Woody Johnson Doesn't Think Revis Will Play This Season

The Darrelle Revis talks have made no progress, even after the two sides met at a diner in Roscoe, New York and the Revis camp submitted a contract to the Jets. The optimism just a few days ago that Revis might come into camp early seems to have waned.

And now Woody Johnson has lost a lot of faith that a deal will get done. When ESPN's Jeremy Schaap asked the team owner what his gut feeling was about Revis suiting up this season, he said no.

Johnson was brutally honest, but he should have just shut his mouth. You don't tell your fanbase that you don't think your best player is going to be playing this year, even if you think that's the case. Revis may be asking for an obscene amount of money, but keep up the faith. Especially when the coach is calling the team "soon to be champs."

It's not impossible for the Jets to win the Super Bowl without Revis. After all, the Chicago Bears vaunted 1985 defense was actually missing two starters holding out for new contracts. And with the additions of Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson, the Jets have cornerback depth to survive a lack of Revis. But make no mistake about it, they look a lot better guarding team's #2 and #3 receivers than #1's.

So where do we go from here? It's hard to tell. The deadline for Revis to show up and have this season count as an accrued season is tomorrow. It looks like he's not going to be there, so his incentive to play for $1 million dollars this season goes down greatly.

Then it would come down to who would break first. If neither side budges, Revis sits out the entire season. If the season starts, and Revis has the urge to play and try to win a Super Bowl, he might agree to a short-term raise that could get revisited at the end of the season. If the Jets struggle at the beginning of the year, especially the defense, Revis gains more leverage and the Jets may just make a desperate move to try to save their season.

Rex Ryan has said that Revis could show up the day before the season begins and still start opening day, so Revis can end this holdout at any time and have his starting job reserved for him. How long he's willing to wait is anyone's guess.
