Sources close to New York Jets owner Woody Johnson have told ESPN that the Jets’ owner is open to trading arguably the best cornerback in the league this offseason.Speculation is because he only has 1 more year left on his contract. The Jets are $19 million over the cap, and Revis’ contract pays him $6 million next year. To make things worse for the Jets, Revis has a “non-franchise tag” clause written into his contract, so the Jets can’t let him play out his contract, and then slap the tag on him. The Jets believe that Revis will not re-sign with them, so if they don’t trade him this year for something, they’ll see him walk for nothing next year. Revis of course is rehabbing a torn ACL, so there will be concern for any team trading for him. Because of that injury concern, there is great uncertainty about what it will take to trade for him. My question is this… Should the Broncos trade for Revis? Personally, I think Revis is completely overrated. I think the only reason he is a “shutdown” corner is because the referees allow him to get away with holding and pass interference on virtually every play. Maybe it’s because he’s playing for an East Coast team (NY) that he gets away with it, but I have this funny feeling that if he signs with the Broncos, he’ll get flagged for all of those P.I. and holding penalties that he should be flagged for in New York. I don’t know about anyone else, but this has “Dale Carter” written all over it. We tried that already, and we watched it crash and burn. Add into Revis’ resume that he was allowed to act however he wanted and say whatever he wanted because of the completely laxed Rex Ryan discipline led team, and I think he would destroy the chemistry we have. PLUS, it means that Champ is out as a cornerback. Whether you think he should go to safety because of the Ravens exposing him or not, trading for Revis seals that deal. Would that mean that Champ goes in at safety and Moore is cut? Tell me what you think fellow Broncos fans. Should the Broncos trade for Revis? If so, what do you think the asking price would be, and how would the Broncos make it work? Sound off in the comments below.

Should the Patriots go after Darrelle Revis?

Could the Patriots make a move for Darrelle Revis? After reports that the New York Jets are open to trading super-stud cornerback Darrelle Revis surfaced Wednesday night, I began to think, “Is it fathomable to think Darrelle Revis could end up in a Patriots uniform come September?” Of course, it would be tough to see the Jets trade their best player to their hated in-division...

Report: Jets want a 1st and 2nd round pick in return for Revis

According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, the New York Jets are looking to get a first and second round pick in return for cornerback Darrelle Revis.  I would that is a very fair asking price if he didn’t tear his ACL this season.  But the fact that he has to come back from a serious knee injury, teams won’t be willing to give up that much to acquire Revis. We already know there...

Report: Jets Considering Trading Darrelle Revis

If you are a team interested in trading for Darrelle Revis, I am warning you in advance.  Just because Adrian Peterson isn’t human doesn’t mean everyone who comes back from ACL surgery gets better.  Then there is the possibility of an “Nnamdi” happening. Plus, you never know how a player will be in a new system, so teams need to do their due diligence. According to CBS...

Don’t Look For Revis In Green Bay

The Jets have reportedly placed All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis on the trading block The possibility of Darrell Revis joining the Packers makes for interesting reading in a slow news week, but the odds of the perennial Pro Bowl cornerback playing his home games in the state of Wisconsin next season are about the same as the odds of Jean-Claude Van Damme winning an Oscar for The...

Revis Is Worth More Than A First Round Pick

SI’s Peter King reports today that the Jets asking price for Darrelle Revis will be a first round pick, but it’s not enough to warrant getting rid of the game’s best cover corner. As long as the Revis legal team can somehow avoid a third contractual confrontation with Woody Johnson, we see no reason why new GM John Idzik should send Revis packing for the potential of some unknown...

New York Jets – A Few Comments On Revis Trade Rumors

The Internet almost exploded last night from this report from Jason La Canfora, which in a nutshell said the New York Jets would consider trading Darrelle Revis this off-season out of a fear of being unable to sign him long term. First off, the sourcing on this report likely comes from the recent GM interviews, considering candidate Ted Sundquist has leaked what Woody Johnson said...

To even attempt to fly, the Jets need to remove ‘Revis Island’ from the swamps in Jersey and deal Darrelle Revis

Much to the chagrin of embattled head coach Rex Ryan, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and recently hired general manager John Idzik will entertain offers to deal elite cornerback Darrelle Revis this offseason. The 27-year-old Revis, who the Jets selected out of the University of Pittsburgh with the 14th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, was indefinitely shelved after suffering...

Jets' GM: Revis trade talk 'premature'

New York Jets general manager John Idzik called any speculation that the team might trade star cornerback Darrelle Revis "premature."

Revis is scheduled...

Report: Jets might trade Revis

While the New York Jets' season circled the drain, much of the focus remained on the team's quarterback situation. Mark Sanchez played poorly, and Tim Tebow almost never played. There was a big hole on the other side of the ball, though, as the star cornerback Darrelle Revis missed 14 of 16 games due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. That hole might...

Jets’ owner growing weary of Rex Ryan?

According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson may not be as devoted to head coach Rex Ryan as much as people think. Ryan was painted as the owner’s pet two weeks ago at the previous one-week-after-the-fact news conference. In the season-ending presser, Johnson acted like 6-10 never happened. He professed his faith in Ryan, even saying the embattled...

Report: Tebow wasn’t forced on Jets’ owner

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson claims that he was forced to trade for quarterback Tim Tebow.  It now sounds like he wasn’t telling the truth. According to the New York Post, even though it was former general manager Mike Tannenbaum’s idea to acquire Tebow, Johnson owns the team and could have easily put his foot down and blocked the move. A league source with direct knowledge...
