Again, its not only the yearly avg. More importantly it's the quaranteed money he will want. And its going to be an easy 40-50 mil. And that's QB type guaranteed money. Marion Williams got it, how much did he help the Bills this year?
First off, who said this? He didn't. The only people that said that TWO YEARS AGO were the NY media jackals and if you want to believe their bs lies then feel free to do that.
However, Revis did say he wants to be the best paid CB. He's not stupid. He knows he's not as valuable as the premiere pass rushers in the league. Positionally, he just isn't. But he is the best CB and he deserves to be paid that way. If the Jets are the ones that are putting these rumors out there then they are telling Revis and his agents that they want to get this deal done now or they will trade him. There's no way from a football perspective that they'd just trade him because they need to rebuild the offense... an offense that has issues that start and end at the QB position. And trading Revis isn't going to get that issue resolved. It's worth it to trade Cromartie in an attempt to get a backup QB that is ready to be the starter but is stuck behind a quality QB. But it's not likely. At least not in my opinion.
