Revis: "I'll Be Ready."

The Jets anticipate having cornerback Darrelle Revis on the field and ready to play come Monday night.

Florham Park, NJ – Jets head coach Rex Ryan anticipates having recently arrived All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis on the field for the season opener against Baltimore on Monday night.

Revis, who ended a 36-day holdout on Monday by signing a new four-year contract with the Jets, was a potential red flag in the Jets secondary due to him only having practiced for one week with the team. The Jets envision him being on the field and starting against the Ravens. He even hinted earlier this week that the Ravens might target him because he didn't play in the preseason.

The lack of sharpness or gameplay doesn't concern the Jets head coach.

"No I don't," said Ryan when asked if he thought Revis would be held back from playing in the game. "I think he's going to be fine."

Simply put, Revis said he will be ready and playing on Monday night.

"When Monday comes, I'll be ready," Revis said. "I'm ready to go, I'm 100%. I know the gameplan."

The Jets cornerback said that during his month plus holdout which kept him from the entirety of training camp and caused him to miss all four preseason games, he maintained a steady workout regimen. Citing that he never knew when his new contract might be finalized, Revis said he was preparing as if it would happen at any moment and was "working out all the time."

This leads Revis to think he's ready to play, even with less than a week of practice under his belt.

"It's really not physical, it is mental most of the time," Revis said.
