The Jets have a gun to their heads with D Revis holding all the bullets.
BTw If Jets let Revis talk with teams about possible trades. Are they just letting those teams start the early discussions about what he wants in 2014 as a UFA. (hey Revis we not going to give up a pick for you but were prepared to offer you a monster deal in 2014. Revis to Jets I will only go to Bronco's(traded) or I will play out the season and test Fa. Bronco's we will give you a third rounder for Revis.
A man coming off an injury would prefer to have the security of a long term deal in place. If Revis can get that today with an agreement to sign and trade then he is likely to be open to that idea and not expose himself to an "unprotected" 2013.
On the other hand if he thinks the premium he will get from playing that unprotected year is substantial enough then he might just decide to roll those dice.
Even though Leon Washington made the same decision and lost.
