New York Jets will look to trade Darrelle Revis
In shocking news, reports are coming out from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport that the New York Jets will look to trade superstar corner back Darrelle Revis this off-season. Woody Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, is concerned that the team will not be able to re-sign Revis if he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2014.
During the 2013 NFL season, the Jets will owe Revis just $6 million dollars. At the end of the 2013 season, Revis has a player option and could become an unrestricted free agent. Under his current contract, the superstar corner also has a player option in 2015 and 2016.
With reports from Rapoport that Revis wants to be a member of the Jets for his entire career, why would the team look to trade their star player?
With the Jets salary cap situation and their current state of rebuilding, Revis may just not fit into their future plans.
Revis has also previously sat out of training camp because he was upset with his contract situation. This suggests that Revis will expect a high contract if he decides to become an unrestricted free agent.
Finally, the Jets could trade Revis for a number of high draft picks, which would help with their rebuilding process.
As a Bills fan, I would definitely part with a first rounder for Darrelle Revis.
