    Cool ...Revis likes new island, ready to 'take care' of Jets ~ ~ ~

    Darrelle Revis threw up his hands, shook his head and chuckled, gesturing to indicate that he bore absolutely no responsibility for the act.But the new Tampa Bay Buccaneers star had to admit that it was a striking image.A fan showed up at the New York Jets' preseason home opener on Aug. 17, wearing an old, doctored-up Revis jersey.The nameplate above the No. 24 on the green Jets jersey, aided by masking tape and a black marking pen, read: Refund. Images of the stinging message to send to Jets management got national media play.

    "That was not directed toward me," Revis told USA TODAY Sports, standing in a hallway outside the locker room at One Buc Place recently. "It was towards management. They have to deal with that. Not me."The Jets dealt Revis, 28, arguably the NFL's best cornerback, for a first- and conditional fourth-round (it could become a third-round choice) draft picks in April.And money, albeit not in the sense of a ticket-buyer looking for an exchange, was undoubtedly part of the equation.The Bucs, trying to improve a pass defense that ranked last in the NFL in 2012, granted Revis his wish to rank among the league's highest-paid players, signing him to a six-year, $96 million contract just the type of megadeal the Jets had no stomach for.

    Now look who's headed back to MetLife Stadium for a big comeback appearance on multiple levels Sept. 8.Revis is expected to make his return from a torn ACL in the regular-season opener against his former team. The football gods must have quite the sense of humor.

    At least the Jets traded him to a blase franchise that we only have to potentially play once every 4 years.
    Cant wait until Revis holds them over a barrel and wants to renegotiate his deal again.

    A terrific player - one of the best ever at his position - but no longer a Jet, so of little interest.

    Best of luck to you personally with your return from injury, Darrelle, but may your team fail spectacularly in week 1.

    I'll give him his due as the best in the game, at this time. However, the Jets always paid him fairly in my opinion. He could have stayed and been loved and gone down as one of the greatest Jets of all time. The money wasn't enough so have fun with a team going no where in sunny Florida.

    If the guy loved us back it could've been epic. I miss him on the field but for better or worse his uncle Sean Gilbert (who sat out a year over money) made sure he was a mercenary from day 1 in this league...maybe it's the smart way to go but it's sterile and a little soulless and certainly actually makes me a small bit relieved this HOFer in his prime plays for a different team.

    And when we do play him in a couple of weeks he most likely will not be 100%. He will not be a Buc 4 years from now. He must prove his point in game 1 and that's it.

    He better be ready.. If the best cb in NFL can't shut down jets receiving corps he came back too soon ha.. Even if Holmes actually plays, it's gonna take him a few games to dust rust off.. He's not going to push himself too hard too soon we all know that.

    Tampa is going to find out eventually that paying 16mil to a CB, even if he is one of the 5 best players in the game, is not worth it.

    Give him 2 years and the Bucs will want to add upfront $ to his 16 mill per year contract to help out the team and he will ask for a raise and hold out and before you know it, Revis will MIA for the season opener. Dude's not capable of being satisfied. SEE YA!!!!

    Well not $1 of that contract is guaranteed so when they decide revis isn't worth that they can cut him.. Unless another team is willing to pay it, Tampa can always sign him to a cheaper deal if revis gets comfortable there.. Never understood why MT would give guys guaranteed deals when there was no reason to.. There was no bidding war for Sanchez and Holmes.. Both would have been cut in jan and jets would have had some very nice cap room to work with and could have signed guys far greater talent than Holmes and Sanchez definitely..

    No practice AT ALL to speak of yet... Hmm... Why does that sound familiar for Revis?!

    He goes out of the JETS game on Sept 8 with a Hamstring.

    It's what he does best.

    This was the best move for the Jets. Cro is playing well and unless the Jets are inches from a Super Bowl, it's draft picks/money better spent elsewhere. My only question is whether some of that money is going to be spent on offense. It seems that offense has been second fiddle under Rex. I understand and agree with making a strong defense but you've got to have some balance.

    Isn't the best CB in football kind of meaningless in the WC offense?
