How much would you sell an island for? That is what Jets general manager John Idzik must decide as the team and the Buccaneers continue to discuss a trade for Jets superstar Darrelle Revis, a.k.a Revis Island. According to league sources, Idzik has not been clear with what he wants exactly in return for Revis. The Post reported earlier this week that Tampa Bay was losing patience with the Jets as negotiations have stalled. Sports Ilustrated reported yesterday the Buccaneers may be willing to send their first- and second-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft to the Jets in exchange for Revis, but the Jets would like Tampa’s first-round pick in next month’s draft. But according to a source, Idzik has not even been clear if including a package with the No. 13 pick next month is enough to get a deal done. Negotiations between the two sides did not advance at this week’s league meetings in Arizona, according to a source. SI reported the Jets want this year’s first-round pick (No. 13) from the Buccaneers as well as a pick in next years’ draft. Jets owner Woody Johnson denied actively shopping Revis this week, but it is clear Johnson has made a decision that he can’t afford to keep Revis long-term. That leaves Idzik with trying to deal Revis before he becomes a free agent next year.
