Rex staying out of Revis talks Dan Leberfeld

Jets coach Rex Ryan wants nothing to do with the Darrelle Revis contract dispute.

“I don’t speak for him on that contract, but he knows what I think of him and what this organization thinks of Darrelle,” said Ryan. “I really don’t want to comment on those things.  My title is head football coach.  I just know he is an outstanding player, he is a New York Jet and he is going to be a Jet forever.”
This is a smart approach by D-Rex. It’s best for an NFL coach to stay out of money issues. If a player thinks the coach is screwing him out of money, very little good can come out of that.
Revis wants over $16 million per season and the Jets don’t want to go that high. They probably would be happy around $12 million.
