NEW YORK — Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets have agreed to a new contract, ending the All-Pro cornerback’s holdout a week before the team’s season opener.
The team announced the agreement in principle early Monday morning, but released no contract terms.
Revis’ holdout began Aug. 1, when the team reported for training camp in Cortland. He was scheduled to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, but has said he wants to become the league’s highest-paid cornerback.
The Daily News reported Sunday night that coach Rex Ryan flew to Revis’ home in South Florida over the weekend to try to help get a deal done.
The Jets open their season next Monday night at home against Baltimore.
