1: Robert Griffen III QB (Baylor) - The more I watch highlights on this guy, the more I like him. He has the maturity (which this team lacks) of a veteran in the league and the skills to match or even exceed (better pure passer) Cam Newton. With Sparano, there is an understanding that the OL will be the strength, which will give time to an accurate passer, but if protection breaks down can easily evade the rush and gain some yardage with his feet. It's time to grab the bull by the horns and get a franchise quarterback, not a game manager.
If the Jets think Sanchez is all he will be and RGIII will be a true franchise QB I am OK with the Jets doing what needs to be done to get to 2. However your trade is really light. Here is what it would take:
1600 points from 16 to 2. Figure Keller is a 2nd round trade value, that's 420 points. Our 2nd is 420. Next years one is maybe 500. We are still short, so would need to do something like our 3rd for their 4th and 2nd and fifth rounders next year.
So with Keller:
Jets: Keller, 2012 first, second and third round picks, 2012 first 2nd and fifth
St louis: 2012 first and fourth round picks
Not very realistic.
Scenario 2: The Jets are not guaranteed to keep Revis next time. Now Revis' value is ridiculously high as the best defensive player in football. He is probably worth more than the franchise tag so figure 2 1sts and a second
So 1600 points again: Revis value 1000 +420 +190 =1610 if you consider one of the 1s from this year but St Louis will argue both should be 2013 1s so 1010. They would likley wind in the middle and declare Revis 1200. There would be a lot of back and forth so it would wind up something like:
Jets: Revis, 2012 first, second and third rounders, 2013 fifth
St Louis 2012 first, fourth, fifth 2013 fourth
Not sure I would do that trade, but it would be good value for both sides. But it would take that much.
If the Jets did that, they would likely trade Sanchez and Keller for additional picks in the 2012 draft
