A Compromise for Revis and the Jets

NYJetsCap.com recently wrote an article about the real market value for Darrelle Revis. They go into a lot of detail and I highly recommend you read the entire article, but I posted the conclusion below:

Im sure more details of the negotiations will be leaked to the public in the coming days to see just how far apart the two sides are, but after a closer look at the other contracts on the market and considering Revis’ current contract situation a 6 year $67.5 million dollar deal seems like a fair compromise for both sides. The Jets get Revis as a somewhat reasonable cap charge for the next 4 years. Revis becomes the highest paid corner in the NFL and will be in line for another big contract either with the Jets or another team before he turns the wrong side of 30. It’s a good deal for both sides. If Revis wants a bigger contract he will have to play out the next two seasons and see what 2012 holds for him.

He certainly makes a great argument in developing the contract, but in reality I think it’s wishful thinking.

From what we’ve heard from Revis, he’s not accepting this deal. He’s looking for Asomugha money and this deal pays him just over $11 million annually and not even $31 million in the first three years. That number is way short of $15.2 million annually Asomugha is making and doesn’t come close to the $45.2 million Asomugha makes in the first three years.

In a perfect world, Revis accepts this contract. However, i wouldn’t be crossing my fingers.
