Then it is adjusted downward by the value of the FA signed by the team that lost the star.
It is further adjusted downward if the old team signs more FA than they lost that year.
When Faneca went to the jets all Pitt got was a 5th, even though he signed a contract making him the highest paid guard
The New York Jets spent around $11.5 million dollars last year or around 9% of the entire salary cap on Darrelle Revis.
What did we get for our money?
Appearing on ESPN Radio Tuesday morning, Adam Schefter suggested the Jets trade Darrelle Revis for Alex Smith and a second-round pick.
Schefter was just spitballing with Mike and Mike, not reporting. The Jets desperately need quarterback help, Alex Smith is on the block and everyone would be interested in a healthy Revis. The ultra-deep Niners are even in a position to take a one-year flier on Revis, who is due just $6 million in 2013 -the final year of his contract.
I would say Smith, 1st and 4th.
Alex Smith = Mark Sanchez
Since when is Revis getting traded?
Lol at Schefter. He pulls this crap out of his rear end. Sure, lets trade away an all time great CB for a QB that will be released and the last pick in the 2nd round.
I don't envision much of a bidding war for Alex Smith's services if/when he is cut.
Revis on the Niners would be UNREAL!
With that being said that is a horrible trade. There has to be some team with a top 10 #1 pick in the future that is willing to bite.....
If the jets trade revis for Alex smith Wow. I might stop being a jets fan .
Alex Smith's career QB rating is barely 7 points higher than Sanchez, and the guy is going into his 9th year.
