The drawback to him will be his contract demands that will limit our compensation we will be offered
My take on this is that I don;t believe a team will trade a 1 and a 2 for revis, especially SF who has 4 guys who have made the probowl or all pro FA in the next two years plus Kapernick.
But I suspend my belief for this mock. My reasoning is that just because a you and jet fans think he will be at 100% does not make it so. The great majority of players who have had ACL surgery in the last few years say the first year back they are less than 100%. Then this trade throws in the question mark of that he can not even work out for the 9ers before the trade.
now if this trade was for next years #1 and #2 i would certainly find it more reasonable that SF would do this after Revis has been in TC and working out.
1. They are already stretched to the limit in the next two years just keeping the team together. All these cheap picks will help them do that.
2. Revis will not be ready to work out until much after the draft.
3. the majority of players after having ACL surgury are not 100% the next year. so if the purpose isto rent him for one year, most likely they will be renting a guy not at 100%
