Jason Smith $12M
Calvin Pace $8.56M
Bart Scott $7.15M
Sione Pouha $3.83M
Eric Smith $3M
Tim Tebow $1.53M
Total = $36.07M
In addition around 20 players (many no names) who would save $500K each.
Mark Sanchez $8.3M
Antonio Cromartie $9.5M
Santonio Holmes $8.25M
David Harris $5M
Total = $31M
My point here is there appears to be plenty of $ to resign Revis, if we're willing to part with some of these other names.
Just don't understand why so many folks are so quick to put Revis' name out there. Some say they would take a 3rd rounder for him. When's the last time we drafted a quality 3rd rounder? Even first rounders are a crap shoot.
In addition,if Revis is traded, watch Antonio Cromartie immediately threaten to hold out for more money.
what you make is common sense, what this site and jets fans don't have much of. our front office and fan base don't respect its good players and hold on to the bad ones or wrong ones to long. ive watched over and over how the fans get so geeked up over some also ran with little or no talent (usally white) and want the head of a good player who is having a off year head on a platter. we are so quick to label black players a bust and or stupid that becomes insulting after a while. we have some of the most fickle fans in the states, they act like they are paying these people. we have a laundry list of players that are playing for other teams that the jets could or should have held on to. when you look at jets insider and see just two people on the hall of fame list its a shame as well. its a respect thing, if you treat your player right then maybe some one will not have to be given the farm to come here
