First, Caldwell and gamble have no proven track record as you state.
Second, you cannot look at current bad deals as the reason to make the right deal with revis, they have nothing to do with each other.
Third, you cannot base logic on past draft selections as a reason to sign revis. Again, past failures have nothing to do with this.
This is business 101. There is zero emotion in business.
Paying a corner over 15-16 mil. Per year is bad business. That is not the model for a successful team.
You offer revis a fair market deal. If he accepts, great. If not, goodbye.
I am also 43 and do not want another bad contract on my team that will handcuff the franchise from filling all their spots with quality players.
