NEW YORK (AP) _ New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, one of the NFL‘s highest-paid players among non-quarterbacks the past several years, has fired his longtime agents.

ESPN first reported Thursday that Revis had parted ways with Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, the cornerback’s agents since his rookie year in 2007.

Schwartz and Feinsod negotiated a few huge deals for Revis, who has made $101 million in his career, according to Spotrac.com. He is due to make $17 million in guaranteed money this season.

Both agents confirmed the split in emails to The Associated Press, but the reasons for Revis’ move was not immediately certain. “Jonathan and I wish him the best of luck,” Schwartz wrote in an email.

Revis returned to the Jets last year after two seasons away with the New England Patriots, and signed a five-year, $70 million deal that included $39 million in guarantees.
