When the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots visit President Barack Obama in the White House, an honor reserved for teams that win a major sports championship, a Jet will be tagging along.
Oh, the dangers of social media. On Sunday, someone using Darrelle Revis’ Instagram account got into it with Patriots fans.
These AFC East rivals are cornering the market on vindictiveness. New England previously filed tampering charges against Jets owner Woody Johnson for speaking about Darrelle Revis while he was under contract.
The NFL is in the process of deciding if the Jets tampered with Darrelle Revis or if the Patriots are just having a problem digesting a nice helping of sour grapes.
While we are still in the middle of March and have not thrown the NFL Draft into the equation yet, the difference between the Patriots and their division rivals is quite a bit less than it was at the end of last season.
This is where “Magic Mike” can earn his way into Jets lore. If he succeeds, and in a few years the Jets take off for lands not seen in many decades, then I’ll believe anything is possible.
Revis — who signed a five-year, $70 million contract to return to the Jets — will earn $14,024,212 per season. What’s the catch, you ask? Check it out.
The sequel’s on: Revis and Cromartie. Batman and Robin: Part II. Add Buster Skrine and Marcus Gilchrist to the mix and the Jets could have a serious no-fly zone in 2015.
He’s not as sexy as Revis, for sure. But sometimes the smaller offseason moves can affect a unit as profoundly as the big ones.
Cromartie, who turns 31 in April, returns to the Jets after one season with Arizona, where he played for then-defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who is now New York’s coach.
Gang Green may be the team of the day, but you can bet on Big Blue being the team of the year.
Darrelle Revis is back where he started, and he wants to make good on his vow. That means trying to deliver a Super Bowl title to the Jets.
The Jets are in a perilous place. Fresh faces on the sideline and inside the GM suite, some cap space, a new attitude and, perhaps, altitude.
In honor of Darrelle Revis returning to the Jets, here are 10 notable players (some more than others) who came back to their New York roots.
Forever feeling cut off at the knees, the Jets fan is walking a little taller this day.
