Revis, the subject of trade talks, will receive the money later in the National Football League season, ESPN said, citing his contract. He also has a $1 million workout bonus in late June and a $1 million reporting bonus in late July in his contract.
The 27-year-old All-Pro selection played only two games last year before tearing a knee ligament. He has been seeking a contract worth $16 million annually.
The Jets announced yesterday that they have re-signed unrestricted free agent kicker Nick Folk and signed guard Willie Colon and defensive linebacker Antonio Garay.
Folk joined the Jets as a free agent in 2010 after being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. In 94 games, Folk has converted 134-of-172 field goal attempts and all 242 point-after-touchdown tries. Last year, he hit 21-of-27 field goals and all 30 PAT attempts last year.
Colon spent the last seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has started all 62 games in his career.
Garay, a sixth-round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2003, has played the last four seasons for San Diego. Garay has started 28-of-56 career games, accumulating 164 tackles and nine sacks. Last year, he had 17 tackles and one sack in eight games.
