Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that the Jets and Revis' camp have discussed the possibility of a reunion, 11 months after the Jets traded the Pro Bowl cornerback to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following an acrimonious salary dispute.
Revis was released Wednesday after the Bucs were unable find a trading partner for the star. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported multiple teams called to inquire about Revis' availability prior to his release.
Mehta reported that Revis would like to return to play for Jets coach Rex Ryan, and the belief is that the feeling is mutual. It's unclear if Jets owner Woody Johnson has any intention of rekindling the flame with one of the franchise's greatest -- and most frustrating -- players.
One potentially important factor at play here: Revis has been strongly linked to the New England Patriots, who have a need at cornerback after Aqib Talib signed with the conference rival Denver Broncos on Tuesday night.
One member of the Revis camp told Mehta he was convinced Revis will be playing in Foxborough.
