NFL Update NY Jets – Talks of Jets looking to Trade Revis to a Few Teams


NFL Update NY Jets – According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, Jets GM John Idzik is shopping around for a potential Revis trade with over three teams at the combine, from a source. The source also categorized the talks as Idzik “actively” shopping the CB, and indicated that other teams are now doing some work to figure out what it would take to sign Revis to a contract extension following a deal. Any team trading for Revis would thus need to have an extensive amount of cap space for this season and projected for seasons ahead, depending upon how they structure the CB’s deal.

NFL Update NY Jets Two teams with a sizable chunk of cap space that have been very public with their intentions to be spenders this offseason are the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers; as fate would have it, they also both need CB help. Whether they’re willing to send an array of draft picks back to New York remains to be seen. Other clubs who have been mentioned as potential Revis destinations include Denver, San Francisco and Seattle, who could offer the Jets a new QB in Matt Flynn as part of a trade.

It’s important to remember that nothing can happen on the trade front until March 12, and we may be waiting quite a bit longer regardless. In spite of the current situation, the Jets don’t need to make any rushed — or rash — decisions on Revis, as the New York Times’ Ben Shpigel writes. There’s also the possibility that the Jets figure out a way to keep Revis on a new deal, as Rich Cimini of points out. Meanwhile, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter writes that there’s an added wrinkle that complicates any potential deal involving Revis:

NFL Update NY Jets – Cloud Kevin Kolb be Heading to The Jets? In an appearance on NFL AM on the NFL Network, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News was asked who will be the Jets’ starting quarterback when the 2013 season begins. Despite a recent workout with David Garrard and rumors concerning Brady Quinn, Mehta expects the Jets to stick with Mark Sanchez — unless another veteran hits the market.

“The wild card, in my opinion, is if the Cardinals cut ties with Kevin Kolb and he becomes available,” Mehta said. “He’s familiar with new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg from their days with the Eagles. I know that Mornhinweg likes him, I know the Jets would pursue him if the Cardinals cut him. So that’s a name to keep an eye on. Short of that, when it all plays out, I think Sanchez will be the Week One starter.”
