Opening Statement…..

How's it going?  Good to see all of you.  A lot of people here.  It's such an honor for me to be here.  I'm so excited about being a Jet.  Thank you all for coming.  First and foremost, I just want to thank the Broncos for my time in Denver.  It was an amazing tame.  I want to thank my teammates and fans for being such great teammates and such great fans.  I'm looking forward to my time in New York and my time as a Jet.  I'm so honored and humbled to be a Jet.  I'm so thankful that they wanted me.  I'm so excited about meeting my teammates.  I've had the pleasure to meet quite a few already.  I'm looking forward to my future as a Jet and I'm very, very excited about it. With that, I'd love to open it up for questions.

On the discrepancy between John Elway’s and his account on the trade to the Jets…

Well, I guess a little bit of the story was when I woke up Wednesday morning and talked to Coach Fox, they were very gracious the whole time.  Coach Fox, I specifically talked to him a lot throughout the process.  So he kind of told me some of the opportunities that were out there.  So I talked to him about it.  The next thing I know is I got a call from Mr. Tannenbaum and Mr. Ryan and they said I was a Jet.  I was really excited about it.  I’m like ‘All right, I'm excited.  When is the next flight out to New York?’  I was excited about it.  Then obviously the media circus happened and I found out a few minutes later there was a snag in the contract and I wasn't a Jet.  Then it was like five hours kind of waiting.  Coach Fox was keeping me updated on what was happening.  Then later on in the day, they said we have a few teams that are interested, similar deals.  He was very gracious to ask me what I thought.  So I talked to him very honestly about it.  I told him I would love to be a Jet.  I told him also the Jaguars are my hometown - whatever was best for them.  He said the same for me.

Ultimately, you know, they had my contract, they had all the power.  But he listened to me and what I had to say.  It was very gracious of them because they didn't have to do that.  They could have just done whatever.  But he listened to me and talked to me.  I told him I would love to be a Jet.  I love the coaches.  I had an opportunity to be with Coach Sparano at the Senior Bowl, I've had an opportunity to know Coach Ryan several times.

I also told him I would love to be a Jaguar, that was my hometown, so that would be exciting for me and whatever was best for them.  So I'm excited to be a Jet and I'm excited to be here.

On if he wants to be the starter…

I think everybody that puts on a uniform, you want to go out there and you want to play.  That's why you play the game of football.  I'm excited to be a Jet, to go out there and to help this team any way that I can.  Whatever my role is, however I can expand that role, I'm going to try to do that.  Every day in practice I'm going to go out there and compete and try to get better as a quarterback, try to figure out any ways possible to help this team any way that I can.

On how he feels that his presence on the team could create an issue…

I really don't pay too much attention to it.

I think the exciting thing is that me and Mark have a great relationship.  We have had a great relationship for the last three years I think.  We've been friends.  We've texted back and forth.  We've talked already.  We're going to have a great relationship and a great working relationship. I think we'll have a lot of fun together.

On if Coach Ryan has defined his role with the team…

I have had time to spend with Coach Ryan.  I think a lot of it has to do with how well it works, how it does in practice.  Obviously, you're not going to put something out there if it's not executed and not running well.  I think it matters how well we do, how well I can pick everything up, go out there and how well we're doing.  My goal is to go out there and try to execute as well as I possibly can and improve every single day and really feel comfortable with my role and expand that role by going out there and competing and playing well.  So I think it's just exciting that he's had faith in me and he believes in me as a football player and as a person to bring me here and make me a Jet.  I'm excited about the opportunity.

 

On how Sanchez was on the phone and how well they will work together…

Well, from my conversations with him, he was excited.  He was excited about working with me.  I'm excited about working with him.  I have a lot of respect for him as a football player, as a person.  He's always handled himself with so much class and integrity.  He's won a lot of games as a quarterback. I think we'll have a great working relationship.  We talked about that - just supporting one another in our roles.  I'm excited about that opportunity.  I think we'll have a great relationship and hopefully we'll be able to thrive together.

On if he is comfortable playing a position other than quarterback…

I think, first and foremost, I'm a football player first and then a quarterback, although that is my dream, that's what I want to be.  That's what I believe I am, is a quarterback. But however I can help the team, however I can make a difference, however they can use me, I'll be open to it and work as hard as I can every time I step on that field.  I would give my whole heart to be the best Jet I possibly can be and help this team win football games.

