New York Jets owner Woody Johnson needs Darrelle Revis to build a winner. It's time to open up the checkbook.

Darrelle Revis is more concerned with being the highest paid player at his position than he is with helping the New York Jets contend for a Super Bowl. Kudos to the Jets for not folding to his selfish demands.

Guaranteed contracts, like those that exist in other major professional sports, would benefit NFL players and owners and eliminate rookie contract holdouts.

NFL's uncertain financial future has players, agents and owners waiting for someone else to take the plunge before signing a rookie contract. Even if it takes longer than usual, the deals will get done by the start of the season.

While Cleveland Cavaliers fans would love to keep LeBron James in town with the power of the NFL's franchise tag, it's that singular factor that most greatly differentiates the NBA's wide open free agent market and the far more restrictive NFL.

Fewer free agency restrictions in the NFL would allow the league to capitalize on the type of publicity storm currently swirling around LeBron James and the NBA's free agent class.
