Revis ‘Speechless’ After Jets Trade Talks?!
“I’m speechless by far but more importantly I feel more upset for the jet nation for having to go through this!!!” Revis wrote on Thursday afternoon after the team had intoduced new GM John Idzik at Florham Park. Later adding, “I guess we’ll see how this plays out.”
“I don’t know where it came from… I would never say anything about contracts,” Jets owner Woody Johnson said.
“I don’t think you can say definitively,” said Johnson, who noted that he had met with Revis recently and said he was recovering nicely. – nypost
It appears that the Jets may have been trying to trade away their best player, star cornerback Darrelle Revis? Revis was ‘shocked’ when he heard about these trade talks! Jets’ owner Woody Johnson said he was not in position to make decisions like that, but did not rule any future trades following a 6-10 season! The source of confusion probably was created by the Jets lack of salary cap room and flat out money! Revis is on the final year of his deal, and stood off twice in contract negotiations previously! Ironcially, there are two teams that are interested in the star cornerback! Check out Revis’s reaction and the owners comments above!
