Jets acknowledge they discussed trading Darrelle Revis

Florio discussed the chances of the Jets trading Darrelle Revis earlier Tuesday, calling it a “remote possibility” that the Jets could at least consider.

G.M. Mike Tannenbaum confirmed the team did just that.

“We’ve discussed that and we don’t have any interest in trading the player,” Tannenbaum said on ESPN 1050 Tuesday, during one the 43 media availabilities by the Jets front office over the last two days.

It’s interesting the subject was broached, but a trade isn’t going to happen.  Someone just forgot to prep owner Woody Johnson properly for this talking point.

“We haven’t made that decision, but I doubt it,” Johnson said in his earlier segment on the same radio station.

The Jets need to get their stories straight if they are going play a transparent game of “hardball” with Revis, saying they are ready to move on without him.

In one interview Monday, Johnson said he didn’t expect Revis back for Week One.  In another interview with E:60, Johnson said he didn’t expect Revis back this season at all.

This whole game is more than a little silly, but it’s going to dominate headlines in New York at a time both NFL teams are trying to sell tickets like never before.  There’s no such thing as bad press, and Johnson is tired of being ignored.

  1. The Fins will trade you Marques Douglas and a 5th round pick so that Revis can back up Vontae and Sean.

  2. trade his ass.
    he’s a ||||||||||||||||||||||) member of the team.
    If his stones are that big and he needs to go.. gone he is.
    How about $10 million over two years with a ten million $ signing bonus?
    The #’s will cause the impasse, not reality.

  3. As a Pats fan, I love to see that the old Jets management is back finding ways to ruin the team’s chances of a division title… Randy will be excited to be able to run down the field without 24 covering him for the season.

  4. and yes the games continue. Next reports:
    Revis’ agent sticks his tongue out at Tannenbaum.
    Revis spotted wearing a Raider’s cap.
    Rex Ryan says Cromartie is the best CB in the NFL.

  5. No way they’d ever get equal value for a player that’s unwilling to report unless he’d paid $16m/year.
    He’s under contract. If he doesn’t want to play under it, let him sit for 4 more years. He has no leverage.

  6. He is under contract, regardless of what the team said about working a new deal he is still under contract.
    That is all that needs to be said.

  7. The Fins ………………………………………………….. BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!

  8. J-E-T-S = disengaged owner, inept gm, immature head coach, locker room full of divas.
    watching this team implode while the pats quietly and professionally take care of biz and win the afc east will be a joy this year.

  9. Once again, this time the GM why make such a statement to the press?
    Hard Knocks is going to show Tannenbaum giving Mevis the finger.

  10. He is probably worth:
    a top 10 1st round pick and a decent veteran CB to replace him this year and throw in a future 3rd somewhere.

  11. what the hell are they doing? doesn’t sound like that’s a question they know the answer to either. for a professionally run organization, the jets sure are making a lot of mistakes handling what should be business 101 stuff…on many levels…

    Dolphins fans are delusional. Plain and simple.

  13. I’d trade him, he’s under contract…
    You have to look at this from a business perspective sometimes. Look what happened to Elvis Dumervill after he signed. He makes good money, and sorry he’s not a QB, he’s a CB… the Jets have a great defensive-minded coach and can do without this dude, I know it sounds crazy..
    How many games has that ASoumbe, or whatever his name is, win for the Raiders, not many…
    How many games have guys like Dre Bley or other solid cornerbacks won?
    There are drafts every year. Sorry bro, you’re a Corner and you’re expendable. Should have learned to play left tackle or QB..

  14. Someone else has ticket selling issues? Coulda fooled me. I thought this was a Jaguar-centric deal only.

  15. TheJetsStream #Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum made it clear that Darrelle Revis isn’t going anywhere: “We’re not trading him.”
    ???

  16. Green As Grass
    Rex Ryan has already said that Cromartie is an elite CB.He must have been watching 2006-7 film.
    Scratch that off the list.
    College to Pros
    Pats trade Raiders 2011 1st round pick (top ten), Jonathan Wilhite or Terrance Wheatley( vet CB) and a 3rd for next year.
    Done deal? Ill let BB know.

