Big NFL Holdout and Their Disputes Close To Over!


Darrelle Revis

With the regular season starting next week for all 32 NFL teams and late cuts being made, there had been official word around 12 am EST that Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets end there 35-day holdout that began on August 1st.

With the big season opener soon approaching against the Baltimore Ravens, Jets Coach Rex Ryan and Jets Owner Woody Johnson flew to South Beach, Florida to talk with the then holdout Darrelle Revis.

Both teams came to an agreement for a deal worth $46 million and $32 million of it being guaranteed.

As Rex Ryan stated way back at the start of training camp, Revis would be the starter as soon as he returned.

The question is, if he is in football shape to play? I guess we will have to wait until September 13th against the Ravens for that to be answered.

Vincent Jackson

Also, there is still a big name holdout left for us to talk about, with that being WR Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers.

A few weeks ago during the preseason the Chargers had given the Seattle Seahawks and possibly one or two other teams the rights to talk to Jackson for some sort of deal to be made.

Earlier today there had been reports that one of the teams the Chargers gave right to talk to Jackson had made a deal with him in which both sides agreed but it end up being negated by San Diego.

The Chargers reported that all trade talks with undisclosed teams have come to an end because they had reached an impasse over trade compensation with the undisclosed team.
