Revis Drives Naysayers out the Door

Metric Shows Age Doesn’t Hold Any Weight for the Jets’ All-Pro Corner


Darrelle Revis picked up right where he left off for the Green & White. In his first year back with the Jets, Revis accounted for the NFL's lowest completion percentage allowed for passes into coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. Standing at 46.5%, it's just another accolade for the seven-time Pro Bowler.

Revis ended the year with 9 PDs and 5 picks, one interception shy of tying his career high (2009). While the former AFC Defensive Player of the Year didn't surpass any personal records through the air, he managed to do so on the ground – scooping up four fumbles, adding to his career-best 9 takeaways.

Revis underwent offseason surgery in March to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist. While he is not expected to be on the field for Tuesday's start of mandatory minicamp, head coach Todd Bowles isn't worried.

"He's running, he's doing everything he's supposed to be doing and doing wrist exercise and he'll be ready when he's ready."
