The Jets having him on the roster does create some distractions with the media but if you're the Jets you know Revis can't hold out and has to play his best football so unless your getting at least a 2nd and some change you're better off just keeping him and having him help your team.
Ultimately I think the Jets wind up having to keep him and wait till the trading deadline where he can prove he's healthy and can play at a high level and you might get a contender that gets hit with the injury bug and needs a CB like Revis even if it's a rental. Like us for example in that we might be more inclined to swing a deal if say Justin Smith went down or a couple of CBs were out for an extended amount of time.
Agreed. Earlier in the thread I did mention that it made no sense for the Jets to trade him for a mid round pick for the reason you stated. He can walk after 13-14 and they'd still get a comp pick. So the question becomes does Baalke trade a 3rd for him. I hope not. Not because I don't think he is worth it, even for one year, but because no one is sure what kind of Revis you are getting. How much will his knee injury affect him?
The scenario you put forth is realistic. Teams need to know what they are getting if they commit a 2nd rounder to acquire him.