On why he is so excited to be a Jet…

First and foremost, it was my relationship with the coaches.  It was having football coaches that believed in you, having football coaches that saw ability in me, and having coaches that I really respected for how they coach the game, for who they were.  I've always had a great relationship with Coach Ryan.  (I have a) relationship with Coach Sparano.  (I’m) also excited about working with Coach Cavanaugh.  Also you have so much support from Mr. Johnson, from Mr. Tannenbaum.  Look at these facilities.  They don't get much better.  There's a lot of pros here, not many cons.  I'm excited about that.

On how he can make sure he does not allow his popularity become a distraction to the team…

It's an honor for all you to show up to hear me say a few words today.  I really don't feel like it will be too much of a distraction because I honestly will try not to pay too much attention to it.  The reason we're doing this today is because I have bosses, too, and they wanted me to stand up and talk to all of you.  I can blame it on them because they made me do it, so...  (Smiling).

On he thinks Sanchez will respond to the pressure of having a player so popular as his backup…

I think Mark is very secure as a football player and a person,  and who he is.  I don't think he's going to let outsiders affect how he goes about his preparation or how he plays.  I think, you know, I'm excited about my role here, too, and my opportunity, my opportunity to compete.  I think working together we'll be able to encourage one another and be stronger together than we would be apart.

On if the criticism of him as a passer is fair…

I think I'm improving every single day.  I've been working very hard in L.A. with Coach Mazzone, who is a former Jets coach, working extremely hard to improve in every area of my game.  I'm excited about my future and just improving as a quarterback, as a football player, understanding defenses, understanding the schemes, how we go about it, how we take advantage of defenses, reads, fundamentals, all those things.  I'm excited about the opportunity.  I'm excited about my future.

On his relationship with Sanchez…

When was the first time we met?  I think it might have been at the ESPYs a few years ago.  I know we had to do one appearance at a Super Bowl a few years ago where we were throwing to fans and other people.  We had a good time with that.  We had to do a question and answer at one of those Super Bowl appearances as well where we got to hang out backstage for a while and then go out and have to answer some questions.

But we've always had a great relationship every time we've been together and hung out.  He's a very classy person with a lot of integrity.  He's also fun to hang around.  I think our quarterback room will be a lot of fun.

On how much pressure he is feeling from joining the Jets…

None actually.  I don't really feel too much pressure.  Just enjoying this opportunity, how exciting it is.  I'm excited to be a Jet.  I’ve got a long way to go before OTAs or training camp.  (I’ve got to) just continue to prepare and just continue to try to improve.  I'm sure there will be some pressure leading up to it.  But, you know, I've always enjoyed pressure.  Before every time I get up and give a speech, before every practice, before every football game I play, I always get a little bit nervous.  That's something that excites me.  I think that's something that I play better when I have more on the line.  That's something that I've always tried to thrive on.  When that feeling goes away, that will probably be the time when I stop playing football.  So I'm excited about just the support that we have as a Jet, the fans, how passionate they are.

I've been very blessed in my past to have passionate fans when I was at the University of Florida.  You know, Gator Nation is very powerful and it’s everywhere.  So that was a lot of fun.  Being a Bronco, they have extremely passionate fans, which I was very blessed to have support me.  Now being a Jet, it's awesome because you have so many fans that support us as Jets and they're so passionate.  I realized that when we played the Jets last year and we were playing them at our home field, and they had a lot of fans there.  They were cheering pretty loud.  That was exciting to see.  Now being a Jet, I'm looking extremely forward to our first game to see what the atmosphere is really like.

On his relationship with Coach Ryan…

Well, my relationship with him has always been great.  We've continued to build a relationship throughout the last few years.  Just in our conversations -- he actually has the same agent I have in Jimmy Sexton.  Gosh, I'm trying to remember the first place we met. (It) might have been at a Pro Day where we met.  I know we spent some time together at the Super Bowl this year.  We got to have a great conversation there. I've always watched him.  I got to see 'Hard Knocks', see how he coached, and that was fun.  From our conversations that we've had the last few days, I think he's just excited that I'm here.  I think it's a day-by-day process to see what happens and how well the Wildcat is working.

