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.

With or without Revis the jets will finish no better than 3rd in the AFC East.  Sorry Jets fans but all the blabbering in the world will not get you passed the Pats or Dolphins.

I'm no Jets fan, but this guy is the real deal.  He'll be worth whatever they have (or haven't) agreed to.
