What is he supposed to be a used car salesman selling something he does not value at 15 mill per to convince someone else to do so, plus give picks for the pleasure of doing so.
Comeon It isn't the New GM fault ( It was tanny for giving up the franchise tag) but no fan base is going to be able to handle losing a Revis(once a lifetime player) for anything less than a first. Unfortunately for him he going to take the blunt of the blame from the Fan base if Jets don't get anywhere close to that back for Revis.
That just might turn out to be the case. He doesn't sign with anyone , tests freeagency, leaves , and Jets are left holding the bag with a lousy late third round draft choice.
That would be hard on any fan base if that would happen to accept.
