NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – The Darrelle Revis contract situation just got a whole lot uglier.

Jets owner Woody Johnson said on Tuesday that he was “rebuffed” when he asked to be part of Friday’s meeting with Mike Tannenbaum and Revis’ agents.

Agent Neil Schwartz told The Associated Press: “That’s a blatant lie. Whoever gave him that information is incorrect. I wanted Mr. Johnson’s thoughts on the proposal, so why would I not want him there?” Schwartz added that he would meet with Johnson “any time, any place.”

It is believed one major sticking point is the lack of guaranteed money included in the Jets’ offers, something Mike Tannenbaum disagrees with.

“As I said at the start of training camp, our offer to Darrelle Revis conveyed that we are flexible on how the guaranteed money is structured, including the areas of signing bonus, roster bonus and option bonus,” Tannenbaum said in a statement Tuesday night. “This situation revolves around a fundamental disagreement in total compensation.”

Revis has missed 10 days, including Tuesday, since the team reported for training camp at SUNY Cortland. He’s scheduled to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, but wants to become the league’s highest-paid cornerback.
