NEW YORK (WFAN) — Take a deep breath and relax, Jets fans. Your All-Pro cornerback is in Cortland.
It was reported last week that Darrelle Revis would show up on time to training camp despite his contract situation. But without a reworked deal, there was still some lingering doubt over whether he’d hold out.
The speculation can now end. The 27-year-old arrived at the team’s Florham Park facility on Thursday for his physical and conditioning test, according to WFAN’s Peter Schwartz.
Jets players traveled from there and arrived at SUNY Cortland this afternoon.
Revis held out of training camp before his rookie year in 2007 and then again in 2010, when he was rewarded with what was characterized as a “Band-Aid” contract worth $46 million over four years. He has two years and $13.5 million remaining on that deal.
“I don’t know,” Revis told the Beaver County Times in June when asked if he would hold out. “That’s up to (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum. I really don’t know.”
Widely regarded as the best cornerback in the NFL, Revis recorded 52 tackles, four interceptions and a touchdown last season while playing all 16 games.