    Why? With Douglas the Jets would finally have a decent DE on the roster.

  18. The Revis situation is like 24×7 viagra for this fool, Florio.
    Then you have every moron Pats fan and Phin fan flailing…

  19. Whether Revis is on the team or not the Miami Dolphins are going 5-11 this season. Reason being they don’t have the horses.

  20. If the Jets want Revis in camp, all Tannenbaum has to do is show Revis’ agent the tape of Ted Ginn burning him deep for a TD during the Mon Night game down here last September. Darrelle, you got smoked by Ted Ginn. You shouldn’t make 15 mil a year if you’re getting smoked by Ted Ginn.
    But by all means, drag this out. We all think both sides are handling this beautifully.

  21. Come on, he will sign. With a lockout looming next year, I hope he is not stupid enough to NOT play 2 years and NOT get a pay check for 2 years!

    Come join the TEAM OF THE FUTURE! play along side of the greatest Corner in NFL history!
    can u imagin ASO AND REVIS
    NO more revis land it will be aso and revis WORLD!

  24. This just in: Rex Ryan predicts an 7-9 season and announces to everyone he’s still a fat ass Andy Reid wannabe.

    Really, clown?
    Business 101?
    And you are inimately involved with everything the Jets and/or Revis’ agents are doing right?
    This is the first contract negotiation that included a holdout in the history of the NFL?
    Tell us what the Jets should be doing, smartguy?
    Why are fans so freaking stupid? Or is it really just ignorant hate?

  26. Agreed Brownsfn19……Christ, just sign the guy, trade him or whatever, sick of the updates every 15 minutes.

  27. let his ass sitout for the rest of his contract and see how much money he makes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. The Jets lost to my Jaguars last year with Revis playing… pffft…. and this team is going to the Super Bowl? Signing a bunch of high priced free agents tends to = fail. The whole thing rests on the play of Mark Sanchez anyway, not the defense. The defense is good enough without Revis to hold most teams to 20 points or less…. so again I reinterate that its on Sanchez and his army of drama queen receivers (and a quality TE) to bring the glory to the Jets.

  29. Hey Chiefs2010 get your info right, qb, lt, then cb are paid in that order, hate to tell you but good corners don’t come a dime a dozen like rb, when you get a lock down corner you best pay the man, the league has become wr friendly.

  30. CollegeToPros say,s………..
    HaHaHa what are you smoking He is not worth that much. How about a second round pick and that is it. All he does is play 10 yards off and make sure he does not get beat deep. He always has help underneath. Most CB’s can do this. But you are a funny one.

  31. And so ends another season for another overhyped Jets team before it even begins. How sad.
    In the meantime, watch us rise back to the top!

  32. Jets are overrated. For a franchise with such a poor history of trying to play catch up to the Dolphins, Patriots, Bills and Colts when they were in the east, they sure are arrogant.
    I guess that’s why though. Plus, they have what, 20 contracts up at the end of this season? That’s no way to build a team. IF they make the Super Bowl, they will be the definition of a one-hit wonder.
    Forget just Patriots, Dolphins & Bills fans, the entire AFC is loving this.

  33. Im a Dolphins fan – please excuse all my foolish comrads- too much time under water. Revis is not going anywhere. I cannot think of another player I would trade him for (be reasonable / no Manning,Brady,Peterson). Wait him out and write the contract – there is no other option.

  34. Not saying I believe this, but the thought crossed my mind today, what if this hold-out is all staged? If Ryan really believes Revis is the best defensive player, then he doesn’t need the TC practice? I wouldn’t be so surprised if Revis surfaced with the team a couple days before their first game, and all is forgiven…

  35. Revis is well on his way to being a peria. How could you want the guy on your team after this. He’s on a team that can get deep in the playoffs. He wants to get paid the same as the corner back at the raiders??? The raiders have no chance of a superbowl win in the next few years. The jets do. I guess the superbowl and the team are last on the list when it comes to money with this guy. If he would have voiced his desire for a new contract just once and then got his ass in camp he would have a better deal much sooner.

