Darrelle Revis gets MRI in New York, says 'I'm all good'

Darrelle Revis is back in New York — at least for now.  The New York Jets star cornerback — who could be an ex-Jet as early as this week — arrived for an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan Monday morning wearing a Chicago Bulls cap.  He said, "I'm all good," as he went in for the test.

Asked how the MRI went on their way out of the Upper East Side hospital, Revis' agent Jonathan Feinsod replied, "good."

Revis got the MRI on the same day the Jets' offseason workout program was beginning out in Florham Park, N.J.  The All-Pro cornerback — whose name keeps getting tossed around in trade talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — is expected to join the team later in the day.

The Jets have made it clear that even though Revis is unlikely to be with the team this season, under his contract, Revis would forfeit a $1 million roster bonus, a $1 million workout bonus and a $1 million bonus for showing up at training camp if he doesn't complete 80% of the team's offseason workouts.

While he would prefer staying in Arizona and working out at the Fischer Sports facility in Phoenix where he spends his offseason, Revis knows a lot of money is at stake.

The Jets have held firm on holding the $3 million if he doesn't honor the terms of his contract, forcing Revis to come back despite his injury situation and a potential trade.

Revis appears to be making strides in his rehab; last week on NFL Network, he was seen running on a treadmill.
