If only Darrelle Revis would have done this a few years ago when he was with the Jets.

According to, Revis is now the trademark holder of the phrase "Revis Island," created for the cornerback for his ability to shut down opposing receivers without any receiver help — leaving him on a proverbial island.

After the Jets drafted Revis in 2007, he became one of the game's best cornerbacks. He was also a focal point on defense for the early teams Rex Ryan coached.

However, since being traded to Tampa Bay, he hasn't been used as a shutdown corner. He'll occasionally be used in man coverage, but has often played zone.

It's evident he's not on "Revis Island" right now.

Revis received approval for the patent on Sept. 24.
