I would ask for what I listed. Jets would get a conditional 3 with Revis walking so that has to be on the table right away. 1st rounder of course - and in Denver's case that's practically a 2nd rounder. Then yes - I'd ask for a mid rounder next year - plenty of teams are capable of a 1/3, if Denver really wants a unique player for their unique situation then I can't see a mid-rounder getting in the way.
The thing is if they sign revis and Clady this year,I hope you don't think that they would ever let the LT walk.that is 20 mill right there. What are they going to do with Thomas and Miller the following year?
And the jets won't get a third as a comp pick. they will only get a 3rd if they lose more FA than they sign. They will have 50 mil of cap room and 25 guys on the roster. They will spend all that 50 mill or pretty well close to it.
