Revis' agent: 'absence will be deafening'

ESPNNewYork.com reporter Rich Cimini is on the scene at SUNY Cortland and has a story about cornerback Darrelle Revis, who didn't check in at New York Jets training camp.

RevisRevisRevis officially is a holdout, and it sounds like he's prepared to wait a while.

Revis didn't show for his conditioning test at 10 a.m. Sunday, but he wasn't considered a holdout until he failed to attend a 5:30 p.m. mandatory team meeting. The first practice will take place Monday morning.

A league source informed Cimini that Revis is resolute in his desire for a new contract. Revis, known as the NFL's top cover corner, will make $1 million this year

"We were hoping Darrelle wouldn't have to go down this path," agent Neil Schwartz told Cimini. "He and his family were extremely deliberate in this decision making process.

"Darrelle Revis' actions will speak louder than words. And his absence will be deafening."

Revis faces fines of $16,000 each day until he reports. Cimini reported Revis waived a guarantee for $20 million in salaries in 2011 and 2012 by failing to show up on time.
