Jets May Have A Hard Time Securing “Fair Value” For CB Darrelle Revis

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, the Jets may have a hard time securing “fair value” for DB Darrelle Revis if they do fielding trade offers for him this offseason. 

GM John Idzik and HC Rex Ryan both downplayed the idea that Revis was on the trading block, but neither one of them denied that he could be available.

Hubbuch adds that the salary cap could be the biggest obstacle in any trade scenario, as NFL teams will have to lockup Revis to a long-term extension and still fit that into their current cap situation.

Revis is clearly an amazing talent, but it’s hard to part with a package of high draft picks and be forced to commit big money to a guy who now has plenty of leverage given that they would have already parted with draft picks for him.

I’m not sure if we’ll see a ton of teams going out and doing a whole lot right away (via free agency or trade),” Seahawks GM John Schneider said. “I know (Revis is) a great player, but I don’t know how that would work.

Add in the fact that Revis suffered a torn ACL in 2012 and it’s hard to imagine the securing “fair value” for one of the game’s best defensive backs.

    i dont think its going to as hard as you may think… yes he’s coming of a knee injury and hes going to want QB dollars .. but there a few teams thats would give up a few draft picks and maybe players to get the one of the best players in the game… lets think about this what did the redskins give up to move up to draft RG3 so u telling me the jets couldn’t pull of similar move?
