The Jets' star cornerback, who could soon be an ex-Jet as trade talks surrounding Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers persist, arrives as the Hospital for Special Surgery wearing a Bulls cap and said, 'I'm all good,' as he entered the Manhattan hospital.
Darrelle Revis is back in New York — for now — and his knee is good to go.
The Jets star cornerback, who could be traded to the Buccaneers any day now, was cleared to run without restrictions by his doctor Monday after an MRI on his surgically repaired left knee came back clean, a source told the Daily News.
Revis arrived for the MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan at 9:25 a.m. Monday wearing a Chicago Bulls baseball cap.
The cornerback said, "I'm all good," before heading into an elevator to for his appointment with Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ team doctor, who surgically repaired Revis' left knee on October 16 after the Pro Bowl defensive back tore his ACL on Sept. 23 against the Dolphins.
Asked how the MRI went on their way out of the hospital, Revis' agent Jonathan Feinsod said, "good."
Even before Revis had arrived at the hospital, the Jets' offseason workout program was beginning some 35 miles away in Florham Park, N.J. Revis is expected to head to the Jets' team facility later Monday to join up with the team that he likely won't be playing with during the upcoming season.
Revis would prefer not to be in New York or New Jersey at the moment. The injured superstar had hoped to remain in Arizona, rehabbing at the Fischer Sports in Phoenix where he spent much of the offseason, instead of being under the same roof as GM John Idzik, who is trying to trade him.
But in this circumstance, Revis' contract — and the Jets — held him hostage. The cornerback would forfeit a $1 million roster bonus, a $1 million workout bonus and a $1 million bonus for reporting to training camp should he not complete 80% of the team's offseason workouts. The Jets have held firm on this issue, forcing Revis to come back to the Atlantic Health despite his injury situation and a potential trade.
Revis appears to be making strides in his rehab; last week on NFL Network, he was seen running on a treadmill.
Good to hear.one step closer to a trade.
I am hoping that this is why things have been stalling. The bucs simply wanted to see if his MRI is clean. 1st, 3rd and 5th coming our way.
Looks like they made him wear a Bulls hat, and a Dope sweat shirt too. Still with that ugly homeless man lookin beard, and people wonder why he has no brand.
The good news.
1. Mehta's sources are now a) unnamed and b) feinslob, the sleazy ambulance chaser which means all his former bigmouths aren't talking to him or in buffalo.
2. Hopefully Revis, Feinslob, Schwartz and Uncle Sean will ALL be on a plane to western Florida in a week or so
This could get done fast now. Very good news.
What about this?
If the Jets gave Revis a contract offering 12 million per year with TEAM incentives that could get him up to 16 million per year, would you go for that? Things like, if the defense ranks number 1 in the league, then you'll get a 1 million bonus. If the team makes the playoffs, you'll get a 1 million dollar bonus? If the team wins the SB, you'll get a 2 million dollar bonus and so on?
These are just for instances, but you get the point. So long as these incentives were hinged to TEAM success, would you be happy with that?
Right now the Jets have gotten the best news regarding Revis in the past 6 months. I wouldn't let him do a single drill or workout this week for fear of him getting even a blister. The clean MRI is a major chip for Idzik. My guess is that Tampa sweetens the pot a little and Idzik pulls the trigger. After the reports of that Tampa is willing to give up Idzik can't afford not to do the deal. Could you imagine the backlash if he gets hurt again this year playing for the Jets?
Revis is a great player. Nobody wants to trade a great player but sometimes it is necessary. Idzik has no allegiance or ties to Revis. He did not draft him, he wasn't the one who allegedly made promises to Revis. Idzik will make the best of a sh*tty situation. If he picks good players with those picks and the team improves nobody is going to be crying about trading Revis.
However, IMO TEAM incentives is what should be in every contract. NEVER should a player be given individual incentives. All that says to a player IMO is that if the rest of team tanks, but you do your job, you will get X amount of money. Football is a team sport. Players should be rewarded for the success of the TEAM.
Great. Grand. Wonderful.
Now complete the trade.
I believe there are already incentives in place if for instance a team wins the SB or makes the playoffs. But I think that each player gets an equal share.
