Here are some random quick hits for June 22th with my quick thoughts on each topic.
Revis says Tanny will determine if he is in camp.
I’m stoked for August 4th….
….and tonight with Curtis Martin in the HOUSE.
Hit 1: It’s up to the GM?! Really?
Darrelle Revis continues to say he has not made up his mind about holding out when training camp rolls around for the New York Jets.
Revis, though, did offer a little more insight into his thought process Thursday while attending a youth football clinic in Aliquippa, Pa.
“I don’t know,” Revis told the Beaver County Times when asked whether he would report to camp on time. “That’s up to Mike Tannenbaum (Jets general manager). I really don’t know.” – Via SI.com
I don’t know about you, but I get this very bad feeling that if GM Mike Tannenbaum doesn’t make a move then Revis WILL BE HOLDING OUT. And that’s what I believe will happen. Revis feels that he was told that the deal he was signing was a band-aid for 2 years (the contract says 4) but an understanding that they would go back to the table. What, did they shake hands, or did Tanny give Revis a wink and his word?
It’s a shame that if Revis holds out, this will dominate camp yet again. Yes, even with Tebow there.

Hit 2: I’m getting stoked about August 4th
Class of 2012 enshrinee Curtis Martin recently sent a large collection of memorabilia to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Included among the mementos were helmets and jerseys the running back wore during his college playing days at the University of Pittsburgh and during his NFL career with the New England Patriots and New York Jets.
Martin also sent a personal artifact along with the football mementos. The Bible from which Martin drew constant inspiration throughout his football career is now also part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s collection. – Via HOF
As much as we rag on the media for their coverage of the New York Jets, when there is an event OTAs, Jets fans want access to every practice. The next best thing was to read the players' tweets.
