The Jets made one thing clear Thursday. They're not planning to trade Darrelle Revis.
In their most detailed comments since rumors surfaced the team might be shopping Revis, coach Rex Ryan and new GM John Idzik said they expect Revis to return from his season-ending knee injury as a Jet.
"With respect to clarity, I don't know that anything has really changed because we really have always wanted Darrelle to be a part of our team," Idzik said at the league's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis. "That has not changed. "… It's really hard for me or anybody in our organization to speculate and answer to all the rumors or stories that we hear. With respect to Darrelle, we have always wanted him to be a part of the … Jets."
When Idzik finished, it was Ryan's turn to speak his mind.
"When I called Darrelle up I said, 'Darrelle, let's face it, the man [Idzik] hasn't been on the job for 24 hours and now you're going to get traded?' " Ryan said. "And I said, 'You know, it's not accurate. Plain and simple.' ''
