On the heels of an ESPN report from last night indicating that Darrelle Revis wants to be traded by the New York Jets ASAP, another report has come out with an opposing viewpoint.
According to ProFootballTalk, Revis “doesn’t wanted to be traded, hasn’t asked to be traded, and has never at any time during his career in New York intimated directly or indirectly a desire to be sent to a new team.”
However, there’s no denying that Revis is available and the Jets want to trade him.
“He’s gone,” a source told the New York Daily. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”
Rumors have Revis going all over the place, from San Francisco to Denver to Atlanta to Philadelphia.
San Francisco has 15 picks in his upcoming draft thanks to the Alex Smith trade, and could use them to their advantage in pulling off a trade.
Revis is regarded by many as the top cornerback in the league, but missed all but two games of the 2012 season with a torn ACL and subsequent knee surgery.
The Jets will likely ask for at least a first round pick in exchange for Revis.
At the NFL the combine last month, the 49ers were checking in with agents on the cornerback market, thus confirming that they are indeed looking to upgrade their secondary.
