Woody Johnson gave the strongest indication yet that the Jets are willing to trade Darrelle Revis by making it clear that you can’t build a championship team around anyone other than a franchise quarterback.
“No,” Johnson said at the league meetings on Sunday when asked whether he could build around Revis. “I think you need to look at the entire 53 (man roster). To build a team, if you don’t look at the whole 53, you’re not going to make it. It starts with the quarterback. You’ve got to get your quarterback going... and then you have to work on the 53. Everybody has to add. It’s not one player.”
“No team is just one player away maybe with the exception of the quarterback,” Johnson later added, making it clear that any Jet can be dealt for the right price. “You can’t be distracted by one player. You have to look at everything.”
The Daily News has reported that the Jets are poised to trade Revis, who is five months removed from season-ending ACL surgery, at the right price. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have expressed interest, but neither Johnson nor Jets general manager John Idzik discussed on Sunday whether they had received offers.
Although Johnson said that it was “patently untrue” that he has told people that he believes the best option is to trade Revis and it’s “been a little bit exaggerated” that he doesn’t want to sign the cornerback to a long-term contract extension, the Jets’ owner opened the door to moving his best player.
“If we can make our team better, we would be open to a conversation,” Johnson said. “But we’re not actively out there beating the bushes, because he’s on the team and we expect him to be on the team... We fully expect him to be up to the Revis Island that we’ve all known and loved.”
