Default Revis agrees to 7-year deal with Jets

damn...i was hoping this would drag out for awhile...

The Darrelle Revis saga is over.
2010 NFL team previews

After month of acrimonious negotiations, multiple stalements and a threat to sit out the entire 2010 season, the All-Pro cornerback finally reached a contract agreement with the New York Jets late Sunday.

FOXSports.comís Jay Glazer is reporting the new contract is for seven years, but it may void to a four-year deal.

The 11th-hour agreement came to fruition after Jets coach Rex Ryan reportedly flew to South Florida on Sunday to meet with the teamís top defensive player and the NFLís best shutdown cornerback.

No one disagreed the talented Revis had outplayed the value of his rookie contract, which was to pay him $15 million over the next three seasons, including $1 million in 2010. After fellow All-Pro Nnamdi Asomugha secured a three-year, $45.3 million contract from the Raiders in 2009, Revis demanded that he be the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.

With that, he sought $16 million a season from the Jets, rejecting a 10-year, $120 million contract offer as well as a four-year, $40 million deal ó largely because of the small amount of guaranteed money in the offers.

Revisí agents were asking for a 10-year, $162 million contract, with more than $40 million guaranteed.
