Of course not.
So we're going to trade him to get an extra draft pick or two to try to turn into the next stud QB / pass rusher (I'll ignore LT as we already have a very good one).
We'd better be very, very sure we can get a real stud. I'm sure everyone thought we'd get another pass rusher after we traded Abe.
Here's the thing. The Jets hold all the cards. They know how much it will take to resign him. They know if they are or are not willing to do so.
IF, the new FO has no plans of resigning Revis, whatever we get is gravvy.
The Jets FO would be negligent if they did not do everything in their power to explore a trade - today. THis is similar to the Keyshawn trade. It was the right thing to do then, and it's the right thing to do now.
