Jets Offseason 2012: Darrelle Revis Ponders About Possible Second Holdout

Dealing with more offseason roster issues than most NFL franchise do in one decade, the New York Jets might have one more issue to add to their list. Reports from a charity event in Manhattan, have corner back Darrelle Revis thinking about another possible preseason holdout that might earn him the largest contract among NFL corner backs.

"I just don't know," he told a group of reporters at a charity event in Manhattan. "I'm not saying I am going to hold out; I'm not saying I'm not going to hold out. Right now my focus is just being on the team. ... I'm getting ready for the 2012-13 season. That's all I can do."

Just 19 months ago, Revis held himself out of Training Camp and most of the the preseason schedule to try an earn himself more money. The strategy worked, and now, after watching Nnamdi Asomugha and Brandon Carr ink better contracts over the last two seasons, Revis may want more money.

NFL Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh pondered Tuesday, whether the Jets would pay Revis this time around.

Revis had three years remaining on his contract the first time these two parties butted heads. This time around, the 26-year-old has two years left. This raises an interesting question. Should the Jets be willing to pony up the greenbacks once again this summer, what’s to stop Revis from demanding another new contract two years from now?

In all likelihood, the answer is nothing.

All-in-all, chalk this up as more off-the-field drama to watch for after the NFL Draft ends and Training Camp begins in Cortland, NY in August.