On what his role will be…

I think it's a day-by-day process, figuring out what works, how I can fit into this team and try to make this team a little bit better.  And that's my goal, by being on this team, be a great teammate, hopefully a good asset, and someone that can help us try to win a few football games.

On if he feels the wild cat can still work in the NFL…

I think one misconception is people think that the Wildcat is just a direct snap to a running back and you fake it and you run power or outside zone or inside zone.  I think that's a big misconception because I think when you have the ability to have 11 people touch the ball -- not 11 people, but you have five or six people that have the opportunity to touch the ball on every single play, I think it can be confusing.  I think it can make defenses play slow.  I think when you have a great offensive coordinator like Coach Sparano that can put together packages and plays, not necessarily have tendencies, then I think it can be effective.

On if he takes offense to the notion that this trade is a publicity stunt…

I really don't take offense to that.  I don't think it's true because I think the Jets get a lot of support as it is and have a lot of great fans.  I don't think it has much to do with that. I think it has more to do with just some coaches believing in me and hopefully thinking that I'm an okay football player.  I'm just excited I have the opportunity to be a Jet and hopefully I can add something to this great franchise and organization.

On how he feels that he is embraced because of his faith…

Well, obviously I'm someone that is very outspoken about my faith.  I've never been ashamed of it.  Anytime I get the opportunity, I always thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because that is the most important thing to me.  But I don't think all the attention is just because of my faith.  I think sometimes it adds a little bit to it.  I'm pretty sure I'm not the first athlete that has gotten on a knee and prayed.  Somehow it's known as Tebowing, and I'm not sure why.  It probably has a little bit to do with the hype.  But, you know, I think it's not all a bad thing.  If people are still somehow talking about prayer or talking about my faith, then I think that's pretty cool.

On what advice Sanchez has given him about dealing with New York…

He did say to get ready for y'all (the media) (smiling).

It's fun.  We have a great relationship.  He just said it would be fun working together.  You spend so much time watching film in the QB room, it's so important to have people in there that you like, that you can get along with, that you can joke around with, that you can make fun of, that you can have a great time.  Just as far as that goes, we'll have a great relationship.  Also you'll have McElroy in there, Alabama guy, so that will be tough, but it should be okay.

 

On if he plans on establishing a foundation in the New Jersey area…

Absolutely.  I'm looking forward to doing things here in New Jersey and in New York, figuring out a way to just try to make a difference and to try to help.  My foundation is something that is extremely important to me, something that I'm very proud of.  I'm so proud of the 650 orphans that we support, or the 18 Timmy’s  playrooms that we're building, or the hospital in the Phillipines that we're building because ultimately I know that's more important than anything I do on the football field, the ability to brighten a kid's day, the ability to make someone smile.  We're put on a pedestal as a football player which makes us no more important or no more special than anybody else.  You have an opportunity, I believe more than that, it's a responsibility to be a good role model, to set a good example and to make a difference in kids' lives, especially kids that are looking up to you because you play football.  I can still remember when I was eight years old and Danny Wuerffel came to my church as a Florida Gators quarterback.  I was probably the 120th kid in line and I waited an hour.  But he signed all the autographs and waited until I got to him and I still remember how that made me feel as a little boy.  I still have that autograph in my parents' house in Jacksonville, Florida, because I know how it made me feel.  Sometimes we can get so busy and caught up in the hustle and bustle, forget about being a role model, setting a good example and making a difference in people's lives that are looking up to us.  Ultimately I know that my biggest goal in being here and being a football player, is to set a great example, and I'm excited about this opportunity.

On how he will handle the demand of being in New York…

You know, I feel being at the University of Florida, you have a pretty big platform there.  Then just being a quarterback for two years in the NFL gives you a pretty big platform.  Ultimately I'm just going to be myself and just have fun with it and honestly not worry about what I can't control.  It's something I learned early on at Florida is if you can't control it, don't worry about it.  Honestly, I'm just going to try to be the best teammate, try to be the best football player that I can be and try to set a good example.  Besides that, I'm not really going to worry about too much else.

On if he felt the Jets were a better fit for him than the Jaguars…

I can tell you this, I had a better relationship with the Jets coaches.  I knew them.  I know that Coach Mularkey and the coaches they have are great coaches, but I never met any of them.  I haven't had an opportunity to get to know them.  It would have been exciting.  It would have been fun to be home.  But this is exciting.  I'm so proud to be a Jet.  I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

This is a blessing for me and it's going to be a great opportunity.

