According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets’ owner Woody Johnson was asked if he can build his team around cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“No,” said Johnson. “I think you need to look at the entire 53 (man roster). To build a team, if you don’t look at the whole 53, you’re not going to make it. It starts with the quarterback. You got to get your quarterback going… and then you have to work on the 53. Everybody has to add. It’s not one player.”
“No team is just one player away maybe with the exception of the quarterback,” Johnson later added. “You can’t be distracted by one player. You have to look at everything.”
Johnson says they would be open to trading Revis if it can make their team better.
“If we can make our team better, we would be open to a conversation,” Johnson said. “But we’re not actively out there beating the bushes, because he’s on the team and we expect him to be on the team… We fully expect him to be up to the Revis Island that we’ve all known and loved.”
Johnson wouldn’t say whether Revis will be a Jets in 2013.
“It depends,” Johnson said. “We’d like to have him on the team. But we’re trying to always make the team better. He’s on the team right now.”
It sounds like to me the Jets are still waiting for the right offer to deal Revis.
