Money talks. At least Jets fans know it does to Patriots cornerback and recently crowned Super Bowl champion Darrelle Revis, who was originally drafted by the Jets in 2007 and subsequently traded in 2013 when the two sides couldn't agree on a long-term contract extension after Revis' torn ACL.

The Jets have plenty of green available this offseason, as they are projected to have almost $50 million in cap space thanks to John Idzik's frugality, a few expiring contracts and an expected increase in the salary cap. Revis, while not technically a free agent, has a $20 million option to return to New England that may end up being declined depending on the Patriots' cap situation.

Another former Jet, unrestricted free agent cornerback Antonio Cromartie, has already gone on record about his willingness to return to New York and reunite with Todd Bowles, who coordinated the Cardinals defense last season before becoming Jets head coach in January.

With copious cap space and a desperate need for multiple starting-caliber cornerbacks, is a reunion between the Jets and their two former lockdown stars realistic?
