far this year that’s TJ. Already looks like they’ll let him go next year and from the way LT looks so far, I bet that isn’t the case with him on the Jets. charliejet, always remember what Peter Gabriel said so emphatically on his second solo album: “I need PERSPECTIVE!”

    Thanks for letting me off the hook on Clowney and Jones, GaryC, and I’m actually glad the Revis deal is 7 years with a review at 4, because the only thing more ridiculous than giving him $16 mil a year is giving him that for TEN YEARS! GIL, that’s good to hear about T-Rich knowing about getting let go, I understand making difficult cuts but not doing it in a disrespectful way. If we can get him back for less money it certainly makes sense, since he’s implied that this is his last year and the future is Conner. Best line of the day, russ!

    Revis really stinks for listening to his uncle and agents and holding out the whole preseason. It’s disrupted progress for the whole defense and special teams. I give lots of credit to Mr Tannenbaum and Johnson for not caving in to his demands for so long! Unfortunately they need Revis there and had to give him enough to keep his whining mouth shut! I’m kinda bummed about Richardson being cut and hope he’s back soon! Too bad Football is a business… It ruins alot for the fans. I would have liked to see the NY Jets go all the way without Mr Island. Oh well. Welcome back DR. Now put your money where your mouth is. Let’s Go Jets!

    Here we go again. Why do I have to continuously educate you all on the facts. First of all, the details of the contract are that Revis is making the $32 over the first two years. So he actually did get his $16 million per year. Secondly, the hold up for the contract negotiation was ALWAYS the guaranteed money, not the amount her was receiving over 10 years or per year. If the Jets had offered a decent amount of guaranteed money from the beginning, the deal would have been done a long time ago.

    And to Nick Avvento- You stated “where is the honor” and “this does nothing but reward selfishness and will set a precedent for others to follow.” If more NFL players stood up for themselves, we wouldn’t have holdouts. These players are passed around like pieces of meat, traded, cut or just darn right thrown out. Their contracts aren’t guaranteed so they actually don’t have any other leverage other than to hold out. They need to rally around and confront the Players Association and fight for guaranteed contracts. It’s not selfishness, it’s business!

    By far one of the best days of my die hard jets fan life. Pace comes back quick we might really be talking all-time great defense. Can’t wait for Monday. Would love to see Rex pregame speech before he plays his old team Monday. Go gang green

    @Jets Fan Since ’64 Tom– I don’t think that giving Wilson all this time with the first team was a bad thing, If anything it’s good for a number of reasons, one an excelled jump into the positions he will eventually play, and it stops him from taking the returns which sometimes ends horrible. Let McKnight take them, it seems to be the one thing he is showing true improvement in. It is still a toss up for the better draft pick this year because Conner is a machine. Too bad for T-Rich though I really liked him.

    I agree with jet fan since 64, we have a defensive backfield that has been ‘practicing’ out of position. Is this good for Wilson? Is it an easier adjustment going from outside to nickel? My concerns, moving forward, are that the Jets are looking to sign / re-sign people after game 1 and looking for Pace and Holmes to return in games 5 and/or 6. Are we going to be ready for GAME 1 ???

    great job.looks like rex realy pushed for it to happen.this signing does more for the team than bringing back the best player..for now this is revis team he is the leader and the soul of this team,all other problems go away now.locker room not a issue this allows the t rich release to settle in.this could be a great defense .this allows good players to be great average players to be good.the sky is the limit.on offense just run, run, run, and then run some more.

    Unbelievable. As he says, i need to feed my family(ha-ha). It still keeps me wondering if somebody else signs for more next year, is he going to hold out for more. A CONTRACT SHOULD BE HONORED. If he stinks from day one, would he offer the money back. I don”t think so. I think it”s a disgrace that he is obviously getting away with breaking a contract, but let”s see what happens????? When he gets burned for 200 YARDS against some real receivers that are in the division—– WHAT WILL HE SAY THEN???

    This is a huge win for both the Jets and Revis and I say good for the both of you. Now let’s get back to the game. I agree, the coaching staff will need to keep an eye on Revis since he has not practiced for the past month. He is not yet in game shape so the coaching staff may need to be careful he does not get injured. The Jets will be real strong with their two CB’s Revis and Cromartie so passing against this team is going to be fun to watch. The Jets now have a year to go before their other contratc problem. The team is now in great shape for a run to the SB and I can’t wait to watch what happens this year with this team. It’s going to be a great run!

    Sorry, I guess I am one of the few who does not like this deal. He held out for a long term deal and then said he was too good for it. Too bad, if he tanks it this year will he allow the Jets to renegotiate the deal for some back. Revis is about the money and nothing else, he is not a team player. I guess he will arrive in playing shape and ready to go. Woody and Mike T you blew it, now you set a precedent for any other Prima dona who you sign to hold out. You should have used the money to play for players who really wanted to play and not those who will not honor the deal they signed. Maybe he will hold out again next year and then what – will you cave in again. Bad move for sure. I am sure he will play half hearted now as he has all the money he needs for life. Oops, one fake injury and he never plays and walks away with $32 million. YES, I feel he is low enough to do that.

    It is about time that cooler heads prevailed. While both sides were equally stubborn in their refusal to give in, that is all in the past. In the end, both sides can claim a victory and hopefully both have learned a valuable lesson.

