Speaking Thursday, Jets owner Woody Johnson hinted the team will be moving on from Darrelle Revis.
"He's going in the Hall-of-Fame, there's no question," Johnson said, stalling. "He's one of the best players ever to put on a Jets uniform. ... It wasn't his best year, but a lot of guys didn't have good years. My hat's off to Darrelle. Great career." Unless Revis is willing to play for a bargain price — which is not his style — a divorce is looking more and more likely. Jan 5 - 4:39 PM

Darrelle Revis said he is willing to move to safety if it helps "the team win games."

"This offseason, there will be a lot of thinking what my future is and what I can do to best help the team win games," Revis said. "If that means changing my position to help the team win games, that's fine." Revis is not going to be back with the Jets at his current $15.333 million cap hit, but perhaps the two sides can work out a contract restructure to keep the future Hall of Famer in town. Only 31, Revis could potentially extend his career several years with a switch to safety. For what it's worth, coach Todd Bowles "thinks" Revis can still play corner.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team will discuss moving Darrelle Revis to safety in the offseason.

"It's something we might talk about in the offseason," Bowles admitted. "It ain't gonna happen over the next three games." The Jets just lost Marcus Gilchrist to a season-ending knee injury, but Revis won't be a candidate to replace him at free safety. Revis has had his worst season, grading out as PFF's No. 73 cornerback out of 120 qualifiers. There's no guarantee Revis will be back with the Jets next year.

When asked about his future, Darrelle Revis said "I still have a lot of football to play."

Revis was responding to a New York Daily News report that suggested he didn't want to play anymore. "I still love the game," said Revis. "I think that’s why I’m still playing the game, just the love for it." Revis has had a dismal year and will likely have to accept a significant pay cut if he wants to remain with the Jets past this season. Given his fading coverage skills, moving to safety seems like the logical next step for Revis.

A confidant of Darrelle Revis told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that Revis "doesn't want to play anymore."

"He's done," the confidant told Mehta. "If he had his way, he'd be done right now. He doesn't want to play anymore. He's made a lot of money." If true, it would be quite a reversal from this summer when Revis said he would play "until the wheels fall off." Well the wheels have already fallen off as the once-dominant corner has been a huge liability in the Jets' secondary this year. Revis recently admitted that he feels "old" while ESPN's Rich Cimini believes the Jets will move on from him this offseason. Revis Island is nearing its end in East Rutherford.

ESPN's Rich Cimini believes the Jets will move on from Darrelle Revis this offseason.

Revis could accept a pay cut to stick around, but Cimini believes the Jets would rather just be done with their rapidly declining corner. Revis has a $15 million base salary in 2017. He is still only 31 years old.

Darrelle Revis blamed his struggles this season on being "old."

When asked about his declining play, Revis bluntly said, "Because I'm old." It is not a conclusion anyone would argue with as Revis has clearly lost a step, but it is still a surprising admission from a once-elite player. Owed $6 million guaranteed next season with another $2 million in the form of a roster bonus due on the second league day, the Jets are probably tied to Revis for another year, but he has become a liability in coverage. The long-rumored switch to safety may finally happen this season with the Jets out of the playoff picture.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini speculates the team might cut CB Darrelle Revis following the season.

Once expected to play out the twilight of his career at safety, Cimini thinks the Jets could skip the switch and just release Revis outright this offseason. New York does owe Revis $6 million guaranteed next year, but releasing him before the second league day of 2017 would save them a $2 million roster bonus. Revis' struggles reached a breaking point against the Browns when he was burned by Terrelle Pryor for 101 yards in the first half. Pryor was held without a catch in the second, but Revis was given plenty of help and still got burned for what should have been a long catch.

Speaking after practice Thursday, Darrelle Revis admitted his body is "breaking down."

"I mean, not in a bad way. I can still play," Revis said. "It's just, I'm breaking down. I’m 31. How many corners are 31 right now in the league? ... I sound like I’m retiring. I’m not thinking about retirement at this moment." Revis has looked like a shell of his former "Revis Island" self, getting blown by for several long touchdowns and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 92 corner after annually being at or near the top. He also admitted he's carrying a "few" extra pounds after offseason wrist surgery. Revis gets Terrelle Pryor in Week 8.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Cardinals.

C Nick Mangold (knee) is also active after both players were listed as questionable. Revis missed Week 5 against the Steelers and returns for a date with John Brown and Michael Floyd. Fire up Brown with confidence.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6 against the Cardinals.

Revis was limited the last two days. He's on track to play after missing only one game. Revis returning isn't a major downgrade to Arizona's pass game.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) returned to practice on Friday.

It's the first time he's practiced since straining his hamstring in Week 4. The Jets' game is on Monday night, which obviously improves Revis' chances of playing. Darryl Roberts and Juston Burris filled in for Revis at left corner last week in Pittsburgh.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

Revis grabbed his helmet at the start of practice, but couldn't get in a limited session. Coach Todd Bowles expects to have a good feel for his status by Friday.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) is practicing Thursday.

Revis sat out last week, but even a limited return on the first day of practice puts him on track to play. Considering how poorly he has played this season, Revis' potential return does nothing to hurt Carson Palmer's matchup.

Darrelle Revis (hamstring) is inactive for Week 5 against the Steelers.

Revis has been having a shaky year, but it's really bad news for a Jets pass defense that's been getting scorched on a weekly basis. Revis seemed close to playing, and will probably be ready for Week 6.
