What would have happened if New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis never injured the ACL in his knee against the Miami Dolphins in 2012?
Would the Jets have won enough games with their best player on deck to secure the future of their previous administration?
That is a good question as now Revis prepares to report to the team to collect a healthy bonus so that they can presumably prepare him for trade.
There is one suitor that is the presumed landing spot for him.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can now begin to collect the data that they need to effectively assess how much immediate help Revis can be to their cause.
The Buccaneers secondary has been horrible over the past two seasons as their best DB Ronde Barber caught a date with Father Time.
If they are to give the Jets what they require to let go of Revis, the footage of him running and doing drills in the ongoing series by the NFL Network must be pushing them closer to doing the deal.
“I can’t wait until my name gets called, when I get to run out of the tunnel and just be where I usually [am],” he said. “My comfort zone is to go out there and just play ball. I’ve played six years. It went so fast. I’m just grateful. I just thank God I got a second chance.”
As for where he will play ball, Revis stated that his focus is on getting his recovery right in the short-term.
“There’s been a lot of talk,” he said. “We’ll see what happens — if I’m there or if I’m not. But that’s the next step. That’s the next phase for me in my career, these next couple of weeks.”
