Revis a finalist for top NFL player ESPY

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is the league's top coverage man in my book.

What about the best player at any position?

ESPN puts Revis in the mix, naming him one of five ESPY Award finalists for best NFL player.

Also nominated (in alphabetical order) were New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, who won The Associated Press' Defensive Player of the Year Award last season.

Fans will decide the winner for this honor and most of the other ESPYS with an online ballot at ESPN.com. The ceremony takes place July 14.
