Darrelle Revis is moving closer to getting back on the football field. Whether that’s with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
Each team is given the opportunity to hold 60 player interviews, and the Jets were one of nine teams to interview former USC quarterback Matt Barkley, according to a report.
“I’m hoping that I have the opportunity to work with the young man and help him with his on-field preparation and his off-field preparation,” Garcia told WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Thursday.
“(It’s a) serious organizational issue at the heart of the Jets’ culture,” one executive told Metro. “I’m not sure if, with all due respect, that what Mr. Johnson is saying adds up.”
Former Denver Broncos executive Ted Sundquist, who interviewed with the Jets for their vacant general manager position, reportedly said that team owner Woody Johnson said that Tim Tebow was “forced” on both him and team president Neil Glat.
As if they don’t have enough public relations problems, bringing in Vick — with his criminal dog-fighting history and a growing injury background that now includes a major concussion — would send the media scurrying for their Twitter accounts.
Vick and Mornhinweg had issues this past season, according to a report, and neither the four-time Pro Bowler nor the newly-hired offensive coordinator have any desire to continue their working relationship with the Jets.
Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he’s pretty much a player without a team — likely to be released by the Jets after one frustrating season.
Speaking at his introductory press conference on Thursday, GM Dave Caldwell said, “I can’t imagine a scenario where (Tebow) will be a Jacksonville Jaguar.”
“I don’t have any regrets,” Tebow said. “I believe everything happens for a reason. I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future, and in that there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort.”
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel for Tim and how it went down,” Jets defensive end Mike DeVito told WFAN co-hosts Evan Roberts and Joe Benigno. “… I think (if) you put Tim in there, I think we win games. I really believe that.”
The two players are among the Jets’ biggest uncertainties heading into next season, with Sanchez coming off a miserable year and Revis recovering from a serious knee injury while also having a sticky contract situation.
I’ve collected a lot of memories in three seasons covering the team for WFAN. Here’s a list of my five favorite moments.
Greg McElroy has a concussion — which he didn’t reveal until Thursday — and will be replaced by Mark Sanchez as the Jets’ starting quarterback in the season finale at Buffalo on Sunday.
Tim Tebow deserved this opportunity to start on Sunday but instead fear ruled the decision. Fear of what Tebow in his unconventional style might do. Fear that Jets fans will see the fraud of Sanchez and clamor for more Tebow.
