Cowlishaw backtracking on Revis report

Sunday, Tim Cowlishaw, a respected Dallas Morning-News reporter, dropped a tweet-bomb by announcing that a very trusted source told him Darrelle Revis and the Jets would "announce [a] new deal" on Wednesday. He actually said "probably Wednesday" but that's not the important point here, because it is Wednesday and there's no new deal.

Cowlishaw also reported that the Jets and the Revis would meet on Tuesday night; that didn't happen either, provided you believe Woody Johnson, who owns the Jets and stated that things remain "status quo" right now . (Read: no deal.)

Cowlishaw took to Twitter on Wednesday night -- as pointed out by Michael David Smith at Pro Football Talk -- to revise his original statement . Kind of.
Have I said lately I was originally told "wednesday or saturday" on Revis but I shortened it for twitter? Now seems like good time. Now, without saying that Cowlishaw -- or any of the other reports discussing Revis' eventually signing a deal -- are wrong, that's a backtrack.

We tweeted at Cowlishaw to inquire as to the joking nature of the Saturday portion of his statement, but have yet to get a response. After all, he stated on Monday that he was told "Wednesday or Saturday," which, yes, is weird.

In hindsight, Cowlishaw should have originally said "Wednesday or Saturday" in his original tweet; just because it's Twitter doesn't mean that clarity should be sacrificed for brevity.

If Revis and the Jets do announce a deal on Saturday, there'll be a small measure of redemption for Cowlishaw, but the basic fact right now is that the information he originally provided on Sunday was incorrect.

Since, you know, it's Wednesday. The good news is that at least we can stop thinking about the Jets for the next two hours until "Hard Knocks" comes on again.

No one's saying Cowlishaw isn't trusted. Just that he was wrong -- he admitted as much today.

At the end of the day, Cowlishaw is still much more trusted and respected than anyone that CBS has to offer.
