If Revis goes you just replace him with another shut down corner you draft in round 1. Or, use the shutdown corner we already drafted in round 1 - Kyle ****ing Wilson. It's just that simple
You cant say "would you turn down millions" because it's not relative to a average Joe who only makes $70k a year, but if I was happy at a job making, say $100k, I would definitely pass on a job making $105 if I was happy where I was at.... Especially if I already had enough money in the bank to live like a rock star for multiple lifetimes like Revis does! LOL
Players do it all the time, Revis cant comprehend it because he is a greedy jackazz.
Jets options are rather limited. sign him now for Qb money. Watch him leave and get a fourth rounder( late third rounder) back in compensation in 2015. Or trade him now and get what you can. Probably a second rounder.
That what the Jets are looking at and it sucks that Jets can't get true value back for a special player. Every general manager knows the situation the Jets are facing. The ball in the Jets front office hands what they will do with Revis.
That would be the case if there wasn't 5-6 team interested in Revis.
He's an all time great with huge name recognition & he's still young.
Revis gets traded for a MINIMUM of a 1st, especially if its a late 1st rounder, that team would have to sweeten the pot with a conditional 2 nd in 2014.
A team like Atlanta that is a hair away from a Superbowl will be in he bidding if they can afford him.
He's probably started his 3 rd holdout already!
Serious ly, lets make a smart move for once and realize he's and we r not going to be able to resign him, and just save the tabloids the trouble of a holdout and turn the page already
- This remains to be seen, he's coming off a bad injury. Before the injury, you were right. Now? Not sure.
Remember the defense did fine without him this year. I hate to say it, but before I throw bunches of money at Revis, I'd pay Landry. He did a good job for us at safety.
What ever the Jets do, is it too much to ask them to act in a professional manner and not leak out all of these stories.
JMO and experience watching this unfold. NO team wants to trade for a top Cb ( pay the CB team price to acquire ). And still have to shell out Qb money to a player who isn't a QB.
It a different story if that player a FA and it just money it going to cost the team.
JMo with the Jets unable to put the franchise tag on Revis in 2014, that put them in a terrible position and probably going to cost them any chance at getting a number 1 from any team. ( Jets have no plans at signing Revis before training camp than they better get something for him. ( It's better to take the second round pick now than take the fourth in 2015 if he leaves in Fa.
even if Jets work out a trade, no team is making it unless they can sign a long term contract with Revis. If you're Revis why would you do that when there could be a real bidding war in 2014. ( Show me the money and back up the brinks truck). multiple teams competing for his services.
The jets were silly not to protect themselves there with the franchise tag.
"Fair" value is rarely ever achieved when trading a player of Revis' stature. First, he is not a QB or a dominant pass rusher thus his value is not as high as a player of those positions. Second, he has one year left on his deal. So he is either a one year rental for someone or the team has to sign him to the big money deal that Revis wants, that hurts his value because if a team HAS to pay him, they are going to be less willing to also give away a lot of draft picks.
Leaking this story was actually a smart move by the Jets. They get to gauge interest from other teams and see what value they can get and they send a message to Revis that his future with the Jets is not a given and are not going to be held hostage by him and give him a blank check.
another point. Revis is holding all the cards. Jet's can't franchise tag him in 2014( Tanny should have got fired just for that). Jets could get six first rounders for D Revis in a trade. You think d Revis is going to sign a contract extension with a team( he doesn't do that the trade is off). When he looking at unrestricted FA with so many teams bidding on his services.
Now if you were D Revis what would you do. Listen man I feel your pain ( went through this a lot). But you're getting screwed in any deal for Revis.
The reality is there are only a handful of teams who have the cap space, disparately need help at DB and view themselves as only a few players away from the big game. Any trade would require the preliminary framework of a L/T deal before moving forward with the trade. This implicitly sets the table for internal negotiations. Itís really a smart move all around. Management has a basis for setting the MKT value and if Revis isnít happy with the numbers, he can test the market himself.
It hard to justify to a team fan base why they let their best defensive player go for a late third rounder( which really a fourth rounder) which will happen if he get to training camp without a contract .( he's gone).
The Jet's don't even have the power of the franchise tag to play with. ( hold over his head) So if your D Revis and you get to training camp without a new contract than you cut off all talks with the Jets.
you prove to everyone you're 100% healthy in 2013. Than you watch how much money he gets as you have so many teams competing for his services on the open market in 2014.
That make D Revis one happy camper.
