Former Jets CB Darrelle Revis may not find a new home in the NFL soon due to his bleak market value, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Released by the Jets on March 9, there has been no talk about Revis generating interest around the league. Cimini states his decline in performance and lack of passion and commitment have turned off any potential suitors at the moment.
Revis is no longer the shutdown corner he used to be due to age and injuries from his ten-year career. His latest injury came in 2012 when he tore his ACL in Week 3. He would need microfracture surgery to repair it which ended his season. This was one reason the Jets traded him to the Buccaneers the following year.
Last season, Revis had a significant lapse in production as he secured only one interception which came in Week 17. He amassed five in 2015, which was good for sixth-best in the NFL.
The lack of interest doesn't stem from his arrest back on February 12 where he was charged with four felonies in connection to a street fight in Pittsburgh. Revis was exonerated, and he addressed the media on March 15 to hopefully get teams to start calling. It was recently reported by Newsday Monday that the NFL will not be disciplining him either.
Revis is set to make $6 million next season whether he plays or not as the Jets must pay his final guarantee of his 2015 contract. Cimini points out that if a team decides to pay him the minimum $1 million, the Jets would still have to pay the remaining $5 million. This makes him a good bargain for a team looking for a veteran cornerback.
The 14th overall pick for the Jets in 2007, Revis has made it to seven Pro Bowls, five with the Jets, and has been named First Team All-Pro four teams in his career.
