Revis returns to the Jets

The AFC East keeps getting more and more interesting.
Cornerback Darrelle Revis, two years after being traded by the Jets to the Buccaneers, has agreed to terms to return to the Jets.
Revis became a free agent earlier today, after the Patriots decided not to pick up a $20 million option for 2015.
The Jets likely offered considerably more than the Patriots.  It’s believed that Revis would have taken less to return to New England.
The move comes at a time when tampering charges are still pending against the Jets based on comments made by owner Woody Johnson after the 2014 season ended.  It’ll be interesting to see whether the Jets make a separate charge based on allegations of more recent tampering, including a leak to the New York Daily News that Johnson was pushing the front office to sign Revis and/or that the Jets were negotiating with Revis while he was still under contract with the Patriots.
Last year, Johnson had no interest in Revis after he was cut by the Buccaneers.  It’s unclear why or how he changed his mind.
