Darrelle Revis is a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s next induction class.
The former Jets cornerback is one of five first-year eligible nominees and 28 Modern-Era Players who are semifinalists for enshrinement. Defensive lineman Dwight Freeney, linebacker James Harrison and offensive linemen Joe Thomas and Jahri Evans are the others in their first year of eligibility.
Revis, the No. 14 pick in the 2007 draft, was a seven-time Pro Bowler and First-Team All-Pro four times. He spent eight seasons with the Jets and had 25 interceptions and 112 passes defensed wearing the green and white.
The Jets have a chance to have two players inducted into the Hall of Fame. Joe Klecko is a finalist in the senior category.
The 28 Modern-Era semifinalists will be reduced to 15 finalists before the final voting process in January and will increase to 19 with the four previous announced finalists. Klecko, Chuck Howley and Ken Riley are finalists in the senior category and Don Coryell for the coaching category.
The Class of 2023 will be announced the week of the Super Bowl during the prime-time awards show NFL honors.
Revis will be inducted in the Jets’ Ring of Honor at halftime of Sunday’s game against Chicago.
