Like the rest of us, Darrelle Revis has caught wind of the reports that the New York Jets are exploring the possibility of trading him this offseason. On Thursday afternoon, the three-time All-Pro took to Twitter to share a brief thought about the rumors: I’m speechless by far but more importantly I feel more upset for the jet nation for having to go through this!!! — Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) January 24, 2013 Revis has had his share of ups and downs with regard to his contract since the Jets drafted him in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He has already held out once, and he flirted with the idea of doing it again prior to the 2012 season. If the Jets feels as though they need more draft picks and need to improve their team in other areas in order to contend, Revis is the one player that would yield the biggest return. What’s also interesting to note is that Jets owner Woody Johnson and general manager John Idzik, who was introduced to the New York media on Thursday, were given a chance to deny the rumors. Neither one took advantage of the opportunity. “I don’t know where that came from,” Johnsons said of the report, without clarifying if it was true or not. Idzik gave a similar response when asked about Revis. “I think it’s way premature to say anything specific,” he said. “I think it would be presumptuous to say anything on that.” Idzik gave essentially the same answer when asked about any other potential roster moves regarding players like Mark Sanchez or Tebow Tebow. The “sources” that gave the information about the Jets wanting to trade Revis are in all likelihood former GM candidates who didn’t get the job, so there’s no guarantee their information is good. That being said, it wouldn’t exactly be shocking if New York traded its star corner should a good offer come along.
