FLORHAM PARK Darron Lee Jerseys 2019 , N.J. (AP)Darrelle Revis officially shut down his dominant playing career by signing one final contract.The seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback who routinely frustrated opposing receivers with his blanket-like coverage officially retired Tuesday as a member of the New York Jets – the team with which Revis spent eight of his 11 NFL seasons.The 33-year-old Revis inked a one-day deal with the Jets at a ceremonial news conference at the team’s facility after he announced last Thursday on social media that he was done playing.Former teammates, including D’Brickashaw Ferguson, and several current players attended, along with owner Christopher Johnson, general manager Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles.”It’s been amazing,” Revis said of his career. ”My work ethic and my study habits I feel propelled me to strive to be one of the greatest. It took a lot of work, week in and week out, to prepare and play at the highest level and covering some of the toughest receivers in the world.”He was known for his uncanny ability to shut down receivers and the nickname ”Revis Island” grew in popularity as receivers were routinely left ”stranded” without being much of a factor in games because of the cornerback’s airtight coverage.In a clever nod to the nickname, the Jets set up a makeshift ”island” outside of the facility’s main entrance, complete with sand dunes and three small palm trees and had Revis pose in front of it for photos.The team also issued green lapel pins that read ”REVIS ISLAND” at the top with the Jets logo on the bottom and Revis’ familiar No. 24 featured in the middle in front of a small island.”As I look at it now and as I take some time to really assess what I’ve done and what really happened, it’s amazing, it’s amazing,” Revis said. ”You leave a legacy behind that players can follow, they can mimic and they can study your film, too.”Revis also gained notoriety for his business savvy at the bargaining table and made more than $120 million during his career.He had several contract squabbles during his time with the Jets after being the No. 14 overall pick in 2007 out of Pittsburgh, including a lengthy holdout that was documented on HBO’s ”Hard Knocks” in 2010. Led by then-agents Jon Feinsod and Neil Schwartz White Jordan Jenkins Jersey , mother Diana Gilbert and uncle Sean Gilbert, a former NFL defensive tackle, Team Revis was a force to be reckoned with.After contentious contract negotiations in 2013, Revis was dealt to Tampa Bay for first- and fourth-round draft picks. He was a member of the Buccaneers for just one season before being released and signing with New England as a free agent – and winning the Super Bowl with the Jets’ biggest rival.Revis became a free agent again, and returned home to the Jets by signing a five-year, $70 million contract, including $39 million guaranteed in 2015. After a solid first season back, Revis struggled with injuries and consistency in 2016 and was released. He finished up his career by playing in five games for Kansas City last season.”I would’ve loved to play my whole career here and wear the green and white until I actually retired,” Revis said. ”Things happen. Team acquisitions come in and there’s a different direction a team may want to go. You know, it happens. It really does, and that’s kind of how I can sum that up.”Revis finished with 29 career interceptions, and returned three for touchdowns, including one for 100 yards against Miami in 2011. He was a four-time first-team All-Pro selection, including in what was his most dominant season in 2009, when he was beaten out by Charles Woodson for Defensive Player of the Year honors.That was a rare time Revis lost out to anyone in his prime, especially that season. Randy Moss – whom Revis acknowledged was the toughest he ever covered – Terrell Owens Jordan Jenkins Jersey 2019 , Chad Ochocinco, Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne all struggled against the Jets star.”His dominance at the cornerback position is legendary,” Christopher Johnson said of Revis. ”Forget giving up the catch. We were all shocked when quarterbacks would dare to attempt a pass in his direction.”Revis wouldn’t reveal specifically on what the future holds for him, but acknowledged that staying around the game in some capacity is likely – perhaps in a coaching role somewhere.”It’s a love, it’s a passion for me,” Revis said of football. ”I’m surely going to miss it. … I’ll weigh my options and see.”A trip to Canton, Ohio, and induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame could also be on the agenda in the next five years or so.”I accomplished a lot in my career and the assignments that I had to face during my career takes a lot of toll on your body, week in and week out,” Revis said of why he chose to retire now. ”Every day my purpose was not to just be the best at my position, but to be the best player on the field. That was my motivation.”I came out to practice and tried to set a tone, and game day, I tried to set a tone.”— PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Sam Darnold watched the preseason finale from the sideline like most starters, but Jets coach Todd Bowles isn’t ready to name the rookie his No. 1 quarterback.“I haven’t made a decision or talked to anybody about it,” Bowles said after New York’s 10-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.Eagles coach Doug Pederson also wouldn’t say whether Carson Wentz or Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles would be under center for Philadelphia in Week 1. Wentz is still recovering from knee surgery last December and is waiting for medical clearance to play though he’s taking reps in practice.“I’ve got the rest of the team to prepare and whoever it is, we have to prepare the same way White Leonard Williams Jerseys ,” Pederson said.Darnold had an impressive camp after competing with Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown. Bridgewater was traded to New Orleans on Wednesday.“If I’m the starter, I’ll be really comfortable,” Darnold said. “I feel really comfortable with the offense, really comfortable with the guys in this locker room. Just excited for whatever opportunity comes my way. If not, I’ll be the best backup I can be.”The final tuneup was for players mostly competing for roster spots instead of starting jobs.Philadelphia’s Christian Hackenberg tossed two interceptions and lost a fumble, but Joe Callahan threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Matt Jones with 18 seconds left to help Philadelphia (1-3) avoid a winless preseason.Hackenberg didn’t take a snap in two seasons with the Jets after he was selected in the second round of the 2016 draft. He signed with the Eagles earlier in the month as the fifth quarterback and has no chance to make the roster so he was playing for his next job.“There are some things I’m disappointed in and there are a lot of good takeaways,” Hackenberg said.After replacing Callahan in the first half, Hackenberg threw two picks on his first three drives. He drove the Eagles from the 1 to the Jets 20 in the final 90 seconds of the first half, but ran out of time after a 19-yard scramble.The former Penn State star also lost a fumble and finished 7 of 16 for 69. He ran for 66 yards.Callahan returned to play the fourth quarter and threw an interception in the end zone with 4:02 left. But he completed his last seven passes, including the TD to Jones.Jason Myers kicked field goals of 58 and 43 yards for the Jets (1-3). New York’s defense didn’t allow a touchdown in August until the final drive.Jake Elliott nailed a 55-yarder for Philadelphia’s only points in the last two games.McCown started for New York and John Wolford played the final 2 1/2 quarters. McCown was 3 of 8 for 26 yards.Wolford was about to accept an internship at an equity firm in Winston-Salem, North Carolina before the Jets offered him a job on Sunday. He participated in rookie minicamp in May and practiced with the team for three days this week before seeing his first action. Wolford finished 8 of 20 for 89 yards and one interception.TRADING TEDDYBowles said the decision to trade Bridgewater was made because the Saints made an offer too good to refuse. The Jets received a third-round pick and also sent New Orleans a sixth-rounder.“We love Teddy, but it was good value,” Bowles said.INJURIESEagles: WR Alshon Jeffery will be activated from the physically unable to perform list on Friday and his status is day to day, though it’s unlikely he’ll be ready for Week 1 after offseason shoulder surgery.IT’S A NEW YEARAfter meeting with team leaders, Pederson has decided to have the Super Bowl champions sign in Philadelphia’s locker room removed because players want it to be clear this is a new season.GOAL-LINE STANDPhiladelphia’s Aziz Shittu stopped Thomas Rawls on fourth down at the Eagles 1 late in the second quarter. The Jets began the drive at the 8 after J.J. Wilcox intercepted Hackenberg’s pass and returned it 25 yards.LEG UPMyers could’ve solidified his roster spot by going 2 for 2. He was competing with Taylor Bertolet for the job after being claimed off waivers last week from Jacksonville. Bertolet made a 19-yarder.ANTHEMEagles safety Malcolm Jenkins waited in the tunnel during the anthem.UP NEXTJets: at Detroit on Monday night Sept. 10.Eagles: host Atlanta in a playoff rematch in the NFL opener next Thursday night.
