Rex Ryan makes plea to Darrelle Revis
By Tim Graham
New York Daily News beat writer Manish Mehta and ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini reported late Sunday night New York Jets coach Rex Ryan traveled to Florida this weekend to meet with estranged cornerback Darrelle Revis.
The Jets open their season on "Monday Night Football" against the Baltimore Ravens at the Meadowlands.
Cimini, citing two unnamed sources, adds the meeting took place Saturday and there has been no substantive progress in negotiations.
Revis has three years left on his contract. He's scheduled to make a base salary of $1 million, way below his value. But he also has been paid major bonus money already, collecting about $15 million through his first three seasons.
