Jets CB Darrelle Revis, hungering for a contract extension, participated in mini-camp today. Sort of.
He sat out a few plays at the end of practice Monday, and though he told the NY Daily News’ Manish Mehta that he was “a little light headed,” Revis basically winked when he used that excuse. He said he was insulted by the Jets offer and that, as of now, the contract talks “(don’t) look good.”
The big issue is what the Raiders pay their star cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, giving him a $45 million, three-year contract last season. He’s supposed to make about $16 million in 2010, or 16 times what Revis will be paid this season. Revis, meanwhile, believes he should be the highest-paid CB in the NFL. I’d expect the Jets to give him more money, but I’m not sure they’ll give him that much money.
