    NY Jets Actively Shopped Revis at combine

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1274592

    Jets GM John Idzik may not have found time to meet with Darrelle Revisí agents at the NFL Combine last week, but a source said he did manage to squeeze in Revis trade talk with multiple teams in Indianapolis.
    Despite the damage control talk from Idzik and Rex Ryan in Indy about how much they value Revis, the source told the Daily News on Tuesday that Idzik was ďactivelyĒ shopping Revis at the combine, and interested teams are now doing their homework on what it would take to get Revis signed to a new contract if they can satisfy the Jets with compensation.

    The Daily News reported exclusively Tuesday that Idzik, Ryan and team owner Woody Johnson didnít meet with Revisí camp during the Combine.

    Idzik is basically flying solo on the Revis talks, with Ryan and other members of the organization (other than Johnson) out of the loop.

    Teams historically use the combine in February to set the groundwork for deals that eventually get done before the draft in late April. Revisí recovery from ACL surgery could push the timetable back for a potential trade until the summer. If he is healthy and re-establishes himself as not only the best shutdown corner in the league but also the best defensive player in the NFL, heís worth two first-round draft choices.

    The source said the word around the NFL is the Revis trade talk is at the directive of Johnson. Even so, Idzik, the rookie GM, is in a final say decision-making role for the first time in his 20-year career in NFL front offices and his Jets tenure may eventually be defined by how he handles this delicate situation.

    Idzik was asked at the combine if he would listen to offers for Revis. He provided an answer that was not limited to Revis.

    ďWe will always field calls and always have internal discussions about how we can improve our team day-to-day, position-by-position,Ē he said. ďThatís an ongoing process.Ē

    Several teams emerged as having interest in dealing for Revis and could be more willing to pay him what he wants than the Jets, who are entering a complete rebuilding mode with a coach who has every appearance of being a lame duck.

    Revis is coming off ACL surgery and going into the final year of his four-year $46 million contract ó he is making just $6 million this year after the deal was front-loaded with $32.5 million in the first two years. As part of the contract, the Jets canít franchise Revis, which changes everything. If they had the option to franchise Revis after the 2013 season, they would have the luxury of watching him play this season and then try to sign him while still having the franchise tag as a last resort.

    Now they will risk losing him for nothing if they donít trade him by the Tuesday after the eighth game of the 2013 season or if they donít have him signed before he becomes an unrestricted free agent next March. Only the Jets could get themselves into this kind of situation with their best player.

    Ultimately, it comes down to one issue: Does Johnson have the stomach to write checks to Revis for more than heís ever written to any Jets player? Deals can be structured to minimize the salary cap hit. It comes down to cash. Does Johnson have the desire or the capability to write Revis a monster check?

    One of the Jets options is to trade Revis and let somebody else pay him while they take the draft choices they would get in return to rebuild a depleted roster. That approach is going to be a tough sell to an already disgruntled fan base which committed its hard-earned money to PSLs when the new $1.7 billion stadium opened in 2010 following a season when Ryan took the Jets to the AFC Championship Game in his first year with the team.

    My feeling is when you have great players, you keep great players and find a way to make it work ó especially a guy like Revis, who doesnít cause a bit of trouble off the field and despite the deterioration of the team around him, truly wants to remain with the Jets.

    Right now, itís impossible to establish Revisí market value in a trade or a contract until he proves heís coming back as Revis and not Kyle Wilson.

    Maybe Revis will make a full recovery like the 2012 ACL trio of Adrian Peterson (he came within nine yards of breaking the NFL rushing record), Jamaal Charles (he led the AFC in rushing) and safety Eric Berry (he made the Pro Bowl), which would increase his contract leverage and the leverage the Jets have in trade talks.

    It used to be players returning from an ACL didnít return to form until their second season back. Thatís now changed. The recovery time has been accelerated. Still, thereís no guarantee Revis comes back as good or better. It will be the summer before we know that. So, my advice to Revis and the Jets: Chill out and reconvene in August.

    If thats true John Idzik has already lost all of my respect as a person and as a GM.
    Taking over as a GM and then giving away your best Player / employee is the dumbest thing you can do.

    Two things.

    1: He wouldn't be "giving him away", ok? He'd be TRADING him.
    2: Our super best player in J-E-T-S! JETS JETS JETS! history is.....a ****ing CB? Yeah, don't care.

    Perhaps Idzik should follow you on twitter to get a real clue.


    Revis cares nothing about the JETS..just Revis. Bank on it. Revis is trying.

