NFL FanHouse's Dan Graziano's sources have confirmed that the Jets are close to signing CB Darrelle Revis.

Rich Cimini for ESPN New York.

Although Tim Cowlishaw has hinted that it's up to the player to decide when to show up, The Daily News's Tim Smith writes that it's up to the team to decide when to show the money.

Former Jets QB Boomer Esiason believes Gang Green can still win without Revis.

Redskins QB Donovan McNabb won't play on Friday.  On a side note, remember the last time we played a preseason game against the Redskins?  Our starting QB Chad Pennington didn't play either.  And rookie RB Leon Washington had a pretty good game in Washington.  And if I remember correctly, we also had some good option plays out of WR Brad Smith.

Our current starting QB Mark Sanchez will wear a knee brace from now on.

WR Laveranues Coles may not see much playing time on Friday, but hopes to showcase why he is The Sizzle Man at game four.
