Jets statement on signing-bonus controversy
By Rich Cimini
Darrelle Revis' agents indicated Tuesday that the New York Jets' long-term contract proposal includes "not a single dollar" for a signing bonus.
GM Mike Tannenbaum, responding to that claim, issued the following statement:
"As I said at the start of training camp, our offer to Darrelle Revis conveyed that we are flexible on how the guaranteed money is structured, including the areas of signing bonus, roster bonus and option bonus. This situation revolves around a fundamental disagreement in total compensation."