On if he has to be careful in spreading his faith in New York and in the locker room…

Well, I think first and foremost it doesn't matter what market I was in, I don't think that necessarily played a big part in it. I just want to be myself.  When I'm asked about it, I won't be ashamed of saying that I serve my Lord and savior Jesus Christ.  In the locker room, it's not something that I'm super outspoken about.  It's just that's who I am and that's how I live.  I don't try to share it with a lot of guys.  I don't try to approach a lot of guys with it because I think the greatest way to share the gospel is by acting it and by them seeing who you are as a person.  That's how I approach it.  It's not by what I say, it's more about how I act and who I am as a person.  I think it is the greatest way you can have an impact on people's lives is your integrity, character and how you go about handling yourself.

On if he learned anything about himself from this process…

That's a very good question.

You know, I think I learned a lot of things about myself.  I think what also came to mind was you can't worry about what you can't control.  That was something that was reemphasized.  I think also something is you can't worry about sometimes how people can take something so little and make it big.  As far as like Tebowing goes, I've been doing that same routine for the last seven years, since my senior year in high school.  All of a sudden this last year it became a big deal that I was going to the end zone and getting on a knee before a game and praying.  I'll get up and do a few jumps and sprint down the sideline.  It's funny because all of a sudden it became a big story, but it's something I've done the last seven years.  For me it's not about changing anything, it's not about being anyone different, it's about being who I am and who I've always been and just trying to be the same person, continuing to work hard, continuing to treat people like I want to be treated, continue to do what's right and do my best.  Other than that, I really won't worry about too much else.

On if he is concerned that one of his sponsors (Jockey) placed a billboard outside of Lincoln Tunnel…

I don't think so.  Hopefully they know that I have nothing to do with that.  I don't think that it will really have an effect on the people in the locker room because there's not much I can do to control that (laughter).

On if he has an issue with discussing what his religious beliefs…

Not really.  We are at a press conference for a football team.  It's not exactly the platform to get up here and share everything you believe.  I have no problems ever sharing what I believe.  You know, I'm a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.  That is first and foremost the most important thing in my life.  For me, it's about having a relationship with Christ, and that's pretty much it.  That's the basis of what I believe.  It's exciting for me to get opportunities to share that. But at the same time this is a press conference for the New York Jets football team.  So I feel like it's an opportunity to answer questions about my opportunity to be here as a Jet, and I'm excited about that.  Anytime I get an opportunity, I'm always going to talk about Jesus Christ and what He's done in my life.

On if he feels he needs to win over the locker room…

I don't think I'm necessarily trying to win over the locker room.  I'm trying to, every day in my actions, earn a little bit of respect from the guys in the locker room, by showing up, working hard, trying to be a great teammate, trying to improve on my skills, trying to make the Jets a little bit better because I'm on this team.  Whether that is by on the field or being a great teammate or encouraging other guys, I just want to make this team a little bit better because I'm here and earn their respect a little bit at a time by how I work and who I am as a person.

On if his marketing partners are excited about him being in a larger market…

I guess.  I haven't talked to anybody about that.  It's been a little bit of a whirlwind.  It was: I was traded, I wasn't traded, I was back as a Jet, then I was on a plane here.  My whole time here has been meeting with the coaches, getting to know them, getting all the physicals, getting the paperwork done.  That's pretty much what I've been doing.  I haven't had too much time to talk to any of them.  But I guess they are pretty excited, so....

On how far he thinks the Jets can go this season…

I'm blessed to be on a very good football team, a great defense, great offensive line, great skilled athletes.  It was a great game when we played each other last year.  I'm excited to be on a football team that's a tough football team, that's a physical football team, a football team that has won a lot of games over the last few years.

Hopefully by me being here, we can be a little bit better and I can add something to this team.  That is my hope and prayer.  I'm excited to be on this football team, excited to have the support that we have.

It truly is a blessing to be on this team, to be on a team that has won so many football games.  When you watch the New York Jets play, you see a team that is physical, that wants to win, and that's exciting.  It's always a lot of fun to be on the tough team and the physical team.  I believe that's what you have when you're on the New York Jets.

