Keyshawn Johnson has made a nice transition from former NFL player to quality NFL analyst, so when he speaks, he’s usually knowledgeable about the situation.
Johnson was speaking to Newsday about the franchise that drafted him, and said he would advice the New York Jets to trade Darrelle Revis right now, and get some value back in return.
“I think it’s a smart move if they do move him and get value,” the former Jets receiver said. “He’s not going to win any games for you. He’s a defensive back who will shut down the [opponents'] top receiver, but the ball is not in his hands. The Jets need more than a top corner. They need some pieces. If he gives them the value to get those pieces, then move him.”
Johnson also said that the Jets have to many holes at other more important positions, particularly quarterback, and won’t be a contender this season, so why not get something for your best player, who is set to be a free agent at season’s end.
“It’s not that the Jets don’t want him,” said Johnson, now an ESPNanalyst. “It’s the right thing to do to build the team. He’s the top corner. He’s the guy. But [the Jets] need a quarterback, running back, wide receivers, other defensive backs. [A trade] gives them that opportunity to fill some of those holes. If they keep Revis, what else do they have? Not much. They’re in a division against the Patriots, and other teams in the AFC are improving.”
I agree with Johnson completely. Mike Tannenbaum left the Jets in salary cap hell, and it will take a couple of season of mediocrity to get it under the control.
If you can get two #1′s for Revis, or at least a #1st and #2nd round pick, I would do it in a heartbeat.

NO MAN IS AN ISLAND
The war of words between the two elite NFL cornerbacks doesn't appear to be slowing down at all, with the latest barb coming from the outspoken Seattle defender.
An NFL source predicted to the New York Daily News that the New York Jets’ standoff with elite cornerback Darrelle Revis will get “very ugly.” The 27-year-old Revis, who the Jets selected out of the University of Pittsburgh with the 14th overall choice in the 2007 draft, was indefinitely shelved after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament last September against the Dolphins...

The New York Jets are in an awfully sticky situation with star cornerback Darrelle Revis. When healthy, Revis is still the most dominant player at his position in the NFL, and he deserves to get compensated as such. But the Jets don’t seem to be willing or able to do that, and so talks...

After the 49ers, Tampa...

Revis to the Patriots is not funny

Rants- Darrelle Revis -for whinning that the Jets management didn’t call him to tell him he isn’t getting traded. Seriously Darrelle? You are quick to call it a business when you are looking to get paid, how come you don’t think it’s a business when the team is looking to improve and it’s possible that [...]
It’s not a question of if the Patriots would want Darrelle Revis in a New England uniform. It’s a question of how, and when.
No team would turn down the talent of Revis, one of the best cornerbacks in the league and a player who has caused serious trouble for the Pats in recent years. And no one in New England would feel bad if the Jets couldn’t afford to keep Revis, and he...

“It’d be fun either way, there’s always a rivalry there,” Sherman told 710 ESPN in...
