Likely Revis trade timing? The week before the draft

Indeed, the Jets are shopping cornerback Darrelle Revis.  Which means that owner Woody Johnson has decided not to pay him.

Which means that, if the deal is right, Revis will be traded.

So when will it happen?  The current thinking is that a deal would go down, if at all, within a week or so before the draft.  This would give teams a chance to exhaust opportunities in free agency before deciding to make a play for Revis.  It also would give Revis a chance to show that he can run again, seven months removed from his torn ACL.

Trading Revis also would ensure that the Jets won’t have to see him march out the door next March and sign with a rival team.  Gary Myers of the New York Daily News recently mentioned the Patriots as a possibility.  A source with knowledge of the situation believes that the Jets also would be concerned about Revis signing with the Giants, Dolphins, or Bills.

Either way, the realistic options for the Jets and Revis is trade him or sign him to a new deal.

Revis staying for 2013 is the least likely option, since he then would be able to leave unfettered by the franchise tag.

  1. I hope he comes to the Niners for a couple reasons. Our cornerbacks are pretty bad, he could really be an upgrade. Also, I want him here because him and Sherman in the same division would be sweet! Of course, it’ll get old after a few times but it’s still pretty entertaining.

  2. If Johnny manziel is entering next years Draft and the Jets obviously still need a QB wouldn’t it make sense to trade revis for Draft Picks in Next years Draft ?

  3. He is a CB, not a QB. Why worry about where you trade him to?? Dump him to whoever gives you the best deal.
    He isn’t a playmaker. He isn’t going to beat you. He is just a greedy diva. Sherman is better than him.

    I for one am glad that Woody finally grew a pair. He should have made life miserable for MEvis the first time he threatened a holdout while in the middle of a contract

  4. It’s too bad we can’t trade Woody Johnson for a different owner….He’s stupid and cheap and he sucks…

  5. Why not sign him long term themselves? Hard to believe they get rid of such an impact player. Just structure contract and other contracts to make it happen. Where is the respect?

  6. There is no way Mevis ends up in New England. The Patriots will not tie up 15 mill on a CB and pay him more than TB.

    I find it funny how many teams make decisions worrying about what New England may or may not do.

    Apparently, Richard Sherman is now leaving PFT comments.

  8. LOL, jets so paranoid about Belichick sticking it to them…that all trades will/would carry a clause of no trading Revis to NE.

    Hope the jets enjoy their 2nd or 3rd rounder to a team assuming a big number…and coming off injury.

    Hope the jets also enjoy their cap hit from ‘ dead Revis money’.

    ????????? Ok I give up, which team will draft Manziel so the Jets know which team to trade him to?

  10. If we don’t have the intention of signing him next year, then absolutely trade him. I’m a big Revis fan, but I have to set that aside and come to terms with that NO CB, NONE, is worth the kind of money he will be seeking. Corners are 90% of the time not going to actually win you a game, unlike a QB, RB, WR. Hope we can get a good return for him

  11. The trade talk makes no sense. Based on his injury – you’re looking at a conditional 3rd at best – why would the Jets do that? Rework the mans deal

    ==========================
    be careful what you wish for…..jerrah jones is still breathing ya know.

  13. He’s coming off ACL surgery and threatens to hold out every year unless he gets more money. What team wants to take him on?

  14. If you look at Revis’s interceptions most are gifts. Lots of under and over thrown passes or tipped balls. Give me a break. Not worth more than a 3rd rounder. Then good luck with his demands.

  15. Why should the Jets be worried about where he might go? If he is a good player, you keep him on your own team and don’t let him leave. If they think he can’t play anymore after the knee injury, then they think they can beat him where ever he signs. If he is still a stud, the Jets would have to be dopes to let him leave, even if he is a pain to deal with.

  16. What’s the rush? Coming off an ACL and probably not being ready until Sept, a team would have to take a huge leap of faith to trade for him. His value is lowest now. Get him on the field this season, let him show he’s still the same player and trade him during the season. If they can’t, he’s only making 6 mil and they’ll get a compensetory pick for him anyway when he walks. Big deal if a corner goes to a division rival, even one as good as Revis.

  17. if i was a GM, i wouldnt put my team in cap hell just to keep him for a year, there is really no such thing as a shut down corner, if the WR is good enough, he will exploit any CB, this guy just had good instinct, and back then they had a good front 7 that got constant pressure on the opposing QB, which resulted in turnovers!! but 14 mill a year for a CB is ludacris!!!

  18. Not sure which is worse…

    Revis being traded then making a winning playoff game interception against us in the future

    OR

    Tim Tebow being traded or cut & making a winning touchdown pass in a playoff game against us in the future.

    Pick your poison

    Jets are gonna have that pick anyway.

  21. Lol at everyone thinking the Pats will make a move on Revis.

    You guys do remember Asante Samuel right? Granted he was amazing for the Pats during his time, but Kraft, BB and the men don’t spend top dollar on secondary.

    Id be worried about the Fins out of all these so called threats. They wanna spend and upgrade.

