If you are a team interested in trading for Darrelle Revis, I am warning you in advance. Just because Adrian Peterson isn’t human doesn’t mean everyone who comes back from ACL surgery gets better. Then there is the possibility of an “Nnamdi” happening.
Plus, you never know how a player will be in a new system, so teams need to do their due diligence. According to CBS Sports the Jets are exploring trade options.
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 fearful that Revis will leave when he is an unrestricted free agent after next year, since his current contract states he can’t be franchised.
Curious to see what the market would be for him, but don’t be shocked if this happens during the NFL Draft.
