UPDATE 8:40 PM
Talking to 3 execs in last 12 hours, market for Revis seems to be a first-rounder, plus another high pick, perhaps a conditional ’14 pick.

As NFL free agency is just days away from opening, coupled with the NFL Draft vastly approaching, the New York Jets are looking to trade the best cornerback in the game in Darrelle Revis, and two potential suitors have emerged.
The NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, who will have 12 tradeable picks in next month’s NFL Draft.
The other team vying for Revis’ services is the team San Fran beat to advance to the Super Bowl: the Atlanta Falcons.
A source told the NY Daily News the following:
He’s gone. This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.
This news comes just a few days after Revis proclaimed he would be back and it didn’t matter if it was with the Jets:
Revis Island will be back on the field soon. I don’t know, we’ll see where the future leads to — if I’ll be back with the Jets or not. It really doesn’t matter. I just want to play football.