  22. If there are any niner brass out there needing advise on D.R. I present the following:
    Strike one : No Revis in team.
    Strike two : Damaged goods with the knee injury and could be writhing on the ground the first game.
    Strike three : The 49ers need the high draft picks to keep a steady supply of youthful talent in the pipeline and giving up a basket of high picks seems to be what everyone is expecting.=Too much.
    Strike four. Salary cap.
    Strike five : All the other players don’t want an outside newbe gettin in on their scratch. This,in all likelihood ,will lead to locker roo0m discontent.

  23. I love how everyone think Revis is going to leave New York. First of Revis knows he will make more money with endorsements in NY then anywhere else. Also Nike and all the companies he is signed with know will want him to stay in NY. Also the Jets putting out the word that they were going to trade him was just to see what they would get in return just in case when they ser him in practice first hand before any team sees him in a game and if he isn’t the Revis of old they will pounce on that trade before the other team sees he is damaged goods. Everyone thinks they want to trade him for draft picks this year. The Jets don’t really care about this year cause next year they can dump Sanchez then use the picks on the better QB class next year. Know if Revis is playing like the Revis of old then he will get his contract and will retire a Jet. The new GM ain’t stupid cause in NY the fans choose who we want. If he traded Revis he would be a wanted man in NY. Probably wouldn’t be able to walk out of his house without getting thrown something at his head. Revis wants the money and the only why to get that is to stay in the NY market

  24. Boner is one of the worst owners in sports and the jets better get a very good return, i.e. two first round picks, if they move him. As a season ticket holder its getting harder and harder to pay the prices Boner demands for the product Boner provides….

  25. I wouldn’t take him if you gave him to me. He’s coming off injury, getting older, and not worth the money. And at best, he can cover one receiver out of three. He can’t even make other teams ‘double team’ him, like a great receiver can.

  26. Its funny how folks talk about Revis not getting paid, when Bowe gets 16 mil for the upcoming season, Wallace is said to be getting just as big of a contract, and those 2 guys did very little last season.

    Shoot, they’re talking 7-8 million for Jared Cook at TE.

    Yet nobody, especially the team on the cusp of a SB, with all the draft picks and can’t stop anybody throwing the football on their secondary, isn’t going to make a play for him?

    Well seeing as how both of your scenarios involve actually getting to the playoffs I wouldnt be surprised to see Revis traded and Tebow cut. Although I’m a fan of your young d-line, that linebacking corp needs some serious help. I love Rex Ryan defenses but even hes not immune to aging players with middling production.

  28. An acl is a 2 year injury even after a good rehab….Revis wont be himself…IF EVER…until 2014…so why would a team give the Jets any high picks …THEN have to pay Revis a huge contract?

    3 words….William…..Clay …..Ford…..

  30. manziel is a midget, he’ll get killed in the NFL. i douby any team is drooling over another Flutie.

  31. I don’t think any Jet fan is worried about where Tebow goes. he will never throw another TD in the NFL. Montreal Alouettes, maybe.

  32. Stockpile picks for next year so you can package to move up to the top to nab the QB you want. ( jets might not have to move up far)

  33. not sure why the 49ers would wanna break the bank on “A” guy …

    Go get Justin Smith/Issac Spogoahgaohlos/Frank Gore/Randy Moss/Ahmad Brooks/Dashon Goldson ‘s replacements with those early round picks – continue contending for the next decade/half decade…

    Depth wins superbowls these days … 2010 Packers/2011 Giants/2012 Ravens … lots of players missed time – guys stepped up.

    Go for “a” player, then watch a couple guys go down without quality replacements …. you’re gonna miss the playoffs.

  34. I don’t think the giants have the money or patience to deal with Revis, problems tend to be sent packing on reese’s watch.

  35. Not sure I entirely agree with the comments that a CB cannot win games. No, he isnt going to put points on the board consistently, but keeping points off the board from your opposition is worth a lot. And as a Lions fan I can tell you that they can certainly lose games. Covering the best WR allows the defense to strategize more aggressively. Not judging whether or not Revis is worth the money, but a great corner changes your gameplan and can certainly go a long way towards a win.

  36. I can see Revis getting traded to the 49ers. They are missing that top notch cornerback. Rogers is getting old. They have 5 picks in the top 100 so they can pull that trade off. If they add a healthy Revis, the sanfran defense will be SCARY. More scary then it already is..

  37. Loving the way John Idzik has been moving since getting here. I’ll be way impressed if they actually do flip Tebow for a pick, that “other idiot GM” we had gave up two to get the guy.

  38. Dolphins won’t trade for him. That would be an upgrade, Ireland doesn’t know how to upgrade talent.

    Well don’t you have to make the playoffs for those things to happen ?

  40. Its High risk High reward….Not EVERYBODY who comes of ACL surgery is done…Look at Adrian Peterson…he had his knee DESTROYED, and look what he did on his return. Even if Revis comes back at only 85-90 percent, thats a damn good corner.
