If we do that, then we better start knocking these mid-late round draft picks out of the park if we want to fix the O, because we're going to have next to nothing to work with in free agency. Not to mention it could screw us over when guys like Wilkerson and Coples are looking for new deals in the future.
The guy simply isn't worth it. Certainly not to a team like us that is going through a rebuilding phase.
I'm fully aware that Revis is the best CB of this generation and when all is said and done, could be the GOAT at his position. But that doesn't mean I'm willing to pay him Tom Brady/Aaron Rodgers/Peyton Manning money. That would be beyond retarded.
That would all heavily depend on what the guaranteed portion of the contract, and how it is structured.
I fully agree the Jets should not overpay for Revis, but a contract can be structured to still pay Revis and still build around him as the team moves forward.
