Revis back to the Jets could be in the cards

Traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for multiple draft picks last offseason, former New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis could find himself back in a familiar place if all the right chips fall into place for Gang Green.

You probably felt terrible when your best friend moved to a brand new far away place and you thought you would never see them again. You recalled all those great moments you had with him by your side and always thought you would be best friends forever.

Most Jets fans thought that when Darrelle Revis was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for multiple draft picks that it would spell the end of his career with the Green and White. But now there is big news coming from the pirate ship in Western Florida.

As of right now the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are discussing with several teams the possibility of trading No. 24 out of Tampa due to the $16 Million he is owed for this upcoming season and with the moves the Jets have done to shed their salary cap problems, I think this would be a great move to bring him back to the fold.

Could you imagine seeing him mentor Dee Milliner along with Ed Reed helping him out, at the same time seeing him play this loaded and young front seven along with an improving secondary. Revis can transform Gang Green's unit into the best defense not just in the AFC East, but in the entire NFL.

The Jets are nearly $40 Million under the cap and if it's the $16 Million that Revis wants then it would be a great deal to bring him back where he belongs. If this move does happen either in a trade or the Bucs cut Revis by this Wednesday then it would be a no-brainer to bring him back home. Many players who have come to New York to play for any of the sports teams and left made their return, like Mark Messier and Alexei Kovalev of the New York Rangers or the former New York Yankees manager Billy Martin who made more than just one return to the team he played for and managed in the past.

Now it's time to wait and see what the Jets will do with free agent frenzy going on and who they will bring over to strengthen this team on both sides of the ball. If Revis does make a return not only will this be a top caliber defense, but every single Jets fan who bought a Revis jersey can take them out of the closet and put it back on for the 2014 season.
