It is being reported that the Jets may be considering trading the star corner back rather than resign him when his current deal expires at the end of the year. Revis looks to make 6 million dollars in the final year of his contract (plus bonuses) after missing all of last year due to a knee injury.

I'm sure there will be people pushing for the Patriot's to pursue Revis as the savior for our ever-incompetent secondary, but I for one would like to put an end to that discussion right now. There is now way or scenario I can envision where either the Jets or Patriots would make a deal that would send Revis to New England.

As we all witnessed firsthand, the Jets offense flat out sucks. Undoubtedly in trading Revis they would be looking to get young talent to build their offense around in the coming years. And I highly, highly doubt the Patriots would be willing to give up the package of talent the Jets would want in exchange for Revis. I imagine that package could involve Ridley, Vereen, and maybe even Hernandez, along with some draft picks as well.

A deal of this caliber does not fit into the Patriot's philosophy we have come to know. They have such a solid base of young players to build around, I see no reason why they would dismantle any part of that young core to acquire Revis, who despite being the best corner back in the league, is coming off a serious knee injury. Plus, Revis has made his dislike for Bill Belichick explicitly clear in the past.

Furthermore, I don't see why the Jets would be so interested in moving Revis to their division rival. Unless the Jets make the Patriots an offer they truly can't refuse, I would say there is a zero percent chance we ever see him in a Pats uniform.

That being said, it would be interested to see what teams would aggressively pursue Revis in a deal. Again, the Jets would be looking for some offensive firepower in exchange for Revis' defensive abilities.

We will see how this pans out in the off-season and into next year, but I can all but guarantee Revis is not coming to New England.
