Report: Jets Will Trade Darrelle Revis During Offseason, 49ers, Falcons Among Teams With Interest

Darrelle RevisIt appears it’s not a question of if the Jets will trade Darrelle Revis, but when the team will trade their star cornerback.

The Jets will trade Revis this offseason, according to the New York Daily News. The 49ers and Falcons are among “two or three ‘legitimate buyers'” for the shutdown cornerback.

“He’s gone,” an anonymous source told the New York Daily News. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”

Revis will likely draw strong interest around the league, but the Jets won’t be able to get top dollar for their prized possession since he’s coming off ACL surgery. Revis is set to make $3 million in base salary this season. If Revis is traded, the Jets would take on a $12 million cap hit and a loss of $3 million in salary cap room, according to OverTheCap.com.
