12:52 PM ET 03.23 | No matter how much trade discussion surrounds Darrelle Revis, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan insists his star cornerback is not up for grabs. The latest from ESPN's Jane McManus has Ryan saying for the second straight day that there's no truth to Revis trade rumors, and that he believes the star defender will be a Jet next season. Revis has been the subject of more trade rumors than anyone else this NFL offseason due to his exorbitant contract. The Jets are going to take a major hit to the salary cap either way with a trade this year, but it's really about getting out of any future obligations to Revis as well as landing significant future assets for his services. The Buccaneers have reportedly offered major picks in 2014, but no deal has been made. And Rex says that's not happening at all.

So in essence, Rex is holding out for the right "price".

Isn't Revis under contract?

The right price=draft picks.

Draft picks in this year's draft. Tampa Bay has already offered draft picks from next year's draft and the Jets have turned them down.

He's at the end of his current contract and the Jets are just trying to get something for him before he just walks away as a free agent. They already gave up the ability to franchise him.

"Not Actively trying to trade..."

And college guys are not "actively" trying to find a girl to take home from the bar. "Actively" only means they will only admit to it if they succeed.
