Your idea is a smart move, so we probably wont do it.
Our defense has not really been affected by the loss of revis....which means him coming back technically makes cro expendable.
For all the kyle wilson haters, he has been fine as a starter.
We cant pay Cro $8 million and Revis $15 million
Revis cannot be traded and we cannot franchise him, therefore we risk losing him for compensatory picks only.
The advent of the spread offense limits how much a CB is valued to a team.
Cro's value has NEVER been higher.
We have many holes on this team that need to be filled.
I sincerely think cro can bring back a second round pick. His contract is not terrible, and vontae davis was just traded for a second, so there is a precedent. We need these picks to fill holes at OLB and Oline and this will save us money long term.
Lastly, it allows us to use our own 2nd round pick to fill a hole, and use the other one on a QB to hopefully be the starter in 2014.
Its a smart business trade
