From NESN:

After the tornado of disaster that was the New York Jets’ season, some series changes are expected in East Rutherford.

The team has already hired a new general manager in Jeff Idzik, and one of the new head man’s first actions may be dealing the team’s top defensive asset, cornerback Darrelle Revis.

CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that Jets owner Woody Johnson doubts the team’s ability to re-sign Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, and will explore trade options for the sixth-year pro to avoid losing him to free agency.

Contract talks have been rocky between Revis and Jets ownership in the past, with the defensive back engaging in a high-profile holdout in 2010 that cost him the first three weeks of the season.

Acquiring the nickname “Revis Island,” the former first-round draft pick was among the NFL’s best defensive players from 2008 to 2011, earning Pro Bowl nods all four seasons. His 2012 campaign was nearly nonexistent, however, as Revis played just two games before tearing his ACL and being placed on injured reserve.

Despite the injury, Johnson reportedly believes there are several teams with extra cap space open to bringing in Revis, who is slated to make $6 million this season.
