Jets GM remains mum on Revis trade rumours

  • Print

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- John Idzik acknowledged that he and Darrelle Revis recently had "a nice talk." Other than that, the new New York Jets general manager divulged very little, particularly about the swirling trade rumours involving the star cornerback.

"We won't discuss any supposed talks or true talks or club-to-club talks or player-to-club talks," Idzik said Wednesday during the team's predraft news conference.

Revis is entering the last season of his four-year contract signed in 2010, but is looking for a big payday that would make him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the league. A clause in that deal prevents the Jets from using the franchise or transition tag on him next year, so if he remains unsigned, he would become a free agent in 2014.

As the Jets weigh whether to try to sign him to a contract extension, lose him to free agency next off-season or deal him for high draft picks, Revis has been the subject of rampant trade rumours, with Tampa Bay appearing to be the most likely suitor.

Revis reported to the team's facility Monday for the first day of the Jets' voluntary off-season conditioning program, and has met with Idzik since.

"I've spoken to Darrelle, and we've had a nice talk," Idzik said. "In general, we like to keep these kinds of things among ourselves. What has been nice is that with the opening of our off-season program, we're in a stage where we can finally see our players."
