Jets Training Camp 2012: Darrelle Revis Reports To Camp, Still Wants New Contract

The New York Jets welcomed cornerback Darrelle Revis to training camp on Thursday which meant there would be no holdout after months of speculation.

However, Revis nearly decided not to show up for the camp because he wants a new contract from the team, according to a report (via Jane McManus). Revis has two seasons and $13.5 remaining on his current deal. Why did he decide to make the trip to Cortland, N.Y. this preseason? Revis said that he wanted to be there and said jokingly, "I haven't been to been to a lot of training camps in the past." (via Jane McManus)

Revis, 27, could become a free agent after the 2013 season if no contract is hammered out with the Jets. He has made four consecutive Pro Bowls (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) despite holding out for 35 days in 2010. Revis has defended 95 passes and made 18 interceptions for the Jets during his career. He also has 283 tackles and three touchdowns for New York.
