Revis not concerned about holdout backlash
Darrelle Revis said he doesn't care what fans think if he holds out for the second time in three years by not reporting to the New York Jets training camp.
Revis has been coy about whether or not he would report to the Jets camp this season, after his much-publicized holdout in 2010. Revis said he has already been down the road of a backlash, even telling the New York Daily News he got death threats the first time he held out.
"I don’t know if you looked at my Twitter,” he said. “I was getting death threats and everything. I’m getting stuff now on Twitter.”
Revis signed a four-year$46 million deal in 2010 that ended his holdout then. That deal was frontloaded, and Revis is scheduled to make $13.5 million for 2012 and 2013, which means he could want a bigger payday yet again from the Jets.
