santana Icon : (14 May 2015 - 03:00 PM) well hes been with the jets for years he was in charge of college scouting
santana Icon : (14 May 2015 - 03:00 PM) jets just let him go this year
santana Icon : (14 May 2015 - 03:00 PM) so im sure he will take a similar role with the dolphins as well as provide them a lot of insight about the jets

NJAzrael71 Icon : (14 May 2015 - 06:52 PM) Looks like Mo is going to get at least 40M guaranteed on his new deal. Mac reiterated that the team has allocated the funds for him.
santana Icon : (14 May 2015 - 07:49 PM) Morataaaaaaaaa the bastard child sent away has come back!

azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:05 PM) Santana could be the new ball boy for the Pats.
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:05 PM) Since they fired the guys who are completely innocent
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:06 PM) Santana can you deflate a bag of balls in under 90 seconds?
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:11 PM) Colin Kaepernick is rumored to be back on the block. I wonder if his price has dropped.
santana Icon : (17 May 2015 - 03:45 PM) Eagles should get him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 May 2015 - 06:17 PM) What is the status in the contract with Mo?

Mr_Jet Icon : (19 May 2015 - 10:33 PM) at #4
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 09:20 AM) BAN MR_JET
Mr_Jet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 11:58 AM) LOL. It's not where you pick, it's who you pick. Knicks fans should remember Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul were both #4 picks also.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 02:32 PM) Chan Gailey says Geno is the starter heading into the season. I believe Fitzpatrick is hurt and probably won't even make the roster due to injury otherwise Fitzpatrick should have got a fair shake.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 03:08 PM) egno did look really good in that last game.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 03:08 PM) he just makes too many dumb mistakes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:23 PM) No excuses for Geno, we have a very good team and its up to the QB to not screw it up
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:43 PM) lol go back to the color coded sanchez system rex had
azjetfan Icon : (20 May 2015 - 06:48 PM) RACIST!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2015 - 11:50 AM) Sign Wilkerson damnit!!
azjetfan Icon : (21 May 2015 - 02:01 PM) They will. He isn't in any rush to get into a voluntary mini camp
azjetfan Icon : (21 May 2015 - 02:01 PM) They aren't pushing it either

Robert Kraft: Darrelle Revis took less money to come to Patriots
By Will Brinson | NFL Writer
March 24, 2014 4:08 pm ET


More NFL offseason: Mock Drafts | Prospect Rankings | Pro Days | Top free agents

ORLANDO -- Acquiring the services of Darrelle Revis isn't easy and it's certainly not cheap. But if you believe Patriots owner Robert Kraft, New England got a deal when they signed the cornerback to a one-year, $12 million deal in free agency this offseason.

Kraft said at the 2014 NFL owners' meetings that Revis could have gotten "considerably more money" by going to another team but chose New England instead.

"Here's a young man who really much had his choice of any team he wanted in the NFL and he came to us," Kraft said. "He could have gotten considerably more money going to other teams. He still came to us and I think he knows we're committed to winning as an organization. I really believe his priority is trying to win."

Kraft pointed out that he thinks Revis, who he's met with this offseason, has focused more on the importance of winning as opposed to the importance of making money moving forward.

"He's really [stepped up] his commitment to training. I know he's gone to Arizona he really wants to win," Kraft said. "And part of it, sometimes I think young men come in the NFL and they come from modest backgrounds financially and they're able to make a lot of money and it's a turn on. I think of myself in business when I started out and then you realize what's important and I think he's trying to find a balance of making a very comfortable income but at the same time he wants to win.

"There's no doubt in my mind that football's very important to him and he wants to win. And the same is true is with everyone else we've signed this offseason."

Revis and Brandon Browner -- who Kraft says the Patriots did their due diligence on -- should become a formidable duo at cornerback for New England once Browner returns from his four-game suspension.

Given how well New England's done the last decade, there's a good chance Revis will get plenty of chances to taste victory.

It doesn't hurt that he'll collect a "lesser" sum like $12 million in the process either.

He got $16 mil per year with the Patriots, that magic number he loves. 2 years $32 mil, with the 2nd year being a option so either he gets $25 mil in 2015 or hits the open market to get paid again.

If this is true I'm glad he passed on the jets

That's a lot of monies to tie up for a cb

Yeah he's great but jets aren't exactly just one great cb away from a title
