Not bad, and very reasonable relatively speaking.
That's about $8 mil a year guaranteed. He's worth the money and given that he's an up and coming star and still young, I think the Jets did real well on this deal.
Best outcome the Jets could've ever hoped to get; all things considered...

Not alot of overall money (well..at least compared with the 160m he wanted), but a ****load of guaranteed cash. The thing is almost 75% guaranteed, actually.

I don't think they won the deal. This guy got the type of guaranteed money you would expect in a mega 7 year deal all bunched into 4 years. Not only do the Jets NOT get to spread out the guaranteed money over a long time to lower the individual year cap hit, but when the deal runs out, he's only 29 and therefore he probably still has the skills to demand another massive deal. Revis is never going to be in a situation where he's hit the lean years of the contract, where there are no more big payouts and he's playing for 2m per season. He'll never have to worry about that in this deal. He'll ALWAYS be getting paid and he'll be in his prime right when he's a FA, again.

The Jets got a bit of a discount in terms of yearly value (11M vs. Asomugha's 15M), but the structure heavily favors Revis, IMO.

I don't have all the details, and I'm not sure how you do unless you've been watching ESPN.

However, 29 is RIGHT when your prime usually starts to end, so quite possibly that could be a nice contract year, you're right. If he can play well and stay healthy to 29, he'll definitely be able to demand another big contract.

not really, this was a very fair deal to the team. the guarantees are a base of 8 million per year, nothing for an elite corner. why do you think 8 mil guaranteed for 4 years is such a bad deal for a top 2 corner in the NFL? because 7 year contracts are typically that much guaranteed?

this got him at a discount rate for the jets for teh next 4 years, at which point they can discuss another deal if they need to, or if his play falls off, they dont have to. they are protected either way.

Anyway, the Jets won this one. He's not the highest paid corner or player in the NFL for that matter, but he did make a nice bank, however...

Exactly.

This contract is much better for the other corners of the league that are due a new contract soon. (from a team perspective).

Honestly, to come out of this with only 46 million total is a bargain for the Jets. Would you rather have signed Revis to a mega deal of 7-10 myear with near 100 mill or 100 mill+?

They also have Kyle Wilson, a 1st round draft pick CB... a nice insurance and prospect they can build upon.

No...well, at least not on Revis's end. One can certainly make the case for a teacher being paid for than $ 40,000.00 per year because of the importance of their job to the nation, but I don't think you can say this means Revis is grossly overpaid.

Here's why:

There is no exclusive way of establishing value. For example, if I make (and sell) 2 million worth of widgets per year and get a salary of 300,000.00 one could say a teacher should be paid more because who cares about widgets and teaching kids is inherently valuable. Well, it is inherently valuable, but no matter what you think about the type of product or service that I made, the fact is, it brought in 2 million dollars and that's value, so a salary fo 300,000.00 is not unreasonable. Same with a football player. The big names bring in big money, so they are worth big money. Peyton Manning just throws a football and Michael Jordan just shot hoops, not things that are inherently important, but no one can dispute they brought in hundreds of millions to their franchise during their careers, so they were worth what they were paid. That's a perfectly good way to establish value of services, too. No one way is controlling, IMO.

I mean really what are you going to do? Pay public school teachers (non college) 200 grand a year? There would be an overload, the job requirements aren't much and it's not a hard job as far as skill requirement.

A professional sports athlete will always generate more money, so what are you going to do? not pay the athlete and take this money and put it where it's morally right? There won't be great athletes anymore.

The total amount is irrelevant as it can be full of 'funny money'. The percentage of guaranteed money is the key, especially with such a short contract and 75% is insane! Someone above made a great point that when this contract is up, he'll be due for an even bigger mega contract (assuming he keeps his level of play up).

Even though Revis didn't get what he originally wanted, the Jets caved big time IMO.

Yes, because the media has Rex's dick jammed just as far down their throats as they possibly can. Mostly because he's an outspoken idiot who gives them good copy.

Revis had two years left on his deal. Him holding out sacrificed the bonuses that would've pushed the overall value to $20M.

Instead he's effectively gotten a two year extension that added more than 50% more guananteed money and more than doubled his salary. It also makes him a free agent at a pretty prime age to get another monster deal.

So Revis:
Gets paid now instead of later.

Gets guaranteed more money than anyone with the exception of the single worst deal ever signed in the NFL (Asomougha).

Gets significantly more money than he would've made if he just played it out.

Only sacrificed two additional years of service.

