Jets fans, I'm going to make this simple, Revis won't be a holdout or get a new deal this year.

First and foremost, Revis has a clause in his contract that if he holds out; the Jets can tack on three years for next to nothing.

Revis would never risk that, he is in his prime. He knows this and he will have to play this year; the Jets simply can’t afford a new deal right now. It’s not all bad for Revis, his agent added him a clause as well.

The Jets can’t franchise him after this deal. This deal gives both sides a little insurance, making it a win-win deal.

Let’s face it; Revis and Rex Ryan are the face of this franchise. Revis will sign a new deal NEXT year and not in 2012. The Jets simply can't afford to pay him again, after they paid him $32 million the last two years when they didn't even have to.

That's right he was under contract and the Jets rewarded him. Now he has to play for a little less for one year - if he has a problem with it he shouldn’t of signed the deal. Let’s remember, the Jets could have forced him to play out his original deal and Revis was a clear winner along with the team.

The Jets can’t tag Revis so the plan is to make him play out this year and then pay him in 2013. The Jets won’t risk him hitting the open market. Remember they can’t tag him, so he will have a new deal next year. There will always be one team willing to throw all their money at him. Teams throw money at players who are far less skilled, and have off-field issues. Revis has none of those issues and would demand a large contract if he hits the open market.

If Revis continues to play at this level he will be a lock for the Hall of Fame. This was a brilliant deal for the Jets. They locked Revis up for these last two years. The deal came at a great price, and it comes much cheaper than having to franchise him. Adding the holdout clause into the contract gives them all the chips! With no holdout, the fans wont get frustrated, well not yet anyway…

Mike Tannenbaum hit this one right on the head, but make no mistake, Revis won on this deal as well. This deal almost ensures Revis stays with the Jets. With the Drew Brees injury fresh in mind and seeing how it hurt his contract year, most player’s wont risk having something like that happen.

If Revis were to play complete hardball and decide to leave the Jets for the most available money he could, he would risk playing his last year with a small salary, and risk an injury affecting his next contract. In this day in the NFL, most players will take a little less money for the added insurance. If Revis thinks like he plays then he won't risk an injury and will sign a deal next year with the Jets.

With all this said, Revis is the best player on the Jets and they need him. Revis isn't a Ray Lewis-type of leader, he’s a different kind of leader, the kind that leads by example and sets the standard on the field. Revis doesn’t have to yell and scream to set the playing standard, his level of play sets that standard for him!

Revis knows he is the best cornerback in the game and will demand a monster contract next year. I wouldn’t want Jets management trying to iron out that deal come next year. The good thing here is that it’s a next year’s problem as far as the fans should be concerned.

Has Revis lost the fans? No not a chance. We hear the owners preach “It’s a business,” when they cut or trade our fan favorite. So we need to respect the player’s business aspect as well. I can promise you this much, Revis will be playing every game this year, and won't be a holdout.

To be more clear, until Revis gets a new contract he can’t risk any kind of holdout. Mark my words, Revis will not hold out.
