Contract Issues Upcoming for the Jets?

As the NY Post points out, contacts could become big issues for the Jets in the not so distant future:

According to a highly placed NFL source familiar with the Jets’ thinking, CB Darrelle Revis, C Nick Mangold and LB David Harris will not all get new contracts in 2010. “Those other three guys won’t get signed this year,” the source told The Post, referring to Revis, Mangold and Harris. “There’s no way that can happen. It’s not realistic.” On the heels of the six year, $60 million extension this week given to left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, who had two years remaining on his original contract, Revis, Mangold and Harris all want new contracts before camp begins. In the case of at least Revis and possibly Mangold’s, too, you can add or else to the end of the previous sentence, because Revis has talked openly about a possible training camp holdout and Mangold has dropped hints. This is where the Leon Washington factor has taken a stronghold inside the Jets’ locker room after he never got the new contract he wanted entering last season, then suffered a compound leg fracture and was traded away for a low draft pick on draft day, leaving him with no financial security. After seeing what happened to Washington, players are wary of that happening to them.
