Revis has agreed to terms with the Jets, according to his agents Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod.

Financial terms have not been disclosed, but Revis will return to the Jets after the Patriots declined his $20 million contract option for 2015. Revis turns 30 in July and is entering his ninth NFL season, but he re-established himself as one of the premier corners in the game in 2014, two years after tearing his ACL. However, opposing teams' hesitance to throw his way makes Revis a below-average IDP option, as he recorded a modest 47 tackles (41 solo), one forced fumble and two interceptions last season.

The Patriots will decline to pick up their contract option on Revis, ESPN.com reports.

If they had, Revis would have been slated to count $25 million against the team's salary cap in 2015, so the move was not unexpected in the absence of a contract extension. Unless the two sides come to a new agreement before Tuesday afternoon, Revis is on track to hit NFL free agency, and while the Patriots would clearly like to bring him back, they'll have plenty of competition for Revis' services in such a scenario.

With safety Devin McCourty having agreed to a five-year, $48.7 million deal to remain with the Patriots, the team's focus in advance of free agency has turned to Revis' contract situation, the Boston Herald reports.

Under his current deal with the Patriots, should the team pick up the cornerback's $12 million option bonus, Revis would count $25 million against the franchise's salary cap in 2015. With such a staggering monetary figure in play, more plausible scenarios involve the team either coming to terms with Revis on an extension, or releasing him, which would allow him to enter free agency. If the latter occurs, the Patriots would presumably have serious competition for Revis' services, with the Jets mentioned as one possible contender on that front.

Revis (hamstring) returned to Sunday's game against the Bengals in the fourth quarter, after missing just one play.

The one play was a 17-yard touchdown to A.J. Green, who has otherwise been shadowed by Revis for most of the night. After a long New England field-goal drive, the star cornerback returned to the field.

Revis left Sunday's game against the Bengals in the third quarter with a hamstring injury, and his return is questionable.

Revis had been doing a great job against A.J. Green, who scored a 17-yard touchdown on the first play after the cornerback's injury. With Brandon Browner inactive, the Patriots will give Kyle Arrington and Logan Ryan more playing time in Revis' absence.

Revis was on the field for 65-of-74 snaps on defense in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports.

Revis, who missed the final nine snaps of the game because of cramping, recorded one tackle in the game, a reminder that his fantasy counting numbers often don't reflect his value to his team's defense in real terms.

The Patriots are reportedly trying to extend Revis' contract with the team, the Boston Globe reports.

Revis signed a two-year, $32 million deal with the Patriots in March, which includes a team option for the second year that includes a $12 million roster bonus and a hefty cap hit of $25 million. With those terms in mind, and given how much he has impressed the team with his skills thus far, it's no wonder that the Patriots are looking to work on his deal, with an eye toward keeping the shut-down cornerback around beyond 2014.

According to Darrelle Revis' trainer, Brett Fischer, the cornerback's surgically-repaired knee is 100 percent and no longer an issue or talking point.

"He's so fired up," Fischer said. "I think fans in New England are going to see a guy who is even better than in the past because he has rehabilitated himself from the ACL. . It's a non-factor." Revis will be full-go for the offseason program.

ESPN New York reports the Jets weren't interested in Darrelle Revis before he signed with the Patriots.

There was considerable sound and fury about a potential Revis reunion with the Jets, but according to reporter Rich Cimini, Gang Green never reached out. Speaking on a Monday conference call, Revis claimed as many as 26 teams inquired, but the Jets have moved on from the Revis era (and it's massive salaries). It's probably for the best that the sides didn't try to recapture the past.
