After a few days of publicly bashing each other, the Jets and Darrelle Revis' representatives have released a joint statement saying they will keep the ongoing contract talks private.

"Both parties have had conversations to clear the air and will continue to negotiate with the hopes of reaching an agreement," Revis' agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, and the Jets announced. "From this point forward, all discussions regarding these negotiations will remain confidential."

Revis' agents called the Jets "blatant liars" in recent days and owner Woody Johnson recently said he doesn't expect Revis to play for the Jets in 2010.

Head coach Rex Ryan proposed a meeting between Revis, his agents and the entire Jets organization, players included. He even offered to cancel practice for it.

There still appears to be a wide gap between what Revis wants and what the Jets are offering, but the two sides may be headed in a more productive direction following the release of the statement.
