NY Daily News: The Jets’ star cornerback, who could soon be an ex-Jet as trade talks surrounding Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers persist, arrives as the Hospital for Special Surgery wearing a Bulls cap and said, ‘I’m all good,’ as he entered the Manhattan hospital.
Darrelle Revis is back in the Big Apple and apparently passing MRI tests. The Jets forced his hand by requiring him to report or he’d forfeit his $1M roster bonus. The good news here is that Revis passing an MRI with 10 days to go until the NFL Draft bodes quite well for John Idzik and the Jets who are shopping the All World Cornerback.
I am guessing that teams were waiting to see some positive results about Revis’ knee before getting too serious… or even that a deal in principal is in place with Tampa Bay, but it required Revis to pass an MRI. Things should start to heat up in the Revis trade arena… though Idzik keeps things far closer to the chest than his predecessor, so we will likely not know anything until its a done deal.
I am putting 75% odds that Revis is traded before the end of the 1st round next Thursday.
Not lost is the irony of his offseason behavior and “Mevis” attitude and the sweatshirt he was wearing
