Darrelle Revis expected to report to Jets camp on time

New York Jets Darrelle Revis is expected to report to the team's training camp July 26 with the rest of his teammates— thus avoiding his second holdout in three years.

A person familiar with the All-Pro cornerback told USA Today Friday that he expects Revis to arrive at the Cortland, N.Y. camp on time and begin working out with the team.

Revis previously expressed uncertainty about the status of his current contract and was looking for the Jets to re-do his deal.

Arguably the Jets' best player, Revis said last month he was not sure if he would report to training camp on July 26 unless the team made some changes in his four-year, $46 million dollar contract.  The contract hasn't changed so there's no telling why he changed his mind.

Revis is due to make $13.5 million over the next two seasons— including $7.5 million in 2012.  He made $32.5 million in salary and bonuses the last two years after renegotiating his contract a few days before the 2010 season.  The stubborn defensive back held out for 35 days and missed the entire Jets training camp that summer.

Widely considered the best cornerback in the NFL, Revis seems to pull this stunt every summer.  It's getting to be tiresome.  The Jets camp is already interesting enough with the Tebow/Sanchez saga and Rex Ryan's weight loss.
