Who will Darrelle Revis Cover?

With arch nemesis Randy Moss now in Tennessee, who will Darrelle Revis cover?

Will he shadow one receiver or move around all night? Head coach Rex Ryan wasn’t giving out any hints. “We’re not saying who he’s on or is not on,” said Ryan.

ESPN New York’s Richi Cimini took a stab at answering that question.

Best bet: Revis will see a lot of WR Deion Branch, one of Tom Brady’s go-to guys. You also could see Revis on one of the Patriots’ talented rookie tight ends, Aaron Hernandez or Rob Gronkowski, who has been a big factor over the last four games. Or maybe even Wes Welker, who leads the Patriots with 65 receptions.

“That guy, he makes up his own routes — in a good way,” Revis said of Welker. “He took slot receiving to another level. He’s exceptional. His footwork is great, reading coverages … everything. He’s the best, to me, in the league.”

Revis could be on Welker at times, but Revis isn’t accustomed to playing in the slot, where Welker usually lines up. Clearly, the Jets hope to use the Revis mystery to their advantage, trying to keep the Patriots off-balance. Revis, too, is being coy.