  36. If I were the Bucs I would offer
    2011 1st round pick (This would be unconditional, and likely to be a high pick)
    2012 1st round pick (If it is in the top 10 it becomes a 2nd round pick, a 3rd round pick and a 2013 second round pick)
    And I would try to throw in Clayton and/or Ward…not to try to add value to the deal but just to get rid of the salaries. But since the Jets don’t want to pay Revis they would say no.
    Jets get lots in return.
    I would re-arrange the years of the current contract, putting the 1 million year last and the $15 mil year this year (a bigger version of the Chris Johnson switch) then make him a Buc for life when the next CBA is finalized.
    Bucs can pair Revis and Aquib on the corners with Barber this year and Lewis next year in the nickel. If McCoy and Price can stop the run the Bucs defense would be incredible for years. Although if Sabby finds his way on the field teams could just throw at him all day. In fact I would probably rather have him sit in the Pirate ship and play with 10 guys.

  37. This is tastee, when Rexxy strokes those egos, is anyone surprised when they believe it?
    This sounds much like the Michael Haynes holdout in New England

  38. Hahahaha. The Rex Ryan proclaimed “best cornerback in the league” wants to get paid like it, and then the J-E-T-S don’t think he is good enough to warrant a “Revis Island” type deal.
    Initially I was convinced there was no way they wouldn’t give him the deal. But if they are talking about trading him, at best it’s negotiating tactics, and at worst this team is going down in flames this season. Either way it’s gonna be fun to watch!

    “FinsUp” – I know Ted Ginn has yet to quite have the production of a top 10 draft pick, but, please, should ANYbody get blamed for getting “smoked” by the one of the fasted players in the league? Ted Ginn just flat out has another gear. Check out the 2 punt returns for TDs against the Jets. NO SHAME in getting burned by that man. He is a freak when it comes to straight-line speed.

  40. Seriously dude? How much money does this guy stand to make? ONE MILLION DOLLARS? When compared to a top Corner in the league it may not seem like much but when compared to what the rest of world makes you have got to be kidding. Wake up, go to work like the rest of us. I think I might call my boss tomorrow and tell him I’m not working until I get a raise. I know I should be making a dollar more a year than what Charlie Engineer makes over at Engineers R US. As soon as that phone call is over I would be seeking another job. Get over yourself and be thankful for what you have ya bum.

  41. Steelers : bring Revis back to the 412, pair him with McFadden, get rid of William The Terrible Gay

  42. Revis has been in the nfl for three years. why any player should be the highest paid anything after three years of exp is beyond me. he may not even be as good after all these months he spend sitting on his over confident ass demanding more money from a team that had a busy offseason like the jets.

  43. all NY players and NY employees for that matter should try to get all the money they can — I dont blame him — because of the OUTRAGEOUS NY state and NY City taxes … Bloomberg is a fool —- NY tax-you-to-death-and-then-some structure is out of control …. 1/2 your salary goes to the damn government … when is enough enough

  44. Revis is a bog boy. He can come to work or sit at home.
    It’s his choice.
    Jets need to send a consistant message.

  45. @rayray. i didn’t call jets fans stupid, and no i’m not some self-proclaimed jets insider. i was referring to the many mixed messages that are continually sent out from their coach, gm and owner over the past year.
    i have no ‘ignorant hate’ for jets fans; there’s a jerk like you cheering for every team in the nfl, so wake up, you’re not that special.
    i don’t manage or run your team, so i don’t know what i would do if i ran the jets. but i would make one choice and stand by it consistently. you know, kind of like how you’re supposed to run a business.

    Seriously dude are you stupid?? I personally dont agree with him holding out but for you to try to compare a NFL player salary to the average person…get real. Its a billion dollar business. If you found out your co-worker was flipping burgers and making $5 an hour more than you and you cooked them just as well as him…wouldnt you ask for a raise too???

