Revis will get cheered because he is back as a Jet. He should of never left the Jets but general managers make mistakes on what to do the best example of that is Idziks tenure as Jet gm. Even though Revis played for the biggest Jets rival last season. The fact that he is back with the Jets is enough to cheer the return of one of the best corner backs in the national football league right now.

Is this thread and poll for real?  If Son of Sam could blanket the opposing team's top WR he would get a 5 minute standing-O when coming out of the tunnel.

I wish I had time to go look at all the threads when Revis was dealt to TB and we got the 1st and a possible 3rd... that became a 4th. 

Many on this board were praising Idzik and the vitriol toward Revis was at an All-Time high..... I wonder what side of the fence you were on then?

Good morning, New York Jets fans. One year ago, your favorite team traded its best playerThe Jets appear to have made the right move in trading cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay. Kim Klement/USA TODAY Sports

 

Yes, April 21 is the first anniversary of the Darrelle Revis trade, a highly controversial move in which John Idzik -- in his first significant decision as the general manager -- sent the then-injured cornerback to theTampa Bay Buccaneers because owner Woody Johnson refused to meet the player's asking price on a new contract, $16 million per year.

After months of speculation, fans awoke on a Sunday morning to the news thatRevis was en route to Tampa to take a physical. Within a couple of hours, it was a done deal, one that will be debated for years. One year later, our take on the winners and losers from the trade:

Winner -- The Jets. Philosophically, it was the right move because no cornerback is worth $16 million a year, but the right move doesn't always work out. In this case, it did. They used the 2013 draft-pick compensation (13th overall) to select defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. They also landed a fourth-round choice in the upcoming draft. To grade the trade mainly on Richardson's performance, however, isn't fair. If the Jets had kept Revis, they wouldn't have needed a cornerback, so they probably would've picked Richardson with their own choice (ninth overall) instead of Dee Milliner. So, when evaluating the trade, Milliner has to be included -- and he was shaky as a rookie.

Loser -- The Bucs. You can bet they're not celebrating the anniversary in Tampa. It was an ill-advised trade when they made it, and it turned into an all-time bust. The Bucs, under new leadership, decided to cut Revis after only one season. After all the hype, he was just a one-year rental. In the end, the trade cost them a mid-first-round pick and $16 million, and the result was a 4-12 record and pink slips for coach Greg Schiano and GM Mark Dominik.

 

Wealthy loser -- Revis. Financially, he made out nicely, making $10 million more from the Bucs than he would've received from the Jets in 2013 -- not a bad raise for a guy coming off ACL surgery. His unexpected trip to free agency allowed him to make another score, landing $12 million from the New England Patriots. Despite a two-year, $29 million haul (including a $1 million roster bonus from the Jets before the trade), Revis has become a hired gun, a well-to-do journeyman who probably will spend the rest of his career going year to year and team to team. It's too bad because he could've gone down as one of the best and most beloved players in Jets history.

Tebow?

And Revis will be cheered big time. Looking forward to his first introduction running out of the tunnel.

He didn't want to leave. Wanted to come back but Idzik was too cheap. Sure he won with the Patsies, but he also just left em with a HUGE hole in the secondary. A hole even bad QBs can take advantage of. This is looking like a fun year.

How could you have booed Tebow? He's such a nice guy and wanted nothing more than to help the team win.

As pissed as I am at him for how he handled his contract negotiations..... our prodigal son has returned!

 

Prodigal means wasteful.

 

Revis made a ton of money and won a ring while he was gone.  Unless he gambled all that money away and sold off his Super Bowl ring on eBay, I'd say he did pretty well for himself.

Also, what a weird thread. I forgot how loopy this place gets in June and July.

Haha..it's better than another Geno thread. I'll be cheering Revis for sure! The fan base is ready to explode with excitement...opening day is gonna be loud, loud, loud

Personally, I think fireman Ed should leas the team out of the tunnel, followed by Charlie casserly and Maccagnan carried by slaves dressed in white togas as flowers rain down from the arena..

+1

The only player that I was disgusted to see in Green and White was Jason Taylor in 2010.

 

Two for me...Taylor and Vick.

Let's see....Steals Woody's money, which is technically ours if you think about it...has demands as if the machine can't just wait him out....usually dishonorably holds out despite what a PRIVELEGE it is to have his job, created by a legendary job creator of lore....Boo him until the cows come home. He is way too uppity and you worry that he is poisoning the young minds in the locker room.

Let's see was paid what he was worth by Woody and was traded away so that he wouldn't be able to use his buy out, if he even wanted to, became a FA after being cut loose by the Bucs, was ignored by Idzik after there was some hint from his camp that he would like to come back to the Jets and then signed with the Pats, the only team to make an offer, talked to no one else after the Pats cut him loose and resigned here

Yeah boo that sequence. If you're clueless.

I don't get why fans blame him for signing with the Pats and want to hold it against him. He was a FA, had let it get out he was interested in a Jet return, Idzik turned his back on that. So he was supposed tom stay loyal to the team that didn't want him, basically said no to him twice and sit out? It's such a silly )fan based idea that a player would turn down the money because they're a rival team.

Domino effect! His actions led the organization down a path to cutting ties with him!

 

He carries the larger share of the burden in my eyes.

Revis 60%(Holdouts); Tannenbaum 30%.(for giving him that last Band Aid contract & Sanchez contract);Woody 10% (Idzik hire)

 

Never should have come to the place where he had to leave!

He held out once. All the rest was on the Jets, whether we're talking about the team trying to screw him and played with the number of years on the rookie deal or thinking he might opt out so they traded him.

There's no holdouts.

He held out as a rookie, he came into year 4 with a "Mystery" hamstring issue(not participating in camp) which forced the Band Aid contract from Tanny.... He then made it very clear he wanted "Big Money" and was ready to hit FA.

 

That's what forced Idzik and Woody's hand in trading him.

 

Happy he's back.... but it should not have been problem in the first place

Revis didn't hold out as a rookie in a traditional sense. Tanny tried to play with the terms of the contract after they agreed to money per and bonus money. Wanted him to take a deal different than the going rate to control his years as a jet player before hitting free agency. Revis would have been a fool to take a 5 year deal like that when everyone wasn't. Then the union would have killed him. It's not like he was a traditional holdout looking for more money. This one was totally on the Jets. Holding out once over the years he was here, as good as he was, as underpaid as they feel in the tail end of a rookie contract, not seeing him as an issue. It's part of the business to me.

Regardless, I'm also happy he's back
