Revis working out, feels good but has a 'ways to go'


Stop the presses. Darrelle Revis is working out.

"The knee is still feeling pretty good but still have a ways to go," Revis said.

That's good news for the Jets, who were without their best player for most of the 2012 season. Antonio Cromartie was stellar in spelling for Revis as the team's No. 1 corner, but Gang Green took their lumps on the other side of the field with marginal players assuming Cromartie's old role.

Revis is due $6 million in 2013, which is also the final year of his current contract, according to Rotoworld. Instead of holding some leverage over the Jets like he did last time he was seeking a new deal, Revis now has a year to prove that he can get back to being the elite player he was before the injury.
