Meanwhile, Ryan indicated he probably wouldn’t reach out to Revis.

“I don’t know what I would tell him,” Ryan said. “I don’t know if he’d take my call. … We’d say hello to each other, I guess.”

For a team with Super Bowl hopes, the thought of perhaps their best player sitting out an entire season could be scary. The Jets insist life will go on if that happens.

“We’re still going to be good,” Thurman said. “Trust me.”

That’s because of the depth at the position the Jets entered camp with. Not only did they draft Wilson with the 29th overall pick, they traded for Cromartie, a former Pro Bowl cornerback.

“I think I’m getting a lot of extra reps, obviously, versus some quality guys on offense,” Wilson said. “It’s definitely speeding up my learning curve.”

Lowery, who started 10 games in his rookie season, knows the value of playing immediately.

“There’s a chance that Revis won’t be here at all, anytime,” Lowery said. “We all need to be ready to step up to the plate, so to speak.”

Wilson has been leaning on some of the veterans, such as Cromartie and safety Jim Leonhard, and Thurman _ a former NFL defensive back _ to help him pick up on things quicker.

“It’s coming,” Wilson said. “I feel like I’m doing OK, but obviously, I want to be a lot better. I feel like I’m on that steady path to getting better.”

NOTES: Ryan said Matt Slauson, competing with second-round pick Vladimir Ducasse for the LG job, will start against the Giants. … LB-DE Jason Taylor (groin) didn’t participate in team drills. … Ryan said QB Mark Brunell is “a lock” for the backup job to Mark Sanchez, leaving Kellen Clemens and Kevin O’Connell to compete for the No. 3 spot.
