Darrelle Revis' future with the Jets may be unclear now, but former general manager Mike Tannenbaum left little doubt that he had no designs of moving the All-Pro cornerback before he suffered a season-ending knee injury.
"I didn't have plans to trade Darrelle through this past season," said Tannenbaum, who made the rounds on radio row on Tuesday in an attempt to repair his image and find a job.
Tannenbaum was fired the day after the regular season ended after a series of missteps in personnel and contracts left the organization in a bind. He didn't definitively say whether he was interviewed for any front-office openings in the past few weeks, but it appears that he would be amenable to getting a job in the media in the short term.
Tannenbaum negotiated what was believed to be a four-year "Band-Aid" contract for Revis before the 2010 season. Revis expressed several times in the past that he thought the four-year, $46 million contract was a bridge to ultimately make him a "Jet for Life."
