Revis hurt and frustrated Dan Leberfeld

Cortland – Darrelle Revis didn’t report to training camp. He’s upset over his contract.
“We waited until last possible minute with hope of getting something done,” Revis’ agent Neil Schwartz said in a statement. “Darrelle won’t be there. He’s hurt. Frustrated. He was extremely disappointed. He was very deliberate with his family weighing everything in his decision.”
According to one unnamed Jet, Revis has been offered a 10-year deal for $150 million, including $50 million guaranteed. However, the player isn’t sure how that deal is structured. It probably doesn’t have a ton of upfront money.
It’s possible Revis could follow the lead of his uncle, Sean Gilbert, a former NFL defensive tackle, who sat out an entire 1997 season in Washington, because he was unhappy over his contract.
The economy (17 percent unemployment when you include people who have given up looking for a job) and the NFL’s uncertain labor future are definitely impacting the Revis’ negotiations.
