NEW YORK Darrelle Revis is moving closer to returning to action. Whether that's with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
The three-time All-Pro cornerback addressed being the subject of trade rumors in an interview with Seattle fullback Michael Robinson for "The Real Robinson Report," posted on YouTube on Monday night.
Revis said the trade rumors "definitely hit home." He also was asked specifically about the possibility of being traded to the 49ers, one team rumored to be interested.
"I would just be an addition to help them win that trophy," Revis said. "Would it be awesome? Yeah. My main goal as a player, and I think of all of us players in the NFL, is to hold that Lombardi Trophy up in the air and wear that ring."
Doctors said Revis' rehabilitation from a torn left ACL is ahead of schedule, Jets general manager John Idzik said during a conference call with season-ticket holders. But Idzik wouldn't address Revis' murky contract situation.
Revis is entering the final year of his contract and wants to be among the league's highest-paid players. If the Jets believe they won't be able to re-sign him next offseason, they will be more apt to try to get something presumably high draft picks for him in a trade.
Raiders Offensive lineman Mike Brisiel has restructured his contract to give Oakland salary cap relief.
Brisiel converted $3 million of his $4.35 million base salary into a guaranteed roster bonus paid next week, agent Jeff Sperbeck said.
Meanwhile, the Raiders didn't use the franchise tag on any of their 17 prospective unrestricted free agents.
The decision doesn't mean the Raiders aren't interested in bringing back some or all of those players.
They have until March 12 to reach deals with key players such as linebacker Philip Wheeler, tight end Brandon Myers and defensive lineman Desmond Bryant before other teams are allowed to make offers.
Ravens Given the going rate for successful quarterbacks, Joe Flacco knows his status as the highest-paid player in NFL history may not last long, and he's OK with that.
The Super Bowl MVP signed his new contract worth $120.6 million over six years. He will receive a $29 million signing bonus, $52 million in guaranteed money and $51 million over the first two years of the deal.
"I know that this isn't going to hold up for that long, but that's not a priority of mine to be the highest-paid guy," Flacco said. "The priority of mine was to get that respect that I felt, that I feel now from this organization."
Cowboys Linebacker Anthony Spencer, Dallas' sack leader last season with 11, received the franchise tag, designated at $9.6 million, for the second straight season.
Chiefs Kansas City agreed to a five-year contract with wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
