What does Elvis deal mean for Revis? Dan Leberfeld

Denver Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil agreed to a contract extension Thursday. It’s reportedly a six-year deal worth $61.5 million, and includes between $41 million and $43 million in guarantees.
What does this deal mean for Darelle Revis?
Not much.
Unless he comes to the realization that $10-12 million a year isn’t bad money.
San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis also received an extension in the $10 million a year range this off-season.
Dumervil had 17 sacks last year.
Willis led the league in tackles.
Both are Top 20 players in the league.
If $10 million a year is good enough for these star players. why isn’t $12 million a year good for Revis?
Only Darrelle can answer that.
