If the Jets are going to trade Darrelle Revis, Revis’ people want it to happen as soon as possible.
With the free agency period set to begin this week, ESPN New York reports that Revis’ camp is concerned that all the good cornerbacks will be scooped up quickly and a team in need of a corner won’t be interesting in acquiring Revis if they’re bringing in a standout at the position like Sean Smith or Aqib Talib.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that there are rumors that Eagles GM Howie Roseman is "crunching numbers" and "putting together an offer" to acquire Revis. The Eagles will be losing star corners Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason.
Meanwhile, the Jets will owe Revis a $1 million roster bonus if he’s on the roster Saturday. That figure will not be incentive for the Jets to hasten the process to decide Revis’ future, though, a league source told ESPN. Revis is far too important that a mere $1 million would change his fate, even if it will count against the salary cap.
The Jets could drag this situation out and hope the cornerback market is dried up by summer. Then they could hope to re-sign Revis to a deal they’d be more comfortable with. However, if all the teams fill their CB needs by then, there won’t be many suitors if the Jets try to trade Revis.
Sources told The Post’s Steve Serby last week that Revis would prefer to remain with the Jets. Revis said recently that it would be “awesome” to play for the 49ers, but a source said that slip of the tongue doesn’t mean Revis wants out of New York.
“He has never asked to be traded,” the source said.
