Darrelle Revis’s recent contract dispute with the New York Jets is expected to carry on for quite sometime until he or the Jets organization decides to budge. I do understand Revis’s point but his terms are ridiculous. Revis one of the best corners in the league wants a contract that will make him the highest paid cornerback in the league, people believe the numbers to be about $16 million a year. While Revis is one of the best he is not the best, Revis Island and all the un-explained media coverage definitely added to his self-believed worth.
Now as a Jet fan I have to worry about the organization not being able to sign their other notable free agents including Nick Mangold and others. If you ask me I think Revis needs to stop worrying about the money and play. I do not know the exact numbers being discussed but if its for example $13 million a year vs. $16 million he really needs to take a step back and look at the fact that he is already making a ridiculous salary while others in the country cannot find minimum wage jobs!
