Darrelle Revis trying to convince Antonio Cromartie to return

Shortly after signing his five-year, $70 million contract, Darrelle Revis told reporters Wednesday night he was planning to call his old sidekick, Antonio Cromartie. It was to be a recruiting call.

"I'm going to get in contact with him very soon and try to convince him to come back and join our Batman and Robin tandem that we had a couple of years ago," Revis said.

The two cornerbacks played together from 2010 to 2012 with the New York Jets. Now Cromartie is a free agent, negotiating with the Jets. He's also drawing interest from his previous team, the Arizona Cardinals, and the Dallas Cowboys. But Cromartie hasn't been shy about expressing his desire to return to New York.

The Jets also having discussions with free-agent safety Marcus Gilchrist, who spent Wednesday meeting with team officials. The Jets' hope is to sign another safety and cornerback, adding them to Revis and corner Buster Skrine in a revamped secondary.
