Derrelle Revis is a hot topic right now because he is holding out and has still not gotten the contract that he wants. He obviously deserves more money seeing that he is currently the 8th highest paid DB...ON THE JETS!
But this has dragged on long enough, and I am tired of hearing about it. Rex Ryan already said that the Jets are planning on playing without Revis, so who knows how this will end up. Football players have short careers and after seeing what Revis did last year it would be a shame if we could not see him play at all this year.
UPDATE: Paulie Grouper just emailed me with his opinion on this issue:
"I think Revis should be playing. He was a 1st round pick, so therefore he got a lot of guaranteed money up front. So when he says he is getting one million dollars this year that’s not really true.
If you get ____ amount as a signing bonus they aren’t just giving it to you because you are a nice guy, that is part of your contract. Just because his game check isn’t huge this year doesn’t mean he isn’t getting paid. You have to actualize part of that bonus over the life of the contract…I think hold outs by former 1st rounders is pretty bush (league)"
Anyone else with opinions on Mr. Revis and his holdout feel free to sound off in the comments...
But this is a college football blog so we have decided to dig up a sick vid of Revis at Pitt for your enjoyment...
Monster block to spring him
