If you think giving a cornerback 16 million dollars per year when you don't have any offensive players to speak of is the right way to rebuild then I don't really know what to say. That is probably the stupidest thing I have ever heard. He's a DB who wants QB money. He's not getting it, and more importantly, he's not worth it.
talent and value are two completely different things. the issue here is that revis' talent is way higher than his value to an nfl team. he wants to be paid based on his talent, which tannenbaum did. now, gms want to pay revis based on his relative value to an nfl team, and he's 'upset'. this is a sobering realization for him, that he's not 'worth' nearly as much as other elite players at other, more important positions. the nfl is clearly a passing league where the best teams outscore their opponents and occasionally stop them on defense. this means no nfl team will pay one cornerback $16 mil/yr when they can still be beaten by rbs, tes, and slot wrs.
