Revis trade likely won’t happen with Bucs on the clock



We’ve been advocating for a week or so the wisdom of accomplishing a trade

that would send cornerback Darrelle Revis from the Jets to the Buccaneers

when the Bucs are on the clock at No. 13.

There’s only one problem with that plan, as multiple league sources

have pointed out (while kindly avoiding terms like “stupid” and “idiot”

and “dummy” . . . at least to our faces).  Revis would have to pass a

physical before the trade can become official, and that would have to

happen before the Jets pick a player that, if the deal doesn’t go

through, would revert to the Bucs.

That’s why the trade would have to happen long enough before the

draft to allow the physical to be passed before Thursday night, April


There’s another potential approach that would require a leap of faith

by both sides — and reliable phone lines.  The parameters could be

negotiated and the physical could be taken and the trade could be kept

under wraps until the Bucs are on the clock.  This would ensure that the

Jets would avoid being leapfrogged by a team sitting lower in round one

that guesses right regarding the player the Jets plan to pick.

But the deal wouldn’t go down until the two teams call it in to the

league office during Tampa’s 10-minute pick window.  And it wouldn’t be

binding on either team.  Tampa could choose to use the pick if a player

the Bucs covet slips past the first 12 picks, or the Jets could simply

get cold feet.

Quick thoughts on the Jets' signing of former Jaguars S Dawan Landry:

1. IDEAL MARRIAGE: This deal made too much sense
for it not to happen. Landry needed a job after getting cut last month,
and the Jets needed a veteran safety, desperately. Landry played for Rex
Ryan and Dennis Thurman with the Ravens, which means he already knows
their defensive system. That's important because their scheme is
difficult to master, especially for safeties. This should help
tremendously with the transition.

2. LITTLE BROTHER IS WATCHING: The Jets kept it all
in the family, as Dawan will replace his younger brother, LaRon, who
made the Pro Bowl in his only season with the Jets. Let's be clear:
Dawan isn't as good as his brother, not as dynamic or intimidating in
the secondary, but he's a dependable and durable player who won't kill
the defense with mental mistakes.

3. FILLS A GAPING HOLE: Let's face it, the Jets' safety situation might

have been the worst in the league. After losing LaRon (Colts) and

Yeremiah Bell (Cards) in free agency, and releasing Eric Smith,

they were down to Antonio Allen and Josh Bush,
neither of whom is ready to step into a full-time role. There's still a
good chance they will pick a safety on the second day of the draft, a
player whom they believe can be a Day 1 starter.

4. LIMITED IN PASS COVERAGE: Dawan is a "box"
safety, meaning he's better around the line of scrimmage than in pass
coverage. In overall play, he was rated 69th among 88 safeties last
season, according to ProFootballFocus.com. (Interestingly, LaRon was
only 65th on the list.) Dawan allowed a 107.4 passer rating and three
touchdown passes, per PFF. He's not a productive blitzer and, although
his strength is playing the run, he was charged with 10 missed tackles.
Obviously, there's a reason he lasted so long on the open market. His
best days might be behind him, but he's a good fit for the Jets,
considering the need and his familiarity with the playbook.

     Kiper Answers Some Jets-Centric Draft Questions    



If the NFL gets around to bestowing a special name on the

celebration at this point in its calendar, one suggestion is to call it

Kiperfest. Mel Kiper and his hair are everywhere these days, on

ESPN.com, on ESPN’s multitude of channels, on commercials.

This afternoon the Melatollah of the Value Board held another

conference call with interested reporters and the Jets came up several

times in relation to questions about certain players and where they

might go in the upcoming draft. As a Radar public service, here are the

questions and Mel’s responses:

Q. How long do you think it will take Barkevious Mingo to develop into an every-down player if he’s in a 4 3 defense?

Kiper: I look at him as a developmental defensive end. He has

to get a little stronger to play that position, get a little bulk to his

frame. I look at him as a 3-4 outside linebacker, an attacker off the

edge. I think he’d be a factor right away at that spot. The majority of

outside linebackers in that situation are.

I would say Mingo immediately as a 3-4 outside linebacker would be a

major league factor. He gets from Point A to Point B lightning-quick. I

would like to see him be more productive this year. If he would have

been, maybe he would have been the top-three pick. If the Jets can get

him at No. 9, that’s a real nice value pick.

Q. Tavon Austin to Percy Harvin seems to be a natural comparison.

How well does Austin stack up to Harvin when you compare them, and is

Austin a reach for a team such as the Jets at No. 9?

Kiper: He’s 5’8½”. You think about where he can be in the NFL —

he’s got great potential to be an electrifying performer the way

today’s NFL is.

Durability is the problem with Percy Harvin. Let’s hope, he’s never

had an issue. Tavon Austin, you can put him in the backfield, in the

slot, in the return game. Gives you a lot of versatility. With the ball

in his hands, he’s electric. Very tough to corral.

So is it too early You could debate that at 5’8½”. Is it too early at

16? No. If you’re getting a great player at 16, can you make a great

player at nine? Sure, you can. It’s a case where, hey, I always believe

that you had to take a guy where he was slotted. Now if the guy can

play, he can play. If he can play at 16, he can play at nine.

The Jets have a ton of needs. They need a playmaker. If they wanted

to take a versatile kid like Austin who is going to change that

scoreboard, I don’t think anybody would have a big issue with it. They

may say it’s a slight reach, but so be it. Slight reaches sometimes turn

out to be great players.

Q. Concerning Jarvis Jones, his stock has fluctuated quite a bit. Where do you feel would be the best fit for him?

Kiper: He was productive. He just didn’t run well. Some don’t.

Look at Terrell Suggs. I think he goes in that top-15-to-17. I think he

could go to New Orleans after 15, Pittsburgh at 17, maybe even as early

as the Jets at nine. But if I had a say right now, it would be New

Orleans at 15 or Pittsburgh at 17.
