Over on ProFootballTalk, Mike Florio is reporting that at least one team has a serious offer in place for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
A league source tells PFT that the Jets have an offer on the table for Revis. Per the source, the offer is a “good” one, both as to the compensation given to the team and the financial package that would be extended to Revis.
Another source tells PFT that, if such an offer has been made, the financial component has yet to be shared with the Revis camp. To date, the Jets and Revis have had no talks, and the Jets have not given Revis’s agents permission to talk to other teams regarding a new contract.
On Monday, owner Woody Johnson declined to discuss the situation during a press conference regarding the joint NFL-GE concussion initiative that he would answer questions about Revis “next week,” presumably at the league meetings in Arizona.
It’s believed that, during the annual March get-together, the Jets will make a strong push to work out a deal, possibly with Johnson directly negotiating terms with other owners.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThe team that was rumored to have the most interest most recently was the Eagles … as far as what “good” compensation is … that’s a very subjective word.
As far as the financials not being shared with Revis’s camp? That’s what would be “proper” given the circumstances … but I’m not sure I buy that one.
