Jets CB Darrelle Revis failed to report for training camp Aug. 1 and is willing to hold out indefinitely. While he is subject to being fined for each day he stays away from camp and waived $20 million in guaranteed salaries for 2011 and 2012 by not reporting, the All-Pro cornerback is hoping his absence will lead the Jets to cave in to his contract demands. Revis' agent, Neil Schwartz, and the Jets reportedly reopened talks about a new deal in the days leading up to camp, but word is the team did not make a contract offer during the discussions. Revis, who is due to make $1 million this year, is said to be seeking a deal that will pay him a higher annual salary than Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha. Asomugha is entering the second year of a three-year deal that pays him $28.6 million in the first two years.
