It’s been a long-time since the New England Patriots had a shutdown cornerback on their roster, and they finally have one in former New York Jets star Darrelle Revis.
NFL cornerbacks have more confidence than most athletes. These 6 NFL cornerbacks think they’re the best at their position.
The Jets head coach delivered quote after quote on Tuesday, sounding as confident as ever after finishing last season with a surprising 8-8 record.
The Jets and general manager John Idzik should be able to see the handwriting on the wall. The Patriots’ way is either dead or dying. Their time at the top of the division is running out.
The Jets made a big splash Wednesday night by signing free-agent wide receiver Eric Decker. Thursday wasn’t as kind to GM John Idzik. And Friday hasn’t been much better.
This could be the most fertile NFL free agent market in history. Just off the cuff you can summon a Pro Bowl roll call. And the Jets have signed … Eric Decker, a second-tier receiver.
If you thought Revis landing with Bill Belichick and the rival Patriots was bad, that’s nothing compared to what could end up being a long-term nightmare.
Revis Island is relocating again. And the hottest rivalry in the AFC East just got a whole lot more interesting.
Are you ready for Dee Milliner and whoever manning the corners of the Jets’ secondary? Probably not.
Might a Darrelle Revis reunion in East Rutherford be on the horizon? Buckle your seat belts, folks.
Teams are “exploring” the market for Revis and “rival executives believe a deal could be possible,” Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported.
This year was so packed with gigantic stories that we had to add a whopping 13 honorable mentions. And believe us, those had to be narrowed down, too.
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout (in 2010). It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
Revis says on Twitter that he’s happy enough making $16 million per year with the winless Buccaneers compared to the (winning) alternative.
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a playoff team. For those who cling to the belief that the Jets defense is worthy enough to keep them competitive in every game, think again.
