1- Trade him for picks which frees up cap space going forward
2- Resign him to long term contract at big bucks
3- LEt him play out his contract and get nothing in return when he walks in FA
Option 3 is by far the worst option. To keep Revis this year (when we aren't likely to win a Super Bowl) is just a waste.
Also there is option 4- Revis won't sign with anyone till he test free agency in 2014. (no tag on him - alot of teams will have cash not just the Jets) That happens and one and two might not be options anymore. That why losing that franchise tag was so devastating . Only Revis knows this answer as the ball clearly in his hands, not the Jets.
