The Jets have an offer on the table from the Buccaneers for cornerback Darrelle Revis. The deal includes potential terms of compensation for Revis.
The Jets apparently aren’t impressed. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Jets have still not communicated any potential offers to the Revis camp.
The Jets declined comment, reiterating their overall position regarding Revis.
If the Jets drag their feet, the Bucs could turn to Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes, or to another option at corner.
It could be that the Jets know Revis won’t be impressed by the offer. Though the Jets and Revis haven’t negotiated, it’s generally accepted that he’s looking for a deal in the range of $15 million to $16 million per year.
At some point, the Jets may have to decide whether they’re willing to trade Revis without an extension. If no one will give Revis what he wants, it could be the only way to remove what is becoming an increasingly significant distraction.
