Revis is obviously a great fit in Rex Ryan’s defense and has said that he would welcome Revis back without issue.
Revis, 28, totaled 50 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and two forced fumbles over the the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Revis rated as the No. 1 cornerback in the league last season.
“It’s going to happen,” the source told Mehta.
Tom Curran reported earlier in the day that the Eagles are expected to be in the mix for Revis.
- However, Reuben Frank of CSN Philly doesn’t see it happening.
- Meanwhile, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer mentions that the Eagles’ defensive scheme doesn’t require a “shutdown” cornerback.
- Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that the Giants, Falcons, Eagles and Patriots are among the “many” teams that inquired about Revis, so they could be teams to keep an eye on.
As things stand right now, the Patriots could be the team to watch in regards to Revis. There was a lot of buzz last night about Patriots being a team to watch regarding Revis now that they lost Aqib Talib to the Broncos.
