Jones sided with Revis.
"He gets $32 million guaranteed," Jones said. "He avoids going to training camp, and we're going into a lockout with an uncertain labor situation, and he will get the money that he wanted to hold out for. He didn't have to do it for a full year like his Uncle Sean Gilbert did before [with the Washington Redskins in 1997]. ... I can't see how he's anything but the winner."
Bayless viewed the situation much differently.
"Darrelle Revis lost badly here," Bayless said. "When the GM of the Jets [Mike Tannenbaum] says 'It was a great deal for Darrelle but a responsible deal for the Jets,' that's advantage: team. And remember: If it was all about holding out for Nnamdi Asomugha kind of money, I think he lost terribly.
"The fact that Rex Ryan flew down and talked to Darrelle in Miami had to really set off his agents. I can't believe they signed off on that because I think it gave the team a big advantage."
