Bart Hubbuch claims the Revis camp is upset about Jets’ leaks.
“Despite their apparent leak to the contrary, the Jets are no closer to signing
Darrelle Revis . . .” wrote Hubbuch in the New York Post. “A Newsday report yesterday claimed the Jets were prepared to end their ugly contract impasse with Revis by adding six years to the disgruntled cornerback’s contract that would make the total deal worth $100 million.
“But Revis laughed off that report to friends, pointing out that NFL contracts
are not guaranteed and that the only thing that matters — at least in pro football negotiations — is money paid up front in the form of bonuses and other guarantees. Under the league’s current system, the Jets could cut Revis before any of the six years kicks in, rendering the $100 million figure meaningless.
“People close to Revis said he considers the Jets to be the source of that leaked report and that he feels it was yet another attempt by the team to make itself look good while making Revis appear greedy.”
So let’s get this straight. The Revis’ camp, that leaks stuff almost on a daily basis to the press, is upset at what they consider Jets’ leaks.