On if he understands people anger about him being traded from Denver after helping the Broncos win a playoff game…

It was a special season last year, that I was able to be a part of just a little bit of, with some great teammates, some great coaches.  Will have a lot of great memories a long time from last season, some of the comebacks, some of the wins, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs.  That will always be part of my career and special memories.  They went away that they thought was best for the organization.  I'll never blame them for that.  I'm excited about being a Jet, excited about the support I have here.  I wish the Broncos nothing but the best.  They got one of the best quarterbacks to ever play this game in Peyton Manning.  He's always been extremely classy and very supportive of me.  I wish him nothing but the best.

There's no ill will towards the Broncos, Peyton Manning or anybody.  I wish them nothing but the best.  It will be a lot of fun when we get to play each other.  I wish them nothing but the best.  I know they're going to have a great team and win a lot of games this next season.  I'll always have a lot of friends on that team.  I'm always going to root for those guys 'cause we went through a lot together.

It will be exciting to watch and see how they do.  But I'm worried about being a Jet and I'm excited about being a Jet.  This is where I want to be.

On if he has a message for Giants fans…

Not really.  I'll leave that talk to other people.  I'm not qualified to get in that argument.  I'm excited to be here.  You have to congratulate the Giants on winning a Super Bowl and having a great team.  I wish them nothing but the best as well.

On how he will deal with the locker room…

Honestly it really doesn't bother me at all.  I think it's my job to come in here and try to earn guys' respect by how I work.  I want them to respect me by me coming in here and working hard, proving myself in the weight room, in sprints, when we're running, on the practice field.  I can't control doing this press conference.  You can blame the guys upstairs.  They wanted me to do that, so I have no say over that at all either.  I'm just having fun with it, make the best of whatever situation I'm dealt.

I'm so honored to be here.  It's such a blessing for me.  I'm excited about getting to know those teammates, building a relationship.  I have been able to know quite a few of them already.  I'm excited about it.

It truly is an honor to be a Jet and I'm so grateful to be here.

Thank you all.  God bless.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets are already beginning to clear salary cap space, but they know they still have a lot of work to do if they're going to be players in this year's free-agent market. They could easily help heir situation and clear more than $13 million in space by cutting their two veteran receivers who'll turn 30 and 33 in March.

With a stable of young, promising receivers on the roster, and with a team that is most definitely not ready to win now, the idea of parting ways with Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall makes a lot of sense. Of course, it was only two seasons ago where they were as good as any 1-2 punch in football.

And that could be a good thing for a new, young quarterback to have...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets began the reshaping of their roster and the first of what could be many moves to help clear salary cap space on Thursday as they released two veterans -- kicker Nick Folk and right tackle Breno Giacomini.

The moves clear about $7.5 million in salary cap space and leave the Jets somewhere around $10 million under the projected NFL salary cap. They were actually over until last week, when they declined to pick up the option on veteran left tackle Ryan Clady.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

Whatever the Jets decide to do about Darrelle Revis between now and March 11, this much is known: He is contractually guaranteed to receive $6 million of his 2017 salary, no matter what.

Or, at least, probably.

Of all the issues hanging over the Jets cornerback at the moment, from his NFL future to the four felonies and misdemeanor he's been charged with after a recent street fight in Pittsburgh, that $6 million he's owed might be the most intriguing. A "guarantee" of course is never completely guaranteed, and there is some language in his deal - both specific and vague - that could allow the Jets either recoup it or not pay it at all.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

SNY's weekly look at the top players on board for the Jets as they prepare to make the sixth overall pick of the NFL draft on April 27, complete with who's rising and who's falling throughout the process and as the Jets' potential needs change:

1.) CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State - The ides of the Jets taking a cornerback sixth overall seemed logical even before Darrelle Revis was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor after a street fight in Pittsburgh 10 days ago. He probably wasn't coming back anyway, certainly not as a corner, but the incident amplified the need at his position. The combine next week will help solidify Lattimore's status as a Top 10 player. It even could push him out of the Jets' reach and into the Top 5. (Last week: 1)...

Jets interested in Cutler? 00:02:44
Daily News Live talks about the Jets and their level of interest in quarterback Jay Cutler.

The Jets reportedly have 'some interest' in Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler when or if he is cut, CBS Sports Jason La Confora reports. One possible reason for New York's interest is the presence of new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates, who coached Cutler with the Bears and Denver Broncos.

