Cornerback Darrelle Revis tells the Newark Star-Ledger he wants to retire as a New York Jet.
“I want to retire here,” Revis said in an interview Thursday. “I think Mike (Tannenbaum) knows that. I think Rex (Ryan) knows that. (The Jets) drafted me, they gave me a chance, so yeah, I want to be here and never play for another organization again. If they feel that, if Mike feels that I’m that type of person to be here, then they will compensate me. If not, then it’s the business of it.”
Of course, in order to retire as a Jet, Revis wants a contract extension that will keep him with the club for the duration of his career. Revis held out in 2010, and it is not out of the question that he could be AWOL when training camp opens this summer.
"People think I’m mad or unhappy. I’m not mad or unhappy,” Revis said. “It’s a thing where some things were said, and I think that’s what people are really focusing on. It was a Band-Aid type of contract, and they were going to redo it or renew it, and it hasn’t happened yet.”
