Indianapolis is a connected and accessible city, with nearly every downtown hotel used during the NFL Scouting Combine hooked together by a network of indoor walkways.
But somehow, the Jets and the representatives for cornerback Darrelle Revis failed to cross paths in nearly a week there.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets “avoided” their cornerback’s people, fueling concerns that the team is looking to move on rather than extend his contract.
Maybe they were busy giving Jim Brown a physical?
According to the report, neither new general manager John Idzik, coach Rex Ryan nor owner Woody Johnson didn’t meet or have contact with Revis’ representatives during the week. The Jets did meet with the reps of a number of other players.
That’s not going to do anything to dampen the speculation that the Jets would prefer to trade Revis than pay him.
While Ryan was cracking jokes about trading Revis for 77-year-old running backs last week, the general theme of his appearance in the media room was that he didn’t want to part with the All-Pro corner, who is coming off a torn ACL.
But Revis said during an interview on the NFL Network that the lack of a new deal “might be a situation,” and the two sides apparently did nothing to bridge the gap in Indy.