  48. What’s really funny is all these people who think that without Revis, the Jets don’t stand a chance.
    Look, you had NO IDEA who he was before last season. That’s because of REX RYAN’S defensive schemes. Guess what, they got Cromartie AND Kyle Wilson. Oh, and Kris Jenkins is back in the middle so they will be getting more pressure on the QB.
    Also… other teams hardly even threw to Revis’s man. You might say that was because of such “blanket” coverage. But I say a LOT of it had to do with the overall lack of talent at QB in the NFL. They hear the media hype Revis up all throughout the season last year, so come every Sunday… they don’t even bother to look over to his side of the field where their man may or may not be able to receive a pass.
    The Jets will be fine, with or without Revis. Revis playing basically just gives them more depth because then Wilson wouldn’t have to start.

  49. Looks like Gilligan may be stranded on his island for a while longer. Perfect example of self worth overestimation. Me-vis is a good player but any decent player plugged into that defense will be fine. He thought he had the leverage and ability to extort a gigantic sum of money from the Jets. This is going to be a cold hard reality check that his uncle never mentioned could happen. BRAVO Jets! Stay the course and gradually lower the amount offered until he takes it. Ignore him and start signing the other guys

    That’s what the Cowboys said while Emmitt Smith sat home and watched them go 0-3. Then they paid him and won the Super Bowl.
    You’re right- if a team doesn’t care about winning, then the players who can most help them win have no leverage.

    If you do that, you’ll get fired. You know why? Because there are a million people who can do what you do. You are expendable.
    There aren’t many people in the world who can do for the Jets what DR can. That means he has a little more leverage with his boss than you do with yours.
    And why do you begrudge the players the money they make? You sound like a man who works for a living. Why would you rather see some billionaire owner stuff his pockets with more cash instead of that money going to the players?

  53. @algoreisahack
    I believe he was Tomlin’s focus in his first draft but the Jets took him the pick before the Steelers, so they selected Timmons.
    Although Tomlin still remembers that, I don’t think there is any way possible it happens.

  56. Not under any circumstances he is going to get 15 mil per yr.
    Mevis Or Bevis is under contract for 3 more yrs!!!!!!
    Enough said, he either can watch the Jets or play for them, the choice is his!!!

    If we dont have the hores what does that say about your team. We sweep you last year and our team will be better this year with additions of Marshal, Damsby and Nolen.

  59. Stick to your guns, Jets! Revis has been in the league 3 years. Blows it up last year and all of a sudden he thinks he’s the shiz? Negative. He should play out the contract he wanted.
    And stay away from the Raiders! They don’t need “me” types.

  60. This is all a lie a move to make sure Revis does not get hurt in training camp….. Thats it they have to make it look real so that the other players on the team dont get mad that they have to participate in camp and he dont but if some how in some crazy way this is true then just remember whoever has a good year this year who is a rookie is gonna want peyton manning money !!

  61. how much does the second highest paid corner make? they’ve said they won’t bow to the pressure of the freakish contract davis gave asmoundi. if the next guy is making 10 mil, have they offered 12?
    could this guy really be dumb enough to sit out? he’s under contract for 3 years. he could sit out a full year and he would not be any closer to anything!
    i think “saying tanny offered a meeting with woody is a blatant lie” may be the crack that begins the conversation…

  62. Algoreisahack
    You’re right that getting burned by Ted Ginn isn’t a sin. But this guy is holding out for freaking $16 million a year. And he may be draining his teams season in the process. If you’re going to do that, then you better be freaking perfect.

  63. “Then you have every moron Pats fan and Phin fan flailing…”
    —————————————–
    That flailing you’re seeing is all of us rolling on the ground laughing our a$$e$ off at you silly jests fans squirming. All of you are saying how he’s so expendable, but I’ll bet every one of you will crap yourselves when he finally does sign for that $15.1 mil and $.50 cents.

