Keeping track of the NFL teams interested in the services of New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis can be a daunting task. But fear not, football fans. You can find a comprehensive list of interested teams all in one place.
This is the unofficially official 2013 Darrelle Revis Interest List. Here are the teams, in no particular order, that would be interested in Darrelle Revis, should the Jets decide to make him available in trade talks:
The Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams
Here is the list of teams not interested in the services of Darrelle Revis:
Also, it should be noted that the New York Mets are looking for outfield help and would likely also be interested in Revis as a centerfielder, despite Revis never picking up a baseball bat in his adult life.
In case that was a case of “too long, didn’t read,” here is a video listing the NFL teams interested in Revis:
All jokes aside, of course every single team in the league will have some degree of interest in Darrelle Revis. He is the best player at his position, and he can do things that few in the history of the game could ever do.
His ability to take a team’s best receiver and completely neutralize him allows the Jets to scheme their other ten defenders in advantageous ways, such as using an extra safety in the box on running plays, for example.
Revis impacts offenses in ways that few defenders can, and any team that doesn’t show some level of interest in Revis is either delusional or crazy. He’s that good. ACL recovery be damned.

Until the Jets make a final decision on Revis, don’t be fooled by obvious click-bait when it comes to “new” rumors about team X or team Y and their supposed interest in Revis. That’s hogwash. (Hey, this is a family website.)
The truth is, there are 32 NFL teams that would love to have Darrelle Revis. It’s as simple as that. Period.
