Darrelle Revis | CB | Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said CB Darrelle Revis (knee) will be ready to start in Week 1. 'One hundred percent he'll be out there,' Dominik said. 'Everything's on the right track in fact. I'm confident he will walk out the first day of training camp with pads on and go do work, so we'll be smart with him.'
Huddle Up: Dominik and the Bucs had to have confidence in Revis' knee, or it would've been a deal killer. In any case, no one really expects Revis will miss the Sept. 8 season opener against his former team, do they?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have acquired CB Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets after he passed his physical. The Jets will receive a 2013 first-round choice (13th overall) and a conditional fourth-round draft choice in 2014. The conditional pick will become a third-round pick if Revis is on the Buccaneers' roster on the third day of the 2014 league year. Shortly after, Revis signed a 6-year, $96 million deal with his new team.
Huddle Up: The daily drama and Revis rumor mill officially came to an end Sunday, as the Bucs finally made their move. Tampa did have to part with its first-round pick in Thursday's draft, but a healthy Revis will be more than worth it to a team which faces the likes of Julio Jones, Steve Smith, Roddy White and Marques Colston twice a season and ranked second to last -- trailing only the defenseless Saints -- this past season in terms of the most fantasy points allowed to opposing WRs.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to the compensation in a trade with the New York Jets for CB Darrelle Revis (knee). Revis has to pass a physical before the trade can be finalized. According to various reports, the Jets would receive multiple draft picks, including the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, from the Bucs.
Huddle Up: It's still not officially official, but provided the CB's knee checks out OK, it looks like Revis Island will be relocating to the Sunshine State.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may not trade for New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis if the Jets continue to insist on acquiring three draft picks in the trade. The Buccaneers are willing to trade a first-round draft choice and something else to the Jets but believe they are the only team that has salary cap space and a need at cornerback that are talking with the Jets.
Huddle Up: Right now the Bucs are the only suitors for Revis, and all indications are he won't be back in New York. Getting a first round pick for a guy coming off a torn ACL would be a solid get for the Jets, so as the draft approaches and the Bucs refuse to blink expect them to back off the volume picks demand and "settle" for a first and another conditional selection. It's better than getting nothing for Revis, which at present seems to be the alternative.

The New York Jets won't trade CB Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unless the compensation package includes Tampa's first-round pick, No. 13 overall, in the NFL Draft. Jets general manager John Idzik made that clear to the Buccaneers, and their general manager, Mark Domenik, is hedging on whether to offer the pick.
Huddle Up: Hey, if the Jets are going to deal the league's top CB, they're at least going to expect something in return. As always, stay tuned to see if the Bucs decide to ante up ...

The New York Jets plan to enforce language in CB Darrelle Revis' contract that requires him to participate in offseason workouts in order to collect bonus money. Revis has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee and would prefer to continue rehabbing in Arizona but plans to report for the workouts.
Huddle Up: If Revis ever wants a new deal -- and if the Jets ever hope to trade the CB -- he's going to have to toe the line and do what he can to participate in team functions.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain interested in a deal with the New York Jets for CB Darrelle Revis, and talks are expected to heat up again as the 2013 NFL Draft approaches.
Huddle Up: We told you to brace for an offseason of Revis trade talk, and we're well into the third month of rumors and speculation.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis will receive a $1 million bonus because he was on the roster Saturday, March 16.
Huddle Up: The Jets weren't able to find a suitable trade offer for Revis, so they're investing $1 million in either getting a deal done down the road or in keeping Revis around for another season.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis' representatives would like a quick resolution regarding his future with the team because they are worried that interest in Revis could dry up if the team waits to trade him.
Huddle Up: Complicating matters, big time, is Revis' recovery from his 2012 knee injury. While his reps would like an immediate answer, the Jets and other interested parties are going to want to wait as long as possible to gauge how the CB's rehab is progressing before committing big-time $$$ and/or resources to secure his services.

After the San Francisco 49ers acquired a pair of draft picks, including a 2013 second-round selection, from the Kansas City Chiefs for QB Alex Smith, the team may be armed with enough assets to make a run at New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis in a trade.
Huddle Up: The Niners don't have a ton of needs on their roster, so packaging draft picks to acquire Revis would be a solid move. And adding Revis to an already stout defense should strike fear in the hearts of the NFC--especially fantasy owners of, among others, Larry Fitzgerald, who would see Revis twice a year.

New York Jets general manager John Idzik was 'actively' shopping CB Darrelle Revis at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to a source, and interested teams are now doing their homework on what it would take to get Revis signed to a new contract if they can satisfy the Jets with compensation.
Huddle Up: Revis isn't necessarily an IDP stud because teams tend not to throw at him. However, wherever he goes the fantasy values of the WR1s in that division will take a hit from facing him twice a year.

