My 2 Cents on Revis
Us old farts remember this trade like it was yesterday. For those younger persons here, google "Herschel Walker Trade" and read up on just what that trade did for the Dallas Cowboys and what it did to the Minnesota Vikings.
We have that type of player who we seemingly must trade. A trade of Revis done correctly could make this franchise. The wrong move can as easily, break this franchise, even more then it is already broken believe it or not.
Here's s a small snippet I found on the Herschel Walker trade:
"Minnesota Vikings received RB Herschel Walker
Dallas's 3rd round pick - 1990 (54) (Mike Jones)
San Diego's 5th round pick - 1990 (116) (Reggie Thornton)
Dallas's 10th round pick - 1990 (249) (Pat Newman)
Dallas's 3rd round pick - 1991 (68) (Jake Reed)
Dallas Cowboys received LB Jesse Solomon
LB David Howard
CB Issiac Holt
RB Darrin Nelson (traded to San Diego after he refused to report to Dallas)
DE Alex Stewart
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1990 (21) (traded this pick along with pick (81) for pick (17) from Pittsburgh to draft Emmitt Smith)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1990 (47) (Alexander Wright)
Minnesota's 6th round pick in 1990 (158) (traded to New Orleans, who drafted James Williams)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (12) (Alvin Harper)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (38) (Dixon Edwards)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (37) (Darren Woodson)
Minnesota's 3rd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (71) (traded to New England, who drafted Kevin Turner)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1993 (conditional) - (13) (traded to Philadelphia Eagles, and then to the Houston Oilers, who drafted Brad Hopkins)
That trade translated into a Dallas dynasty and multiple SB wins. In my opinion we have a top bargaining chip and because we need so many upgrades at so many positions we would be foolish not to try to pull off a trade similar to what I posted above, or as close as we can get anyway. Facts is, Revis is a great player but a total financial pain in the arse. We would be best served to wait, maybe even until the draft approaches and see if we can secure multiple picks in a similar fashion to what Jimmy Johnson did imo.
