Darrelle Revis: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Financial terms have not been disclosed, but Revis will return to the Jets after the Patriots declined his $20 million contract option for 2015. Revis turns 30 in July and is entering his ninth NFL season, but he re-established himself as one of the premier corners in the game in 2014, two years after tearing his ACL. However, opposing teams' hesitance to throw his way makes Revis a below-average IDP option, as he recorded a modest 47 tackles (41 solo), one forced fumble and two interceptions last season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)If they had, Revis would have been slated to count $25 million against the team's salary cap in 2015, so the move was not unexpected in the absence of a contract extension. Unless the two sides come to a new agreement before Tuesday afternoon, Revis is on track to hit NFL free agency, and while the Patriots would clearly like to bring him back, they'll have plenty of competition for his services in such a scenario.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Revis signed a two-year, $32 million deal with the Patriots in March, which includes a team option for the second year that includes a $12 million roster bonus and a hefty cap hit of $25 million. With those terms in mind, and given how much Revis has impressed the team with his skills thus far, it's no wonder that the Patriots are looking to work on his deal, with an eye toward keeping the shut-down cornerback around beyond 2014.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In his only season with the Bucs after signing a lucrative deal with the team, Revis recorded 50 tackles and two picks. Now that he's further removed from the ACL injury that ended his 2012 season, he's poised to anchor the Patriots' secondary while manning the team's left cornerback slot previously held by Aqib Talib.
Revis moves to Tampa Bay and the NFC South, home to pass-first offenses of New Orleans and Atlanta and their elite quarterback and wide receiver combos. Revis will look to bounce back off a knee injury that ended his 2012 season in September.
Minor hamstring issues aside, he'll be in full control of Revis Island again this season. While alone he's not a very valuable IDP player, on the defensive whole, his presence means a lot.
Revis will continue to be a shut down corner but due to the avoidance of his side of the field by quarterbacks, will not be much of an IDP factor
Revis might be the premier shutdown corner in the game today, but it's going to affect his takeaway stats - teams don't want to challenge him. Bottom line, he's far more valuable to the Jets than he is to IDP players.
Revis, who starts at left cornerback for the Jets, racked up 58 tackles and five picks in 2008, en route to a Pro Bowl selection.
Revis played well enough as a rookie to be locked in as a starting corner for the Jets in 2008. He collected three picks and 87 tackles in 2007. Revis should see improvements across the board as he continues to round into form.
He's pushing for a starting spot as a rookie, and we might see Revis on the punt-return team as well.
