NY JETS: Darrelle Revis: 5th Best Player in NFL

How good was Darrelle Revis last season? According to, the stats-oriented web site for hardcore fans, the Jets' All-Pro cornerback 
was the fifth-best player in the NFL

In case you're wondering, the top four were Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, 49ers DE Justin Smith, Saints QB Drew Brees and Lions WR Calvin Johnson. PFF released its top 101 just last week. The only other Jets on the list are DT Sione Pouha (36) and C Nick Mangold (46). 

Here are some ridiculous numbers on Revis, as compiled by PFF: 

• He allowed just 41.2 percent of all targets to be completed. 

• He led NFL with a QB rating of 45.6 on passes into his coverage (among qualifying corners). 

• He allowed just 26.1% of targets in fourth quarter to be caught for a QB rating of 1.3. 

• He recorded 20 total pass breakups (interceptions + passes defensed). 

• He allowed just one touchdown all season despite 85 targets (eat your heart out, Stevie Johnson). 

The current storyline with Revis has shifted to off the field -- i.e. his contract situation. He has two years, $13.5 million remaining on a four-year contract, and Revis is thought to be seeking a new deal. Recently, he didn't rule out the possibility of holding out of training camp as a way to get a deal done. Things have been rather quiet the last two weeks. Too quiet.
