Squeezing John IdzikApril 19th, 2013
Joe has banged the drum repeatedly to proclaim Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik should hold Jets general manager John Idzik hostage to make it less likely Dominik will get raked over the coals for a ransom in return for Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Dominik, in Joe’s eyes, has all the leverage in the world, which only strengthens by the day. So Joe is glad to see others jumping on the bandwagon.
Take Woody Cummings of The Tampa Tribune. He Twittered out yesterday Dominik should play very hard to get for the next week or so.
@RCummingsTBO: If I’m Bucs GM Mark Dominik I’m keeping my 2013 13th pick, spending it on what I want or need most and forcing the Jets to play by my rules
Exactly! The Jets need to trade Revis more than the Bucs need Revis. There is only one team out there willing to tackle Revis’ salary and that is the Bucs.
Since the Bucs are the lone suitor, Dominik gets to set the market for Revis, not Idzik.
Yes, Joe will write this again: Every day Dominik waits, the vice on Idzik’s private parts gets tighter.
