Darrelle Revis has pins removed from wrist after surgery

The New York Jets have one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL in Darrelle Revis and it looks like they will have him back healthy for the 2016 season. He had surgery on his wrist in March and he is now on the road to recovery.

It was reported by ESPN’s Rich Cimini early Sunday morning that Revis had the pins removed from his wrist on Saturday. He still has at least two months of rehab to go, which means he will miss offseason workouts, which end on June 16 near his scheduled return.

Despite not being about to lift weights, Revis can work on his cardio during his recovery time and stay in good shape. This could be a blessing as it opens the door for young players like Dexter McDougle and Marcus Williams as well as Dee Milliner, the 2014 first round pick who has not played since October of that year.

Darrelle Revis is the clear leader in the secondary and on the defense for the Jets and his presence on the field certainly makes everyone better. He returned to the team last year after spending the 2013 season in Tampa Bay and the 2014 season in New England.

He had a good year for the team, recording five interceptions, adding to his Jets’ career total of 24, and nine pass deflections.
