Darrelle Revis, one of a handful of young Jets who are in line for a pay raise sometime soon, has asked the team for a contract extension that will net $20 million a year, according to a report on the nationalfootballpost.com
Only three players last season — Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler — took in salaries in excess of $20 million last season. The highest paid cornerback in the NFL last season, Dunta Robinson, formerly of the Houston Texans, earned $9.957 million.
Revis said last week that he had begun contract negotiations with the Jets, and general manager Mike Tannenbaum has said he is committed to keeping the All-Pro cornerback in a Jets uniform for the rest of his career. However, with such a hefty price tag reported, the two sides could be farther apart than initially anticipated.
