Revis: 'I want Chad to come here and play for us'

The New York Jets have a pile of people leaving via free agency after this season and a few of them are wide recivers (Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Brad Smith).

Even if they don't bring those guys back, there might be another option: Chad Ochocinco.

Well, at least if Darrelle Revis has his way -- according to Metro in New York, the wide receiver's been lobbying Ochocinco to join him in the Big Apple. 

"I want Chad to come here and play for us, to be a Jet," Revis said. "I've been in his ear a lot about it this week ... I think he could do well here. I've been telling him to come here."

Ochocinco would actually work out alright with the Jets, because he's a talented wideout (even if he's lost some of his speed) who can still produce and he'd fit especially nicely on the other side of the field from Santonio Holmes.

But there's the small matter of everyone putting up with him. Ocho is a notorious publicity-hound and there's nowhere with a stronger media spotlight in New York.

Though that might seem like a perfect union, the city and the player aren't the only ones who have to put up with the experience. The New York fans would have to be on board (not a problem until he fails to produce) and then there's the collateral damage that is every single other person unable to tune out the noise coming out of the potential new partnership.

Still, the Jets have't shied away from acquiring players of Ochocinco's ilk, so while we can hope it doesn't happen, there's really no reason to rule out the possibility.

I hope he does go to the Jets, he likely will do well and he will be an addition by subtraction from Cincinnati...

Would be a PERFECT fit for him.
He would not only be allowed to be a circus performer both on and off the field, it would actually be encouraged.
Any chance Revis can convince Sexy Rexy to bring his friend Turdell along as well?
That should go over well. When Sanchez forgets which team to throw to again, both Ocho and Turdell can go off on him on the sidelines....

Santonio Holmes and Braylon for Ocho and Turdell? Works for me

Revis: 'I want Chad to come here and play for us'

Well that is the best news I have heard all day. A player whose future with the team was uncertain last year because he wanted to be the highest paid player at his position (and they weren't sure they wanted to listen) is giving his blessing for the organization that pays him to play, not to be an advisor, to give his opinion. Darrelle needs to stick to playing his game and preventing one hand catches to players that he should be able to cover and stop coming up with sayings like "Revis' Island" and stop advising his team as to whom he feels they should sign.

Go ahead, get him, then he can talk noise like the other players and their fat, obnoius coach and still not be in the big game.
