I believe Darrelle Revis will end up staying in New York. He is too good of a player to give up, unless the Jets get a superstar in return. Without him this year, the Jets went 5-9. The Jets defense is built around Revis and Cromartie. If they let him go, it will definitely be a downgrade since there aren't many cornerback's that can play on Revis's level.
He averages about 4 INT's a year and has the ability to return them all back for touchdowns. If they trade him, they may not get a great player in return. He missed last year with an injury, but he should be healthy and play like a shutdown corner this season. Offenses don't throw to his side of the field because he is a shutdown corner. He also has the ability to play against the run and he averages 42 tackles a year, which is a lot for a cornerback.
He has 2 Jets franchise records which are the longest interception return for a touchdown and most defended passes. He is clutch in moments he is needed most. He has a great relationship with his teammates and he is a great leader. He wants a big contract and he deserves it.
If Revis plays at a high level for the rest of his career, he could end up in the Hall of Fame.
