FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets center Nick Mangold, who said last week there was a 50/50 chance he would skip the team's mandatory minicamp because he's unhappy with his contract, reported Monday morning for the start of the three-day camp.

Mangold, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, is due to make $3.3 million in the final year of his rookie contract. As of late last week, the Jets hadn't made an offer, according to Mangold.

"We'll put it at 50/50 you never know," Mangold said last Thursday. "Got to get through the weekend and make our decision on Sunday."

The Jets are also negotiating with cornerback Darrelle Revis, who wants to be the highest paid at his position in the NFL.
