Jets exploring trade options for Revis?

Jets owner Woody Johnson to explore trading Darrelle Revis
By Jason La Canfora | CBS Sports NFL Insider
January 23, 2013 7:28 pm ET

The New York Jets, fresh off an exhaustive hunt for new general manager John Idzik, will explore options to deal star corner Darrelle Revis this offseason, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, is set to earn $6 million in 2013 (between salary and bonuses), and owner Woody Johnson has strong reservations about the ability to extend Revis's deal, the sources said. Johnson has expressed his desire to attempt to land value for Revis now, rather than risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent a year from now, most likely seeking as much draft-pick compensation for him as possible.

The Jets are very much in transition mode, they have cap issues moving forward and are trying to embark on a rebuilding processafter firing former long-time general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL, engaged in a long holdout in 2010 that resulted in a contract extension that was more of a Band-Aid than anything else.

Revis signed a seven-year deal then that voids to a four-year pact, thus making him an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season. The deal also precludes him being hit with the franchise tag or any other such mechanism. Johnson has made it very clear he would like to pursue a means to reap rewards for Revis now, sources said, and it is likely to be an immediate part of Idzik's initial job duties.

Revis is considered by many to be the best defensive player in the game. And with pass rusher Mario Williams earning$60 million guaranteedfrom Buffalo a year ago, Johnson understands how financially restrictive it would be to retain him. His team desperately needs young, cheap, impact players to help reposition the team for the future, with 2013 a year of transition.

Revis is the only real trading chip that he has. Knee injury or not, there would be no shortage of teams interested in securing his services and no shortage of rebuilding teams sitting on massive cap space in 2013. The Jets are also likely to be hard-pressed to retain free agents like tight end Dustin Keller, running back Shonn Greene and defensive tackle Mike DeVito, though they will make a push to retain DeVito, the sources said.

Getting Revis signed to an extension would be a possibility to trying to remedy this situation, but the sources said Johnson has established his desire to move him if he can secure fair value in exchange.

Dealing Revis would incur a $9 million cap hit due to some option-bonus prorations involved in the contract -- thus Revis would count an additional $3 million against the cap than he is currently scheduled to -- but the Jets could navigate that relatively easily according to sources familiar with their cap situation, via a restructuring or by releasing a veteran. The team is using 2013 as a year for cap and budgetary housecleaning, to get situated for the future. It stands to reason that come 2014, both Revis and head coach Rex Ryan, are gone.


Any interest?

Makes perfect sense for the Jets to trade him. They need a major rebuild. They are by no means "a piece or two" away from being competitive.

They also have serious salary cap woes. Trading Revis would probably afford salary cap relief and get them some decent draft pick(s) to make headway on rebuilding. Revis is a phenomenal talent, but you don't rebuild around a CB.

As far as his talent - definitely not.

His performance should have been recognized as top 10...

'Gold rush forming' for possible Darrelle Revis trade
By Mike Freeman | National NFL Insider
January 25, 2013 11:09 am ET

One NFL general manager called the trade interest in Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis “one of the biggest potential trade markets for a player ever.” He likened the growing interest in Revis to when Reggie White was leaving Philadelphia as a free agent or the Peyton Manning sweepstakes last year. That, basically, says it all about what's happening with Revis.

The possibility of a Revis trade, first reported by CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, is no longer just a possibility, according to a variety of sources. The Jets are strongly leaning toward the trade and teams are considering giving up significant capital to get him.

"There's a Revis gold rush forming,” said a general manager.

The teams highly interested in Revis are looking at teams like the Seahawks and the two Super Bowl participants and how despite this being an offense-driven league now, defenses still can dramatically and quickly change a team's fortune.

Several team sources are claiming the Jets want a first- and second-round pick for Revis, which is astronomical payment considering Revis -- while one of the best players in all of football -- is coming off knee surgery and will want a hefty contract.

The Jets won't get a one and two (no way), but teams think the Jets can get a nice gaggle of picks and a player.

Sources say one of the teams highly interested is the New England Patriots, but not even the Jets, who have made some screwy decisions over the years, would trade Revis to the division-rival Patriots and, in the process, hand them a Super Bowl.

Other teams highly interested, I'm told, are Denver, San Francisco, Buffalo (not happening -- division rival), and even Seattle, which already has some of the best defensive backs in the game. One team also constantly mentioned by league sources is Green Bay, though the Packers, possessors of one of the best front offices in all of sports, usually don't give up high-round picks.

So the race to get Revis is on.

Who will win?
I have a bad feeling that Denver is going to wind up with him in an effort to get Manning a SB before he goes...

Problem is, it makes little sense for anyone else to trade for him. IIRC, he has a player option the year after next, and he WILL opt out and get paid bigtime in free agency.

I think that people really underestimate what Revis could do for the Chiefs. He was pretty much the reason the Jets became a perennial playoff contender (and his injury was also the reason they were the dumpster fire they were this year).

He can literally shut down his side of the field. I mean, think about every single play you pretty much don't have to worry about them completing a pass to the guy Revis is covering.

I get it, it would probably take a LOT to get him, but Revis is a once in a decade player. He's that good. IMO, he's nearly as valuable as a franchise QB.

He's coming off a major knee injury, creeping closer to 30 and it will likely need at least a 1st rounder plus some to pry him away.....and then once you pry him away, you'll need to be prepared to make him one of the highest paid players in the league...if not THE highest paid player in the league.

That's a lot to pay for a player who may not be the same after the ACL and is just a year or two away from inevitable decline.

Denver will give up their entire draft for him and a decade's supply of Papa Peyton's.

I'd do a 3rd rounder for sure. But we aren't really in a position to go out and trade for a top CB right now. That's what teams that are ready to compete in the playoffs do.

But he is, by far, the best CB in the NFL when he's healthy.

Nah I don't buy that. There is no 3-4 rebuilding plan in the NFL anymore. The Colts just went from the worst team in the league to playoffs.

So take the "ready to compete for playoffs" factor out.

2nd and 5th. 3rd sure the **** won't do it. Somebody in the late first might give one up. They won't get a 1 plus 2 though.
