Heading into the 2012 season, will New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis hold out for a new contract? (Credit: AP Photo/Bill Kostroun)
In the middle of June this year, Darrelle Revis was refusing to answer whether or not he would be at the Jets training camp. With the Jets’ veterans set to report to camp in ten days, we still do not know whether or not Revis will be there.
Revis is looking for a raise heading into the 2012 season and without one, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen believes he will not show up to training camp.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Revis’s status for 2012 has been a question almost from the day he ended his previous holdout and signed his current contract in 2010. That four-year contract was structured to pay Revis most of the money over the first two years of the deal, and Revis said that if he kept playing like one of the top cornerbacks in football for the first two years of the deal, he’d expect the Jets to give him a raise. Now Revis has held up his end of it by continuing to play like one of the top cornerbacks in football.
The Jets, however, are probably going to be a lot less willing to re-do Revis’s deal than they were two years ago. There reaches a point when a team simply has to tell a player that he’s going to have to play under the contract he agreed to, and the Jets may have decided that that point with Revis is now.
And if that’s the case, this could be a protracted problem for a team that has insisted it needs to eliminate off-field distractions.

Santonio Holmes did an interview on the NFL Network last night, most of you probably saw it and more of you surely know about the interview and what he said by now. I don't normally like to write a piece on someone else's interview that everyone has access to, but like Will McAvoy from the new HBO show The Newsroom, "I'm on a mission to civilize."This isn'...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via NFL.com, the New York Jets can only wait and see if cornerback Darrelle Revis holds out from the start of training camp.
“I think (the Jets) are going to see what Revis does,” Mortensen said. “He’s kept everyone guessing. I’m almost going to be surprised if he’s there day one.”
I wouldn’t be shocked if Revis decides...
The New York Jets defense struggled heavily when it came to covering the tight end last season. Basically, if a team had a good receiving tight end, they exploited the hell out of Rex Ryan’s defense. Jason Witten finished with 110 yards, including a 64 yarder. Fred Davis grabbed 6 passes for 99 yards. Brent Celek went off for 156 yards and a touchdown. Rob Gronkowski pulled in...

BRUTALLY. UNUSUAL. SPECIAL. TALENT.
Heading into the 2012 NFL draft, the New York Jets had needs at multiple positions including a right tackle, a deep threat wide receiver, a safety, and finally, a pass rusher. In each of the past two seasons, the Jets leader in sacks has not been impressive for gang green...
New York Jets games in 2011 were filled with turnovers – the Jets were tied for second in the NFL with 31 takeaways but also had the most giveaways in the league with 34. Turnovers are part of the sudden change aspect of the game. Unpredicted, games can turn at any time on a given play. Are turnovers truly unpredictable? Do the trends suggest that the Jets are in for an upswing...
Mark Sanchez’s Jets West Camp is a wrap. There wasn’t much coming out of the camp like previous years and that was done on purpose. This year it was top secret and Mark even went as far as to hire armed security guards to keep the people out.
Some fans were able to go as contest winners and sit in watch the very private workouts.
Some comments and tweets with pictures...
In the past, I've been accused of being a Tim Tebow hater, and that's not simply not true. He's a dynamic player, but I'm not sure he can be successful in a long term capacity as an NFL starter. Regardless of your personal feelings on Tebow as a starting quarterback, it's a proven fact that he can excite a fanbase like no other player in the NFL, and for the Jets...
We all know that Tim Tebow has, dare I say, a magical way of drawing crowds. His Easter speech this past April had 15,000 folks flock to Texas, and his Father’s Day sermon in California saw a crowd of 26,000 gather to catch a glimpse of the quarterback.
So, naturally, it comes as no surprise that the Jets are bracing themselves for when Tebowmania hits training camp just days from...
Are you a Jets fan that believes Santonio Holmes has changed his attitude from last year (being a selfish WR Diva) and has turned the corner? How can YOU be sure that we won’t get a repeat of last season?
If Mark Sanchez is doing his thing and feeding Santonio the ball, I suspect everything will be quiet and you will see all smiles, but what happens if Mark struggles? What...
Ir is highly unlikely that the Jets brought in Tim Tebow simply to be a backup quarterback or a contributor on special teams. As Rex Ryan and the New York coaching staff have mentioned, Tebow is expected to receive several snaps per game and be a big part of the team’s offense. He may be bluffing, but Ryan has made it clear that opponents should be ready for a dose of both Mark...
New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes was a guest on the NFL Network via ProFootballTalk.com and said that having two quarterbacks taking the first-team reps won’t work in the NFL.
“I don’t think so,” Holmes said. “Because you have to allow one quarterback to get in the rhythm of a game. And it starts from the preparation of practice.”
If you ever needed proof that owning an NFL franchise is a very fruitful endeavor, Forbes Magazine has it. Forbes ranked the 50 most valuable sports franchises around the world and all 32 NFL teams made the list. The New York Jets checked in at No. 12 on the full list and are the fifth [...]