All in all a pretty big win for a guy who had two more years on his deal still. The media can sell it however they want, Revis held their toes to the fire and got a real nice pay day. $11.5M a year with $8M guaranteed. He'll likely see all $46M even if he sucks now because so much cash is already owed him.

the whiners are also forgetting that the NFL is a meritocracy. Revis is being paid what he's being paid because he's BETTER at his position than almost every other player at his position.

teachers unions have removed that whole concept from how teachers are paid in government schools. if teachers were paid like the NFL, the best teachers would be making much more than $40K, and the worst teachers would be fired. in many places, it's practically impossible to fire incompetent teachers because of the teachers unions. these BAD teachers continue to taint their schools and suck at the taxpayer teet for years and years because its so hard to get rid of them.

Why do athletes have to play for the love of the game while everyone cries about teachers needing more money? Why can't teachers teach for the love of teaching?

Everyone should worry more about bringing the salaries of superstars down to more reasonable numbers than worrying about who else should get more money. Last year, I finally accomplished my goal of not spending a single extra dollar on NFL. No hats, no shirts, no tickets, nothing. I watched games that were on channels I already receive so they made money off me most likely but I did not spend a single penny more than if I had not watched the game. If you can't say the same thing, you're part of the problem and have noone to blame but yourself.

Until there's not a years upon years waiting list to give the NFL team of choice your money so you can out-fan someone else, the system will continue to be all sorts of screwed up and there's noone to blame but those superfans.

Revis is benefitting from a very formiddable front 7. Champ had a better year statistically than Revis ever will in 2005 with what really amounts to a good LB corp and a sub-par front 4.

I dont think Revis is the best corner in the NFL. Right now I think Asomugha is an Champ is still second. What Champ has lost in speed has has more than made up for with experience.

I enjoy the product, I'm not opposed to them making some money. The networks that pay the most are the basic cable companies. By having basic cable, I contribute some money to the pool but I don't mind that.

Just saying those who are paying $75 per game to buy season tickets, $100+ to wear a jersey, etc. That adds up quick. How can you spend all that extra money and then complain about the money the players are making? You could've watched it at home for free, most likely.

Again, it's my position and mine alone. Just don't wait in line for the opportunity to throw more money at them and then complain about how much they're making.

I dont think so.

Revis is benefitting from a very formiddable front 7. Champ had a better year statistically than Revis ever will in 2005 with what really amounts to a good LB corp and a sub-par front 4.

I dont think Revis is the best corner in the NFL. Right now I think Asomugha is an Champ is still second. What Champ has lost in speed has has more than made up for with experience.

Everyone needs a decent front 7 to perform well. You can't knock on a guy for doing well in a system. It's like telling me you don't think Manning and Brady aren't that good because they have good talent around them.

Derrelle Revis' 31 pass deflections last year might of been a record of when they started keeping track of it. I went as far back as the 90's and couldn't find anyone with as much. I'm not sure if you've seen Revis play but it's really hard to say he's NOT the best right now. Champ had a better season in 2005 has nothing to do with what is right now.

I mean, the man said it himself....

Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey has long been considered one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. But Bailey says he has to admit that he's not the best in the league. Darrelle Revis is.

"I was reluctant to give it to anybody because I thought I was the best," Bailey said when asked about Revis on 104.3 the Fan. "But I've got to give it to him. He's better than anyone right now."

Yes, because the media has Rex's dick jammed just as far down their throats as they possibly can. Mostly because he's an outspoken idiot who gives them good copy.

Revis had two years left on his deal. Him holding out sacrificed the bonuses that would've pushed the overall value to $20M.

Instead he's effectively gotten a two year extension that added more than 50% more guananteed money and more than doubled his salary. It also makes him a free agent at a pretty prime age to get another monster deal.

So Revis:
Gets paid now instead of later.

Gets guaranteed more money than anyone with the exception of the single worst deal ever signed in the NFL (Asomougha).

Gets significantly more money than he would've made if he just played it out.

Only sacrificed two additional years of service.

All in all a pretty big win for a guy who had two more years on his deal still. The media can sell it however they want, Revis held their toes to the fire and got a real nice pay day. $11.5M a year with $8M guaranteed. He'll likely see all $46M even if he sucks now because so much cash is already owed him.

I don't think anyone said Revis isn't coming out with a nice contract.

However, I think we all agree that Revis got paid what he probably deserves moreso than raping the Jets. Hence why I think the Jets holding out on Revis got Revis to cave in with a smaller contract at the end of the day than he originally wanted.

There are a million+ people in this country that can teach little Timmy to use his 1 step above a monkey brain. Teach him how to read a letter or count his little digits, BFD.

Only 1 or 2 people in this world can play CB at the level of Revis. Supply and demand my friend, teachers are just 'ordinary'.

Obviously you've never experienced a good teacher nor a bad one. I guess all your teachers were just 'ordinary'.

The straight salary is fair. The guaranteed is what's the real problem. The Jets have given up the single biggest edge NFL teams have over players, flexibility. If you're giving out that kind of guarantee you need to be making it up on the total dollar amount. Considering that they had 2 years left on his rookie deal so he wasn't getting top CB money, but they gave him pretty damn close.
