Jets’ Ryan offers plan to settle Revis holdout
Question of the Day
Johnson told 1050 ESPN New York that he was “rebuffed” by Revis‘ agents when he asked to be part of a meeting last Friday at a diner in Roscoe, N.Y., attended by Tannenbaum, director of football administration Ari Nissim, Schwartz and business partner Jonathan Feinsod.
“That’s a blatant lie,” Schwartz said. “Whoever gave him that information is incorrect. I wanted Mr. Johnson’s thoughts on the proposal, so why would I not want him there?” Schwartz added that he would meet with Johnson “any time, any place.”
The Jets turned down that contract proposal, and Johnson said Monday he was not optimistic a deal could get done before the season. He also told 1050 ESPN New York that the gap between the sides is “insurmountable.”
“If we’re really trying to be dealmakers and you’ve got everybody’s interest at the best heart,” Ryan said, “then let’s do it this way. I bet it gets done if we do it that way.”
“As I said at the start of training camp, our offer to Darrelle Revis conveyed that we are flexible on how the guaranteed money is structured, including the areas of signing bonus, roster bonus and option bonus,” Tannenbaum said in a statement Tuesday night. “This situation revolves around a fundamental disagreement in total compensation.”
“That was a rough 5 hours I spent,” he said. “I was sitting back, saying, ‘You couldn’t pay me enough to be a general manager of a team.’ There’s no way. I mean, it was frustrating for me and I was just there for the one 5-hour period. I almost quit.”
Meanwhile, the team insists it will press on with its Super Bowl hopes whether Revis reports or not.
