Although Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets are at odds over the star cornerback's contract, Revis will have plenty of incentive to attend the team's voluntary workouts.

A clause in Revis' contract requires him to participate in voluntary workouts in order to receive bonus money, according to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.

Revis, who is entering the final year of a four-year, $46-million contract, is expected to report to the team's offseason conditioning program when it begins on April 15. If he does not report, it would cost him $3 million, according to Cimini.

From the report:

When Revis renegotiated his contract in 2010, following his second holdout in three years, he agreed to a clause that requires his attendance in all offseason activities -- even non-mandatory workouts, sources said.

If Revis doesn't participate in approximately 80 percent of the workouts, he will forfeit not only a $1 million workout bonus, but two other bonuses -- a $1 million roster bonus (triggered March 17, but payable at a later date) and a $1 million reporting bonus at the start of training camp.

They're tied together, providing significant financial motivation to attend. It was the Jets' way of making sure Revis stays on his best behavior, an aspect of his four-year, $46 million contract that was kept relatively quiet -- until now.

The Jets plan to have Revis, 27, abide by the requirement, even though he is still rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered in October. The team has made the four-time Pro Bowler, available in trade talks throughout the offseason.
