Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Making Darrelle Revis the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history shows that the Buccaneers are confident. But will their confidence pay off in the tough NFC South?
Former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis seems to be loving his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, much more than Gang Green.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth will miss the upcoming season with a torn Achilles tendon, and the team has signed two-time Super Bowl winner Lawrence Tynes as his replacement.
Sapp suggested that Michael Strahan was successful because he lined up against the opposition’s “worst lineman.”
According to multiple reports, the New York Jets have extended a minicamp invite to free agent tight end Kellen Winslow Jr.
Newest Jets Sheldon Richardson and Dee Milliner aren’t sweating the pressure of playing in New York.
The New York Jets are loading up on defense by taking Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the 13th overall pick in the NFL draft.
“I definitely feel like I haven’t gotten the truth,” Revis said. “Anyone can sit there and tell you to your face, ‘Yeah, you’re going to be a Jet.’ … I know it’s a lie.”
“Not (head coach) Rex (Ryan), not (general manager John) Idzik, not (owner Woody) Johnson, nobody contacted me,” Revis said. “They left me out of the loop, I guess you can say.”
It’ll all be on Cro — again — in 2013. And he’s not exactly happy about it.
If the GM digs up Vernon Gholston instead of Joe Namath in the draft, he’ll be pilloried, and probably unemployed before his contract expires.
Weeks of speculation about the star cornerback’s future ended Sunday when the Jets traded the three-time All-Pro to the Bucs in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this week’s NFL draft and another selection next year.
The speculation can soon be put to rest. Darrelle Revis and the Jets appear on the verge of parting ways.
Jets coach Rex Ryan seemed most interested in the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens not opening the season at home as the NFL released the schedule.
Revis has started to run again as he rehabilitates from a torn knee ligament while his future with the Jets remains uncertain.
