Come Sunday, it will have been 350 days since Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis played in an NFL game. Might head coach Rex Ryan and the offense test the ex-Jet’s rehabbed knee?
The Jets drafted Revis 14th overall in 2007, and he went on to receive four Pro Bowl berths in six seasons.
“Obviously, we know the kind of talent he is,” Rex continued. “All Jet fans know the kind of talent that he has.”
Revis tore his ACL in our third game of the season last year in what would turn out to be his last play for the Green & White. He landed on Injured Reserve, and we traded him to Tampa Bay in the days leading up to April’s draft.
Post-surgery, it’s possible that the cornerback may have lost a step in coverage, but he doesn’t think so.
“I’m very confident in the player I’ll be. I’ll be fine,” Revis told the New York media on Wednesday. “I’m ready to go.”
“If I had my way, he’d rest it one more week,” Ryan joked. “I think that’d be the best thing for him.”
Eighth-year veteran WR
“It’s my job. It’s what we get paid to do, play football,” he said, “and the season is around the corner and it would be really good to get out there and help the team compete as much as possible.”
Despite all of the Revis talk, third-year receiver
“We’re just focused on us,” No. 19 said. “They have a great secondary, but it’s football. It’s going to be a challenge week in and week out.”
Like Rex, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was also asked about the team’s game plan regarding Tampa Bay’s No. 24. His answer: “We’ll see.”
Regardless of whether he’s instructed to throw his way or not, rookie QB
“I can care less if he’s 100 percent,” Hill said. “If he’s going to be out there, we’re going to go 100 percent, so I hope he does also.”
Ready or not, here we come.
