If Jets fans thought that the Darrelle Revis situation was as bad as it could get, they are sorely mistaken.  The only thing that could make this worse would be if the Giants called the Jets and inquired about the All-Pro cornerback and then dealt him to the team that shares the same stadium as them. Imagine that?  Revis going to the cross-town rival where he terrorizes receivers in the NFC for the next ten years, while toying with the Jets as if to say “you gave up on this?”  There is really not much that could be worse than that. It seems likely that Revis will be practicing with a different team next year but are the Giants a legitimate option? They don’t seem to be at this time but they really could be one of the best options for him. PHOTO COURTESY: RON ANTONELLI/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Because of this, the likelihood of this scenario taking place is very doubtful, but both teams should consider the good that could come from a blockbuster.  While the Giants could potentially help the Jets fill any of their holes on offense, landing Revis would give the Giants that lockdown corner that could be the final piece for Big Blue’s defense. If Revis were on the Giants, it would instantly make their defense better.  The future of Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora are up in the air, and the team will also need to address their linebackers in this year’s draft.  However, the Giants have needed help in the secondary for years and very rarely does the best cornerback in the NFL become available. Last year, the Giants ranked fifth in the NFL in pass yards allowed and gave up the most passing plays of 40 yards or more with 13.  They also didn’t have their patented pass rush this year and adding a lockdown man in the secondary would actually help that.  Having the quarterback hold the ball just a half second longer could be the difference between a sack and a QB hurry. Just ask the Jets, who have lacked a pass rush under Rex Ryan but have still consistently had a top defense in the league.  Revis is a huge reason for that success. The Giants also always seem to have injuries to their secondary that have prevented their unit from consistently playing together over the last few years.  Adding a player coming off a knee injury would not normally be something they would want to do but again, it isn’t everyday that the best cornerback in the NFL becomes available. The Jets may realize that the Giants actually present one of the better trading options for Revis.  It is still yet to be seen what the market will be for him as he is coming off an injury plagued season, but the Jets will have to find a way to get the value that Revis warrants even when he is at his lowest. The Giants have a plethora of talent at their offensive skill positions so the Jets would be wise to try to pry one away from them.  Anyone in the Giants receiving corps or backfield would be better than what the Jets put out there last year and there is a chance they could fill more than one of their holes with one trade. If this trade was an option, the Jets would presumably want one of their top guys such as Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz, but the Giants could counter with a Rueben Randle or Andre Brown and draft picks. The bottom-line is that the both teams could really benefit from this trade.  The Giants could get the missing piece to their championship puzzle and the Jets significantly improve their offense with one move. What will make this interesting is the fact that the two teams play in the same stadium.  It would be very hard for the Jets to let him walk to the other locker room unless they were really besting the Giants.  However, the Giants are a smart enough organization to avoid making a dumb trade just go get one guy they think can be a game-changer. It would be nice if the two could come to an agreement and the “big brother” Giants could help their “little brother” Jets.  A Revis trade now seems like a definite thing and the Giants would really benefit from trying to get a deal done with the Jets. Unfortunately, we shouldn’t hold our breath waiting for it.
