ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) We can get all the weapons we can get to load the weapon but until the JETS have a QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) we will be wasting talent
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) and the worst thing in life is WASTED TALENT!!! - A BRONX TALE
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) One of the most positive things that this Marshall signing brings is Amaro getting more balls thrown to him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) and we'll finally have legitimate size at WR in the redzone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) but still the biggest issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) we can get monsters at WR but without a QB to throw them the ball, it's a waste of talent
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:30 PM) Or maybe its a waste of a QB with no WRs to throw to.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 04:53 PM) Or anyone to block for him
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:17 PM) fire em all
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:37 PM) Get pumped that we have actual wr talent now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) being that the JETS haven't had a WR go over 1,000 yards since 2007 when J-CO did it, is pretty indicative how bad our WR corps and subsequently our QB play has been
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) and that was Chad's last year as a NEW YORK JET
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:35 PM) and as far as Harris getting re-signed the only good thing is he is not going to end up with the bills other than that...he's not worth 15 mil guaranteed
santana Icon : (Today, 08:30 PM) FIRE MARSHALL
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:46 PM) TRADE RAUL
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:46 PM) DIRTY STREET THUG

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- The New York Jets and first-round draft pick Darrelle Revis were closing in on a deal Tuesday night, ending the touted cornerback's lengthy training camp holdout.

"We've made major, substantial progress," Revis' agent, Neil Schwartz, told The Associated Press. "We're working on it right now."

Schwartz and Revis were at the Jets' headquarters at Hofstra University discussing a deal with general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Schwartz was uncertain if an agreement would be struck sometime Tuesday night or early Wednesday.

"That, I don't know," Schwartz said. "I don't want to put the cart before the horse, but we're working. We're making progress."

A joint statement released by the team, Tannenbaum, Schwartz and his partner, Jonathan Feinsod, said that talks were moving along.

"We are working hard to reach an agreement and we will continue working as long as it takes to get the deal done," the statement said. "We are planning on meeting through the night and our intent is to meet until an agreement has been reached."

Revis, taken 14th overall after New York traded up to select him, became the Jets' first unsigned pick at the start of training camp since linebacker James Farrior in 1997. He has missed 21 practices and the team's preseason opener last Friday against Atlanta since camp opened on July 27.

The holdup in the negotiations reportedly stemmed from the length of the contract. The Jets are looking to sign Revis to a six-year deal, while the cornerback wants a five-year contract.

Once he signs, the Jets expect Revis to compete for the starting job at right cornerback, a position Justin Miller, David Barrett, Hank Poteat and Drew Coleman all took turns at last season. He could also serve as the team's punt returner.

Revis was considered one of the best overall cornerbacks in the draft, and had an outstanding college career at the University of Pittsburgh, finishing with 129 tackles and eight interceptions.

If he signs soon, the only first-round holdout would be top overall pick JaMarcus Russell, the LSU quarterback selected by Oakland.
