|Manish Mehta on MFB: ‘I don’t really understand why the Patriots would file tampering charges’ against Jets||03.03.15 at 1:37 pm ET|
New York Daily News Jets beat writer Manish Mehta joined Middays with MFB Tuesday to discuss his report of the Jets being interested in bringing back Darrelle Revis if the cornerback were to hit free agency. To hear the interview, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
Mehta reported Jets owner Woody Johnson has had serious internal discussions about the Jets signing Revis if he were to hit the open market.
“If he does hit the open market, I think it’s very fair to say the Jets will be very aggressive in trying to get him,” said Mehta. “Obviously the Patriots hold the cards at least for the next few days, and have the first crack in keeping him or offering something that would prevent him from going to free agency.”
Revis and Johnson have come up before, as a few months back Johnson said he’d “love to have Darrelle Revis” back with the Jets. The Patriots reportedly filed tampering charges against Johnson and the Jets for the remarks. Mehta disagrees with what the Patriots did.
“I don’t really understand why the Patriots would file tampering charges,” he said.
He added: “The way I look at is, I thought it was a harmless remark. I was actually in the room when Woody said that and you have to keep in mind that when he did say [it], he didn’t have a general manager in place, he didn’t have a head coach in place. This isn’t Woody Johnson saying to the new regime, ‘Hey, I want Darrelle Revis regardless of what you guys think.’ Obviously the GM and the subsequent head coach that he hired, they are all on board with bringing in a player like Darrelle Revis. If they didn’t want Darrelle Revis there wouldn’t be serious internal discussions as there have been over the past several weeks.
“I was of the belief that it was a harmless remark. He was asked directly about Revis and he said he liked the player. He said if he thought he could have signed him for $12 million, which is what New England paid him last year, a couple years back he would have signed him.”
Revis is on the books for a team option with New England for $20 million for next season, but the speculation is the Patriots will not pay that amount, thus making him a free agent.
