ESPN reports that Jets CB Darrelle Revis has agreed to a $32 million dollar guaranteed deal with the New York Jets.
If you bet "no" on Revis sitting out the entire season, you were correct.
That's a lot of money to keep him warm on that island.

The Buffalo Bills cut two former college star receivers: James Hardy and Chad Jackson. James Hardy was a prospect with a ton of potential with his 6'6 frame but never showed any flashes in Buffalo. Maybe going to a team with a better QB will help.
Chad Jackson the former Patriots WR was a second round pick who many thought was a steal at the time he came out of Florida. I remember many blogs mocking him to the Denver Broncos. He would later play for the Broncos and be cut there as well... UFL is the next stop for Chad unfortunately.
More notable names on the cut list today include TJ Houshmandzadeh, Matt Jones, Pat White, Macho Harris, Bobby Carpenter, and "Regular Speed" Willie Parker.
Breaking news is that Matt Leinart will be released later today. The former #10 overall selection has been benched and now booted off the team after publicly addressing head coach Ken Wisenhunt.
So what do I think? First of all this is good for Matt. They didn't want him anyways, and he is still young enough to go compete elsewhere. But where exactly is elsewhere? I'm not sure but I am going to guess Matt finds his way to Southern California someway. Maybe as the Chargers backup. You never know.
All in all, it is going to be interesting to see if he can get his career back started.

DUN DUN DUN
Marcel Dareus has been ruled ineligible for the first two games of Alabama's season. Darues allegedly went to a party in Miami, and his travel expenses were paid for by some sort of an agent or benefactor. Several North Carolina players are also hooked up in this scandal as well.
All this drama for going to Miami? You would think these guys were on King James status.
According to ESPN, the school will appeal the suspension.
We will see what happens.
