Originally written March 19, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, general manager John Idzik and the Jets aren’t in any rush to trade cornerback Darrelle Revis. The word I’m getting from the NFL meetings in Phoenix is that Jets GM John Idzik is in no rush to make a trade and that he’s willing to let it play out until after the draft. Why wait? The Jets are on a long-term rebuilding plan, and Idzik apparently isn’t married to the idea of having immediate draft-pick compensation — if he decides to move his best player, which is what many expect to happen. He’s telling people he’d be content to wait for 2014 compensation, when he could use an extra No. 1 pick (and maybe other picks) to maneuver for a quarterback. Of course, if the Bucs make him an offer he can’t refuse, Idzik would pull the trigger now. The sense, though, is that he’ll let it play out, waiting for Revis’ surgically repaired knee to heal and perhaps hoping another team enters the fray to create a bidding war. The risk is that the Bucs will bow out and no other serious suitors will step up. Broncos exec John Elway said Tuesday he has no interest in trading for Revis, and the 49ers reportedly feel the same way — two teams linked to a potential trade. Right now, it’s all about the Bucs. Now, this twist: There are rumblings the Bucs are frustrated by the slow-moving Jets and losing interest, and that they’re prepared to shift their focus to free-agent CB Brent Grimes. I’m still having a hard time understanding why the Jets would want to trade Revis in the first place.  He wants to play for them and trading him won’t help them get back to the playoffs any quicker.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
