Revis Island just got a little lonelier if you believe the whispers coming out of the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis about Darrelle Revis — the New York Jets best player. The New York Daily News is reporting that the Jets contingent — including head coach Rex Ryan, new general manager John Idzik and team owner Woody Johnson — didn't meet or contact Revis' representatives during the combine, fueling speculation that Johnson just doesn't want to pay the Pro Bowl cornerback as the team enters a rebuilding phase in 2013. During a week when you think Revis' reps and at least one member of the Jets brass would have swapped stories — they didn't even shake hands. Manish Mehta wrote: One NFC executive told The News that there is a sentiment around the league that Johnson not only isn’t interested in making Revis the highest-paid defensive player in the league, which would mean a salary of around $16 million per year, but that the owner doesn’t want to sign the cornerback to a lucrative long-term deal at all given the dire state of the franchise. The cap-strapped Jets do not figure to be in the playoff conversation entering the 2013 season. They aren’t likely to make a splash when free agency opens next month either, as they quietly try to rebuild with younger, cheaper players. The Jets Big 3 did meet with representatives of Santonio Holmes, Dustin Keller, Jeff Cumberland, Austin Howard, Shonn Greene and LaRon Landry during the week but elected not to meet with Revis' guys. The snub comes one month after reports surfaced that the Jets were shopping Revis — who is  a free agent at the end of the 2013 season — around and might even trade him. Revis' agent, Neil Schwartz confirmed that he was in Indy for the week but would not say if he had talked with the Jets. Idzik wouldn't reveal whether or not he had scheduled a meeting with Revis' people about the cornerback's future with the Jets. The organization’s handling of the Revis situation is peculiar especially after only three years ago — when the Jets reworked his contract — they said they wanted Revis to be a "Jet for Life." A fruit fly's life maybe.
