Most Jets fans are waking up to a report that was put out by the AP Jets Beatwriter Dennis Waszak Jr. that Darrelle Revis will be reporting to Training camp on time!

A person familiar with the decision said the New York Jets’ All-Pro cornerback expects to report with the rest of his teammates next Thursday in Cortland, N.Y., rather than hold out in a contract dispute for the second time in three summers. - Full Story Here
The night started when John Geiger, Darrelle’s marketing manager, put out a tweet asking where the best place to stay in Cortland would be. I, like some other Jets beat writers, put 2 and 2 together and took that tweet to mean that Revis would show up in camp. I wrote a story about it here.
The tweet was deleted and speculation was running rampant on twitter. Then Dennis broke the news around 1am (why was I still up, but I’m glad I was) that Revis WAS in fact not going to hold out!
I then was obviously excited and starting tweeting like a crazed maniac and John replied to one of my tweets that basically confirmed the news in my mind:
I’ve been saying on every post and podcast the last couple of weeks that from what I’ve been seeing (reading the tea leaves I call it) my gut started to tell me that there was no way that Darrelle was going to hold out. I’m never one to brag, but on this occasion, I love being right.
Jets fans can relax knowing a Revis holdout will not be one of the topics in training camp! Yes!
