Jets Forcing Darrelle Revis To Attend Off-Season Workouts To Get $3 Million Bonus

Darrelle Revis has another conundrum upon him right now.  Revis expecting to be traded, so he would prefer to workout on his own in Arizona and continue his knee rehab.

The Jets know they want to trade Revis, but have no qualms about making things even more awkward by enforcing a rule in Revis’ contract language that calls for him to attend off-season workouts to get a $3 million bonus according to ESPN New York. 

Even though they may trade him before or during the April 25 draft, the Jets plan to enforce language in the star cornerback’s contract that requires him to participate in the voluntary workouts to collect bonus money, sources said.

Revis has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee with his personal trainer in Arizona and, with an uncertain future, he’d prefer to stay there at least through the draft to focus on his rehab and avoid a potentially uncomfortable situation, according to sources.

The Jets will force Revis to workout at a facility where he is clearly not wanted.

When Revis renegotiated his contract in 2010,  he agreed to a clause that requires his attendance in all off-season activities, even non-mandatory workouts, sources said.

If Revis doesn’t participate in 80 percent of the workouts, he will forfeit a $1 million workout bonus,  a $1 million roster bonus (triggered March 17, but payable at a later date) and a $1 million reporting bonus at the start of training camp.



  1. Yeah what a hassle,To actually have to your job to get paid,How disconcerting,That is one of many problems within todays society,Everybody feels entitled,TO WHAT?Lets go old school and either do your job thats been contracted or go grab a shovel and dig a ditch or something,Too many premadonnas running loose,When you start making a certain level of income and receiving a certain amount of recognition it only serves to reinforce bad behavior,He has a chance to show what kind of character is in his makeup!

  2. Three million for what ten days there. Wow I show up for all ten days and workout for one days pay. As a matter of fact I even wear a jester costume if Rex wants. What an a33 Revis is. Please donot send him to Tampa. we already have a disfunctional teams and to get one of the players from the leading disfunctional can’t help. We got rid of our other headcase corner, why take on another child?
