Jets willing to pay Darrelle Revis anything he wants

Published 1 Comments

Darrelle Revis could well end up back at the New York Jets during the free agency period that begins next week.

Once a former key member of the Jets' defense during some of Rex Ryan's dominant seasons as the coach of Gang Green, Revis has since spent two seasons away from New York.

But after a couple of years away from the Big Apple, Revis is interested in a return and the Jets seem to be willing to pay him anything he wants, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.

"ESPN's Adam Schefter believes the Jets will attempt to pay Darrelle Revis "anything he wants" if/when he becomes a free agent," reports revealed on Thursday.

Ultimately, Schefter believes that Revis's decision on his destination will come down to the Patriots and the Jets, with Jets owner Woody Johnson apparently feeling regret recently over his decision to trade Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two years ago.

Revis is still very popular in the New York media, and the veteran cornerback would fit perfectly into new coach Todd Bowles' aggressive defensive scheme that maximises individual talent in the same way Ryan's did in New York.

Watch this space on the subject of Revis's future, but what do you think Jets fans? Do you want Darrelle Revis to return to New York? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
