Veiled shots at Woody Johnson.
He is as good as gone.
Interseting Nate Burleson saying there were 2 other CBs better than Revis right now...unless I heard that wrong
One thing is for certain. Tanny should never ever get another GM job for the deal he gave Revis. I don't care the situation, you never sign one of the best players in the league to a deal that allows him not to be franchised. I talked about this years ago and got pounded for it because "we should just be happy hes back at camp". Tanny is the #1 reason we're forced to trade maybe the best CB of all time and a sure fire HOFer. Had we had the option to franchise him, Revis would have to settle for somewhat of a deal that works for both sides. Or else we could keep slapping the tag on him. Just like Seatle did to Walter Jones for years.
To all the people saying that you don't trade Revis except for a kings ransom, what would you rather happen?
A) Keep Revis for one more year, which is bound to be a rebuilding season, then have him walk in 2014 while receiving a 3rd round (at best) comp pick.
B) Trade him now for a 1st round pick to someone like Denver or San Fran who view themselves as one player away from a Superbowl.
I'll take option B, personally.
As a long time Jet fan that interview did nothing for me to sympathize with Revis one iota!
This effing guy held out as a rookie.
He didn't honor his contract twice.
The Jets made him the highest paid defensive player until the Bills gave Williams that stupid Azz 100 million.
I was hoping that things were taken out of context with Revis, maybe it was an old interview, but nope, just seeing him talking like he's been some victim held against hs will or something & bashing Woody, the guy that's been signing those monstrous signing bonuses makes me ill that cheered for that selfish piece of Chit!
I can't wait for Idzik to send his azz packing, & please don't send him to a contender, let him die slowly in some crappy city where Revis Island becomes Revis sandbar.
Revis is one of the reasons this team didn't win a Superbowl, as his contracts tied our hands from getting some real pass rushers that would have made a difference vs Big Ben, in 2010.
My last image as Revis as a Jet will be his ole along the sideline on 3rd down vs Tebow in a game that changed our whole season.
Idzik, do what you have to do to build a team. Revis is not a leader & definitely not a team player.
Time to burn those Revis and Sanchez jerseys.
Jets trade Revis to Denver for the 28th overall pick
1st round: OG Chance Warmack - Alabama
1st round: QB Mike Glennon - NC State
2nd round: OLB Alex Okafor - Texas
3rd round: RB Stepfan Taylor - Stanford
Gives this team a young foundation on offense to build around and a legit passrusher with a non-stop motor.
If we walked away from the first two days of the draft with that setup, I'd be happier than a pig in sh*t.

The 28th pick is not enough for Revis...it's just not
This is a negotiation both ways....Revis can rip Woody all he wants, it doesn't mean Woody gives a Rats as$
The best thing for the JEts is to have Revis retire a Jet....If Revis wants to do that,I'm sure the Jets will pay him handsomely
Found this a few minutes ago.Darrelle Revis says coach Rex Ryan "wants me to be here" with the Jets, but it "starts with" owner Woody Johnson.
When asked by NFL Network's Andrea Kremer if Ryan has any say in the cornerback's future with the team, Revis said, "Nah, I wouldn't think. I'm sure he'll have a say so, but overall, no. It starts from the top. It starts with Woody Johnson." Revis recently voiced his displeasure with how the team has handled the rumors with him, saying he was "speechless" when rumors first facilitated. Revis says that Johnson's unwillingness to offer a new mega-contract "might be a situation" as to why he's on the block.
The front office is staying quiet, and Revis is making the noise now, along with a few reporters.
The team is handling this properly, IMO. At some point they'll have to make a counter statement to Revis' claims, but being quiet is refreshing from the weekly chest thumping.
