ESPN New York reports that the Jets plan to enforce language in the cornerback’s contract that requires him to attend the team’s offseason conditioning workouts in order to receive his bonus.
Revis has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee and training in Arizona this offseason, and it appears that he would prefer to finish his training in Arizona and avoid any awkward encounters at the Jets’ training facility. The Jets have been shopping Revis for the last two months and may trade him before or during the NFL draft on April 25.
Revis has $3 million riding on his attendance at the workouts, so it’s likely he will make an appearance.
According to the report, if Revis doesn’t participate in approximately 80 percent of the team’s workouts, he will forfeit a $1 million workout bonus, a $1 million roster bonus (triggered March 17, but payable at a later date) and a $1 million reporting bonus at the start of training camp.
Revis played in just two games last season before tearing his ACL in September.
