During mini-camp, Revis created quite a stir when he sat out portions of the first day complaing of being "really light-headed." The All-Pro cornerback deflected that it was a statement being made about his contract negotiations. Revis returned to the field for the next three days of mini-camp and participated fully.
The Jets complicated matters in July, signing left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson to a long-term deal that made him the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL and gave him the most guaranteed money of any tackle in the league. The long-term deal sets the precedent for Revis' demands, who is asking to be the highest paid at his position in the league. Currently, Raiders' cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha holds the mark after signing a three-year deal for $45.3 million dollars last year.
Along with Revis, center Nick Mangold is a potential hold-out for part or all of training camp. Unlike Revis who has two years left on his contract, Mangold is in the final year of the deal he signed during rookie camp.
The source said that Revis isn't certain yet whether he will report during team check-in for training camp on Sunday or the team's first day on the field on Monday, or whether the player will report at all.
