PLAYERS: Darrelle Revis
TEAMS: New York Jets
Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis, the subject of trade rumors, has earned a $1 million roster bonus as a result of a clause in his contract with New York. According to the clause, the bonus kicked in on Saturday since Revis remains on the Jets' roster - not traded or cut - at the end of the business day. There has been intense speculation during the past several weeks that the Jets will try to trade their best player, who is recovering from a torn knee ligament. Some believed that move could come by Saturday so the Jets could avoid the clause, but Revis will receive the bonus later in the year and it counts on New York's salary cap - whether or not he remains with the team.
