It all depends on your perspective on what 2013 is. Revis would definitely help in 2014.
2013 has to be a "hold the fort" year - no big FA signings, look to build through the draft. The problem is that our FA shopping has finally caught up with us cap wise, along with some questionable extensions. Trading Revis hurts our cap for 2013 and leaves a major hole in the defense. Don't be fooled by the #2 passing defense stat. Teams could run on us all day and were leading for most of the games so obviously they weren't gonna be passing much. We need to get young, inexpensive talent in here via the draft and keep our high quality veterans.
