    It's the right thing to do.

    You're not gonna win anything by making a CB the highest paid defensive player in the game. Mevis is, ultimately, a mercenary for higher.

    Yeah. Explore as in... "Hey INDY. How are you today? Would you be interested in trading Luck for Revis? No? Have a good day."

    Jets owner Woody Johnson to explore trading Darrelle Revis
    By Jason La Canfora | CBS Sports NFL Insider

    The New York Jets, fresh off an exhaustive hunt for new general manager John Idzik, will explore options to deal star corner Darrelle Revis this offseason, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

    Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, is set to earn $6 million in 2013 (between salary and bonuses), and owner Woody Johnson has strong reservations about the ability to extend Revis's deal, the sources said. Johnson has expressed his desire to attempt to land value for Revis now, rather than risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent a year from now, most likely seeking as much draft-pick compensation for him as possible.

    The Jets are very much in transition mode, they have cap issues moving forward and are trying to embark on a rebuilding processafter firing former long-time general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL, engaged in a long holdout in 2010 that resulted in a contract extension that was more of a Band-Aid than anything else.

    Revis signed a seven-year deal then that voids to a four-year pact, thus making him an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season. The deal also precludes him being hit with the franchise tag or any other such mechanism. Johnson has made it very clear he would like to pursue a means to reap rewards for Revis now, sources said, and it is likely to be an immediate part of Idzik's initial job duties.

    Revis is considered by many to be the best defensive player in the game. And with pass rusher Mario Williams earning$60 million guaranteedfrom Buffalo a year ago, Johnson understands how financially restrictive it would be to retain him. His team desperately needs young, cheap, impact players to help reposition the team for the future, with 2013 a year of transition.

    Revis is the only real trading chip that he has. Knee injury or not, there would be no shortage of teams interested in securing his services and no shortage of rebuilding teams sitting on massive cap space in 2013. The Jets are also likely to be hard-pressed to retain free agents like tight end Dustin Keller, running back Shonn Greene and defensive tackle Mike DeVito, though they will make a push to retain DeVito, the sources said.

    Getting Revis signed to an extension would be a possibility to trying to remedy this situation, but the sources said Johnson has established his desire to move him if he can secure fair value in exchange.

    Dealing Revis would incur a $9 million cap hit due to some option-bonus prorations involved in the contract -- thus Revis would count an additional $3 million against the cap than he is currently scheduled to -- but the Jets could navigate that relatively easily according to sources familiar with their cap situation, via a restructuring or by releasing a veteran. The team is using 2013 as a year for cap and budgetary housecleaning, to get situated for the future. It stands to reason that come 2014, both Revis and head coach Rex Ryan, are gone.

    He's a CORNERBACK and most likely will want to become the richest man in the world. Screw that.

    Get it through your head that you do not NEED a HoF CB. He is a LUXURY.

    The dumbest thing is the people turning on Revis. "Mevis", really?

    Go ahead and trade the best player in the history of the team for a bad draft pick in the worst draft in years. See how that works out.

    After the way Champ Bailey played in that playoff game the Broncos will be ringing our phone off the hook...

    I've been waiting to see what Idzik does with Revis, the QB situation and the draft before I form an opinion of him.

    I guess he is willing to make the tough and unpopular decisions. Definitely a positive. I would guess that the powers that be are split on what to do with Revis so if he was to trade him I think it would be a bold move on his part. But he was hired to fix this mess.

    If you trade him, it had better be for a haul. And our great new GM better not blow those picks, or he won't outlast our Chris Farley like coach.

    Sane post. I want to keep Revis just as much as everyone here, but the reality is that he will cripple the salary cap for years to come.

    I asked this before, and I'll ask it again. How many games would the Jets have won this season had Revis played the entire season? I will submit that they would have finished 7-9 at best.

    Jets showed they can function without him. This year Sanchez and the offense (and many other factors) were the problems, not the lack of Revis.

    Hell of a lot closer than we ever got without having the best defensive player in the game (i.e. the prior 40 years)
