On Saturday, Cowboys WR Dez Bryant tweeted free agent CB Darrelle Revis about joining him in Dallas, given that they could use a cornerback like him.

The Cowboys have been rebuilding their secondary after losing a number of key contributors in free agency.
Dallas signed veteran Nolan Carroll to a contract this past March and used draft picks on Chidobe Awuzie (second round), Jourdan Lewis (third round) and Marquez White (sixth round), so it hard to say that they would have a lot of interest in an aging veteran like Revis.
To make matters more complicated, the Jets owe Revis $6 million for the 2017 season whether he plays or not, which means there isn’t much of an incentive for him to play for a low-money deal, seeing has he’ll make more by doing nothing.
There hasn’t been any reported interest in Revis for several months now, but that could change if someone gets hurt.
Revis, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2007. He was entering the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that includes $39 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $13 million for the 2017 season when he was released by the Jets.
In 2016, Revis appeared in 15 games for the Jets and recorded 53 tackles, one interception, and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 66 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players.
