Darrelle Revis is moving closer to getting back on the football field. Whether that’s with the New York Jets next season remains to be seen.
Idzik can’t anger Revis, the Niners or any other potential trade partners. He must handle this delicate trade scenario with savvy and sophistication to get the most out of the deal. A difficult job is at hand, and Idzik must show he is up to it.
The NFC West powers are each a player away from truly becoming the team to beat in the conference. All they have to do is call John Idzik, inquire about one Darrelle Revis and let the Jets’ GM do the rest.
The 49ers are one of “a handful of teams” that have talked about making a push for Darrelle Revis, even if he’s just a one-season rental, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Is it a coincidence that Robert Kraft has crafted an empire while Woody “I can’t get enough Tim Tebow” Johnson’s franchise has floundered for decades?
John Idzik was thought to be acting at the behest of owner Woody Johnson, with coach Rex Ryan and basically everyone else “out of the loop,” the Daily News reported.
The Jets praised cornerback Darrelle Revis from the scouting combine late last week. But team brass never met with the irked All-Pro’s representatives in Indy, according to the Daily News.
At the NFL’s annual scouting combine on Thursday, new general manager John Idzik spent the first eight minutes of his news conference addressing Revis questions. He said that nothing has changed and the Jets still want him.
One of the beauties of football, where on-field narcissism is suppressed by pads, helmets, flags and facemasks, is the ancient axiom that no player is above the team. Revis is quickly forgetting.
“(Revis) came off disrespectful,” Sherman said. “Words need to be said, because apparently he’s just going to disrespect my game. I don’t know exactly what he’s done stats-wise to earn the right to talk down to people.”
The 2012 First Team All-Pro has been calling himself the best cornerback in the league following his successful 2012 campaign, and Darrelle Revis decided to call him out on Twitter on Wednesday.
John Idzik can’t trade the former first-round pick until March 12, but according to a report he will attempt to shop him to other teams at the 2013 NFL Combine this week.
It boils down to this: this is none of Revis’ concern. Rehab, get ready to play. That’s his job. The contract? That’s his agent’s job. Trades? That’s up to the GM.
Darrelle Revis is a very special talent. No one will ever dispute that. But this idea that he deserves special treatment during a time of organizational chaos shows he’s not quite the team guy he wants you to believe he is.
Darrelle Revis says he’s told the Jets “numerous times” that he wants to stay in New York. But there’s persistent speculation the team will attempt to trade the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback this offseason.
