I agree with this. It's not like anyone is excited about trading him away or thinks it's an ideal situation, but under the circumstance it's something that has to be taken under serious consideration. That's only compounded by the fact that Revis could very easily come to the decision that he would rather hit the FA market next offseason, leaving the Jets in the likely circumstance of losing him for nothing after just one more season. The Jets have no means of being able to retain him unless he decides he wants to stay and it's very likely he'll be wanting to maximize his potential earnings, which means not only not signing a contract after coming off of an injured year, but letting there be a FA bidding war for his services.
I think there's a very good chance the Jets have him one year tops anyway, unless they're willing to outbid every team in the league for him as an UFA next year.
Revis is one of the very best players in the league. It's so rare for the Jets to have one of those guys, and it would be such a shame to lose him. Woody Johnson, no doubt, loves his star power, too.
If the front office is status quo, I think they come to him looking to extend him this winter. If they can't get something done relatively quickly, then I think they put him on the trade market before the draft. If they blow up the front office, they may not even bother trying to negotiate with him.
Crappy situation. As expensive as Revis is/will be, the Jets will never get fair value back in a trade. Complicating things is the fact that (if I'm reading Jason's page correctly) trading Revis will cost the Jets an additional $3M against the cap in 2013.
