If nothing else, Darrelle Revis gets points for honesty. After six seasons with the Jets, he was traded to the Buccaneersin the offseason where he signed a six-year, $96 million deal, including $16 million this season.

Yep, it would appear so.

The Jets are currently 5-4, the No. 6 team in the AFC, and two games behind the Patriots in the division. The best thing you can say about the Bucs is that there wasn't a MRSA outbreak last week.
