Island for Sale
The talk of the off-season has centered on whether lightning rod quarterback Colin Kaepernick will get a contract offer but another NFL vet is still without a contract. Darrell Revis, famous for Revis Island and for being arguably the best cornerback in the league during his prime, is still without a contract. After being cut by the Jets following an arrest in his hometown of Pittsburgh, no team has taken a chance on the 31 year old yet.
“Revis Island” might be a relic of the past but their still may be some use for wily vet. A move to free safety might be in the cards. Also, let’s not forget but his 2015 season was very good. That year he had 5 interceptions and going into the 2016 season was ranked as the 24th best player in the league according to the NFL Network. The 2016 season, however, was a disappointment. Revis finished the season with only 1 interception and a passer rating against of 91.7. Not good numbers at all.
As training camps get underway, one would assume, some team will take a cheap flyer on Revis as he would add depth and experience to any secondary.