According to multiple sources, while the New York Jets were not actively trying to trade CB Darrelle Revis (knee) at the NFL Scouting Combine, they have been 'all ears' when it comes to calls about the cornerback's availability and have taken several calls.
Huddle Up: It's a drama that isn't going to go away until the CB is either dealt or gets some sort of extension from the Jets. Both scenarios, though, are currently on hold as everyone waits to see how Revis progresses in his knee-injury recovery.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis said in an interview that he is upset over speculation the team was considering the option of trading him. 'I was speechless because I didn't get a phone call. I know it's a business -- just call me; don't have it lingering out there,' Revis said. 'I need answers and I'm not getting any. Just the fact that that was put out there instead of contacting your best player ... If that's how you want to do business, then that's fine.'
Huddle Up: Hey, Darrelle, you're employed by a team in New York -- or at least right next door in Jersey -- and the rumors and speculation are going to fly. Now whether the Jets are actually serious about pursuing a trade is another issue, but after 6 seasons, Revis should be used to the rumor mill and the back-page innuendo.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (knee) might be able to start some light running and conditioning in April, according to his defensive backs trainer. 'The great thing is, there's been no setbacks, it's been a great surgery, he's doing the right things - he hasn't done too much, he hasn't done too lite,' Will Sullivan, the trainer, said Wednesday, Feb. 13. 'He's doing just enough to make sure he's cooperating with the doctor and physical therapist.'
Huddle Up: Revis' health will be a prime factor in whatever fork in the road awaits the Pro Bowl corner -- be it getting a new deal with the Jets or landing with a new team in a trade.
Posted: 2/12/2013 1:02pm et
The New York Jets will look to trade CB Darrelle Revis this offseason because they know Revis will not play for $6 million next season.
Huddle Up: If Revis truly lands on the trading block, it shapes up to be the story of the NFL offseason with any number of suitors looking to land the All-Pro CB.

