First, Peter King writes an idea that most of us would probably just answer with a "yeah ... and?" except for probably the last three words.
I think when I see headlines about the Jets keeping an open mind on whether or not to trade Darrell Revis, I am heartened that they have not lost their minds. Then I think: They're just saying that. There's far too much smoke out there, and far too little whispering to sources off the record that Revis is going nowhere, for me to believe they aren't desperate to move him. Mistakenly, of course.Mistakenly? ?It comes down to pragmatism. ?Whether he's the most talented player the Jets have had on their team in a long time is besides the point. ?The owner is unwilling to meet his escalating contract demands and Revis doesn't like to play on a contract that he doesn't feel like values him properly. ?But if the Jets are so desperate to move him and there's so few teams to work with ... why are the Jets unwilling to take whatever the market has offered? ?The Eagles have bowed out, and the two teams (Falcons & Niners) that Team Revis floated have been shot down by the teams themselves.
