“Come January, Revis should pick a team that has a need in the secondary, show them he can still run and cut and do whatever he needs to do to perform at an acceptable level, join a roster, and showcase his talents in during the playoffs. If, obviously, someone wants him,” Florio writes.
According to Florio, this would benefit Revis by allowing him to make most, if not all, of the $6 million he’s owed from the Jets and give him an opportunity to chance another Super Bowl title for a contender. By waiting until later on in the year, Revis should showcase his ability before testing the open market again in 2018.
We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
- Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News takes a look at five underdogs on the Giants’ defense worth watching during training camp.
- Leonard’s list includes CB Michael Hunter, DT Robert Thomas, S Eric Pinkins, DE/OLB Ishaq Williams, and DE Devin Taylor.
- Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times writes that Seahawks CB DeShawn Shead is “almost certain” to open the year on the team’s physically unable to perform list, which will cost him the first six weeks of the season.
- Condotta mentions that both HC Pete Carroll and DC Kris Richard gave strong votes of confidence for Jeremy Lane during offseason workouts, so he appears to be the team’s No. 2 cornerback to open training camp and could move inside in nickel formations.
- The third cornerback job may come down to Neiko Thorpe and rookie Shaquill Griffin, as they both shared time in that role during minicamp, according to Condotta.
- Condotta also expects DeAndre Elliott and rookie Mike Tyson to factor into the competition and could end up fighting for a backup nickel role.
