the new gm needs to sit down with revis and try and restructure his deal to make it favorable for everyone and retire him a jet.
Even if we offer Revis $14-$15 million per year why do you think he will just accept it? He doesn't have to, he has all of the leverage since he can't be franchise tagged. If you are in Revis' position wouldn't you want to prove that you are 100% healthy and then let half the league bid on you and let your salary sky rocket? Doesn't that make the most sense? It's obvious that Revis is a money person first and a team person second. We've seen that twice already from holdouts. So why would he even negotiate with the Jets when they have no leverage? His agents could just say to the Jets, "he will sign when you offer him a 6 year deal north of $96 million, otherwise he won't re-sign".
If the Jets don't trade him he will walk away from this team as fast as he can and the same guys who are saying to sign him now will be pissed that we lost him for nothing. You either trade him at some point before he hits free agency or you get nothing for him and he won't back. He has no loyalty to this team.
