The Jets have reportedly placed All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis on the trading block The possibility of Darrell Revis joining the Packers makes for interesting reading in a slow news week, but the odds of the perennial Pro Bowl cornerback playing his home games in the state of Wisconsin next season are about the same as the odds of Jean-Claude Van Damme winning an Oscar for The Expendables 2. Here’s part of what CBS Sports’ NFL Insider Mike Freeman wrote on Friday: “Sources say one of the teams highly interested is the New England Patriots, but not even the Jets, who have made some screwy decisions over the years, would trade Revis to the division-rival Patriots and, in the process, hand them a Super Bowl. Other teams highly interested, I’m told, are Denver, San Francisco, Buffalo (not happening — division rival), and even Seattle, which already has some of the best defensive backs in the game. One team also constantly mentioned by league sources is Green Bay, though the Packers, possessors of one of the best front offices in all of sports, usually don’t give up high-round picks.” First of all, I don’t expect Revis to be traded. Because the 27-year-old is coming off ACL surgery and is going into the last season of his contract (2014 is a voidable year), the Jets wouldn’t get full value for their best player. And even if new general manager John Idzik does decide to make a deal (he won’t), the Packers under the leadership of Ted Thompson would appear to be the one team that wouldn’t be interested. Thompson would rather chew off one of his own limbs than give up a high draft pick for another team’s player and then have to fork over $60 million just to keep him around past 2013. Plus, cornerback is the one position on defense where the Packers are actually better off than most teams. Sam Shields, Casey Hayward and Tramon Williams aren’t in Revis’ class, but they’re as good a trio as you’ll find in the NFL. The Packers didn’t give up 45 points and over 500 yards to the 49ers in the divisional round of the playoffs because they couldn’t cover in the secondary. The defense gave up 45 points and over 500 yards because the linemen and linebackers were soft at the point of attack and/or undisciplined in their assignments. As great as Revis is, he wouldn’t have made much of a difference two weeks ago in San Francisco.
