Report: Jets Don’t Know What They Want

March 22nd, 2013

Well, if this latest from the New York Post is accurate, then it’s no wonder Darrelle Revis is still employed by the Jets.

Per Post reporter Brian Costello this morning, the Jets have yet to decide what they want in a trade for their star cornerback.

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.

Jimminy Christmas! Somebody needs to inform the bungling Jets they can’t make a deal without a price tag.

Joe suspects the translation of this is the Bucs put an offer on the table for Revis and the Jets rejected it without lobbing back a counter offer.

    I have to assume that this Idzik guy isn’t calling the shots in this scenario.

    Figures this is what happens when you deal with the Jets!

  3. Paul Strutzenberg Says:

    it was just reported on ESPN that Bucs are willing to give up 1st and 2nd round picks NEXT year but is that too much!? and should the Jets be looking for pics this year for Revis? I really think they should and Im a bucs fan but not really a fan of Revis coming to Tampa

  4. Architek Says:

    We have stood by and waited for this elite player, in the process missed out on solid CBs. Go sign a good veteran and draft a couple. Please do not over pay for this guy and let the Jets be stupid as they always are with making deals.

    We have the leverage because Revis is leaving anyway. Why not be smart and get a next year pick for a CB coming off an ACL.

  5. bucfanjeff Says:

    And this is why the Jets still suck. They had a HORRIBLE GM and they now have a confused GM. Good grief.

    It’s pretty simple, the Bucs are probably the only ones that can do the deal, so if they’re going to unload him – hammer out a deal.

    Geeze the Jets are like 2 monkies f***ing a football. Screw them sign Grimes and one or 2 of the other old timers out there with a little bit left in the tank and groom a couple of the deep draft in corners to start next year or in the future. Save the money and sign Revis next year for Free. What about getting an O-Tackle and some D-Line help ?? That would be nice too. Bottom line is Dominik and Schiano are shieting a golden brick because they may not be around in 2014 if the BUCS don’t get to the playoffs.

    If idiot Wright wouldn’t have gotten popped for PEDs we may have crept into the playoffs to keep the dogs off. That is probably why they are holding onto to him and will release right before (pun intended) they have to pay him and then he will get peanuts. F’er deserves it now Dominik and Schiano are feeling the heat a little more than they should.

    Move on from this ridiculous circus of a organization and sign some serviceable free agents and draft 1 or 2. Let them come to us if they are seriously wanting to get something for him.

  8. Ruggyup Says:

    As frustrating and irritating as the Bucs are I simply cannot imagine being a Jets fan/season ticket holder. The Jets are slick smarmy morons.

  9. 1976Buc Says:

    Hoping we have moved on!

  10. Dave Says:

    Keep pursuin Revis but for G*D’s sake go sign Grimes or someone else in the meantime. Do not count on the NYJ

  11. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    It is almost like the Jets know we are desperate for Revis, and are stalling for even more concessions!
    Last I heard, the price on the table was a first and a second round pick, next year.

  12. 4everBucsFan Says:

    It amazes me how a club can demand a King’s ransom for a damaged player they will lose to FA next year anyway. The Bucs should walk away from this and then next year wine and dine Revis at our own leisure, instead of costing us so many needed draft picks. If Revis was at the beginning stages of a new contract, it might be worth all this BS, but for them to play hardball, while they have no actual leverage, makes no sense at all.

  13. Oldguy Says:

    Totally agree with 4ever. Despite their off-season success last year, it looks to me like they are blowing their chances big-time this year. I should wait until after the draft to draw conclusions but I can’t see how this long drawn out trade business for Revis can have a happy ending for the Bucs. Too many other good options have been lost. Would like to be proven wrong.

    J-E-T-S ! aka – dumbasses !

  15. Aldo Says:

    ok im done with this revis saga, look, we know he is a helluva CB but dont forget the fact about the last two seasons he had injuries (Hamstring and ACL) so is not just talk about the last one, the man is kinda injury prone.

    second, Revis respond to a coaching staff and turn into an elite pro at CB but is not like we cant do that too, look at sherman in seattle, nanmdi was picked in the final of the first round and was elite for the raiders so much time……

    if we are gonna be aggressive, what about a trade for dee millner… maybe a move ala falcons (Julio Jones) and try to covet another CB in early rounds.

    and i bring millner name because Detroit has a new need after the retirement of their starting LT, and maybe they need to make a move to protect injury prone stafford.

    in a realistic scenario, im all in about picking two quality CBs, Desmond Trufant and Xavier Rhodes, we can make maneuvers like the last year and with a good coaching we can develop them into a fearsome secondary along with Goldson and Barron!!!

    i know right now all this looks wrong and we have so many doubts about the team but like i said many times before, we need to trust Schiano and Dominik, lets see what happens

  16. lightningbuc Says:

    Yeah, let’s all laugh at the ineptness of the Jets front office, because the Bucs is soooooo great! If memory serves me correctly, the Jets have been to the playoffs a lot more recently than the Bucs.

