Earlier Sunday, I had talked about the distinct possibility of the New York Jets going into the 2010 NFL season without their top man in their secondary, cornerback Darrelle Revis. The general manager of the team, one Mike Tannenbaum, said this himself. I would suspect that Jets fans were probably torn about whether Revis would rejoin the team.
Well Jets fans, you can let out that collective sigh of relief.
According to Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press, Revis and the Jets have agreed on a new contract, according to an announcement made by the team on Monday (Sunday if you’re on the West Coast).
Perhaps you can give Jets head coach Rex Ryan an assist in getting this done as he personally flew to Revis’ home in south Florida over the weekend and pleaded his case.
By the way, as of this posting, no specifics on the new deal were available. But one thing is for certain: Revis signed a new contract and will report to camp fairly soon. It appears that the New York Jets all of a sudden become relevant in the AFC East, all because a cornerback signed on the dotted line. A cornerback names Darrelle Revis.
