NEW YORK (WFAN) — Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been asked over and over again this offseason whether he’ll report to training camp on time.

His answers have mostly been vague, with an “I don’t know,” or contract talks will come “sooner or later.”

Back in his hometown of Aliquippa, Pa., Revis gave a couple lines we’ve heard before — and something entirely new.

“I don’t know,” Revis told the Beaver County Times after a kids’ football clinic at Aliquippa High School. “That’s up to (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum. I really don’t know.”

The 26-year-old 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 do talk to Mike Tannenbaum when I see him in the building,” Revis said. “But we don’t talk about contract issues. This will get resolved sooner or later.”

Whether he’s a no-show at the onset of training camp this July at SUNY Cortland remains to be seen, though Revis recently told the Newark Star-Ledger he’d like to retire with the Jets.

Widely regarded as the best cornerback in the NFL, the University of Pittsburgh alum recorded 52 tackles, four interceptions and a touchdown last season while playing all 16 games.
