Darrelle Revis wasn't contributing to the New York Jets' 6-10 2012 season, but apparently he and the team are close to parting ways.
According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Jets owner Woody Johnson is about to start exploring trade possibilities for one of the league's most exciting cornerbacks.
Here's an excerpt from the piece:
The Jets are very much in transition mode, they have cap issues moving forward and are trying to embark on a rebuilding process after firing former long-time general manager Mike Tannenbaum. Revis, who missed almost all of last season after suffering a torn ACL, engaged in a long holdout in 2010 that resulted in a contract extension that was more of a Band-Aid than anything else.
With the Jets trying to solve salary-cap issues, Revis is a prime candidate due to his large salary and a now questionable knee after ACL surgery that cost him the 2012 season.
With Revis now officially on the trading block, here's a look at five teams that figure to be automatic fits for the man once known as "Revis Island." The Jets are in clear rebuilding mode, and there are plenty of teams that would surrender a draft pick and cash for the right to pencil him in as a starter in 2013.
