The boldface makes no sense. Revis "worked so hard?" What the hell does that mean? The Jets currently hold his cards, he is a player of the NY Jets, this isn't Revis fighting to go to FA. Revis first choice is to sign with the Jets, he's made that clear throughout. He's also made it clear he wants to be paid, top defensive player money. Now his ACL injury impacts that wish, the Jets have to tread carefully on this, they have a fan base to please, and they have a player they don't want to alienate, but if the player refuses to be reasonable throughout negotiations, the Jets have no choice but to consider moving him, to get something for him now then lose him all together for only compensation picks.
None of what you said about the Jets not having the ability to franchise tag Revis has anything to do with the fact you are trying to spin that there is no trade market for Revis, that is asinine, it's stupid, and that market already exists, you're wrong, get it through your thick skull.
Naturally, any trade will hinge on a prospective team's ability to extend Revis a contract, teams are not going to want to invest major compensation for a one year rental, but that doesn't change the fact that Revis DOES have a trade market.
You're mostly correct here and it's essentially exactly what Patman posted, without of course, all the juvenile name calling and petty insults. The Jets DO hold Revis' cards THIS YEAR as he is under contract. Revis however, holds sole control on whether to negotiate with the Jets or some other team, or if he wants to see what FA brings.
You are 100% correct that there's a market. As Patman said, he easily brings a 3rd to a team on a one year rental basis. And as you intimate, he'll bring much more than that if he's willing to negotiate an extension with any trading partner. But that decision is entirely 100% up to Revis is it not? The only relevancy of the lack of Franchise Tag is it eliminates any leverage the Jets had going into this season.