    _________________________________
    First of all, unless you’re talking about Peria Jerry (and why would you be?), I believe you mean pariah. As to money being his main focus, it probably should be. Yes, as fans we want the players to be team players, but at the end of the day this is their career. If your employer’s top rival offered to double your salary, are you saying you’d turn down the offer? Let me be perfectly clear, I do not support Revis in this issue. It’s not outrageous, however, for any player to care quite a bit about the money. As for the Jets having a real shot at the SB…really? Sanchez might end up being a great QB one day, but he threw more picks than TDs last year. The replaced their top RB with a RB with a bigger name but less production over the last couple of years. They dumped their Faneca and are starting a rookie in his place. The addition of Holmes (after he serves his suspension) should be a plus, and Cromartie certainly doesn’t hurt their CB depth.
    With or without Revis, however, I don’t see how they can be the favorites to win their division…let alone their conference. Take a look at their great season. They got into the playoffs because the Colts sat their starters. The Bengals’ offense had already fallen apart by the time they played them. They played a great defensive game against the Chargers, and scored a very nice upset. Even then, however, they won by 3 points because Kaeding missed 3 field goals, two of which he should have made. So, even that win, while impressive, isn’t as impressive as it first seems. As for the Colts, they were competitive in the first half, but couldn’t keep up with them in the second half. How exactly do they have a real chance to win the SB this year? Any more than most other teams I mean.
    As for “the next few years”, what’s to say they keep their team together that long? Mangold is in the final year of his contract. Whose to say someone won’t step up and offer him a huge contract? If there’s no new cba by the time his contract is over, then there’s no franchise tag at the time, meaning Mangold is an unrestricted free agent. I’m not sure of the legalities of the issue, but if someone becomes an unrestricted free agent without a cba being in effect, would the team have the right to slap a franchise tag on him after he hits the open market?

  65. Smart move, make it known publicly that they are not willing to trade him. His options are nil.
    Let him sit around and hope to collect a huge contract like his uncle (who was a bust btw)
    They should now go into lockdown and not discuss him anymore. Woody, don’t forget to tell Jabba the Gut not to talk about wanting to make sweet sweet love to him anymore either.
    Let the already annoyed public really start to hate his greedy anus.

  66. Congratulations J-E-T-S fans, you can now claim your Offseason Champion t-shirts at your local Walmart.
    You’re welcome.

  67. “There’s no such thing as bad press, and Johnson is tired of being ignored.”
    This pretty much sums it up. This lowly franchise has been the JV in Newark and in the shadows of the Giants forever. Red headed step children. They are insecure and media whores. Anything to sell those PSL’s!
    Like a little kid they craze the attention… too bad it’s all a waste. After all, the jets are the jets.

    Team of the future? How far into the future, the Raiders are picking up players who cant even make the skins squad!

  70. This could just be posturing. It helps their talks with Revis cause it gives him and his agent the idea that the Jets are ready for life without Revis, and anybody who wants to trade for him will need to produce a pretty package to “entice” the Jets to get rid of him. It’s hard to picture a situation where he’s actually playing for the Jets this season at this point, I don’t think he’s just going to give up after he’s already given up a year towards free agency.

  71. For Jets fans, this sucks. But at the same time, it is good that an organization isn’t giving in to every demand of a player with 3 years left on his deal.
    I mean, what is he going to do? Sit out for the rest of his career if the Jets do not budge?

  72. Since when did Revis wake up one day and decide he is Rod Woodson? He has 1 phenomenol year under his belt, thats it! If he had the same production in another city not falling under the New York media market, he would just be another pro-bowl corner. Nate Clements signed with SF 49ers a few years ago for an obscene amount of money…..how did that turn out for him?

  73. habibfromnewdeli-
    “other teams hardly even threw to Revis’s man. You might say that was because of such “blanket” coverage. But I say a LOT of it had to do with the overall lack of talent at QB in the NFL.”
    If you honestly think that is why Revis is so good, then you should stick to Cricket, you confused little foreigner

  74. Maybe he sits out the year and signs with the Giants. He’ll get to practice right next to the new stadium where the Giants practice facility is.
    D. Revis, C. Webster, A. Ross/T. Thomas, K. Phillips, S. Rolle would make a nice secondary.
    Where the Jets really promoting hard Knocks in Times Square yesterday?
    Just when you think the attention starved Jets couldnt sink any lower.
    Win and AFC East title ya humps.

