And I don't think it's 100% personal. I think Idzik is wary of an extension too for the reasons I stated.
It really is Mr. T's fault.
Oh I understand that Woody can do whatever the hell he wants, but it doesn't make it any more intelligent of a business decision or make him any better of an owner. To me, personal stuff has to be kept out of business decisions. If there's other reasons, fair. I still think they can suck next year, drop their big contracts with average players after 2014, and build around a rookie QB, Revis, their young DL, and Brick/Mangold. The QB won't need a new contract till the end of the Revis deal anyway.

If it's a real offer (and I'm skeptical), Idzik probably isn't in a rush to take it. The 2014 draft is literally 13 months away, and they've got like 7 months left to trade Revis. Unless he thinks the offer is going to go away, no harm in sitting around for a little while and seeing if something better comes along.
