Kudos to Revis and Jets Dan Leberfeld
It was a protracted, nasty contract dispute, but in the end, both sides got it right.
Four years, $46 million with $34 million guaranteed is a good deal for both sides.
Revis gets around $12 million per year, which is more than fair, considering the economy and the uncertain labor situation.
He also gets a nice chuck of guaranteed money, something very important to him.
The Jets got a deal they were comfortable with, and it will help them sign other key players, like David Harris, Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and perhaps Antonio Cromartie.
And Revis also helped the Jets by backing off his demand to beat the salary of the Oakland Raider cornerback (I’m tired of trying to spell his name, it’s giving me a headache).
It was a good deal for both sides.
And I will say this about Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod – I don’t like some of their tactics, but they are certainly pitbulls for their clients.
