Revis ‘speechless’ over reports Jets may trade star cornerback

New Jets general manager John Idzik has not even been on the job for a week and he already has a crisis on his hands.

On the day of his introductory press conference, Idzik spent time answering questions about the future of star cornerback Darrelle Revis after reports surfaced owner Woody Johnson is open to trading him.

Those rumors are not sitting well with Revis, who is rehabbing his surgically repaired knee in Arizona. He took to Twitter to voice his displeasure, saying he was “speechless” about the rumors but “more upset for the jet nation for having to go through this!!!” Revis later tweeted: “I guess we’ll see how this plays out.” Revis has said repeatedly he wants to remain a Jet for his entire career.

Instead of quashing the rumors, the Jets just fanned the flames yesterday. Idzik, Johnson and coach Rex Ryan refused to say there was no truth to the reports. They all danced around the issue, saying it was too soon to discuss what they will do with Revis.

“I think it’s way premature to say anything specific,” Idzik said.

Revis is by far the best player on the Jets’ roster and maybe the best cornerback in football
