NEW YORK (AP) - A few hours after Darrelle Revis said he was ``speechless'' about rampant trade talk, new Jets general manager John Idzik reached out to the star cornerback Thursday to ask to ``give us a chance'' to evaluate the entire roster.
Idzik told NBC's Pro Football Talk on Friday that Revis ``reacted well'' to the phone call, which came after the GM, owner Woody Johnson and coach Rex Ryan were non-committal about the cornerback's future with the team. Revis expressed his frustration on Twitter, prompting the call from Idzik, introduced as the replacement for the fired Mike Tannenbaum hours earlier.
``We haven't taken that first step, and that's what I relayed to Darrelle,'' Idzik told Pro Football Talk.
Revis, recovering from a knee injury, is expected to draw plenty of trade interest.
