So you want to tie up 10+% of your cap on a CB?
According to someone familiar with his thinking, Revis is seeking a contract similar to or “just north of’’ the deal the Bills gave defensive end Mario Williams — six years, $96 million with $50 million guaranteed. That is the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.
Only a top 5 quarterback should be paid like this.
Players like Revis are typically the achilles heel of the teams they play for. One man show. Yes, he's one of the best players we've ever drafted. No, he'll never help us win a SB.
If he prioritized winning and took a modest salary to enable the team to build around him, then it'd make sense to keep him. He's not interested in that.
