While owner Woody Johnson appears to be hell-bent on a Revis trade, the Jets are trying to convince the rest of the league that there's no pressure to swing a deal. The Bucs reportedly are losing interest and patience with the Jets' demands.
Contrary to popular opinion, Ryan does not believe a Revis trade is a "foregone conclusion," but at the same time, he's not "naive" about teams being interested in good players.
Ryan's comments are consistent with the front the Jets are publicly presenting, but it still strains credulity to believe Revis will play another season in Florham Park, N.J. without a new big-money contract. We know from Johnson's stance that the Jets' organization is unwilling to go that route.
