Darrelle Revis is getting ready to show up for training camp.

A league source confirmed the N.Y Jets’ All-Pro cornerback expects to report with the rest of his teammates in Cortland, N.Y, instead of hold out in a contract dispute for the 2nd time in 3 summers.

Revis said last month during minicamp that he was uncertain if he would report for training camp while trying to find the Jets to rework the $46 million, 4-year contract he signed in 2010.

Revis would’ve forfeited a $1 million reporting compensation by not showing up. He would’ve been fined $30,000 per day, according to the new CBA. Also, the Jets could’ve gone after the $1 million roster bonus that was paid to Revis in March. He’s due to make $7.5 million this year – a $4.5 million base, the $1 million roster bonus, plus the $1 million reporting payout and a $1 million workout bonus he’s already been paid.

During a youth football hospital in his hometown of Aliquippa, Pa, Revis related “I do not know” if he is going to be at training camp and added: “That’s up to (GM) Mike Tannenbaum.”

But Revis has made a decision to attend camp, which the press had earlier reported, citing someone who spoke on condition of anonymity because the call had not been revealed. Scores

The 27 years old Revis, generally considered to be the best cornerback in the NFL, is due to earn $13.5 million during the next 2 years after the contract was front-loaded with $32.5 million in the first 2 years.

While Revis tried to reflect contract talk in the offseason, saying at one time that he was “cool” with his current agreement, it is thought the cornerback thought the team promised it might re-visit the situation this year.

Jets coach Rex Ryan claimed that he was expecting Revis to report to camp on time. “If he’s not, then it’s my job to coach,” Ryan announced.

It would appear Ryan won’t have to worry about missing the cornerstone of his defense, as he did 2 years back when Revis’ holdout was a primary story line in the team’s appearance on TV show.”

After an argumentative 36-day holdout, Revis and his agents concluded with the New York Jets on a 4-year agreement.

“This is an intermediate step to what we hope is a complete career of Darrelle as a Jet,” Tannenbaum announced at the time, “for him to retire a Jet, for him to hopefully go to the Hall of Fame one day as a Jet and for him to be in our ring of honor.”

One major obstruction in the contract could have helped Revis make his call. If he skipped camp, the prevailing deal would be automatically extended by three years. The daily fines for not being at the mandatory camp and the potential public comeback might have also played a role.

Revis, drafted No. 14 overall by New York in 2007, has been selected to 4 straight Pro Bowls and has 18 interceptions in 5 seasons.
