Darelle Revis wants $20 million a year

All-galaxy cornerback Darrelle Revis reportedly wants $20 million.

No, I don't mean $20 million over the length of a multiyear contract, or in guarantees.

That's the figure National Football Post columnist Michael Lombardi reported Revis has requested to remain with the New York Jets. To be specific, Lombardi wrote Revis' desired contract "exceeds $20 million a year."

Shortly after ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini read this, he popped the eyeballs back into his head and noted in his blog that Revis' dream deal would be not only the richest contract for any cornerback, but also more than a franchise quarterback.

Peyton Manning's annual average is $14 million.

He'll probably get it too. I can't wait to see these teams struggle when the cap returns.

No way he will ever get that. He is under contract until 2012 and even then the franchise tag for wide receivers is around 10 million. He could be tagged for five years and still not make more than 20 million a season. He may be a great corner but he is no where close to the most important guy on the defense let alone the team. He will be 27 when his current contract ends and will likely get one big payday. If they decide to say he outplayed his rookie deal, they will lock him for five more years meaning he will be a Jet until 2017. By then he will be over 30 and rich but not as rich as he thinks he should be. Hard to feel sorry for him.

I agree that he's not worth even CLOSE to that much $$, but...

he definitely IS the most important player on that defense. he's the best defensive player in the league.

I mean, he has to support his family in this struggling economy.

What an A$$.

It is idiots like this that ruin the game. Every CB in the league will want a new contract. Richard Marshall will probably scream for at least 10mil.

Idk about that one, peppers left us for more money and went to a team worst off than us, while Revis plays for arguably the best defensive team in the league and could possibly win a ring this year. I doubt peppers will ever have a ring, the $$ is more important to him as a person and a player...

No he isn't. He had 54 tackles and 6 pics. Sure good numbers but the best he does it take away one player from the offense. Without a killer pass rush he would be good not great.

He's good, but he doesn't deserve Jake Delhomme money.

Revis's contract voids after this year since he reached certain percentage of plays. The Jets have the option to buy the last 2 years back (5M for 11, but 15M for 12) but going long term would be in better interests in case of a return of the cap.
