I think we will have to resign him this year so as to prevent him from walking next year and receiving nothing in compensation.
To that end, we will need to craft a trade friendly deal that he would accept- maybe throw in the caveat that he could have some say as to where he is going with the exception of an Afc east team. Also make sure it heavily incentive laden based on performance with a lot of benchmarks to allow extra $$- this way it is to his benefit to perform to his max.
If all goes well he gets traded and we get lots of picks, or he decides to stay in which case we have a premier cb.
On the chance he falls apart - no harm no foul, by redoing his contract as a heavily incentive laden deal, if he flames out, we trade him next year for what we can and we get cap space to add new players.
What is the opinion of what I laid out????
That last thing Revis would accept is an incentive-laden contract.
It will be all about guaranteed money and a yearly salary of $15MM+.
