Why Jets Owner Woody Johnson Reportedly Feels Darrelle Revis Betrayed Him

Remember the time the New York Jets were fined $100,000 for tampering because they wanted to bring Darrelle Revis back so badly? Yeah, that reportedly isn’t working out so hot anymore.

A report surfaced Wednesday that the All-Pro cornerback, who’s having a down year for the 3-8 Jets, doesn’t want to play anymore. But that might not be a loss for New York because Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reported Thursday that Jets owner Woody Johnson might not want Revis to play anymore, either.

“A Jets source indicated the team may not offer cornerback Darrelle Revis a chance to take a pay cut this offseason, even if he was willing to accept one,” Cole said. “Owner Woody Johnson pushed hard for the team to bring back Revis in 2015 but was warned by some people in the organization not to bring back Revis. Johnson has become upset with the way Revis has performed this season, feels betrayed by him and may not want Revis back at any cost.”

Of course, these are reports, and that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s exactly what’s going on in the Jets organization. But having more bad news than good coming out from behind the scenes certainly doesn’t bode well for the Jets.
