Darrelle Revis Dodges Holdout Talk, Says He's 'Cool' With Current Contract

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis told reporters Thursday that he is "cool" with his current contract and pushed away talk about a possible contract holdout prior to the 2012 NFL season.

Per Newsday's Tom Rock, Revis said, "Let's quit talking about the holding out and holding in."

"I am. I'm cool. I signed it two years ago," Revis added when asked if he was happy with his contract, as quoted by Bart Hubboch of the New York Post.

Revis did add that the contract paid him fairly "at the time," which could be a white flag even as the cornerback was on his best behavior Thursday.

Revis did not back away from his comments that Bill Belichick is a jerk, saying the New England Patriots coach is sometimes disrespectful to the Jets.
