The unimaginable is on the verge of happening for the Jets.  On Wednesday, it was reported that the Jets will explore trade options for Darrelle Revis.  The All-Pro cornerback is coming off an injury plagued season that forced him to miss 14 games in 2012 and after next season, the Jets will have a hard time signing him to another contract. The thought of Revis calling another city home is scary and is extremely unfortunate for the Jets who will be looking to shop the best cornerback in the NFL when he is at his lowest value.  It might be the only option they have as they cannot afford to let him walk in free agency and get nothing in return. It’s a very similar situation that many Jets fans saw happen with their favorite baseball team when the Mets had to decide what to do with shortstop Jose Reyes.  But that’s a discussion for another day. Darrelle Revis is arguably the best cornerback in the NFL but after an injury plagued season, his value is at an all-time low, making a trade tricky. PHOTO COURTESY: BILL KOSTROUN/ASSOCIATED PRESS The handling of this Revis situation will be new general manager John Idzik’s first challenge and possibly his most important.  If this is not handled properly it can make an already bad situation worse and will be something that Jets fans will never forgive him for. After the Mike Tannenbaum era, the fan base has grown impatient with incompetence from the front office.  A bad first impression will kill Idzik’s popularity quick. It will be a tough situation for Idzik because if he settles for anything less than a first round pick, he will be making a huge mistake.  It could be argued that Revis would be worth more than a first round pick but after missing nearly an entire year due to injuries; his market could be very small. The handling of this situation does not just fall on Idzik’s shoulders but also those of owner Woody Johnson.  This team cannot have a repeat of the Tim Tebow trade last year.  The circus that surrounded Tebow was because no one knows whether Johnson wanted him or Tebow was forced on the Jets owner by former GM Tannenbaum. Either way, there was an obvious disagreement about Tebow. Former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist recently said that the Jets “wanted an exit strategy” from Tebow after his interview for the vacant Jets general manager position. Mishandling of Revis would have the same affect on the Jets and they can’t have another year where they are the laughing stock of the entire league.  Idzik can help this by making a smart decision regarding Revis’ future with the team. If he isn’t smart with this situation however, he will forever be remembered as the guy who set this franchise back even farther. So a word of advice for Mr. Idzik:  Take your time when making this decision, whatever it is.  If you feel the need to trade him, make sure you get the right deal for him.  The only thing at stake is your legacy as the Jets general manager.  No pressure, right?