The New York Jets would take a $9 million salary cap hit if they trade CB Darrelle Revis before June 1. It is also unlikely the Jets could get a fair return for arguably the best defensive player in the NFL.
Huddle Up: The Jets are between the proverbial rock and hard place with Revis, whom they would demand a high draft pick for in return.
Posted: 1/24/2013 1:26pm et
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is open to trading CB Darrelle Revis, according to a person familiar with his thinking. Johnson is pessimistic about the chances of re-signing Revis before he becomes a free agent next year. Revis' contract will void after the 2013 season, and there is a clause in the deal that prohibits the Jets from using the franchise tag. The Jets are already $19.4 million over the 2013 salary cap, which will make signing Revis difficult.
Huddle Up: Even with the CB's steep price tag, there would be plenty of bidders for Revis' services, and if the Jets look at themselves as rebuilding rather than reloading, dealing the CB might be the way to go. In any case, it figures to be one of the top storylines of the impending offseason.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis may not have a long-term future with the team. Revis may play his final season with the team in 2013. Ever since the team renegotiated his contract in 2010, they have been pointing to before the start of the 2013 season as the time to return to the bargaining table to hammer out a long-term extension. The Jets would have to do it before Revis plays out his contact because there's a clause in his current deal that prohibits the team from using the franchise tag when he becomes a free agent after the 2013 season. Revis' injury, however, could complicate matters. "It's a real problem," according to a longtime general manager. "You could say all bets are off. Until you see it - until you see him at 100 percent - do you want to make that kind of investment? I don't know many teams that would."
Huddle Up: The injury certainly puts Revis' ability to land a long-term deal--in New York or elsewhere--in jeopardy. However, elite shutdown corners are a rare commodity so Revis shouldn't be lacking for incentive-laden short-term offers. And the team that wants to win him over shouldn't be afraid to risk some guaranteed money on a player of Revis' ilk.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (knee) is seeking a second opinion on the diagnosis of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The Jets encourage all their players to seek a second opinion on major injuries.
Huddle Up: A torn ACL is a torn ACL, meaning there's not much hope for Revis to play again in 2012. Third-year CB Kyle Wilson will take his place in the starting lineup opposite Antonio Cromartie.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 3, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: Horrible news for Revis and the Jets' defense, but fantasy owners looking for a positive spin can now feel better about playing wide receivers against the Jets.
Posted: 9/23/2012 6:38pm et
The New York Jets fear that CB Darrelle Revis (knee) may have suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 3, but they will not know the official diagnosis until he undergoes more tests.
Huddle Up: It definitely didn't look good for the Jets' top defender. Without Revis in Week 2, the Jets had to play zone almost exclusively, and the Steelers were able to find some holes in a 27-10 win.
Posted: 9/20/2012 1:56pm et
Although New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) appears likely to play in Week 3, head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday, Sept. 20, Revis hasn't yet been cleared to play, although he has been cleared for contact. 'Again, if it's not the final hurdle I don't want to say something that isn't true,' Ryan said. 'I'm going to rely on the doctors and the trainers; hopefully he'll play but we'll see.' When pressed repeatedly about Revis' status, Ryan stuck to the company line. 'Again, I could say that I expect him to play, but again, I am going to leave that to the doctors and the trainers. He's cleared for contact.'
Huddle Up: The Jets were forced to play more zone with Revis out in Week 2, and the Steelers found some holes with Ben Roethlisberger throwing for 275 and a pair of scores. The opponent's passing game isn't as much of a concern this week with rookie Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins, but the Jets definitely could use a shot of Revis after last week's 27-10 loss.
Posted: 9/19/2012 12:56pm et
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) is still not cleared for contact. He will practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: This is a big injury to monitor this week as the Jets travel to Miami to face Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins. If Revis Island is closed for a second week, Brian Hartline could be in for another nice day. The Jets say they did not change their defensive strategy with Revis out last week and it burned them; this could be another big week for Reggie Bush.
Posted: 9/15/2012 6:35pm et
The New York Jets defense will likely play more zone in their Week 2 game with CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) out of the lineup. Playing zone would be the safe, conservative route, minimizing big plays against a talented and deep set of Pittsburgh Steelers receivers.
Huddle Up: Definitely expect Big Ben and his speedy wideouts to put the Revisless Jets' secondary to the test Sunday. With the team's RB situation still in a bit of flux, Roethisberger dropped back to pass at least 45 times last Sunday against the Broncos, and he won't be shy about stretching the field with Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders and TE Heath Miller on Sunday.
Posted: 9/14/2012 2:47pm et
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (head) is out for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Upgrade the Pittsburgh offense as a whole. That Revis Island is closed this weekend is a big blow to the Jets defense. Not only should Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders get a boost, Big Ben gets a bump as well. Jonathan Dwyer could also see some more daylight than he would have had the Jets been able to rely on Revis to shut his man down all game long.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) said he will allow the team doctors determine whether he will be able to play Week 2. "It's not my call. It's the doctors' call," Revis said. "Whatever they say goes. I would try to be out there with a broken leg. They know that. It's a competitive spirit in me that just wants to go out there and play. If I feel fine, which I do, then we'll go from there."
Huddle Up: That's concussion protocol these days, so it remains a wait-and-see situation for the Jets' Pro Bowl corner.
Posted: 9/13/2012 11:38am et
The feeling in the New York Jets locker room is that CB Darrelle Revis will play in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Latest word is that Revis has been cleared to practice but not for contact, but he still has a couple days before the game to clear that hurdle. If Revis plays, Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown become a little more difficult fantasy starts this week.
Posted: 9/12/2012 12:44pm et
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity; however, he still won't practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Revis' presence on the field makes a dramatic difference in projecting Steelers receivers. It looks like he will be a go, meaning Mike Wallace is in for another long day. Unless, of course, the Steelers actually key on Antonio Brown.
Posted: 8/7/2012 2:26pm et
Updating a previous report, New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (back) missed time in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, with lower-back tightness.
Huddle Up: Of all the camps, there's never a shortage of storylines with the Jets. If it isn't Rex Ryan's mouth, it's Tim Tebow's throwing mechanics or Santonio Holmes' ribs. Revis, however, is more valuable to the franchise's fortunes than all the above. While this issue doesn't sound like much on the surface, it will definitely be something to monitor going forward this preseason.

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis could be a holdout from training camp as he is unhappy with his contract. Revis is scheduled to make $13.5 million over the next two years, which is considered a bargain for a player of his caliber; however, Revis has been one of the NFL's highest-paid players over the first two years of the contract, which is why the team believes Revis should play out at least one more season. "That one, he's kept everybody guessing," ESPN analyst Chris Mortensen said of Revis. "I'm almost surprised if he's there on Day 1."
Huddle Up: This has been brewing since before the ink dried on Revis' previous contract, given the way it was structured. If you're the fantasy owner of a WR1 with the Jets on their early-season schedule, you're thinking Revis should really stick to his guns and not show up until he gets paid.
Posted: 5/31/2012 8:41pm et
New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis said he is not sure if he will report for the start of training camp because of his contract situation.
Huddle Up: Huh? Revis just signed a fat extension two years ago with $32.5 million guaranteed. Heck, his 2012 salary is a whopping $7.5 million and it's guaranteed for injury too. C'mon, man!
