A few hours after Darrelle Revis said he was ''speechless'' about rampant trade talk, new Jets general manager John Idzik reached out to the star cornerback Thursday to ask to ''give us a chance'' to evaluate the entire roster.
Idzik told NBC's Pro Football Talk on Friday that Revis ''reacted well'' to the phone call, which came after the GM, owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan were non-committal about the cornerback's future with the team. Revis expressed his frustration on Twitter, prompting the call from Idzik, introduced as the replacement for the fired Mike Tannenbaum hours earlier.
''We haven't taken that first step, and that's what I relayed to Darrelle,'' Idzik told Pro Football Talk.
Revis, recovering from a knee injury, is expected to draw plenty of trade interest.
