Jets tried trading WR Stepehen Hill this summer. No takers. Let's see if final cuts today and Saturday change that equation.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 02:52 PM) any CBs that are decent on the trade block or facing salary cuts?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:00 PM) I wouldnt cut Hill watch him go to NE and turn into Randy Moss
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) I'm just glad there aren't anymore greedy bastards on the team to deal with
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) Or street thugs
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) f*** a CB problem
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (26 August 2014 - 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:18 PM) the excuses, Hill is just a terrible football player. no debate, just a fact. guy is soft as shit as well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:05 PM) All I can say I streamed this game and if anyone thinks about recording it from NFL Network at 4pm Eastern Saturday.....DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:07 PM) This game was pure sh1t. Even though it was back up players the Jets got totally destroyed in this game. After seeing this game Im really worried about the Jets starting core because these backup guys looked like they shouldn't have even been on the field at all. I just hope the starters are 3000 times better than these guys that played in game 4
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:09 PM) The Jets got horse f*cked by the Eagles in this game.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:24 PM) we are hosed in the secondary
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:26 PM) we need to cut this assclown patterson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:34 PM) did Hill get cut yet?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:36 PM) lol. We might need to look at the Eagles cuts for possible 2nd and 3rd stringers
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:12 PM) who cares about getting destroyed in a preseason game, especially the 4th one. Most of these guys won't even make the team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:23 PM) Hill is a bum, hes pretty much never shown much football skill. The Jets fucked up big time taking him over Alshon Jeffery.

I'm unemployed right now and so are millions of other Americans, and it doesn't look good for the immediate future. There's 12% unemployment in Florida where i live. It makes me sick to hear Revis turn down that kind of money. I don't want him as a member of my Jets.

I like the idea. Why wouldn't this work for the Jets? He gets $100 mil in his pocket no matter what. If he keeps up his performance, he can go over Aso's salary by way of bonus money. I wonder how much the Jets are guaranteeing in their contract offer.
[/quote]

It doesn't work that way, and i'm not trying to be a jerk, but obviously you don't understand NFL contracts. he doesn't get 100 million no matter what. the whole contract will never be guarenteed, and at the end its teh total compensation and what yoru saying will be 160 million which is exactly what revis wants and what the jets won't give him

where did[i] you get 160 mil thts a number f[/i]or someone like C mart but not Revis. Revis doesn't translate into points.But than this is just a game as we will soon find out.I am afraid that this could change revis as a shut down corner he has upset his destiny its on a different course now.

The 160 number came from a report stating the Jets offered a 10 yr 120 million dollar contract, but Mevis' people came back saying it was 40 million short.

Mevis is trying to get this huge payday because he knows he wont be getting another one after this. I got a bad feeling we're going to get scerwed even harder by him after he does finally get a deal. This'll likely be his last contract because no one is going to want to touch him after all this is said and done. He likely wont be a shutdown corner anymore because his mind will be too busy thinking of his bank account rather than his duties on the field.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

:Cry:

So, a quick recap here. D. Revis is in the middle of his rookie contract. He has rejected a 10 year, 120 Million Dollar contract. D. Revis wants 160 Million Dollars. You have got to be f***ing kidding me. I see why ticket sales and all the merchandise is so much money. Holy f*** batman. If you arent willing to take a 120 Million Dollar contract for the chance to play on what could be the greatest defense in a long time, and even a Super Bowl? WTF are you doing as a football player?

IDK if you watched hardknocks last night, but they had MT driving to meet with revis's people at that now famous friday meeting at roscoes diner that lasted 3 hours. The cameras weren't allowed in the meeting but when MT came out he seemed very down and upset and all he said was he didn't even agree with 1 thing they said all meeting.

By Rich Cimini
ESPNNewYork.com

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The New York Jets and the agents for Darrelle Revis reached a truce, issuing a joint statement Thursday in which they vowed to work toward a resolution to the contract standoff.

"Both parties have had conversations to clear the air and will continue to negotiate with the hopes of reaching an agreement," the statement read. "From this point forward, all discussions regarding these negotiations will remain confidential."

It's time for the Jets' brass to be quiet, and just focus on signing Darrelle Revis, Johnette Howard writes.

Minutes after the statement was released to reporters, coach Rex Ryan was asked to comment. The usually talkative Ryan looked at the Jets' public relations director, turned back toward reporters and said: "Can't talk about it."

The sniping between the two sides escalated in recent days, with the agents calling the Jets "blatant liars." It prompted Ryan to make an unorthodox proposal: He invited Revis and his agents to training camp to meet with the entire team. Then, on Wednesday night's debut of "Hard Knocks," general manager Mike Tannenbaum painted a grim picture of the Revis negotiations. In recent days, owner Woody Johnson has made a media blitz, making ominous statements about Revis' chances of playing this season.

The war of words -- and the blatant posturing -- is over. Now the question becomes whether the two sides can hammer out a deal, As of early this morning, they were miles apart, according to sources.
The All-Pro cornerback has missed 11 days, including Wednesday, since the team reported for training camp at SUNY Cortland. He's scheduled to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, but wants to become the league's highest-paid cornerback.

Revis is seeking a deal bigger than the three-year, $45.3 million extension Oakland's Nnamdi Asomugha signed last offseason. He has not commented publicly since minicamp in June.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

You are aware that there is a thing called the salary cap right? Or at least there will be. That's the issue. Who cares if it's for five years or ten years, once the cap is back in place it's gonna be ridiculously hard to pay a guy that kind of money who's not your quarterback. Not to mention that no one has any way of knowing what the cap will be when it comes back.

And on the 13th day of Darrelle Revis' holdout ... there was silence. Again.

Both the New York Jets and Revis' representatives honored their gag-order agreement, with neither side commenting publicly on the negotiations.

After a media blitz aimed to win public support and put pressure on the Revis camp, the Jets have shut it down. The All-Pro cornerback's chatty agents, too, haven't returned phone calls.

An interesting subplot will be HBO's "Hard Knocks." In Wednesday night's premier, the show devoted a considerable amount of air time to Revis' holdout, with comments from Rex Ryan, GM Mike Tannenbaum and owner Woody Johnson.

Will the Jets lift the media blackout for HBO, allowing the cable network to air Revis-related material in next Wednesday's episode? That, of course, would be a double standard. The Jets won't comment on their plans, deferring questions to HBO.

"We will continue to follow all of the important storylines concerning the New York Jets, including Darrelle Revis," an HBO spokesman said. "If management tells us a matter is private, we will honor that request."

A nugget or two on the negotiations would make for good TV -- no one is denying that -- but it also would make the Jets look bad and two-faced. If you want to keep it confidential, stick to your guns.

Meanwhile, the two sides continue to work toward a resolution. Revis, seeking about $16 million per year, has said through his agents that he won't report unless he gets a new contract. The Jets are offering short- and long-term deals, the latter a 10-year, $120 million proposal. How much is fully guaranteed, however, remains a question.

People familiar with the talks believe the Jets' best chance of getting Revis into camp is with a "band-aid" contract, a short-term agreement that bumps up his 2010 compensation from $1 million. In that case, they could re-open long-term talks after the season, when the league's labor situation might be clarified.

The Jets' short-term offer contains about $5 million in 2010 pay, and there's no way that will get it done. If Johnson wants Revis, he'll have to step up with more cash.
