Darrelle Revis holds out from voluntary OTA

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, News, NFL

Darrelle Revis

It’s Offseason Training Activity time in pro football and Darrelle Revis is no longer participating in it with the New York Jets.  The NFL’s best cornerback had been attending OTAs before Thursday, which is due to his desire to re-work his current contract, which is a valid want from Revis’ camp.  He’ll be entering the fourth year of a six-year contract that Revis signed during his rookie season.  However, in that time, Revis has undeniably become the top cornerback in the league.  Nnamdi Asomugha of the Oakland Raiders is currently the top-paid corner at $15.2 million a year, an amount that Revis wants to surpass, not by a lot, but more than.  It’s possible that Revis could sit out training camp, which starts on August 1, but a deal should get done beforehand.  However, the crinkle in the negotiations could be the fact that the Jets need to re-sign other players.

True Predictions: Steelers, Eagles, Ravens and Jets Have Something to Play For

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL

Philadelphia Eagles The San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers held true last week. The New York Giants and Miami Dolphins proved disappointing. The Giants completely tanked and will miss the playoffs. I went 3-2 for the week. The season mark runs to 44-34. Selections for Week 17 are based on games in which both teams have something to play for (as best we can assess).

True Predictions:  So Much Good & Bad, Titans, and Patriots vs. Saints on MNF

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL

DescriptionWeek Eleven proved profitable for me as I went 5-1 and run the season record to 32-20. Two upsets: Oakland Raiders over the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs over the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t even selected to predict since I figured the also-rans would have no shot. But I did have the feeling that the one-win wonders, the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions, would deliver a close contest. A last second pass interference call in the end zone set up the Detroit victory. I got the expected wins by the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers. My lone loss was due to Vince Young leading the Tennessee Titans to their fourth straight victory in a hard-fought match-up with the Houston Texans. The Texans needed to show they could be contenders (against a 3-6 team), but it just was not to be.

True Predictions: Jets, Patriots, Tony Romo, NFL in L.A.

Tony Romo

Last week I went 3–2 with my predictions: The New York Jets have arrived early for both me and the New England Patriots. The Manning Brothers, Eli and Peyton, proved true to the pedigree with both leading great fourth quarter drives (I didn’t pick the New York Giants, but did pick the Indianapolis Colts) for the win.The Chicago Bears beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on a fourth quarter victory drive; I figured they’d want/need this one more.  Yes, I predicted that the Baltimore Ravens would beat the San Diego Chargers. Gotta love Norv Turner’s decision-making. USC head coach Pete Carroll would love San Diego, wouldn’t he? And he’s seen the old Teflon take some hits at USC, right?

Randy Moss
Randy Moss has a new home, and it’s in New England. On Sunday the Oakland Raiders traded Moss to the New England Patriots for a fourth round draft pick.
