The offseason saga between the Jets front office and Darrelle Revis appears to have a happy ending. While the two sides have yet to work out a long-term contract, the All-Pro cornerback is planning to attend next week's training camp.

Jets fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

As per ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini a league source has confirmed that All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis will not stage a holdout during the team’s upcoming training camp. The four-time Pro Bowler will join his teammates on Thursday, July 26 in Cortland, N.Y., for the start of training camp.

Up until this point, Revis was non-committal about attending, leaving the door open for a possible contract holdout for the second time in three seasons. If Revis decided to holdout he would have forfeited a $1 million reporting bonus and triggered a provision in his contract that would have extended his current deal by three more years.

New York’s defensive back would have been docked $30,000 each day he failed to report and the Jets could have went after the $1 million roster bonus they paid him back in March. All things considered, Revis made the right choice for both himself and the team.

General manager Mike Tannenbaum intimated that this recent development could be a step in the right direction for Revis and the front office to finally come to terms on the parameters of a long-term deal. While nothing is imminent, Tannenbaum told reporters that he wants Revis to retire a Jet, be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall-of-Fame as a Jet and one day become a part of the Jets ring of honor.
