Jets owner Woody Johnson isn't optimistic that his club will be able to reach a contract extension with holdout CB Darrelle Revis before the start of the regular season.

The Jets rejected the latest proposal from Revis' agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, after the pair had offered a long-term proposal to Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum and director of football administration Ari Nissim at a three-hour meeting at a diner Friday.

"Fundamentally, there really wasn't any change," Tannenbaum said, "and right now, we can't find something that makes sense for both sides, so we really don't have any progress."

Revis, who has missed nine days of practice through Monday, is scheduled to earn $1 million this season, the fourth year of a six-year rookie deal. However, he's asking to be paid more than Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha, who signed a three-year, $45.3 million contract a year ago.