"They believe he can play in the elements that are a reality in the AFC East," La Confora said. "And they like his moxie and arm talent. And that was well before the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their quarterback coach."

La Confora also mentions the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans as possible landing spots for the 34-year-old quarterback.

Darrelle Revis' future with the Jets was in doubt even before he was charged with four felonies for an incident outside a Pittsburgh bar back on Feb. 12. His cost, his skills, his age were all conspiring against him, and by March 11 he was surely going to end up an ex-Jet.

But while the Jets have some young corners on their roster, they don't necessarily have Revis' heir - the next shutdown corner to help lockdown their struggling secondary. Many NFL people believe they're most likely to look to the draft for Revis' replacement. But free agency could present some intriguing possibilities.

Here is a look at a few:

CB Stephon Gilmore (Bills) - For a cap-strapped team, they probably can't dip this deep into the free agent pool, especially if they decide to spend (or overspend) for a quarterback. But if they can't get one of the top quarterbacks or decide to go through the draft at that position, a free-agent corner would be a big help. And while Gilmore, 26, is no Revis-in-his-prime, he's the best on the market. The Pro Bowler had five interceptions this season and that could land him in the range of the five-year, $62.5 million deal the Giants gave Janoris Jenkins last offseason (with $28.8 million guaranteed). Of course, that's if he hits the market. He may get franchise-tagged by the Bills.

GEICO SportsNite: Darrelle Revis 00:00:19
Darrelle Revis had his preliminary hearing regarding his altercation in Pittsburgh rescheduled for March 15.

Darrelle Revis' next court appearance, which was scheduled for Thursday, will now take place six days after the start of NFL free agency -- complicating the Jets' decision even more.

The preliminary hearing for Revis to answer the charges he's been hit with stemming from an incident in Pittsburgh back on Feb. 12 was officially postponed on Tuesday afternoon and rescheduled for March 15. The hearing will take place at 12:30 p.m. in front of Judge Jeffrey Manning, and Revis is obligated to appear in person -- assuming that hearing takes place.

A lot can happen between now and then, including a plea deal, another continuation, or the charges being dropped altogether. For now, though, Revis remains charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count each of making terroristic threats, robbery, and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault as a result of an apparent street fight nine days ago that left two men knocked out on a street corner around 2:30 a.m...

New video emerges in Revis saga 00:03:06
TMZ released a video which may add new information to the Darrelle Revis assault case.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

Darrelle Revis "absolutely" did not knock out two men on a street in Pittsburgh in the early morning hours of Feb. 12 and the voice heard bragging about it on a video of the aftermath of the incident was "NOT" Revis' voice, his attorneys said.

Their denial and defense of the Jets cornerback came on Sunday night, hours after a video was published on TMZ.com that allegedly showed the aftermath of the incident that ended with Revis facing a variety of charges from Pittsburgh police. The video shows two men on the ground, seemingly unconscious, and a voice can be heard saying "I knocked both of these m---f-ers out."

Then what sounds like the same voice can be heard saying "Shut up before I knock you're a-out next."

TMZ released footage of the aftermath of the alleged altercation New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was involved in.

The video shows two men lying on the ground unconscious with the voice of another person saying, "I knocked both of these m-----f---ers out." It is not known whether or not the man speaking in the video is Revis. Teammate Brandon Marshall said he didn't believe it was Revis'.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

As bad as Darrelle Revis was last season, he kept insisting he was far from finished. Several times he made it clear he wanted to keep playing and was even willing to see if that could happen with the Jets. He seemed to be embracing his role as a future elder statesman on the team. He hinted he might accept a pay cut to stay. He even admitted he was willing to switch positions.

None of that matters anymore.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The incident that has surely ended Darrelle Revis' Jets career, and could land him in jail, began with two star-struck men who seemingly couldn't believe they had run into the NFL player on the streets of Pittsburgh in the middle of the night. They asked if he was really Revis. They didn't believe his answer.

And everything escalated from there.

Much of the confrontation from early Sunday morning is on a cell phone video, too, according to the criminal complaint filed with the Pittsburgh Police and obtained by WTAE in Pittsburgh. The evidence was strong enough for Revis to be charged on Thursday with four felonies (two counts of aggravated assault and one each of criminal conspiracy and robbery) and one misdemeanor (making terroristic threats)...

