Could the biggest holdout story of the year, that of Darrelle Revis remaining absent from Jets' training camp, be coming to an end? If you believe one side of the reports, then yes. CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco just sent this tweet : "Revis close to deal, according to reports. Shocking? Players don't miss game checks. How many times can I say it?"

Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News has been saying all week that Revis and the Jets will have an agreement by, roughly, Wednesday night.

Tuesday, Dan Graziano FanHouse jumped in the fray :
It's been a weird couple of days trying to make sense of the Darrelle Revis contract negotiations with the Jets, but one source close to the situation told FanHouse on Tuesday that the star cornerback's long-awaited contract extension with the team is "almost there" and could be finalized and announced in the coming days. We'll keep you posted...

UPDATE: ESPN's John Clayton and Chris Mortensen are both refuting the story that a meeting between Revis' people and the Jets is taking place Tuesday night.

Even with Revis your still not a playoff team until you don't have to have to teams lay down so you can get into the playoffs. True Story.

All the ring parties are OVER up in foxboro mass.
You're defense is swiss cheese and very wet behind the ears!  Mr. Gisele can't do it all, sorry...
I agree about the Dolphins though.  If the Jets don't get Revis locked up then they finish second in the AFC East behind Miami.With Revis it's onto the big dance for my boys.
Patsie fans get ready to pick up the scraps in the east with the Buffalo Bills!

Completely agree with you. Not enough credit is given to the system that Ryan implemented last year. yes Revis is good, but not for that much money. Plus if you make a deal you keep it. What ever happened to a Man having Honor?  He has none that is for sure. Complete Greed on his part.

Let's just see how much guaranteed money he gets before making any rash comments. Realistically, Revis will probably play out 5-6 years of this so called 10 year contract before he renegotiates again or gets released.

Spoken like a guy that has never played a down, or put his body on the line for anything. In other words, a bean counting management Puke.

I keep seeing the posts saying "pay the man". I'm in the other camp. 
I say trade the man. 
1st the jets signed this guy to a pretty fair 6 yr 30 million dollar contract with 11 million guaranteed. That's pretty nice money. He's in year 3. And there is something to be said for keeping your end of the bargain. 5 million a year is nothing to sneeze at. Pay him more but to pay a 3rd year guy a salary to a guy that's been the best for 3 years is bad management. 
2nd Revis is benefitting from the Ryan system. He's a great player made better by a system that he fits in ? Why give him a raise ? If you hire a plumber to fix your toilet and he does it well and for the quoted price do you tack on an extra 100 ? If you go to work and do your job for far less than 5 million will you hold if management says sorry no raises we have to thing about all the employees ? 
3rd The Jets went out and got Cromartie, a very similar player to pair with Revis and drafted Kyle Wilson and still had a competent Dwight Lowery and Undrafted Free Agent Brian Jackson was awfully solid at Oklahoma facing some pretty fine WRs. The guys the Jets have could hold up just fine. 
Are the jets a better team without Revis ? That depends on what they get for him. Best bet is probably draft picks but big d-linemen that fit that 30 front Jenkins has been injury prone. Ellis isn't getting any younger. Pouha is solid in a rotation. DeVito is a gamer but not a game changer and Rodrigue Wright is a journeyman. 
But I've seen a lot of players get big money then get hurt and never be the same. I've seen CB's just tweak a hamstring and lose confidence forever. I've seen guys get big pay days after career years and never produce as well again. I've never seen any of them offer to pay any of that big money back. 
Long term the investment is safer if spent on the O-line, D-line and Linebacker positions. They have a much longer shelf life than CB's. And A CB is easier to avoid because they play one half the field. 
Build in the trenches...They last longer, they come cheaper, and realistically they set the tone for the rest of the team.
