    Geez, what is wrong with some of you people? Why the urge to get rid of a HOF player? Shouldn't the Jets try to re-sign him first? I certainly think so. Plus there's nothing wrong with him playing out his contract and leaving.

    The Bucs should give their first young pick THIS year, plus another pick and a player. If not, tell them to F off.
    I do not like Ray Lewis, but he was on ESPN Radio and was speaking about how important it is to get as many players as possible to "buy into" the team concept when building a championship. He believes that one of the main reasons the Ravens won the SB was because every player on the team bought into this thought.

    Darrell Revis is a great talent, maybe the most talented player in our history. But Darrell Revis has shown time and time again that he is far from a team player.

    Factoring all this in, and the fact that the JETS appear to be far from a championship its time to take the most valuable chip and cash it in.

    Sounds like pure rhetoric to me.

    It's a win win situation.

    The Jets have received several trade proposals, but none of them has been strong enough to motivate the Jets into making the move and the team does not think any trade is imminent.

    Darrelle Revis
    The Buccaneers have made an offer, according to another source, but it does not appear the offer is good enough to push new general manager John Idzik into trading the player widely considered the best cornerback in football.

    Revis is entering the final year of his four-year, $46 million deal and is believed to be seeking a long-term contract that pays him around $15-16 million a year. There have been no negotiations between the Jets and Revis, according to several sources. Revis is due a $1 million roster bonus Saturday if he is still on the Jets roster, but the Jets are not going to rush trading their best player over that.

    Idzik is taking a deliberate, steady approach as he tries to rebuild the Jets. He is leaving all of his options open with Revis, including letting him play out this season and then assessing whether to attempt to re-sign him next year. That seems like a long shot, though, with the payday Revis will be looking for as a free agent.

    Any transaction involving Revis right now will be complicated by him coming off ACL surgery in October. It will be difficult for the Jets to receive full value in a trade with other teams unsure of his health. Teams must also be willing to give the Jets the compensation they are seeking as well as pay Revis what he is looking for in a new contract.

    Reports surfaced in January on the night before Idzikís introductory press conference that Jets owner Woody Johnson was open to trading Revis. Both Idzik and coach Rex Ryan stated their desire to keep Revis at the NFL Scouting Combine in February.

    nice. they're using the market to negotiate a better deal for them if they do trade him, and are setting it up to pay him less if they keep him.

    I would do the deal. The 2nd should be a starter on this team and the pick next year will add flexibility when it comes to finding a new QB.

    I would consider myself a stauch Revis supporter. However, after hearing more and more about how this guy is never happy and never will be, I have come to terms with the Jets needing to get rid of him. I find it difficult to believe that he is a team player that wants to play for a super bowl.

    What has he ever done ON THE FIELD to demonstrate that he's interested in anything but winning.

    The guy shows up every single game and plays lights out. Does his job better than any player in the league, week in week out.

    You do not know what he is like in the locker room. You do not know him personally.

    Saying he is not a team player is just false.

    He's the one of the few things this franchise has gotten right.

    Just posturing to try and get the Bucs to up the offer. Exactly what the Vikings did.

    from a playing perspective, yes, you're right. but when you see tom brady offer to restructure so the team can afford welker, and then you see revis demanding $15 or so million per year on a team that has so many holes, it separates revis from the nfl's leaders who would do anything to win. revis will do anything to win in practice and on the field. but there are other players who want to win more and take actions off the field as well. revis has a right to get as much money as he wants but show me a team leader whose nickname is as selfish as Mevis.

    Totally agreed, by all counts he keeps the financial whinging and actual performance totally separate. He's a good team mate, a leader and an excellent example as to how to prepare for games and a season. Revis is not a bad team guy at all and team mates will take the financial things a lot better than fans will.

    Take a second this year and dump his salary. Be rid of a cancer. Addition by subtractioon. Millner, Trufant or Rhodes can be had in Rd 1. Start anew.
    GOAT and Best CB ever? NONSENSE. Has never even been DPOY. Best on the Jets isn't saying much. Damaged goods until proven otherwise.

    Cornerback is one of the few positions where you can be selfish and a good teammate all at the same time. He gets put out there on nearly 100% of the snaps to do one simple job: take out the opposing #1 WR. Preparing hard for and being excellent at that is just as good for Team Revis as it is for the Jets. There's a reason why he's called "Revis Island"... he can basically be all alone out there doing his thing. I wouldn't necessarily equate this with being a team leader.

    However, Tom Brady is the second earner in the family. His wife has a net worth of $150 million and her annual earnings according to Forbes are:

    May 2011 to May 2012 Earnings: $45 Million
    May 2010 to May 2011 Earnings: $45 Million
    May 2009 to May 2010 Earnings: $25 Million

    That's why TB can easily give a hometown discount. Revis is a solo act.

    The problem with the Bucs offer is the "or" as stated in the article.

    It shouldn't be 2013 2nd rounder "or" 2014 1st rounder. If the Bucs are unwilling to give up the 2013 1st rounder then the trade MUST include both a 2013 2nd rounder and 2014 1st rounder.

    Then they can add other pieces, but anything less than those 2 picks should be non-negotiable.

    While the other players try pay lip service to the idea that on the field on off the field issues are completely separate I personally question the ability of any team to pull that off when the dispute is as high profile as the ones involving #24. When Darrelle has gone through his highly publicized hold outs, it has to bleed into the organizational focus of the team.

    It is pretty clear to me that even outside of actual holdout that team Revis is not above selectively leaking stories into the media in order to publicize the fact that he is not happy or feel disrespected or whatever. Over time this use of the media in this fashion has got to take its toll of the rest of the roster. In other words he is using the public the media and to a certain extend the other players on the roster as pawn in his long range strategies. They are going to get asked about this stuff and that has to grate on them

    Players are also not stupid. They also understand very well that in a hard salary cap league that any money paid to PETER is always always always robbed from PAUL first. So the idea that Darrelle Revis is holding out for 11%-12% of the total team salary cap has also got to register with the other players on a very basic level.

    2014 First > 2013 First. Especially considering Tampa could yield a top 5 pick next year in that division.

    he's a free agent in a year. that's the rub.

    This is a load of sh*t.

    Do you have kids? Do you have a job?

    THIS IS HIS JOB. It's not a fcking game for these guys, it's a business. It's their livelihood. He takes it as seriously as anyone in the league. So much so that he's the best player at his position in PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL...

    And he wants to get paid? In a sport where your career is generally less than 10 years? And you really only get to cash in on 1 maybe 2 big contracts??

    Nahhh, who would have thought...

    That's because Schiano and the Bucs are stupid and the Jets are full of geniuses, right?
    They know they can get a superb CB in the draft. Why would they toss all that away for an overpriced, injured player?
    Dump Revis and his salary. As said in investing, "The first loss is the best loss". Hold on a lose more.

    Joey gets it.

    When will you people stop trying to DESTROY your own team with NO plan to rebuild it better than what you tore down?! A 2nd for a player that you can't find WITH A WHOLE 1st ROUND FOR A DECADE?! You can't get a 1 and a 2/3 and/or +players?! Seriously? For a guy UNDER CONTRACT THAT YOU DON'T NEED TO TRADE YET?!?!! If we cannot re-sign him reasonably, then trade him, but don't trade him because you're sick of the best player on your team JUST BECAUSE he may want to be paid MORE THAN ANYBODY is willing to pay him, so YOU don't have to pay him that either. WTH?!

    This desconstructionalist attitude with everything nowdays is so lame.

    This is why our team, and country, is f***ed.
