Revis and Jets finally make a deal
1 week before the opener, 32 mil guarenteed. top players always get what they want lol
Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets agreed to a new contract Sunday night, ending the All-Pro cornerback's holdout one week before the season opener.
The team announced the agreement in principle early Monday morning, but they didn't release contract terms. However, The New York Daily News cited a league source in reporting that Revis received a seven-year deal that can be voided to a four-year, $46 million pact with $32 million guaranteed.
Revis was flying from his home in South Florida to New Jersey on Monday, and meeting with the team, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.
The contract could be signed as early as Monday, getting Revis back on the field in time for the opener next Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens at home.
Revis, who didn't make public statements about the negotiations since minicamp in June, used his Twitter account to thank his family and agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod.
"To my family, neil, & john I love u guys I'm comin home baby!!!" Revis wrote. "Revis Island LET'S GO."
