Revis was one of the Jets’ best players at the turn of the decade. That’s when they were in playoff discussion before they fell off the deep end. The defensive end had an All-Pro season in 2009 and decided he wanted more cash. Hard Knocks covered their training camp and received more drama than they expected.
The Jets initially failed to come to terms with him so he sat out for most of their training camp. Usually, head coaches understand the game and don’t allow it to them. But it visibly infuriated Rex Ryan who confronted Woody Johnson directly about the situation. Finally, the Jets gave Revis the extension that he wanted (via Over the Cap).
