Obviously we have no idea what the internal situation is and how good/bad the relationship and dialogue between the team and Revis is.
But, would the Broncos trade a #2 and #4 or #5 for Revis and hope for the best knowing that they have a chance to a) win the Super Bowl and b) sign him to a long term deal? I think its a real consideration even if Revis doesn't sign an extension as a precondition for the deal.
I doubt they'll get a #1 though. You can't gamble with a #1 - a #2 you can a little. WIth what Revis brings, its probably worth a shot.
I think the Broncos would be the Jets best trading partner. If Revis was back there, the Broncos do not lose to the Ravens. Elway knows that, and he has a very short window with Manning.
I think a #2, #4 and #5 is feasible for 2013. Hell, the Jets could probably get a #2 and #4 this year, and possibly of #2 or #3 for 2014 if they want to go that route.
You make a very good point with a gamble on a #1. You just can't take that chance. A #1 needs to be a starter/solid performer for the foreseeable future.
