The All Revis Trade Discussion Threads are the Same Discussion Thread - MERGED NUMEROUS TIMES

Recommended Posts

The New York Jets, fresh off an exhaustive hunt for new general manager John Idzik, will explore options to deal star corner Darrelle Revis this offseason, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, is set to earn $6 million in 2013 (between salary and bonuses), and owner Woody Johnson has strong reservations about the ability to extend Revis's deal, the sources said. Johnson has expressed his desire to attempt to land value for Revis now, rather than risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent a year from now, most likely seeking as much draft-pick compensation for him as possible.

The Jets are very much in transition mode, they have cap issues moving forward and are trying to embark on a rebuilding process after firing former long-time general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL, engaged in a long holdout in 2010 that resulted in a contract extension that was more of a Band-Aid than anything else.

Revis signed a seven-year deal then that voids to a four-year pact, thus making him an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season. The deal also precludes him being hit with the franchise tag or any other such mechanism. Johnson has made it very clear he would like to pursue a means to reap rewards for Revis now, sources said, and it is likely to be an immediate part of Idzik's initial job duties.

Revis is considered by many to be the best defensive player in the game. And with pass rusher Mario Williams earning $60 million guaranteed from Buffalo a year ago, Johnson understands how financially restrictive it would be to retain Revis. His team desperately needs young, cheap, impact players to help reposition the team for the future, with 2013 a year of transition.

Revis is the only real trading chip that he has. Knee injury or not, there would be no shortage of teams interested in securing his services and no shortage of rebuilding teams sitting on massive cap space in 2013. The Jets are also likely to be hard-pressed to retain free agents like tight end Dustin Keller, running back Shonn Greene and defensive tackle Mike DeVito, though they will make a push to retain DeVito, sources said.

Getting Revis signed to an extension would be a possibility to remedy this situation, but the sources said Johnson has established his desire to move the star corner if he can secure fair value in exchange.

Dealing Revis would incur a $9 million cap hit due to some option-bonus prorations involved in the contract -- thus Revis would count an additional $3 million against the cap than he is currently scheduled to -- but the Jets could navigate that relatively easily according to sources familiar with their cap situation, via a restructuring or by releasing a veteran. The team is using 2013 as a year for cap and budgetary housecleaning to get situated for the future. It stands to reason that come 2014, both Revis and head coach Rex Ryan, are gone.

This is the right thing to do but Woody is the one making these decisions?

Hopefully he's just providing input that he doubts they'll be able to sign Revis to a reasonable extension (given his experience last time around). Otherwise he needs to take his hands off the matter.

Sure glad we brought in the new GM who's gonna make all personnel decisions.

I'm not against trading Revis.

But if this is a true, and our schmuck of an owner is calling the shots on how to rebuild, this franchise is so ****ed.

Pretty much.

I wonder what he could bring back.

As far as the owner being involved. The Rooneys, Jerry Jones, the Maras got involved just as much as Dan Snyder did when he was ruining the Redskins. Team needs a QB way more than it needs new owners.

It's probably the smart long-term move, particularly if Idzik knows that 2013 is a lost season. Tannenbaum wouldn't do this--he'd instead restructure five other contracts to squeeze Darrelle in, then repeat the process in two years when the cap was botched up when all those restructurings came due.

I've been saying this for awhile -- Woody is the new Jerry Jones, minus the stadium. We shouldn't kid ourselves, he is the only one really pulling the strings. YeeeeHaaaaw! Woddy wants him some Glory Hole!

Agreed.

As I said, I'm not against trading Revis, and if Idzik is behind it and executes on it, I'll have a newly-gained respect for him.

But if it's Woody, while this one might be the right move, it'll be accompanied by 9 or 10 wrong ones.

Oh ok so you want to trade for the best CB in the NFL without giving up anything.

no id only want revis traded for picks.. nicks and a 1st would be dumb..

revis while great is coming off acl tear, will want a big contract, could constantly try and hold out and he may never regain form

if they had to give up nicks it would be dumb. Eli with cruz and nicks will have better chances to win superbowls(which they have)

than eli cruz and revis would have at superbowl chances
