At his first press conference as general manager of the New York Jets, John Idzik shot down the rumors that the team was exploring trading cornerback Darrelle Revis, calling those rumors "way premature."
"I haven't even had a chance to sit down and really vet through our roster with Rex and his staff and the personnel staff," Idzik said, "so I think it would be presumptuous to say anything on that."
It may be presumptuous to say they're looking for a trade, but it's not difficult to understand why the Jets would at least look into it. If the Jets conclude they can't keep him beyond 2013 (important to remember: the Jets can't franchise tag him after 2013), it's better to get something for him now than to get nothing for him later, when he walks in free agency.
In determining what the Jets might get for Revis, it depends on how he is recovering from ACL surgery, how other teams feel about his contractual situation and his value to those teams.
