Three weeks after saying he’s satisfied with his deal, NY Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis fueled a new round of speculation by refusing to guarantee he’s going to report for the start of training camp.

“I don’t know,” Revis declared after the Jets’ OTA practice, becoming testy. “That’s all I’m letting you know. I don’t know if I am or I’m not.”

Coach Rex Ryan claimed he expects Revis to be in Cortland, N.Y, on July 26, reporting day.

“I believe Revis will be, yes,” announced Ryan, who declined to explain on the matter.

This has been an on-again, off-again matter since April, when Revis announced he might not show up for training camp. He’s done it before — he missed the 2010 preseason as a result of an acrimonious holdout — and another potential conflict appeared to be gaining momentum.

Revis has 2 years and $13.5 million remaining on the contract he renegotiated 2 years ago. He earned $32.5 million over the 1st two years of the agreement, with sources indicating he would like to maintain that average over a new, long term deal.

But Revis latterly downplayed his desire for a new contract, announcing he’s “cool” with his existing contract.

“I signed it 2 years ago,” Revis expounded. “I’m not unhappy about nothing at all.”

The Jets appear dead set against giving Revis a new contract, so it’s quite possible the All-Pro cornerback had deserted his hope for another renegotiation.

“Here we are going with the contract questions,” Revis said, smiling. “I’m here and I’ll be playing. I’m getting ready for this season; that’s all I can do. Anything with my contract, we’ll handle that in times to come. At this time, I should get prepared for this year.”

When asked whether the deal matter is history, Revis bristled, announcing he already had made his feelings clear.

“Whatever you need to write, I’m telling you I’m preparing for the season,” he announced. “If something lingers, you’ll find out. It will be in the papers.”

Asked point-blank whether he’ll show up on Day One of training camp in late July, Revis turned neutral. He declined to explain why.

In an interview Revis hinted his agents are endeavoring to address a new deal.

“I’m sure my representatives are doing the best they can to make it a long-term deal,” he claimed. “But, as of at the moment, I’m still in this deal.”

The two sides attempted to hammer out a long-term contract 2 summers back, eventually settling for a 1-year extension on top of the 3 years that stayed on his rookie contract. The new package was worth $46 million over 4 years. Baseball scores

At the time, it was called a “Band-Aid” agreement, with the 2 parts agreeing to chase a long term deal at a later time. When that later date might be is the obstacle.

The current deal has a clause that prohibits the Jets from employing the franchise tag. It also can include a provision that seemingly would dissuade Revis from holding out. If he’s a no-show for training camp, it triggers a 3-year extension, thru 2016, at relatively modest salaries.
