Good For Him: Darrelle Revis Holdout Saga, Part 1

Zach Berger@theZachBergerCorrespondent IJune 4, 2010

Thursday, June 3rd marked the first day of Darrelle Revis' holdout during this offseason. It is very simple: he wants the most money of anyone at his position. He wants a bigger contract than Nnamdi Asomugha. The Jets promised him that they would do that.

If he is holding out and complaining about the contract negotiations, that clearly means that the team isn't keeping its word. For that reason, I want to start this post by commending Mr. Revis for holding out. He deserves the biggest contract of anyone at the cornerback position, and everyone knows that. If he feels like he is getting shafted by the team and that the organization is ripping him off, then he should respond with a threat of some sort.

Holding out sends the message that he is unhappy with the talks he and his agent are having with the team. That is exactly the message that he wants to send, and he is getting that message across. This should definitely make things interesting.

You may have noticed that I've been posting less and less as the offseason has become more and more boring. It has been very quiet over the last few weeks, especially for the Jets. Now we have some more excitement in the form of a holdout.

Revis will now join Chris Johnson as players who are consistently mentioned as two of the best at their positions who aren't making enough money. Revis will make $1 million next... (read the rest on Jets Jive - click the link below)
