“It was my decision,” Tannenbaum said. “…We felt that it was going to be another club in the bag to help us on offense. That was our thinking when we made the decision.”
If Revis decides after next year that he wants another big payday, then the Jets will be left with no Revis and no compensation were he to depart via free agency.
John Idzik declared his first order of business is to review the Jets’ entire roster and decide who stays, who goes and who they need to come in and be part of the solution.
“This was, for an opening press conference, somewhere between awful and disappointing,” Francesa said. “It was not (a) disaster, but it was close. It was anything but forceful … Nothing in anything you heard would make anybody confident.”
The symbolism is always endless around the Jets. And trading Darrelle Revis could raise more than doubts. It could fly a white flag for years.

Tim Tebow was two wins from the Super Bowl a year ago. Now, he’s pretty much a player without a team — likely to be released by the Jets after one frustrating season.
As teams around the NFL fill their vacancies, the Jets’ search for a new general manager drags on. But perhaps not for too much longer.
