Revis ready to return to action for Jets

Darrelle RevisIt looks like the Jets will have Darrelle Revis back on the field this week.

Coach Rex Ryan started his Wednesday media session by announcing that Revis has been cleared for full contact and that he would be practicing fully on Thursday for the first time since suffering a concussion in Week One against the Bills. Assuming there isn’t any setback in the next two days, it’s a good bet that Revis will be lining up opposite the Dolphins on Sunday.

“There’s only one Darrelle Revis. It’s hard not to smile when he’s out there,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

We’re guessing that Joe Philbin, Ryan Tannehill and Brian Hartline are a little less enthused by the news. Read more…

Revis probably won’t re-sign with Jets

Darrelle RevisAccording to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the relationship between the New York Jets and the agents for cornerback Darrelle Revis is in bad shape and there’s a chance that he won’t re-sign with them when he becomes a free agent in 2013.

“This tempest figures to nix any chance of Revis being a “Jet for life,” as he tweeted in mid-July. Sure, Revis has two years remaining on the deal the Jets gave him in 2010. Between this season and next, he’ll make $14 million, the final seasons of a four-year, $46 million extension,” wrote Cole. “Revis can’t be franchised when this deal is done. So once the 2013 campaign ends, Revis will be 28 and ready to hit the open market. Based on the fractured relationship between the Jets and Revis’ agents, it’s hard to imagine things going well.”

“As a Jets source put it this week, ‘You work on the things you can fix.’ The Jets aren’t working to fix this situation now,” reported Cole.

The problem with the Jets is that they’re not run like a first class organization and Revis should do himself a favor and get out as quickly as he can. Read more here…

 

Jets rookie Demario Davis impresses Revis

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was asked who was making an impression regarding leadership in the locker room, and the All-Pro defender pointed to Demario Davis.
It’s not unusual that a linebacker might take a lead role on a defense, but what makes this unique is that Davis is a rookie, and not only a rookie, but a third-round pick.

But, according to the New York Post, Revis says Davis exemplifies leadership even early in his Jets tenure.

“He’s vocal,” Revis said. “You don’t frown on that. You accept that. He still has a lot of things to learn. But just to have those leadership qualities, you can tell where he came from. You can tell he was a leader in college.”

In an interview in March, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis called Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a jerk. With some time to reflect on that comment, Revis isn’t backing down. “I gave my honest opinion,” Revis said today, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “It’s just how I felt. That’s how I feel. I feel that people let him slide when he says his smart remarks [about] certain things. He says comments about us.” Read more here…
