Darrelle Revis: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Revis was released by the Buccaneers earlier Wednesday to clear cap space, but as expected, had little trouble finding a new team. After former Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib signed a massive deal with the Broncos on Tuesday, New England required a replacement at the position and pulled off a major coup in signing Revis. The five-time Pro Bowler recorded 50 tackles (43 solo) and two interceptions in Tampa Bay last season, but perhaps more importantly, did not miss a game following an ACL tear two games into the 2012 season. At 28 years old, Revis remains one of the league's elite cornerbacks and will now take direction from defensive-minded head coach Bill Belichick.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)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 free to hit the open market, there should be no shortage of interest in the 28-year-old cornerback, especially now that he's further removed from the ACL injury that ended his 2012 season with the Jets in September.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Revis' contract has a unique structure that includes minimal guaranteed money and a $16 million cap hit each season. He recovered from a torn ACL and returned to elite form in 2014, yet the Bucs are reportedly still not interested in bringing him back at that price. Revis probably won't attract much interest with his odd contract but would instantly become the top available free agent, if the Bucs release him. This is a huge blight on the resume of former Tampa Bay general manager Mark Dominik, who was fired in December. Dominik gave up a first-round draft pick for Revis, then agreed to a deal ensuring that the star cornerback would have a tenuous contract situation each offseason.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
