Revis: Hartline Tannehill's go-to, Bess on 3rd down


The New York Jets get star cornerback Darrelle Revis back this week, and it couldn't come at a more "meh" time, at least in terms of matchups.

Gang Green faces one of the league's least-decorated and lukewarm receiving corps Sunday in the Miami Dolphins, but Revis isn't taking his opposition lightly.

"They still have two great receivers in [Brian] Hartline and [Davone] Bess," Revis told the media Friday.

Apparently the word "great" is easily thrown around in the Revis household, but we see where he's going with it. Revis went on to explain each receiver's role in Miami's rookie-led offense.

"[Ryan] Tannehill, his go-to-guy is Hartline," Revis said. "He looks for him a lot. On third downs, he looks for Davone Bess.

"We’re familiar with those guys. Our secondary is familiar with them. We played them the last couple of years. We feel pretty good coming into this Sunday and we’re going to compete. We will compete."

Hartline leads the team in receptions with 12, and Bess is second with eight. Neither player has a touchdown through two games.
