Cowlishaw's Mea Culpa

Give Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw kudos for integrity. He was wrong about Darrelle Revis signing with the New York Jets on Wednesday, and he has now stood up and accepted responsibility for reporting bad information.

“Revis and Jets announce new deal probably Wednesday. You heard it here first. Inside information!”

If I could take those 15 words I sent out into the Twitter world Sunday afternoon, if I could take a do-over on the matter of Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets, I would type:

“I think Revis and Jets get contract done sooner rather than later — probably this week, maybe even Wednesday.”

Even though he was wrong, Cowlishaw showed why he's widely respected by his NFL reporting peers.
