Now all of a sudden it is a story and the NY Post of all media claims the Jets were willing to trade him before the injury? Yeah....and I have a bridge to sell you.
GTFO with this b/s. It is about headlines and trying to sell papers; in other words, it is a LIE! Unnamed sources to progress the fabricated story.
You could look at it as Tanny spoke to a couple of GMs to gage what his value is. The other GMs would not break the confidence, but now that Tanny is no longer the GM there is no longer an reason to maintain the private confidence. The reporters that go to the league meetings all know which GMs are buddy buddy with each other, when the "story" about Revis situation broke this past week those GMs were probably asked. I don't see this as far fetched at all. They never said that the jets were calling people trying to trade him.
