Darrelle Revis torched, again

It’s one thing for DeAndre Hopkins or Sammy Watkins or A.J. Green to get the better of cornerback Darrelle Revis. It’s another for a journeyman to rocket past Revis and make him look like a guy who shouldn’t be on the field.

On Thursday night, Marquise Goodwin did just that, wth an 84-yard catch and run. It was Goodwin’s first touchdown since 2013, and the yardage¬†exceeded Goodwin’s total production in 2014 and 2015 combined.

It will be interesting to see whether the Bills keep targeting Revis, who played for Buffalo coach Rex Ryan with the Jets, a tenure that included an acrimonious holdout in 2010. No one would be surprised if Ryan keeps going after Revis, again and again and again.

The Jets signed Revis in 2015 to a contract that pays out $39 million fully guaranteed over three years. Of that amount, $6 million is fully guaranteed in 2017. Another $9 million isn’t. Absent significant improvement from Revis, chances are they’ll pay him $6 million to not play for them in lieu of giving him $15 million to be on the field.

Until then, the Jets need to figure out whether to give Revis more safety help — or whether to ultimately make him a safety.

    That was abuse

    Still wish Tampa didn’t waste that first round pick on him a few years back, but glad they cut him loose

    If he keeps playing like this, he will hurt his HOF case.

    When Top corners drop off, they drop off big time.

    Malcolm Butler contract : 3 years / 1.5 million

    Darrelle Revis contract : 5 years / 70 million

    And to think, some were surprised when Belichick replaced Revis with Butler.

    Straight up torched is right

    He’s done.

    Wow, before the half, beat him again but bad pass. It’s possible he’s still hurt. His injury history and age really made that contract a huge risk. Once again, Revis wins though. He got his ring and his cash.

    It was a 9 route run by the fastest player in the NFL and a perfect throw. Not much you can do about that.

    I hate to see legends like Revis fall off after such a great career. Happened to Champ Bailey too.

    C’mon, he’s always been a little overrated.

  12. jag1959 says: Sep 15, 2016 10:42 PM

    If they had a burn protocol he’d be in it.

  13. pisano says: Sep 16, 2016 12:32 AM

    He’s lost a step or two, no doubt.

  14. baltimoresnativeson says: Sep 16, 2016 12:33 AM

    Father time still undefeated.

    Never a good sign when you talk about moving to safety before the season starts

  16. bigoldred says: Sep 16, 2016 5:04 AM

    I’m glad I’m not the Pats GM, I thought they should keep him. Not only do the Pats beat the Jets, the Jets help them do it.

  17. dreadnok89 says: Sep 16, 2016 6:47 AM

    They should just move him to safety

  18. hgamatt says: Sep 16, 2016 7:06 AM

    I still respect Revis for being the first player in the NFL to truly maximize his value. This dude held out every year for a contract that would pay him north of $16 million. He gambled on himself and won 5 years in a row.

    Classic Belichick twofer – mortgage the opposition’s future while improving his own team.

  20. gizzmonic says: Sep 17, 2016 10:53 AM

    He shouldn’t bring his wallet on the field. It slows him down big time.