Each week, SNY will put a current player, a position, or perhaps a draft or free agent target of the Jets in the spotlight as part of our regular offseason coverage. Last week we took a look at Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears quarterback who might hit the open market in the coming weeks. This week we turn inward and look at a proud Jet who is at the center of one of the team's biggest offseason decisions:

CB Darrelle Revis.

After a miserable season in which he was a shell of his former self it seems like a pretty simple decision for the Jets to let Darrelle Revis go -- especially since he's due $15 million in salary and bonuses in 2017 and his cap number is $15.3 million...

The Jets had such high hopes for their offensive line when they acquired left tackle Ryan Clady from the Broncos last April. But the experiment is over after less than a year.

The Jets have informed Clady's agent that they do not intend to pick up his option for the 2017 season, according to an NFL source. New York had until Wednesday to make a decision before the team would owe him a $1 million roster bonus. Clady also was scheduled to make a non-guaranteed salary of $10 million this year.

SNY's weekly look at the top players on board for the Jets as they prepare to make the sixth overall pick of the NFL draft on April 27, complete with who's rising and who's falling throughout the process and as the Jets' potential needs change:

1. CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State - The Jets should soon have some clarity on the Darrelle Revis situation since cuts around the NFL have already begun and he's due a $2 million roster bonus on March 11. Assuming he's not coming back - and if he does, assuming he'll come back as a safety - this position remains one of the Jets' biggest needs. Perhaps offensive line is bigger, but at the moment few scouts seem to believe there's a tackle worthy of a Top 10 pick. The big question with Lattimore? Will he even make it out of the Top 5? A strong combine or Pro Day performance could push him out of the Jets' reach. (Last week: 1).

Mel Kiper's second Mock Draft for ESPN has the Jets selecting LSU running back Leonard Fournette with the sixth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Kiper notes that while the Jets have a quarterback problem to solve and could also draft a defender with the pick, Fournette may be the best player available and the Jets would "know they can get a ton of reps from Fournette right now, and this is a team that needs to be better."

Fournette had 129 carries for 843 yards and eight touchdowns last season for LSU, adding another 146 yards on 15 receptions...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets haven't begun to clear the salary cap room they need to be active in free agency, so it remains to be seen just how active they will be. But they'll have to do something when the signing period opens on March 9 because they have plenty of needs.

So what will they do? Last week, I took a look at five free agents who could (or should) be on the Jets' radar at several positions. This week, I'll focus on the most important position -- quarterback. The Jets will likely at least look for a quarterback-of-the-future on the market. Whether they sign one might depend on the price.

The NFL offseason may be off to a slow start, but things are surely about to pick up with cuts and contract restructures on their way, and with the scouting combine just two weeks away.

With that in mind, here is our weekly look at some of the biggest questions facing the Jets, what's new about them, where they stand on finding an answer, and if any of the issues have changed.

1. Who is their quarterback?

They of course haven't answered this yet, but they did answer who'll be coaching the quarterbacks: new offensive coordinator John Morton and new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates. Neither has an extensive resume at their current positions -- or really working with quarterbacks -- which is interesting if they're going to be entrusted with developing a young quarterback.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.tv

The Ryan Fitzpatrick Era was never supposed to happen for the Jets, and it certainly never was expected to last two roller-coaster seasons. In the end, though, it was a wild ride that rescued a franchise in one of its darkest moments before leading it back into the darkness again.

For better or for worse, the Fitzpatrick Era officially ended on Friday when the contract that the 34-year-old quarterback signed last summer automatically voided. All that's left is a $5 million cap hit the Jets must endure during the 2017 season. And memories - more than a few good ones, and plenty of bad.

So was it worth it? That all depends on your perspective, how much your sights are set on the Jets' long-term future, and how much you value all the fun that was had in 2015 during the Jets' near-playoff-miss.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall listed JJ Watt and Deion Sanders among the players he believes could be the best of all time, but one player was notably absent from his list: Tom Brady.

Marshall told NJ Advanced Media during a charity event for his Project 375 foundation that Brady is "not the best player ever," adding that his idea of the best player would be "a guy that I can put at corner, safety, defensive end, a guy that I can put back on punt return, chase down kicks." He also mentioned Reggie White and Jerry Rice as possible contenders for the best player ever, but conceded that it "would probably be impossible [to say for sure]."

