01:46 PM ET 01.24 | The New York Jets introduced new general manager John Idzik on Thursday morning, one day after news surfaced that the team might be open to trading star cornerback Darrelle Revis. It was Idzik's first foray into dealing with the New York press, which was eager to get his thoughts on just that possibility. Idzik, however, deftly avoided the issue, responding with non-committal answers and saying it was too early to talk about trades According to ESPN.com's James Walker, Idzik said:

"Too early to talk about trades" is GM-speak for we haven't gotten a decent offer, yet.

We do things by committee! We have a Strong Management Team! George Young I am in charge of the football operations, everyone reports to me, so if have a question about anything that moves on the field I'm your guy, I pick the players etc, etc! Suppose Mr Mara wants a player I will take it under advisment!

Butthead and Revis.

Why not talk about a guy who whiffs on tackles, is (lately) oft injured and is always contemplating opting out of his contract? Sure, there might be things we don't know, but this guy doesn't have anywhere to hide his lack of production anymore.

There isn't a single player on that team "untouchable".

This is a smart move really They set themselves up for an early pick and with some actual franchise players possibly next year (Manziel Clowney to name a couple) and get below the cap while getting some parts that are needed elsewhere as it's quite obvious that QB is not there only problem
