Idzik says Revis “ahead of schedule,” hints Tebow could stick around

Darrelle Revis may or may not be a New York Jet come the 2013 NFL season, but he’s ahead of schedule in returning from a torn ACL, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

“By all accounts, by his doctor’s accounts — he’s doing very well. By their estimation he’s ahead of schedule,” said John Idzik on his disgruntled cornerback. Idzik and coach Rex Ryan, who normally dodge questions from reporters, were doing so from fans Monday, speaking on a conference call with season ticket holders.

Idzik and Ryan predictably didn’t elaborate on the rumors that the Jets are considering trading Revis saying only that the corner is a New York Jet and they appreciate having him that way. “Darrelle is a very valued player on our team. Our focus is squarely on getting him healthy, getting him back to his level of play.”

“Tim, as you know, he’s currently on our roster. What we’re doing is we’re trying to increase competition at that position and positions across the board,” said Idzik. “So we’re going to let the competition play out. We’re going to see who we’re able to bring on board and let it play out this offseason and into training camp. So I think that’ll be healthy for all concerned, including Tim.”
