INDIANAPOLIS -- One year ago, John Idzik showed up for his first scouting combine as the New York Jets' general manager and he was pelted with questions about Darrelle Revis trade rumors.

He was asked every which way about the possibility of a Revis trade, and Idzik did more dancing than a Rockette.

On Thursday, Idzik was reminded of last year's Revis frenzy. He smiled.

"Who?" he asked, playfully.

Idzik could afford to joke. Yes, he traded one of the best cornerbacks in football, incurring criticism, but he turned the draft-pick compensation into Sheldon Richardson. He was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

"Who" did well in his new home, making the Pro Bowl and making $16 million from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
