As ESPN's Rich Cimini pointed out, the contractual Band-Aid that Revis got prior to the 2010 season needs to be addressed before we see another holdout.
Revis deserves nothing less than to be the highest-paid defender in football, which will cost quite a lot of money after looking at what Mario Williams got from the Bills. Williams will get an average of $16 million per season, and you can bet Revis thinks he is worth at least that much.
Revis averaged $16 million in salary over the past two years, but his compensation drops to $7.5 million in 2012 and just $6 million in 2013. I have a hard time believing he's willing to play in 2013 for that kind of cash.
On top of that, there is a clause in Revis' contract that prevents the Jets from using the franchise tag on him.
The sooner the Jets can lock up Revis for the rest of his career, the better. Next year, some other stud defender is only going to drive up the price. I don't expect the Jets to do anything with Revis' deal until after this season, but be prepared for yet another standoff between Revis' camp and GM Mike Tannenbaum next summer.
