I love the guy. However, with the salary cap hell the Jets are in, can we afford him? I saw Joe Namath play with a sub-par cast as he, at the time was paid the bulk of the payroll. You can't win that way. The guy's set up for life, show some balls and loyalty to the team who made you rich and sign a non-bank breaking contract and win a championship.
My repsect for Idzik just jumped up a notch, if true.
Let's see, our offense is in total shambles, this team is going through a rebuilding phase, and we just fielded the 2nd ranked secondary in the league without Revis.
But yeah, let's dole out Tom Brady/Peyton Manning money to a f*cking CB. Makes sense.
It seems like a lot of you guys are just obsessed with bragging about having a HOF caliber player on the team. One that doesn't even play a premium position.
How about we use all of our resources to fix this abortion of an offense?
No QB, no RB, no TE, a huge question mark at receiver and 2/5 of our OL is set to hit free agency.
But we must keep our precious Revis at all cost!
What started out as denial for me is possibly in the acceptance stage. FOr all his greedy tactics off the field, on the field I love Revis. In your face, physical and a beast.
To piggyback on @JasonLaCanfora report: at least 2 teams have contacted NYJ abt Revis. Issue will be contract. can't be franchised post '13
You don't trade the best person on your team. It makes no sense whatsoever. Regardless of position. Lets wait and see what the market is.
the chicken littles on this board that want to trade Revis are laughable and very sad...good thing him being traded is a figment of someones imagination.

He will leave when his contract is up and we will have gotten nothing for him.
We need to get something for him now while he has value.
We are going to be a losing franchise until 2015 at the earliest, holding onto him for the next two seasons is pointless.
Our best play here would be to trade revis during the season. Let him prove to other teams that he is healthy and hope a contending team loses a corner.
If they want to dump him prior to this years draft, 2 #2s will be the best offer they get.
Everyone likes to point to Revis' contract as the reason we have no maneuverability, and that's simply not the case. Revis(this year aside) has earned every penny he has been given. David Harris(more guaranteed money than Patrick Willis), Cromartie, Holmes and Sanchez's contracts are the killers. You could find an adequate replacement to Harris, Holmes and Sanchez for about a third of the price. You could find an adequate second corner for half the price Cromartie makes. To find a true, bonafide # 1 CB that is not on their rookie contract, you are going to be paying Revis type money.
Revis' contract isn't the problem, because the price of an equal talent is acutally pretty good for market value, it's the other contracts that are killing us. Whether or not you think CB is worth that or they win SB's doesn't really matter, that's what the upper echelon CB's earn, not just from the Jets.
It isn't necessary for the Jets to have a complete fire sale to rebuild within a few years. There are multiple ways to rebuild, it doens't have to always be with loading up on as many draft picks as you can.
All of that said, I'm still do not know at this point to be for or against said move, until I saw the proposed deal, it's really hard to be in favor for or against.

I can guarantee that there are a couple of teams and owners out there that will give the Jets an arm and a leg for Revis. They would love to have the best corner in the league on their team for the next 6 seasons. A team that thinks they are close and Revis is the missing piece. Maybe the Redskins and their gambling owner? Maybe the Colts? Maybe Dallas? Cinncy too cheap. I'm sure the Pats would want him but Jets won't send him there. Maybe New Orleans? Possibly Denver? How about the Giants? Houston? All these teams could add Revis and make the championship game. Start a bidding war. Getting Revis would almost guarantee any of these teams a very good season. He got the dysfunctional Jets to the championship game twice didn't he? What could he do for these teams? Maybe put them over the top? Creat that buzz for these teams and the Jets should get a kings ransom for Revis. No joke.
