CB Darrelle Revis Wants To Retire With The Jets
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has not publicly voiced a displeasure with the two years that remain on his $46 million extension from 2010, but he also hasn't been willing to guarantee his attendance when the team opens training camp on in Cortland, New York on July 26. Though a third holdout remains a distinct possibility, the four-time Pro Bowler says he wants to retire with the Jets and that the team is aware of those intentions. "I want to retire here," Revis said according to Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger. "I think (general manager) Mike (Tannenbaum) knows that. I think Rex (Ryan) knows that. (The Jets) drafted me, they gave me a chance, so yeah, I want to be here and never play for another organization again. If they feel that, if Mike feels that Iím that type of person to be here, then they will compensate me. If not, then it's the business of it." After holding out of 2010 training camp to get his current contract, labeled a "Band Aid" deal even though it has paid out $32.5 million over the last 21 months, Revis will earn $13.5 million over the next two seasons and is no longer the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.
