Revis Holding out; Romo's Arm Sore

The New York Jets reported for training camp with high hopes -- and without perhaps their best player.

All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis is holding out while locked in a contract dispute with the team. And there's no telling how long he might stay away.

"Darrelle and his family were extremely deliberate with the decision-making process," agent Neil Schwartz told the Associated Press on Sunday. "Obviously his actions speak far louder than words."

Revis didn't show for the team's conditioning test Sunday morning at the Jets' training facility in Florham Park, N.J. He officially became a holdout when he missed the team's first meeting at 5:30 p.m. in Cortland, N.Y.

Revis is to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, making him one of the lowest-paid defensive backs on the team this season. He wants to be the league's highest-paid cornerback, a distinction that belongs to Nnamdi Asomugha, who signed a three-year, $45.3 million extension last off-season.

Romo's arm sore: Tony Romo hit an expected stage after nine days in training camp. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has a sore right throwing arm.

"I've got to watch it just because you don't want it to stay like that for an extended period of time," Romo said after practice Sunday. "We started today just watching it a little bit."

He said it is nothing to worry about.
