Sources have told the News for weeks that the Jets have no intention of giving Revis a long-term contract. The best time to trade cornerback will be in the hours leading up the the start of free agency.
The Jets and Darrelle Revis are headed for a divorce.
The Daily News has learned that Gang Green is poised to trade the Pro Bowl cornerback in the coming days at the right price in its first significant step to re-build the franchise.
Sources have told the News for weeks that owner Woody Johnson has no intention of signing Revis to a long-term contract extension.
Although Revis’ health complicates matters – he’s less than five months removed from ACL surgery – the best window to deal him is during free agency, which starts Tuesday at 4 p.m., before the already-select market for Revis dries up.
“I think (the Jets are) going to move Revis,” a source familiar with the situation told the News on Tuesday. “Bet it. If he isn’t traded by tomorrow, (general manager John) Idzik is an idiot. One buyer might dry out. He has to move him. The risk of keeping him kills the franchise for five years and Idzik is gone.”
ProFootballTalk.com reported on Monday night that the Jets had a “good” trade offer on the table for Revis that would satisfy the team’s desire to get sufficient draft pick compensation and the Revis camp’s need to sign a long-term deal. The report also indicated that the Revis camp was unaware of the offer.
The News reported last week that there were a couple of “legitimate buyers” willing to trade for Revis when the new league year and trading period officially Tuesday. A source told the News this week that the Jets would like to deal him to an NFC team.
Revis, who is in the final year of a $4-year, $46 million deal struck after a 36-day holdout in 2010, will likely command $12 million-$16 million per season as part of a new long-term contract.
Revis has never asked to be traded, but this much is certain: The Jets aren’t willing to pay him top dollar.
The Jets, who intentionally avoided the Revis camp at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis two weeks ago, haven’t opened the lines of communication with the cornerback’s representatives to try to negotiate a long-term deal to remain “A Jet for Life.”
Johnson declined to discuss the Revis situation on Monday in an NFL event in New York, telling reporters that he’d address the matter “next week” at the league meetings in Arizona. Revis, of course, may not be on his team at that point.
“Woody Johnson is never paying him,” a source told the News this week.
Time, however, isn’t necessarily on the Jets’ side.
The few interested teams that have the desire and resources to trade for Revis will address their cornerback needs during free agency if Idzik isn’t willing to pull the trigger now. The window to trade Revis may close if the Jets wait too long.
But what is adequate compensation for an elite player coming off injury?
The Seahawks were willing to trade the Vikings their first-round pick in this year’s draft (25th overall) for wide receiver Percy Harvin on Monday, but the circumstances were much different. The Vikings took a risk by trading a dynamic player within the conference to another playoff team.
The Revis compensation for the Jets, who are entering a rebuilding phase, will be different. The Jets may not be able to get a first-round pick now… or ever.
It’ll be up to Johnson and Idzik to determine whether the offer(s) on the table are good enough to trade away the face of their franchise now.
They’ve shopped him. They want to move him during free agency.
But will the Jets pull the trigger?
CAn you copy and paste the article? Im reading on a mobile phone and would like to read it. Thanks
THanks c mart
The NYDN is a glorified tabloid now.
Mehta's articles are baseless and pure conjecture.
I'm sorry. How does that make sense?“I think (the Jets are) going to move Revis,” a source familiar with the situation told the News on Tuesday. “Bet it. If he isn’t traded by tomorrow, (general manager John) Idzik is an idiot. One buyer might dry out. He has to move him. The risk of keeping him kills the franchise for five years and Idzik is gone.”
The risk of keeping him kills the franchise for five years!?! Does he mean if the Jets sign him to a $15M/Year contract? Or just keeping him and not resigning him, or just not trading him tomorrow?
Let's see where Victor Butler ends up..Manish was the only one that had that info..That could have come from Butler's agent, but he still was the only one with that info
How is this new information? These writers just reiterate what has been said and couch it as new information. Lazy journalism aimed at getting you with a headline. Mehta and his ghost sources.
So where is Revis going? And for what picks? This is old news. We need the answers!
