Transition mode may take over a significant part of Gang Green's personnel, too. The New York Jets, fresh off an exhaustive hunt for new general manager John Idzik, will explore options to deal star corner Darrelle Revis this offseason, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Revis, whose contract voids after the 2014 season, is set to earn $6 million in 2013 (between salary and bonuses), and owner Woody Johnson has strong reservations about the ability to extend Revis's deal, the sources said. Johnson has expressed his desire to attempt to land value for Revis now, rather than risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent a year from now, most likely seeking as much draft-pick compensation for him as possible.

In fact, he says he won't even watch the national telecast when the reserves are revealed. ... [Bosh's] candidacy seems to be a complicated case. While he's shooting a career-best 54.3 percent from the field, Bosh's 7.2 rebounding average and 33 minutes a game are both the lowest of his career. (ESPN.com) Comment
