Also, the Jets may be better off waiting to see is Revis ends up being suspended for the recent incident in which two men were knocked out in Pittsburgh, as this could void the remaining guaranteed money in his contract.
“There are some issues here and there’s a reason why they might want to wait, maybe even landing Darrelle Revis on the Commissioner Exempt list,” Rapoport said during an appearance on Good Morning Football. “If he is, let’s say found guilty or reaches a plea deal, if he is suspended, that $6 million may actually void in his contract because of a clause that involves failure to appear … so if the Jets wait a little bit, they may actually be able to recoup all of that $6 million if he is suspended. If they cut him right now, they then just pay him.”
- According to Katherine Terrell, the Bengals signed veteran CB Bene Benwikere t0 a one-year deal worth the league minimum of $690,000.
- Adam Caplan of ESPN mentions that the Raiders want to re-sign RB Latavius Murray, but he’ll have interest from other teams. In the end, Caplan believes this “could go down to the wire” for Murray and the Raiders.
Vikings free agent CB Captain Munnerlyn pointed to some comments made by Patriots HC Bill Belichick, who estimated his team plays nickel or dime 80 percent of the time as a good example of his value in this league.
“To see coach Belichick say that, I was pumping my fist,” Munnerlyn said, via ESPN.com. “They are finally realizing that it’s a big position. You’re playing nickel 80 percent of the time of the game. If teams game plan you, they might not do that; they might try to keep a linebacker out there, but this is a passing league. Everybody wants to throw the ball. Everybody wants to see the scoreboard light up so hopefully teams see that. [I’m] definitely hoping the Vikings see that because we play it a lot, I hope they value my position and value my talent and bring me back.”
Munnerlyn did, however, say that he would “love” to re-sign with the Vikings.
“I definitely get anxious, because I want to know what’s my next move,” Munnerlyn said. “I definitely would love to stay here [in Minnesota,] but at the same time, I know it’s a business. I know things can get a little tricky. Money does play a little issue, but at the same time, you want to be happy. If I’m back here, I’m definitely pulling for that. Hopefully, they bring me back.“
