CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Jets owner Woody Johnson is not optimistic that a deal for All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis will be done by
the beginning of the regular season.

The Jets rejected an offer proposed by Revis' agents on Friday during a meeting at a diner in Roscoe. Johnson offered a stern,
"The answer's no," when asked Monday if he felt a deal could be done by Week 1.

Agents Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod met with general manager Mike Tannenbaum and director of football administration Ari
Nissim, offering a long-term contract to try to make some headway in the dispute.

Schwartz said they were waiting for a response, but Tannenbaum said both sides had a "pretty good sense" of where things stood
after the meeting.

According to Johnson, the sticking point remains "total compensation," as opposed to guaranteed money. The team will move forward with first-round pick Kyle Wilson and Antonio Cromartie as starters.

Wilson was the 29th pick of the first round out of Boise State. The Jets open their season on Monday September 13th against the Baltimore Ravens.  For the Jets complete schedule click here
