The Jets reportedly will consider trading cornerback Darrelle Revis. Darrelle Revis considers that a surprise.
“I’m speechless,” Revis said on Twitter, “but more importantly I feel more upset for the Jet nation for having to go through this!!!”
Don’t feel sorry for Jet nation, Darrelle. They’ve become battle hardened over the last year.
As we’ve explained, Revis holds all the cards. If the Jets want to trade him and if they in turn hope to get full value, the new team would want to have a long-term deal in place. If Darrelle chooses not to do that, it will be hard for the Jets to get what they want in trade.
Instead, Revis can focus on getting his knee healthy, becoming a free agent after the season, and agreeing to terms with the highest bidder next year.
