NEW YORK – Looking to improve their fortunes after several disappointing seasons, the New York Jets successfully unloaded the player that was clearly holding them back from reaching the next level when they traded CB Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Buccaneers Sunday.
“Thank God that dead weight is off our team,” smiled Jets coach Rex Ryan. “After missing the playoffs for two straight seasons, I knew something had to change. After extensively reviewing hundreds of hours of game film, I came to the conclusion that our problem certainly wasn’t with our gameplans, playcalling, or other strategic decisions. No, it turns out the problem was Darrelle all along”
“Free at last,” sighed QB Mark Sanchez. “You have no idea how frustrating it’s been for me to perform at an elite level week after week, only to have Revis sabotage our efforts with his substandard play. Finally we can start winning some games around here.”
According to multiple reports, the Jets will receive Tampa’s first round pick (#13 overall) in Thursday’s draft.
“It was an offer we couldn’t pass up,” concluded Ryan. “Thanks to this trade, we can now select a player to fill one of our glaring needs. We’re thinking cornerback.”
