ESPN: Another storm has developed between Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets. This time, the issue is the offseason conditioning program, which begins April 15.
Even though they may trade him before or during the April 25 draft, the Jets plan to enforce language in the star cornerback’s contract that requires him to participate in the voluntary workouts to collect bonus money, sources said.
John Idzik is playing hardball. In what has easily been the most quiet Jets offseason I can remember, Idzik is taking a patient approach to the Darrelle Revis situation. While I applaud the structure and discipline here (something that has been lacking in the Rex Ryan era)… I really hope Revis shows up in shape and doesn’t dog it. He is recovering from injury. Prospective trade partners will be very interested to hear comments from Jets camp about this workout. If Revis is still far off, his value could drop and after all the drama this offseason, there is no way he signs in NY if ever given an opportunity to be a Free Agent.
We hear that Revis will be in attendance to collect his $3M… but he is not happy about it.
