    What kind of a contract is going to wash up ashore there? And when?

    It won't be any less than Nnamdi Asomugha's.

    And even though I think this holding out shit is such a bitch ass move, the Jets better get on it.

    Check out his current contract details:

    Details Out on Darrelle Revis’ Contract | thejetsblog.com

    So he would be due $4 mil this season, $5 mil next season, then anywhere from $9-15 mil the following year. Assuming he is crushing the point system they set in place that's $24 mil over the next 3 years.

    I got a feeling he wants 5yrs $100 mil.

    I could have sworn I saw on SC the other day they said he's due only 1 mil this year. I might be wrong though.

    But 100 mil for a CB is ridiculous. As great as Revis is, his ass can walk.

    Yeah here it is:

    Sources: New York Jets resume talks with Darrelle Revis - ESPN New York

    He's apparently asking for 16.5/yr

    The Jets are making a reasonable offer at 12, but I don't get the no guaranteed money. At the very least, the guy deserves something guaranteed.

    I think what you heard was they offered him a short term deal that would pay him another $1 mil this season.

    I agree 100 mil is nutty but this guy's head has been crazy inflated the last year ... he could very well be asking for that. Might as well as high as possible to start. He wont get it but I still think what he does get is going to be an impressive number.

    Must be nice having to negotiate heatedly between 12 million a year and 16.5 :rolleyes:

    Filthy rich, or just a little bit more filthy rich :lol:

    I'll never understand it.

    I imagine it must be like having a guaranteed winning lottery ticket and the power to alter the payout.

    They should do it like lotteries, where the player can pick full cash payout or annuity. If they pick cash payout they get significantly less, but if they pick annuity they're bound by injury and performance clauses.

    So 12 mil/5 years he can take the 60 now and be done with it, or 16.5 and he has to stay healthy and perform to standards over those 5 years to make the whole 82.5
