That 2010 holdout that resulted in a $42 mil band aid extension...took away the franchise tag from the Jets. Also...it contained a poison pill. That if Revis didn't agree to a new contract...and walked...Jets end up getting tagged with a $9 mil dead money hit to the 2014 CAP.
Those Scrooge & Marley agents of Revis raped Tanny and the Jets real good with that new contract. The Revis camp just let that oderous contract tick away...like a time bomb. While it was ticking...along came the $100 mil Mario Williams contract. That makes the Asomugha money pale in comparison.
Now the Revis camp had all the leverage...Jets had none. They told the Jets that they wanted Williams $100 type money...or Revis walks. Resulting in Jets eating $9 mil 2014 CAP dead money.
There never has been any real negotiations going on for a reasonable landing spot. Cause Revis had Jets by the short hairs.
Revis knew he was going to get his Williams money...either by a Jets capitulation...FA, or through a trade. Like anyone who has a gun put to their head...Jets weren't going to cave in and pay Revis a ransom.
Revis will never play for the Jets in 2013. IMO...Revis expected it to end this way too. Revis will haul in his $100 mil from some other team. And that's all that matters to him.
Nobody who seriously wants to be a Jet for life...would force a contract on them like that. But the Revis camp did. Again... Jets have a $100 mil gun aimed at their heads...and a alternative of $9mil 2014 dead money. So Jets have no choice...but to trade him for whatever they can get...and never look back.
Anyway...IMO...as soon as the ink was dry on that so called band aid extension...that gave Revis all the leverage and the Jets none to bargain with. Revis was never going to end up a Jet for life. And Darelle knew it.
Send him to Denver, with one stipulation, Tebow goes with him.
In other words, this can be a win-win. Jets get Revis at a little above the 12-13M number they probably would be comfortable with (but little enough above it not to hurt), and Revis gets to claim he broke the system and is being paid as a top defender and not just a CB.
A team with a huge need at CB and will have almost $50 million in cap space to work with.
There's a lot of talk that they would jump all over Milliner if he falls to #13, but that seems unlikely.
Personally, I'm all in favor of an even swap of Revis for the 13th overall pick. They get the best CB in the game with plenty of cap room to sign him longterm and we get another high 1st round pick to bolster the rest of the team.
#9: OG Chance Warmack - Alabama
#13: OLB Barkevious Mingo - LSU
Yeah, that looks nice.
I don't think we have enough Revis threads, good work.
Unless Warmack is a lock, I wouldn't take a Guard with the 9th pick. Mock drafts have him going 10-16 (about) right now, so I'd probably take the BAP in the scenario.
Getting 1 pick for Revis, albeit #13, is very low. I would expect something else as well, possibly a 2014 pick or something (perhaps a player?).
Toss in next seasons 2 as well and I'm in
would not do any deal for Revis that doesn't start with 3 picks. Would consider TB for #13, but they would need to throw in next year's one, or next year's two and three to even be considered. We'll need that flexibility next year when there will be more qb's for the offering.
another revis thread??????????????????????????
merge them all. :steamin:
trade revis and our defense will suck just like our offense.
