When finishing up a post about the possibility of the 49ers trading for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday, we mentioned that there was likely to be a good deal more on the topic in the days, weeks and months to come.
It didn’t take a crystal ball or deck of tarot cards for that prediction, just the knowledge of what life is like at this time of the year. One report has the team ready to make the move while another says that nothing much is happening. It certainly seems that we’ll be following that blueprint this time around.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the 49ers are “not inclined to pursue” a trade for Revis “at this time.” That contradicts Wednesday’s report that the team was “poised” to make a run at trading for Revis, but words like inclined and at this time hardly rule them out of things.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There will be more from Revis, the Jets, the 49ers and plenty of other teams before this gets settled and it’s sure to keep us plenty busy in these parts.
