General manager wants Revis to retire a Jet

General manager Mike Tannenbaum told ESPN radio that he expects Darrelle Revis to retire a Jet, indicating that a long-term contract could be coming for the cornerback soon.

From the New York Post:

“Our expectation is he’ll retire a Jet many years from now,” Tannenbaum told ESPN Radio.

“We have reached out to his agents and we’ll see where that process goes,” Tannenbaum said.

The Jets are saying all the right things, but until they draw up a contract and Revis signs it, then what Tannenbaum says means nothing. Things look good, but contract negotiations are always sticky, especially with the threat of a lockout coming in 2011.

That said, it appears that a long-term deal is likely to be signed before the season, which is what Revis wants. The Jets really have no choice but to pony up for him, seeing as how he has established himself as the best cover corner in the game.