  75. Ranover…
    sure. whatever you say. the lions have 2 wins the last 32 games; just reminding you.

    What’s really funny is all these people who think that without Revis, the Jets don’t stand a chance.
    Look, you had NO IDEA who he was before last season. That’s because of REX RYAN’S defensive schemes. Guess what, they got Cromartie AND Kyle Wilson. Oh, and Kris Jenkins is back in the middle so they will be getting more pressure on the QB.
    Also… other teams hardly even threw to Revis’s man. You might say that was because of such “blanket” coverage. But I say a LOT of it had to do with the overall lack of talent at QB in the NFL. They hear the media hype Revis up all throughout the season last year, so come every Sunday… they don’t even bother to look over to his side of the field where their man may or may not be able to receive a pass.
    The Jets will be fine, with or without Revis. Revis playing basically just gives them more depth because then Wilson wouldn’t have to start.

    100% agreed. Great post, Habib!

    The Fins will trade you Marques Douglas and a 5th round pick so that Revis can back up Vontae and Sean.

    Vontae and Sean better be practicing their parallel parking skills, because I don’t want them denting my Bentley when I get Valet parking at the restaurant in a couple of years.

  78. Fast forward 10 years. A broke and homeless Revis is running around toothlessly yelling, “DARRELLE REVIS!” in everyone’s face while mumbling about waiting to hear about his latest offer to the Jets.

    I guess I am stoopid. Sorry, I should have qualified my sense of stupidity prior to making any rash comparisons. But here’s the issue. You call me stupid by comparing a billion dollar business to an engineer yet you make a comparison to a dude who flips burgers who, mind you, is making less money than his co-worker. Am I missing something? For one, he is right on par with the other corners on the team and two, he and Asomugha are not on the same team. And to answer your question. I would ask for a raise. As soon as I was turned down I would bring my ass right back to work. I can assure you most burger flippers need every dollar they can get. My comparison wasn’t geared to the economics aspect but to the real world, that acting in the manner Revis is, in Average Joe world, repercussions would ensue. Fulfill your responsibilities outlined in the contract YOU signed (Like Asomugha did) and get your payday when it’s deserved.

  80. There are so many people commenting on these boards that dont have a clue about football the writers included.
    For the people on here talking about Revis had one good season now he wants a new contract, go check the stats and film the guy has been doing it since he came into the league.
    The problem here is not the total dollars of the contract the problem is the guaranteed money the Jets are willing to dish out. Look at the top ten draft picks this year and the guaranteed money that’s what these guys are looking at, I bet if they offered him 40 million in guarantees he would be in camp, at least he has proven he can play in the league.

  81. DonTerrelli – well said! Not only would he have to endure Cleveland but throw in mangini and his $1760 fines for having your cell phone ring during class!

    Thank God for you. Protector of the righteousnous, political correctness and knower of allness.
    Get a life, sunshine. Football is just a game and this site is for wannabe pro’s to come and be entertained by the days news and slip in a few stupid comments every so often.

  84. the steelers would have def taken Revis @15…looking back now..it’s a tough pill to swallow for a team like Oakland drafting Russell in a round HEAVY with defensive studs (Willis/Revis/Beason).

  85. hey, trade his ass to the RAIDER NATION!! hope big al is in the discussion.. asmougha and revis would be one of the coldest tandems in nfl history… almost guarantees a afc championship appearance…everyones blaming big al for creating the market prices for a shutdown corner.. if you think about it its the smartest thing a owner can do… it makes a team think twice before putting a so-called shutdown corner on a pedestal and calling him a shut down corner… if you want to use that term better be ready to pay that price.. 16 mil a year… if not you get what the jets are going through ..a broken heart, a holdout, and/or touching pockets.and offended locker rooms…he did the same thing with dhb .. paid a below avg recvr big bread so the stars feel they should earn more than that and teams arent willing pay..thus a hold out… long live AL DAVIS…RAIDER NATION!!!!
