Sources close to Darrelle Revis told The Post last night that Revis wants to stay a Jet.
Wants owner Woody Johnson — more than Arthur Blank of the Falcons, more than Jed York of the 49ers, more than anyone — to show him the money.
“He wants to remain a Jet,” the source said. “He has never asked to be traded.”
Revis has not given up on the idea that Johnson will appease his lame-duck head coach, Rex Ryan, and find a way to keep him in green and white rather than trade him. In Revis’ mind, apparently, the grass isn’t necessarily greener elsewhere, and neither is the money.
Nor has Revis given up on the idea the Jets can be playoff contenders once he returns healthy from his torn ACL in his left knee, even if most everyone else on the outside, including me, sees the Jets, with holes all over the roster, in rebuilding mode.
Revis’ glass somehow remains half-full. He remembers the glory days when a young Mark Sanchez took the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games and hasn’t given up on that idea either, that if Sanchez is surrounded by better weapons, anything is possible in this NFL. Gulp.
