If the GM digs up Vernon Gholston instead of Joe Namath in the draft, he’ll be pilloried, and probably unemployed before his contract expires.
Weeks of speculation about the star cornerback’s future ended Sunday when the Jets traded the three-time All-Pro to the Bucs in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this week’s NFL draft and another selection next year.
The speculation can soon be put to rest. Darrelle Revis and the Jets appear on the verge of parting ways.
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 rumors involving the star cornerback.
The quarterback said Friday he’d show up with a “great attitude” despite reports that New York will eventually pull the plug on Tebow Time.
Revis has started to run again as he rehabilitates from a torn knee ligament while his future with the Jets remains uncertain.
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
Unlike Darrelle Revis, Tim Tebow is planning to “voluntarily” — in the true sense of the word — attend the workouts in Florham Park, N.J., beginning on April 15, according to multiple reports.
Revis needs to participate in the Jets’ voluntary workouts beginning next week to collect $3 million in bonuses he’s scheduled to earn. And he’s “not happy about it,” according to the Post.
Darrelle Revis must report to the Jets’ voluntary workouts to earn a $3 million bonus.
The Jets need to deal Revis now. Not next year, not next month, not next week. Don’t wait for the perfect offer, because there isn’t one.
The Bucs are the Jets’ only serious trade partner — and they’re losing patience, the New York Post reported.
So what’s the deal with Revis? Is he on the trading block or not?
Rex Ryan is taking control of his defense once again. He’ll “make the calls” on the field this season and is planning to be more hands-on during defensive meetings.
It seems the Jets might have to scratch a serious suitor off the board if the Darrelle Revis saga drags on.
