Report: Jets Avoided Darrelle Revis’ Agents During Combine
The writing may really be on the wall now for Darrelle Revis, and it doesn’t look for him going forward, to remain a New York Jet.
The New York Daily News is reporting that the Jets brass, including owner Woody Johnson, GM John Idzik, and head coach Rex Ryan, didn’t meet or contact Revis’ representatives one time while they were Indianapolis, which further fuels speculation that they will trade their star cornerback.
The avoidance comes one month after reports surfaced that the Jets would explore trade options for Revis. Reports state that representatives for both parties were within walking distance of each others hotels at the Combine, and yet a meeting or communication simply did not take place.
Jets brass did meet with representatives of Santonio Holmes, Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland, Austin Howard, Shonn Greene and LaRon Landry during the week, but elected not to talk to Revis’ agents.
Sources suggest the Jets don’t want to make Revis the highest paid player in the league, nor do they want to give him a long term deal.
The Jets at this point would prefer to rebuild with younger, cheaper players.
