Revis Trade Rumors: Laying Out the Complications

Conor Orr has a really good article that lays out some of the pitfalls the Jets face no matter what they choose to do with Darrelle Revis.

The most important decision in Jets history – what to do with Darrelle Revis – is anything but a simple one. Extending his contract with terms attractive to Revis would make him one of the highest paid defensive players in football, a dangerous game to play for a team recovering from a salary cap nightmare. Trading him would ship away the face of the organization, the lynchpin in head coach Rex Ryan’s defense and a vocal leader inside the locker room. Doing nothing would leave Revis’ bargain price tag at $6 million this season, but ensure the Jets would be left with little when Revis hits the open market next year.

Orr spoke with many people around the league to write the article.

I personally think Orr has become the best writer on the Jets beat. All offseason he has been exploring possibilities from all angles regarding Revis, quarterbacks, offensive coordinator and general manager candidates. He's been thorough and used sources to shed some light on situations.
