Feb. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Jets talked with teams about trading All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis during the National Football League Combine, the New York Daily News reported, citing an unidentified person familiar with the situation.
New General Manager John Idzik was actively shopping Revis at the league’s scouting combine in Indianapolis, and interested teams are examining the Jets’ requirements for compensation and Revis’s contract demands, the newspaper said without identifying the other clubs.
Idzik, Jets owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan didn’t meet with Revis’s agents during the combine, the Daily News said. Revis, who played two games last season before tearing a ligament in his left knee, is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2013 season, when he is due to make $6 million with the Jets.
Revis, 27, was selected as an All-Pro in three of his first five NFL seasons and has been regarded by some analysts as the best defensive player in the NFL when healthy. ESPN has said Revis may be seeking as much as $16 million a year.
