Is an all pro DB worth north of a $96 million deal for 6 years and what effect would that have on the team to add more defensive and offensive talent?
Also let's be clear about Mr Revis's feelings...he was the one who held out for a new contract when he was under contract saying he wanted enough money in case his playing days came to an end. Well I don't know about you but I could easily live on what he is making right now for the rest of my life. If Revis truly wanted to stay a Jet it would not be about being the highest paid player on defense it would be about good money for a DB because he wants to stay with the team.
You are absolutely right. Revis wants to be a Jet only as long as he is the highest paid defensive player in the league! How's that for loyalty? Home-town discount is not in his or his agent's vocabulary.
