I think Revis should stay with they jets unless they can get a #1 pick. Fans need something to hold on to and he is a better face than Rex for the team. The jets can up his salary for the next three years and then guarantee a large bonus in 2016 ans spread that over the last three years of his deal.
Revis Will have his salary increased from 3 mill to 11 mill in 2014 and 2015
in 2016 he gets 25 mill SB and salaries of 7 per year for three years. This ends up being 6 years and 70 mill, but no worries about next years performance. This does not increase his cap hit for next year allowing the jets some flexibility
If he is traded. My understanding is that under the new CBA the SB has to be amortized over 5 years max and that players salaries can not increase more than 30% each year of the contract. That means that his first year cap hit for the NEW team will be at least 10 mill. (3mill salary and 7mill SB)
These are the following team with at least 10 mill of cap room. With a quick note regarding Their level of interest or actual cap situation.
Baltimore $1.2M $15.7M (Flacco, Ellebree, Williams, Mckinne FA)
Buffalo $9.8M $20.6M AFC EAST
Chicago $3.2M $13.3M needs Oline, WR no 2nd rd pick
Cincinnati $8.5M $55.1M did not think Joseph was worth 8 mill
Cleveland $14.3M $48.9M Hayden is FA in 2014
Denver $11.5M $18.5M Clady FA this year, so is CB Porter
Houston $2.4M $12.9M signed joseph & drafted cb #1
Indianapolis $3.5M $46M
Jacksonville $19.5M $22.1M
Kansas City $14M $16.1M let Carr go at 8 mill but new gm
Miami $5.3M $35.8M afc east
Minnesota $8M $16.1M
New England $5.6M $18.6M afc east /pay structure
Seattle $13.2M $18.6M Best and cheapest secondary in the NFL
Tampa Bay $8.5M $31.3M
Tennessee $12.8M $19.4M
Based on not trading him in the division and eliminating Balt, Houston and Seattle as they already have quality players or inn balt's case no money once Flacco is signed. There are 9 teams that could have an interest and have enough cap room to get it done.
Nice work Patman. From your choices I think Denver will show interest. Their Safety lost them that last playoff game. Denver needs to win now with Manning and getting him a support cast could make the difference.
