New York Jets Making A Statement “Avoiding” Darrelle Revis
As if the Darrelle Revis saga couldn’t get worse, it did. A report came out today that the New York Jets “camp”, consisting of general manager John Idzik, head coach Rex Ryan, and owner Woody Johnson, have not met with representatives of Revis yet. However, they have met representatives of Santonio Holmes, LaRon Landry, as well as four other players, according to sources.
The news is not surprising, as it has seemed as if the Jets are almost “avoiding” Revis and his aspirations of restructuring his contract. Revis did not play much of the season last year due to injury, yet wants to become the highest paid corner in the league. Trade talks have surfaced with Revis, but nothing has really been proven true, yet.
Antonio Cromartie played well in the absence of Revis, proving that he is good enough to be the number one corner. Bringing in another corner to compliment Cromartie shouldn’t be too hard, especially if they are considering drafting Tyrann Mathieu. Revis has continued to ask for more and more money every few years since he has been with the team, and it is nothing but a distraction during the off-season.
The fact that the Jets have not yet met with representatives of Revis gives every indication that they are growing tired of the all-pro corner. There is no telling on if they will release him, trade him, or even keep him and restructure is contract, but one thing is for sure, the Jets are making a statement.
