I hope this was the substance of call. "Darelle we want you to be a Jet until you retire. But, as you know, this is a business. I've got a cap to deal with and my job is to make the Jets a better team. So long as I can re-sign you and still have a salary structure to build this team, you will be a Jet for life. If I can not do that, I will have to explore other options, which will include a trade."
This. Is exactly what Idzik should have said to DR.
I have to think that they can sign him to deal that both sides are happy with. The Jets can't let him walk after 2013, and Revis knows he's another injury plagued season away from never seeing his top value, at a year older.