Since the end of the season, the Jets have added several players to their 90-man roster. We've been looking at each of these players to determine their strengths and weaknesses.

Today we're going to look at three additions on the defensive front seven; Kenny Anunike, Frank Beltre and Jeff Luc. All three are undrafted free agents but they have different roles. Let's compare their attributes, divided into categories.

Experience

At 27, Beltre is the oldest of the three, but actually has the least NFL experience. He played three preseason games with the Chargers in 2013 but has only played in the CFL since that time.

The Jets have added four coaches to their staff for the 2017 season, hiring Jeremy Bates (quarterbacks coach), Mick Lombardi (assistant quarterbacks coach), Jason Vrable (offensive assistant) and Joe Giacobbe (strength and conditioning assistant), the team announced on Wednedsay.

Bates held the same position with the Jets in 2005 under then-head coach Herm Edwards. He was the Chicago Bears QBs coach in 2012 but was not retained and has been out of the NFL since. Lombardi was an offesnive quaity control coach with the 49ers this past season while Vrable was the assistant QBs coach for the Bills. Giacobbe was the director of player performance at Rutgers from 2012-2015.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY.TV:

As miserable as the Jets' 5-11 season was their consolation prize isn't bad. They stand to get a heck of a player with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 draft - perhaps a franchise-changing player, and maybe someone who can contribute right away.

That's no guarantee, of course, but it's a positive to focus on for a team that needs a lot of help in a lot of different areas. Maybe - just maybe - they could end up with the franchise quarterback they've been seeking for far too many years.

It's early, of course - very early - and a lot can change during free agency. But here's a look at five players the Jets might have their eyes on in the first round of the NFL draft, which takes place on April 27. SNY will be taking a weekly look at this board and charting who is rising and falling throughout the combine and Pro Day season, and as the Jets' potential needs change:

With one month to go until the NFL free-agent signing period opens on March 9, the Jets have some work to do. They have to make several cuts and restructure several contracts just to get under the 2017 salary cap, which figures to be somewhere around $168 million.

How active they'll be in free agency depends on how much cap room they're able to clear. It also depends on how much -- if anything -- they devote to finding a starting quarterback on the free-agent market.

Now that the Super Bowl is over, the New York Jets can begin cleaning up the wreckage from their 5-11 season and start yet another rebuilding project. Despite being on the cusp of the playoffs a year ago, they seem farther away than ever now.

With that in mind, here are some of the biggest questions the Jets must answer this offseason. We'll check back in each week to see how they're doing, whether any of the questions have been answered, and whether any have changed:

The New York Jets are targeting former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates to be their new quarterbacks coach, The MMQB's Albert Breer reports.

The organization had Bates, who was the Jets' quarterbacks coach in a 4-12 2005 season which featured five different quarterbacks, including Brooks Bollinger, in mind for their offensive coordinator vacancy before they signed John Morton, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Bates served as the Chicago Bears' quarterbacks coach in 2012 and Seahawks offensive coordinator in 2010.

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

Pete Carroll and Darrell Bevell of the Seahawks may forever be known for the single dumbest play call in Super Bowl history, when they called for a pass instead of a run from the 1 yard line at the end of Super Bowl XLIX, leading to a Malcolm Butler interception and handing the Patriots a championship.

But Dan Quinn and Kyle Shanahan of the Falcons gave that inexplicable decision a run for its money on Sunday night.

Their brain-frozen play calling with four minutes left in Super Bowl LI snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and gift-wrapped a championship opportunity to the Patriots again. In a span of three mind-boggling plays, they went from being well within range of a game-sealing field goal to punting the ball away and putting it back in Tom Brady's hands...

Ralph Vacchiano, SNY:

The Jets and their fans have endured 48 years of pain without a Super Bowl, made worse by 12 years without a division title and now six straight years without a trip to the playoffs. It has to hurt more that the dominant team of this era is from their own division, led by a coach (Bill Belichick) they once had for one day in 2000 and a quarterback (Tom Brady) they, like everyone else, passed over in the 2000 draft.

So watching the Patriots' epic comeback and 34-28 overtime win in Super Bowl LI on Sunday night had to be especially painful.

But don't worry: There's a good chance the pain is going to get much worse.
