PFT's Mike Florio reports the Jets have filed tampering charges against the Patriots after owner Robert Kraft talked about Darrelle Revis on Tuesday.
It's just a sarcastic jab back at the Patriots from the Jets after New England initially filed tampering charges against Gang Green when Jets owner Woody Johnson made comments about Revis while he was still under contract with the Patriots earlier this month. Don't expect anything to come of the charges. Mar 24 - 8:54 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles confirmed Darrelle Revis will do some shadowing this season.

Under Bill Belichick, it was a bit tricky to pinpoint which receivers would run routes against Revis. It should be easier under Bowles, who used Patrick Peterson as a shadow corner in Arizona. "Some games [Revis] will be left and right. Some games he'll match up (vs. best WR)."

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the NFL sent officials to the Jets' offices to investigate whether New York contacted Darrelle Revis before he officially became a free agent on the first day of the new league year.

NFL teams could legally contact free agents of other teams during the three-day "legal tampering" window. Revis was not a free agent until the Patriots declined his option on March 10 at 4 pm EST, however, meaning any contact with Revis before then would be illegal tampering. Even if the Jets contacted Revis prior to him officially becoming a free agent, the NFL would have a very difficult time proving it, and even if they could, any punishment levied on New York would seem disingenuous considering tampering is almost an open secret in the NFL. The league clearly wants to put an end to illegal tampering, but it is a war they will have a difficult time winning.

Jets agreed to terms with CB Darrelle Revis, formerly of the Patriots, on a five-year, $70 million contract with $39 million guaranteed.

He's baaaack. Revis' agents made the announcement on Twitter. Revis continues to make bank and is now the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. After the Patriots failed to pick up Revis' $20 million team option, word immediately began circulating that Revis was planning a return to New York. After a two-year hiatus with stops in Tampa Bay and New England, Revis and the Jets get back together with the man who ousted him -- ex-GM John Idzik -- no longer working for the team. Revis will turn 30 this summer, but is still elite. He and Buster Skrine should make up Gang Green's new corner duo.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci disputes a report that the Bills are pursuing free agent Darrelle Revis.

It's entirely possible the Bills were floated by Revis' agents to drive up a bidding war. The Revis sweepstakes are expected to come down to the Patriots and Jets. An Adam Schefter report from earlier indicated the Jets are the favorite.
Mar 10 - 6:44 PM

The Bills are expressing interest in signing free agent CB Darrelle Revis.

Rex Ryan loves Revis and will obviously try to get him back. However, the Jets and Patriots are still considered the heavy favorites to land free agency's No. 1 player. The Bills, Steelers, Raiders, Chiefs and others are just in the background.
Mar 10 - 5:46 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the "sense out of New England" is that free agent CB Darrelle Revis will sign with the Jets.

The Patriots will make a "final push," but the expectation is Revis is chasing the money to return to Gang Green. If true, the Patriots may lose both Revis and RCB Brandon Browner after New England declined Browner's option Tuesday afternoon. Once a suddenly strong secondary now needs a ton of work.
Mar 10 - 4:06 PM

Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports the Raiders are interested in signing free agent CB Darrelle Revis.

If Revis fields an offer from Oakland, it will only be to drive up his price. The Chiefs have also been linked to Revis because of his connection to defensive coordinator Bob Sutton. When the dust settles, this will be a two-horse race between the Jets and Patriots. If Revis wants to win another Super Bowl, his best bet is the Pats. If it's about money, he'll head back to his old stomping grounds in New York.
Mar 10 - 11:08 AM

The Browns have expressed interest in free agent CB Darrelle Revis.

Of course the Browns and former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine would like to land free agency's No. 1 player. But it's not a realistic landing spot as Revis is going to fetch mammoth offers from his two preferred franchises -- the Patriots and Jets. Revis will reportedly go back to Bill Belichick and New England if the money is close.
Mar 10 - 10:02 AM

The Patriots have declined Darrelle Revis' $20 million team option for 2015, making him a free agent.

The expected move has Revis within inches of the open market, but Yahoo's Charles Robinson repots the sides are still talking. The Pats have reportedly asked Brandon Browner to restructure his contract, a sign they're trying to free up some money for a new Revis deal. There's still a strong chance New England keeps its No. 1 corner, but Revis has a history of following the money. Other teams will likely offer more of it on the open market.
Mar 9 - 3:41 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Chiefs "haven't given up" on signing Darrelle Revis.

Kansas City was barely known to be a Revis suitor in the first place, particularly after Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported Sunday afternoon that Revis' decision would come "down to the Patriots or Jets." The Chiefs would have to make a number of adjustments to fit Revis under their cap, including reworking Alex Smith's contract and cutting both Dwayne Bowe and Tamba Hali.
Mar 8 - 9:29 PM

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Darrelle Revis is "down to the Patriots or Jets."

Revis isn't technically a free agent, but he can become one on Monday if the Patriots decline his $12.5 million option bonus. The Pats want to keep Revis, but the Jets may offer him more money. Coming off a Super Bowl win, 29-year-old Revis will likely be deciding between winning and a little more cash.
Mar 8 - 1:49 PM

The New York Daily News reports Darrelle Revis will re-sign with the Patriots if they make a comparable offer to what he receives on the open market.

After winning a Super Bowl in his lone year in New England, Revis will unsurprisingly give the Patriots the benefit of the doubt in negotiations. The Patriots will at least have to come close to Revis' other suitors, however, which could be difficult with the Jets reportedly set to make a big run at one of the game's premier corners. Revis' $12 million roster bonus becomes guaranteed on Monday. The Patriots are expected to extend his contract or release him by then.
Mar 7 - 9:12 AM

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

Schefter believes the Revis sweepstakes will come down to the Jets and Patriots. The Jets made the difficult, but likely correct, decision to trade Revis two years ago, but meddlesome owner Woody Johnson has apparently felt regret. The New York media has spent the better part of two years beating the drum for Revis' return. Johnson seems to feel the pressure. Whatever the motivations, Revis would fill a huge need for Gang Green, and be playing for a coach in Todd Bowles who maximizes talent and scheme much the same way Rex Ryan does.
Mar 5 - 2:25 PM

According to the New York Daily News, Jets owner Woody Johnson has had discussions with GM Mike Maccagnan about signing Patriots CB Darrelle Revis.

As integral as Revis was to the Patriots' championship run last season, there's no way they can keep him at his current salary. New England would absorb a monstrous $25 million cap hit by picking up his option, making it a near certainty that Revis will hit the market. The Jets have a serious need at corner and are $51 million under the cap, so this is more than just smoke and mirrors. Revis went to four Pro Bowls during his six-year stay in the Meadowlands from 2007 to 2012.
