Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis tweets about trade rumors

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis tweeted about reports that the Jets will explore trading him this offseason. CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora reported about the possibility on Wednesday.

After a press conference Thursday to introduce new general manager John Idzik, Jets owner Woody Johnson failed to deny the report. Head coach Rex Ryan declined to discuss the issue.

"I'm not going to get into any of those specifics right now. Let's let the process run its course," Ryan said (via USA TODAY). "I'm confident that any decision made by this organization without question will be in the best interest of the team."

Revis is recovering from a torn ACL. He played in only two games this season. He is due to make $6 million next season and is expected to soon start looking for a new long-term contract. The Jets are estimated to already be $19 million over the salary cap for next season, and trading Revis would help relieve some of that burden.

But to trade the star cornerback, New York would need a solid return. Revis is only 27 years old and, before his injury, was considered by many to be one of the best players in the game. He had made four straight Pro Bowls before this season.
