Easily the best signing of the offseason for the Jets was the one that brought the return of Darrelle Revis. In the 2013 offseason, Revis was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which turned out to be a total disaster of a trade for the Buccaneers. After giving up a first-round pick for Revis, he would leave the Buccaneers after one sub-par season, in which he was recovering from the ACL surgery.

Revis would sign with the New England Patriots last season, and looked like the Revis of old. The Patriots would win the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, as Revis was a crucial part to their defense, which despite some injuries was much improved in 2014. Signing Revis strengthens the Jets and weakens the rival Patriots, which is a good thing for New York.

The Jets didn’t make the most of their opportunity in the 2014 offseason to re-sign Revis, but once again Maccagnan would fix an Idzik mistake. Revis signed a five-year, $70 million contract to return to the Jets. Revis has his Super Bowl ring with the Patriots already, and now starting in 2015, he will be trying to help the Jets win their first championship since 1969.
