Darrelle Revis will report to Jets on Monday; still could be traded
The Jets cornerback, the talk of offseason trade rumors, intends to participate in the team's offseason programs and collect the $3 million in bonuses he is due.
Revis, a corner at the center of trade talks for months now, left Arizona, where he has been rehabbing from a torn ACL, and will report for the start of New York's offseason program after meeting with doctors in the morning.

Revis must participate in 80 percent of New York's offseason program in order to receive the $3 million in bonuses he is due, and he intends to do so. Ideally, he would prefer to continue rehabbing in Arizona until his trade situation is resolved, but the Jets denied his request to do so, as previously reported. A trade with Tampa Bay is still possible between now and once the Bucs are on the clock with the 13th overall pick in the draft.
Revis, an All-Pro corner, has spent his entire career with the Jets and is set to make $6 million this season, the final year of his deal. New York has never initiated any attempt to extend his contract and the team cannot franchise Revis in 2014, and thus risk losing him for only a compensatory pick in return.
