New York, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Jets could be ready to trade
cornerback Darrelle Revis.
According to multiple reports, including CBSSports.com and the New York Daily
News, Jets owner Woody Johnson indicated that the team needs to address the
situation regarding Revis, who could become a free agent after the 2013
The CBS Sports report said Johnson is uncertain about working out an extension
with Revis and could seek to get maximum trade value for the All-Pro.
However, Revis is coming off major knee surgery after missing most of the 2012
campaign. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 3 against Miami after missing the
previous game because of a mild concussion he sustained in the opener.
Revis has had issues with the Jets' front office in the past. He had a lengthy
holdout in 2010 before signing a seven-year contract that can void after four
years if he doesn't skip training camp again.
The six-year veteran is considered one of the top defensive players in the
league. He has 19 career interceptions.
