No because they already had a contending team in place, and a HOF QB why would they trade his weapon away, who also happens to be a Hall of famer himself.
No because AP is not a CB, and actually has a much larger impact on the game because he can actually put points on the board, unlike revis who can only eliminate one weapon.
No because they already have a top 10 QB in place and Megatron makes the team that much more deadly. Megatron also has a much larger impact on the game because he can actually score points.
No because they already have a contending team in place and Andre Johnson is a WR who has a major impact on the game compared to a CB.
No it doesn't. The guys you mentioned, A) Don't play CB B) Were apart of contending teams C) Are worth max contracts because of the position they play and the impact they have on a game.
The Jets have a HOF caliber CB, without a QB, Pass rush, and Weapons on offense.
This is correct, however you don't solve this problem by paying Revis, you solve it by replacing everyone else. The only why you can replace everyone else is by trading Revis and not giving him the contract he wants, so that you can have money to pay the solid player you want to bring in.
The Jets record in 2012 is probably still 6-10 with a healthy Revis. Our pass defense was still 2nd in the league, and neutralizing a team's top target doesn't mean Jacksh!t if you can't score yourself.
Very clearly enunciated Carlito.
I would add to each of your "no because" points that the players in question did not have a history of wanting to be the highest paid player in the league (a) at their position and (b) possibly on their side of the ball entirely.
Darrelle Revis has traded himself as far as I am concerned as a direct result of his contract demands. Thank God we now seem to have some sanity in the GM position such that we recognize this and we are prepared to move on.
