9/6/2010: Signed a four-year, $46 million contract. The deal contains $32.5 million guaranteed, including all of Revis' first two base salaries and an $18 million first-year option bonus. The contract stipulates that Revis cannot be franchise tagged when his deal voids following the 2013 season. 2013: $3 million (+ $1 million workout bonus + $1 million roster bonus due 3/16 + $1 million reporting bonus), 2014-2016: (Voidable Years) $3 million, 2017: Free Agent
I thought he was expected to recieve 16 million?
Yep, it's correct. He is due 3M in bonuses, plus a 3M base, the Jets will take a 9M hit for trading him.
He wants 16M per year on a new deal, not sure why it was reported he would make 16M, he makes like 9M in 2013 with prorated bonuses accounted for.
Its not a need, its a luxury. I think this pretty much says it all. His contract would be just too overwhelming to absorb. With the way the cap works, he would end up being more of a burden in the grand scheme of things.
