The New York Jets have tried to trade cornerback Darrelle Revis for the past two months and one NFL source told Gary Myers of the New York Daily News that this thing could get very ugly.
“I think it’s going to get ugly, very ugly,” one NFL source said. “You can’t trade your best player. You do everything to keep him. It’s going to get ugly with the player and the agent. I don’t know how you get around it. It’s very difficult.”
The source said he believes Revis will make a full recovery from his ACL injury because, “ACLs aren’t what they used to be, it’s not a big deal anymore,” but if the Jets were to trade Revis before he gets back on the field “they will get 75 cents on the dollar. If he was not hurt, I would say you would be looking at getting two No. 1s. Now it’s more like a No. 1 and a No. 3. And I’d want a high No. 1.”
It seems like the Jets have no idea how to handle a tough situation. The Tim Tebow experiment was a flop and now they have no idea what to do with one of the best players their franchise has ever had.
I agree with Myers’ source, this thing is going to get ugly. I also believe it’s going get comical because of how poorly the Jets handle their business.