    Ridiculous…. this is a one yr extension at 11million with the chance to make some more. clearly, its a one yr extension, though, no matter how you spin it. This took 7 months? I have to tell you, revis’ agents are perhaps 2 of the most petulant, and immovable agents in the sport, They have no concept of reality and ruined Vincent Jax season this year. (well, he is accountable himself and they DO work 4 him, but I don’t think these athletes realize this). They were problems 2 Tannenbaum when it came to Baker and Kendall. They were equally problematic when it came to negotiating Revis innitital contract and once again, THEY WERE A POROBLEM!!!!!!!! THEY NEED TO REALLY THINK ABOUT HOW THEY OPERATE. IT’S NOT AS IF THEY HAVE AN EXPLOSIVE CLASS OF PLAYERS THAT THEY REP! THEY LUCKED OUT W/REVIS AND THE REST OF THEM ARE HAS BEENS WHO NEVER WERE!

    Exactly, dougmc, that’s what I think they’ll do to make room for Holmes and Revis, can’t see risking losing Kroul at this point. tkgilb, if you believe football players should get more and more guaranteed money, most of what you say holds up. If you think the season should stay at 16 games, ticket prices should be much lower, pre-season game tickets should be no more than half-price, player contracts should be shorter and cheaper, advertising should be reduced, and athletes in general should be more grateful for what they’re getting paid, not so much. I’ll cut Revis some slack for not going down the same road as his uncle but he better not pull this stuff again. And he better work his butt off with the DBs and on behalf of the whole team if he ever wants to be called a leader.

    Since I gave up on Revis a month or so ago, as a person and team player, I’d have to say that I consider having him back on the team to be the lesser of two evils. Yes, it SHOULD be easier to win games with him, but I’d almost rather have seen the team fight through his absence than be complacent because of his presence.

    All of this “protect the poor athlete” and “what happens if they get hurt” crap really shouldn’t enter into any of these conversations. That’s what disability insurance is for, and if you want to gamble and NOT invest in the insurance, it’s your call.

    If they all got paid per-game or by percentage of total snap count (kinda like the rest of the employed world), a lot of this guarantee talk could go out the window. Like Mike T told Clemens whan he asked “What about next year, if I accept this pay cut?”: “Your contract will be up, and your worth next year will be determined by the market.” If a player is the best at his position, he wouldn’t have to worry about playing time.

    As for Schwartz and Feinsod, I agree John A… they are a blight on the reputation of agents everywhere.

    MJV, look at it like it says in the Tao Te Ching: “The Master dwells in reality and lets all illusions go.” Who cares if some of what goes on in pro sports makes no sense? (at least to men and women of good conscience, honor, and awareness). You can still watch Jets football and enjoy it, knowing that there will always be a New Jersey, er, New York Jets. Hopefully at least some of your gratification is being around to watch all this stuff and not get taken in by it. As a friend of mine who almost got drafted by the NFL says, quoting his grandmother, “The Devil wants you to be like him.” (Hey, Cromartie will like that one!) Or to put it another way, “The Master fulfills her own obligations and corrects her own mistakes. She does what she needs to do and demands nothing of others.” And give me your review of Monty’s in Punta Gorda after you drive over there for some good Italian food! If my mom and dad were still alive and living there, I’d drive you over there myself next time I came to visit.

    Mike Jet Vet – While you indicate somewhat in your post that you may be and older gentleman, I have to write my comment with “all due respect”. I am sorry you feel that the Jets paid Revis blackmail money or that there will be negative repercussions as a result of his holdout. But more and more NFL players need to stand up to these franchises and demand contracts that reflect the work that they do. These deals are a blatant rip-offs and then fans wanna cry when a player believes he deserves more and doesn’t allow the franchise to treat him like a piece of meat.

    Revis is a stand-up guy and his uncle too. I can’t conceive of anyone’s uncle advising his nephew to do something that will hurt him. And as far as Neil and Jonathan are concerned. If Revis isn’t getting paid, neither are they. Why would they not work as hard as they can to get a deal done. That’s just ludacris!! I think maybe some of you who comment on these blogs need to rethink what you’re saying before you post it guys. C’mon be a man about it!!

    Hey tkgilb, that’s classy of you to show your respect to MJV and we’re all glad, albeit with some grumbling, that Revis is back. But there’s more than a little naivete in your post. First of all, the NFL is one of those showbiz-type lotteries where if you’re lucky enough to get in, you have a shot to make more money in a few years than most folks would see in several lifetimes. So you can hardly expect owners not to play hardball, especially when no player in history has ever given back money for “underplaying his contract.” As for not being able to “conceive of anyone’s uncle advising his nephew to do something that will hurt him” — whoa, have you never heard of, say, dysfunctional families? Child abuse? Tell you what you do: Start by reading Freud’s Standard Edition, then six or seven of the leading psychoanalytic figures since him, maybe Jung, Rogers, Donald Winnicott, Thomas Szasz, Jacques Lacan, and Alice Miller. In this way you’ll be introduced to notions of unconscious behavior, early childhood influences, and all kinds of other things that will suggest to you that Gilbert may have had much more than Revis’ best interests at heart. “Try to learn instead of burn, hear what I say” — Jimi Hendrix, “House Burning Down,” from ELECTRIC LADYLAND.

    Ok..so he signed. What makes us think he is going to honor this contract. Yes, he can play his position as well as anyone in the league…BUT… He is not worth the millions he is getting paid. There isn’t a football player on the planet worth millions. That is what is wrong with this sport. These guys make way too much cash. I would have run his but off and let Taylor play…the kid has the desire and not the price tag. I for one don’t care to buy a Super Bowl…does anyone else?

    64Tom, I guess I was right. “REVIS” is not going anywhere. As you know from m y previous posts in other spots I was against a REVIS trade. The only way I would have agreed with trading him is if we obtainede a 1st round and 2nd rounders this year and that was not going to happen. My belief knowing he is ahead of schedule on his rehab REVIS will come back stronger and earn his money this year. I am happy the REVIS drama is over. The draft is right around the corner and I am looking forward to see who IDZIK and MM has their eyes on in this draft… RANDY GREAT POST…..
