Revis open to short-term contract fix, unsure he'll be at camp

The New York Jets and Darrelle Revis' agent, Neil Schwartz, have recently communicated about a possible solution to the Pro Bowl cornerback's contract impasse, and it wouldn't require a long-term deal, a league source said Friday.

Still, Revis isn't sure whether or not he will report for the start of training camp Sunday in Cortland, N.Y., according to the source.

Revis isn't dead set on matching the NFL's top cornerback contract -- the three-year, $45.3 million deal that Nnamdi Asomugha signed with the Oakland Raiders in 2009 -- under these circumstances, but he would seek to gain more financial security. Something in the range of a three-year, $30 million deal likely would do the job. A one-year stopgap, along the lines of the $1 million or so that the Tennessee Titans recently gave running back Chris Johnson, isn't something that Revis would entertain.

The Jets might not be willing to do a deal in the $30 million range, and perhaps the sides can strike a two-year pact or find some other common ground. And, after watching close friend and former teammate Leon Washington suffer a serious injury that greatly impacted his short-term earning potential, Revis is mulling all options.
