Jets ready to move Revis soon

It’s no longer a matter of if but when.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets will trade cornerback Darrelle Revis “in the coming days at the right price.”

Per Mehta, owner Woody Johnson has no intention of signing Revis to a long-term extension.  Thus, the options are to trade him or to see him walk away next year to a team like the Patriots, Giants, Dolphins, or Bills.

With the situation becoming a larger distraction on a daily basis, the sooner the move happens, the better.

It could happen as soon as today.  As we reported last night, there’s one “good” offer on the table.  That offer could go away if the team making it signs another cornerback once the market opens.

The Jets don’t know what Revis will want on a long-term deal, since there have been no talks at all regarding an extension.  Johnson, whether because he assumes the number will be high or because he doesn’t want to go through the headache of negotiating once again with the Revis camp, apparently doesn’t care.The task remains daunting for all involved.  From working out a new contract to working out a trade to worrying about Revis being happy with his contract when he gets back to 100 percent to worrying about whether Revis will even get back to 100 percent, there are a lot of moving parts.Once the other available corners start moving, the Revis gears could grind to a halt.

  1. I can’t believe he’s leaving ater they won the last three Super Bowls. Sad to see a dynasty breaking up.

  2. at first i didn’t want the eagles to trade for him.. but if it’ll only take a third, i wouldn’t mind. better than any third round pick that we’d take, and he’s still got 4 (maybe im being generous) years left.

  3. Revis should be on the Jest for life. Perfect fit! Hold out for more Revis. They’re screwing you. I’m not sure about what but I’m pretty sure they are. Definitely the best CB with an acl tear on the market.

  4. Has nobody learned from Jerry Jones, Daniel Snyder and most recentyly the Eagles. The dream team stuff fails.

  5. the options are to trade him or to see him walk away next year to a team like the Patriots, Giants, Dolphins, or Bills.

    ————————–

    Are the Patriots, Giants, Dolphins and Bills the front-runners for Revis’ services? Or are they just the teams that would depress the Jets fanbase the most if they were to secure him?

  6. “With the situation becoming a larger distraction on a daily basis, the sooner the move happens, the better.”

    The last thing the Jets would want is a possible distraction.

    I would not be surprised if the 49ers end up being the ones that make a deal with the Jets.

  7. If Revis does leave, I would love to see him on the Eagles. It’ll never happen though.

    Hope Revis can come back. And make the Jets look like total asses. Not like they need the help, but still…

  8. Revis was nasty, but now he won’t last see, a torn ACL can be detrimental, so let’s not let this break up be detrimental, wherever he goes we’ll see if he strives, hopefully his career doesn’t stumble and die.

  9. Revis has more value in September than he does now. Teams will have a better idea if he’s fully recovered.

    The problem is the Jets are anxious to start rebuilding this year and not in 2014.

  10. Revis was nasty, but now he won’t last see, a torn ACL can be detrimental, so let’s not let this break up be sentimental, wherever he goes we’ll see if he strives, hopefully his career doesn’t stumble and die.

  11. I know its a long shot, but things are quiet which gets the gears grinding….

    How nice would Revis look playing opposite Joe Haden? Immediate credibility on defense with an offense potentially poised to explode this year.

  12. Would bet the team with the “good” offer is the Niners. They have lot’s of picks and talent on the roster. He’d be the final piece to a great defense.

  13. Please don’t be the eagles. Unless they get him for a sixth or seventh round pick not worth the constant contract demands.

  14. Word has it, its the Eagles.

    A 2nd rounder (35th pick) and WR Macklin was the rumor about a week ago.

  15. Why would the Jets trade their best defender at 27 years old? I just don’t get it. Oh well, good for the Patriots I guess that they won’t have to deal with their best WR being stuck to like glue twice a year.

  16. What is his cap number this year? I can’t see teams making a big trade offer for high dollar guy coming off knee surgery. Too many unknowns.

    And I honestly have to think that the Jets want something other than draft picks in return since they can’t draft for ish.

  17. How I wish that was the plan for Sanchez, but the Jets would much rather move their best player, it only makes sense with the Jets way of thinking.

  18. There is no offer, this is the jets trying to drum up one. notice one thing keeps getting mentioned: letting him walk to the Patriots, Dolphins, Bills or Giants. the jets ownership are so afraid of the shadow of other teams in their division or team they share a stadium and city with that they show their cowardice at every move. who says he will walk to any of these four teams? and when have any of these four teams been intrested in overpaying DBs.

    Come on! whos ready to deal? Who wants the most talented IR roster in the league?

  19. The team with the “good offer” is taking a huge gamble. Even if he loses less than half a step to this injury, it’ll be too much for his position. Even then you most likely won’t know till 6-8 games into the season. Then you gotta give him a new deal before you know how good he’ll be.

  20. I have a funny feeling it’s the Eagles. Given how awful their secondary is and the fact that they have a ton of cap space (about $44M if they cut Nnamdi), it makes sense.

  21. With Revis going down last year the Jets still managed to be the 2nd best pass defense in the NFL behind the Steelers. The Jets are doing the right thing by trading him. You don’t pay that type of money to player that does not affect the outcome of the game. With a great pass rush you could have a average secondary. Just look at the Giants…2011 when the defensive line was taking down QB’s their secondary was fine…last year the D line didn’t play well and all of a sudden Giant fans was screaming the secondary sucks!! But it was the very same secondary that won the Super Bowl just one year before. Jets spend your money on players closest to the ball, not on some CB diva.

  22. Some people just love to prove how stupid they are. Revis for a third? How retarded?

    The Jets could keep him and let him play out his contract. The comp pick would be a third in a stronger draft. It would also be about 3 Million less on the Jets cap if they kept him.

    Revis isn’t going for less than two #2’s, but more likely a two this year and a conditional pick that could be a #1 next year or a #1 this year and a second pick this year or next. Most likely the Jets will get a deal similar (slightly better) to what the Vikes got for Harvin.

  23. I think it is a joke that they care if revis goes to the giants. They aren’t in the same division yet alone same conference. I would think that the giants could care less if a free agent went to the jets. They play eachother every four years. Jets are pathetic.

  24. Jets just cut Pouha, which saves them 3.8 mil on the cap. If the Revis deal goes down, that’s another 9 mil off the Jets number.

    Just ballpark, but I think that would put the Jets about 21-22 mil under the cap.

    Idzik gets this Revis deal done, and it looks like a good bit of the prior GM’s mess will be cleaned up.

    Jets have a good draft, (they’re looking at QB Nissib in the 2nd rnd) jettison Sanchez/Holmes next off season, Fireman Ed could be back in the building.

  25. For all those talking smack on Revis, he’s less of a douche than Sherman, thats for certain. Not to mention better

  26. The Jets will take an immediate $12M cap hit when Revis is traded. They’ll lose a net of $3M on the 2013 cap but that’ll close the books on him, no cap hit in 2014.

  27. What is wrong with this site? Racist dribble is acceptable: “Revis island would be a great show, just drop 100 black kids on an island and revis has to figure out which are cromarties.” Shame on PFT and NBC.
