If Revis is suspended or fined, the Jets can recoup his entire salary including the $6 million he was guaranteed for 2017. However, they won't know that until after the decision to cut him is made in all likelihood, especially with a roster bonus coming up in a few weeks.


Yeah that's what makes it unlikely. They could pay him the 2m and chase the 6 but it wouldn't be worth it.

We have to treat the whole Revis situation with respect, remember.


I do believe that if he is cut prior to the roster bonus and he is suspended in a few months, they could still look to recoup the money.


I hope that's the case but I think Cimini was on ESPN NY and said it's pretty unlikely he's suspended and the Jets would need to keep him on the roster in order to get that $6M back. If we cut him then we already determined to eat that $6M, can't remove it once he's cut.

Terroristic threats... GTFO. We should all be concerned when charges like that get thrown around like candy.


"I'll beat you to a bloody pulp"
"I'll kill you"

Examples of terroristic threats. The phrasing of the charge makes it sound more dramatic than it is.

See that's the problem. People hear terroristic and think it's like War on Terror, I'm gonna suicide bomb a building type thing. The charge refers to a violent threat.

Not even....

If TO can get snubbed for being hard to get along with, who knows?


...because TO's issues were football-related, and Revis' are not.


You honestly think voters are going to not take it into account because it was not "football-related"?


Yep.

It has more to do with the fact that a lot of those voters, just like a lot of fans, legitimately don't like Owens. I don't think anyone is going to hate Revis because he got in a fight. I doubt this hurts his chances.


Gonna comment on this bit, cause I agree.

TO isn't in the HOF because he embarrassed/disrespected Coaches and the old boy club. They don't care if you kill someone or what you do outside of football. Look at Irvin and Lewis as prime examples. As long as Revis didn't swing on dudes screamin' he wished it was Goodell or something, this won't hurt his chances for the hall.

Speaking of TO, has anybody stood up for him yet and said it's ridiculous that he isn't in the HOF yet? Personal vendettas should not keep you out.

Pretty much everybody has stood up for him, only a select few and some of those in that room have said he shouldn't get it in. Jerry Jones has stood up for him, Mariucci has stood up for him, McNabb has.

This won't impact Revis in one iota. It's off the field, so they don't take that into account. But like TO said, it's a flawed process and I'd be shocked if Randy Moss gets in next year.

BS. That's what they used to call assault.

It's basically a more egregious name for it.

But it's pretty much a violent threat

Right. I just don't like confusing that with something completely different. Revis is dumb and maybe dangerous at times, but he's not a terrorist. That's my problem with it.

This...

Terrorism is specifically mass violence, usually against people you never met or dealt with and isn't personal, but rather for political reasons.

Assault is usually violence against an individual or small group of people for personal reasons.

I highly doubt Revis is guilty of the former.

JLambert58, I won't put up with your wrongthink!
Reported!




But in seriousness. Would a criminal charge or conviction benefit the Jets in anyway with his pending release?


lol.

We have always been at war with Eastasia. (Who gets the reference?)

I would imagine it would constitute a violation of the NFL's conduct policy which would make it easy for the Jets to part ways with him. His arrogance and selfishness has been a double-edged sword. It probably drove him to be the best in the league and was also the impetus for his destruction.


just remember...BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU

I heard Revis might switch to safety? once he gets through all of this (possible suspension) is this the position he'll likely take on, or should he still be used as a corner?

I keep hearing that, but I don't think it's going to work. Revis excelled in press man coverage. This past year he played more off coverage and got burnt like every receiver he covered was equipped with a flamethrower. There's more to playing safety than just being a slow cornerback and I don't think he has those skills.

If everything sticks here I think this may end his career. Hall of Fame could be out of ? too for him. What a potential poor end to what was a good career.