    Revis is 100% gone. We knew this a while ago. Anyone thinking he will be on the opening day roster is just wishful thinking. This team knows it's not winning in the next 2 years. So at this point you either give a CB 100 million, risk losing him for nothing or trade him to help acquire and afford a new QB, RB, OLB, OL(all more important positions).

    There are reasons why nobody on the Jets have contacted Revis or his agents. Our best player is upset and nobody is trying to calm him. Why?

    1. Revis is going to be traded and Idzik is keeping this as quiet as possible so he doesnt hurt any leverage.

    2. Revis is extremely frustrated. Idzik is a professional, if Revis was going to be on this team he would have been called and talked too by now.

    What do you want him to do? Just ask woody to sign a 40 mill check along with a 6 year 15 mill a year contract. If Revis play drops off like Dion Sanders did when he was 30 and the jets are still on the hook for what will likely be cap hits of 17 mill how will you feel then?

    The guy is doing due diligence.

    If they have to wait until summer that's just as much risk for the Jets, if not more. What does actively shopping mean anyway? Was he holding an auction? What ever it means he should be doing it. Lets get some bidding wars going for the teams with GMs like 54lb that want to pay a corner 16mil per year.

    Do what's best for the team... I'd like to keep Revis but if a better deal comes along that improves the team then so be it.

    Remember he's coming off an injury and the Jets backfield held up ok in his absence. Sometimes you have to strike while the iron's hot...

    Lets see: Revis has already held out twice and now he's missed almost a whole season because of injury. What do you want Idzik to do - go ahead and give Revis 100 mil over the next 6 seasons and cripple the Jets from getting any other players. Nothing like paying a CB that kind of money to finish 6-10 the next 6 seasons. Either Revis takes maybe 10 mil a season or trade him. Its on Revis and his greedy agents not the Jets. The Jets know what they can and will pay him. If Revis wont play for that amount then its on Revis.

    Right. Instead he should give the greedy SOB the 16mil per year contract that he wants DESPITE the fact that he's never been about the team and is the definition of selfish. If that's how you feel than I think Idzik will be fine without your respect.

    Love Revis as a player. Hate him as a person. Couldn't care less about him going to the hall and couldn't care less about him being the "bestest corner ever!!" if it costs us 16mil a year. I will never ever understand why some of the people here try and argue that we should give that to him. Wouldn't sign him for anything more than 10-12mil per year.

    It's been on Revis since he refused to play for his first signed contract after he got his bonus money up front. There's a reason that some folks call him Mevis. Unfortunately for the Jets, if not for that attitude and his injury history there would be a mega bidding war going on for him now.

    the majority are correct this time...

    Fortunately the Jets no longer have Mr Softie as their GM ready to cave to whatever Uncle Sean and Mevis' other gang of shysters demand for their seriously injured commodity.

    Sorry boys, your buddy, Mr Mikey is gone. And, it looks like the new sheriff in town is not prepared to bend over and accede to your demands.

    Hopefully, we can find somebody willing to buy his reputation for a draft pick or picks and not his current status of probably not being able to play much or well in 2013

    Lets not make the Asomugha mistake that Philly made and vastly overpay Mevis based on reputation and discover we have another -- Interception Machine or Harris type destructive contract on our hands

    Idzik is playing this perfectly. He's showing the Revis camp that he's in control and that he will get to them when he's ready. He'll go to Revis with a fair deal for both sides. Something like 5 years 12 mil/per. If revis don't want it, he's going to get traded. Simple as that. No hard feelings.

    It's called due diligence. I have no problem with it at all. Nor should anyone who roots for the green and white. If Idzik can make a big move by moving a player who has proved time and time again its about "me" not "us". Then DO IT! If you can get two high picks that can turn into ten year starters for the team yes. I however would not move him based only on money.

    This team is going to bad in 2013 whether you want to believe it or not. And then the coach is going to get fired and the team will have to start fresh in 2014. That probably means that if the Jets draft correctly, manage the cap well and acquire a respectable QB the earliest the team will be a legitimate contender again will be 2015.

    If the Jets give Revis what he wants (to be the highest paid defensive player in the history of the sport) he will be 30 years old before the kickoff of the 2015 season and will be making franchise QB money. The team will most likely be on the hook for paying that salary until he is 32 or 33. Not a smart move.

    If the Jets can parlay Revis into a first round pick in 2014 then they will have an excellent chance to draft a potential franchise QB in a draft that could have two. That is how you build a franchise for the future. Not by paying a CB franchise QB money until he is 32 or 33.

    Your best player is a friggn' cornerback, they are a dime a dozen in the NFL.

    Idzik is trying to improve the mess on the Jets and you "lose all respect" for him because he is trying to unload a poison and make the Jets a better football team?
