"It was kind of funny," safety James Ihedigbo said. "A bunchof guys started the Rudy clap, that nice slow clap, as he came out.We welcomed him with open arms." Revis agreed to a four-year deal late Sunday night and took anearly morning flight Monday from his home in South Florida. Hearrived at the Jets' training facility after 1 p.m., and rejoinedhis teammates. "This has been a long saga," owner Woody Johnson said. Revis didn't practice, but was there in time to address the teamand break down the practice huddle, with NFL Films camerascapturing the moment for HBO's "Hard Knocks" series. Some Jetsplayers shouted, "Revis Christ!" at him, while others poked funat Revis' bushy beard. "It was just good to see him," defensive tackle Kris Jenkinssaid.
