Give new Jets general Manager John Idzik credit, he can smell trouble.  After swimming through waves of bad publicity once again with news that the team is exploring trade scenarios for star cornerback Darrelle Revis, Idzik reached out to his injured star to do damage control.

According to ESPN New York, Idzik said Revis “reacted well to the call.”

“I reached out to Darrelle, and I made sure he knew exactly where we were coming from and that this is my first day on the job and our message to everyone was, ‘Give us a chance to get to know each other and introduce ourselves to each other,’ ” Idzik said Friday in an interview with NBC’s Pro Football Talk.

“A lot of the people in the building you know through football circles, but you’ve never worked alongside each other. So give us that chance, and give us the chance to go through our current roster. Ultimately, that’s the basis of comparison to whatever you may contemplate doing. We haven’t taken that first step, and that’s what I relayed to Darrelle.”

I can only assume Idzik did his best to stroke Revis ego and let him know he’s greatly valued regardless if they trade him or not.
