Revis got in one last workout at Jets facility

Revis AP

More details slowly are emerging about the inevitable but nevertheless stunning decision of the Jets to unload the best player on their roster.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets gave Tampa permission to give Revis a physical on Friday morning, which meant that the parameters of a deal essentially were in place.  However, agent Neil Schwartz wanted to delay the trip to Tampa until hammering out the contract with G.M. Mark Dominik.

So while Schwartz handled that fairly important piece of business on Friday, Revis showed up for work.

Specifically, Revis made one last trip to the team’s facility for a rehab session on his knee.  He told no one about the looming trade, but there was another risk.  If Revis had done anything at the Jets’ facility to seriously injure his knee (or any other body part), the Jets would have been stuck with Revis for 2013, and the earliest the Bucs could have gotten him would have been in 2014, as an unrestricted free agent.

    You’d think he’d wanna get out of that mess without ever looking back, never mind going back. If draft picks were smart, they’d let be known that they don’t wanna go anywhere near the Jets and will sign a one year deal with the CFL.

    then he took a dump in the toilet and didn’t flush

    Then he called Richard Sherman and told him he better watch out what he says.

    “Stunning Decision” $16M is ridiculous to pay a corner back and they get a #1 pick this year instead. Next year, they can use the money they saved on him and sign multiple Probowl players instead of him.

    This is just like the Jared Allen trade.

    One team got worse. One team stayed exaclty the same

    If Woody hadn’t shown his hand so early Idzik might have gottne more. This had to be done. At this point the Jets have 12 deaft picks next year….we can use the $16MM to sign them

    Down here in Tampa they are saying he is the best CB in football. Really? That just goes to show what posers the local media is.

    Seriously? What’s going to happen, he’ll trip up the stairs? He went in for rehab!

  11. markpackman says: Apr 23, 2013 12:43 PM

    …then he stuffed several plush bath towels in his suitcase.

  12. 4thqtrsaint says: Apr 23, 2013 1:10 PM

    Yet another pick where he just doesn’t look happy.

  13. winstonpark says: Apr 23, 2013 1:18 PM

    4thqtrsaint sounds unhappy that Brees’ INTs just doubled this year. :-)

  14. r8rsfan says: Apr 23, 2013 1:32 PM

    Sounds like his rehab is important enough to him that he’s willing to do it in a very uncomfortable situation. Can’t see how it can be viewed as a negative thing.

    He was definitely snagging some robes and taking everything from the mini-fridge

    If you don’t think that Revis is the best CB in football, then you’re either misinformed or someone who’s upset he didn’t come to your team.

    I find it funny how everyone claims they know what type of person he is, yet, all his teamates speak of how great of a player/teamate he was.

    But had Revis got hurt, Revis would have been out the extra contract money. I promise, Revis would not have been hurt.

    Funny how you are calling it a “stunning decision” to trade Revis when all you ever wrote for weeks now was that trading him was Jets best & only play.
