There have been rumors that the New York Jets will look to trade their best player, cornerback Darrelle Revis, this offseason. While nothing is determined at this point, it appears to Gary Myers of The New York Daily News that talks are heading in that direction, and he hears from an NFL source that it’s likely to get “very ugly” in New York.
“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 Jets asking price for Revis could be reduced due to the fact that he’s coming off of a significant knee injury. However, the source Myers spoke with believes the cornerback will make a full recovery, meaning New York would get fleeced if they agree to take less for the All-Pro.
If the Jets trade Revis before he gets back on the field and proves his health, the source expects them to get the equivalent of 75 cents on the dollar for him. He believes at this point the team would get a first- and third-round draft pick for Revis, while they could probably get two first-round picks if he was healthy.