  17. CanadianTBfan Says:

    This is getting to a point of being ridiculous. As much as I want to see Revis Island in TB a 1st & 2nd is to steep when you can get him next year and still hold those picks. He’s obviously money motivated so throw the 12-15mill at him when he’s an UFA.

  18. lurker Says:

    …and the bucs have won a superbowl more recently than the jets…

    i swear, the crap you people come up with to try and prove a point is ridonkulous!

  19. Bucs or gtfo Says:

    So what if the Jets have been to the playoffs recently??? Look at them now!!

  20. Buc Fan #238 Says:

    Looks to me like the Bucs are the ones who got played.

    While the Jets were fishing, the Bucs took the bait, got reeled in and then tossed back.

    What a wasted opportunity by letting the CB market dry up.

  21. Tom Says:

    The irony is that all the Bucs fans are calling out the Jets GM for being stupid. Ummm…the Jets have a very good corner under contract and can do with him what they like. The BUCS on the other hand chose to get in to trade dialogue and have done nothing about addressing the position outside of the failed trade attempt. So who has the stupid GM in this scenario?

  22. BirdDogger Says:

    The Bucs could certainly use a healthy Revis. But, to me it’s too much risk and resources spent on one player. No one will know for sure if his knee will be be completely healed untill he’s going full speed in game. The knee may ultimately keep him from being the same player. Then there’s the issue of giving up premium draft picks and a huge contract to boot. If the earlier speculation is true – regarding the decision to let Bennett go because of possible concerns over nagging injuries – Why would Dominik be willing to invest this much in a player coming off of a serious knee injury?

  23. SilenceTheCritics Says:


    You have no clue what the plan actually is that Dom and Schiano have in place. Sure from the outside looking in, it looks bad… but you have no clue what is really going on… therefore “who has the stupid GM” can not be answered by you or anyone else.

  24. OAR Says:

    Somewhere, wedged between the footfetishes and the ‘gut’ feelings, the NY JESTS and thier King Ralph, know exactly what they’re doing!

  25. Ruggyup Says:

    If Bucs do this deal written by Peter King then it follows that after spring drills Freeman will get a contract bigger than Flacco’s:
    According to a report from Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, though, the Buccaneers have upped the ante to include both their first and second-round picks in 2014 and to also pay Revis roughly $15 million per season in an extension. This, despite not knowing if the corner is fully healthy.

  26. HawaiiBucsFan Says:

    Ok Joe, humor me here. What if we traded our 1st and 2nd picks for 2014, get Revis. awesome, draft a 2nd corner in the draft like Xavier Rhodes or Jonathan Banks. Great! now we’re making some progress. then we resign Revis to his fat new contract and everything’s looking up, we go into the 2013 season with all the anticipation in the world, only to finally be assured Josh Freeman is not our franchise QB. I’m not riding the train to run freeman out of Tampa and I’m certainly not implying he WON’T finally get his act together and prove hes the QB we’ve all seen he CAN be. I’m just saying “what if?” So Free has a terrible season and there is no excuse like this year of a weak secondary that did as much to prevent a Playoff berth as he himself. Now what do we do? There’s no way we get our next “franchise” QB out of the 3rd round of the 2014 draft. and any guy we’re gonna get on the market (no idea who will even be available next year) is still gonna command a lot of money if we’re obviously trying to bring him in to be a starter. and with tons of money already invested in Revis, that’s gonna really hurt our chances of fielding a competitive team. worst case scenario we have to just grit our teeth and bare a mediocre QB leading our team through ’14 season just so we can get to that next franchise hopeful QB in 2015! No way. I just don’t see how we can jeopardize our team’s future with the questions we still have about Freeman. i think if we have to trade for Revis, which I’m still not 100% convinced we do, its gotta be our 1st and mid round pick THIS year. and just get whatever we can still salvage out of this years draft. Dominik has proven his ability to pick quality talent out of the mid-later rounds of the draft

  27. lurker Says:

    perhaps dominick knows who might be available as a free agent next year…

    also, maybe all this trade negotiation is to just give up (concede) this year’s first round draft pick. a pick this year is more valuable, as of now.
