    So, Mark Sanchez and a slew of Burn outs have cost us Revis?(merged REVIS x 100)

    Am I understanding this correctly? We're actually going to have to trade the best defensive player in the NFL - one of our best draft stories ever - because we've locked up too much money in Sh*tchez and a bunch of stupid name-contracts?

    No it's because Mevi$ is just greedy and has nothing to do with the stupidity of this franchise.

    can't the Jets get rid of Sanchez and Holmes after 2013 and free up about $17 mill? And Cro will count $9 mill against the cap in 2014 and Harris $5 mill (restructures). 2013 cap shape not good, but Revis isn't a FA until 2014 when things can be much, much better $ wise.

    Sanchez was the really bad contract.

    Around here, at the time, the Harris and Holmes contracts were good moves so we can't flip flop.

    Lets just have the best CB in the world play for the league minimum. He has already made enough money. Hell, he should just be a good guy and play for free.

    That's the only way people will be happy. It's greedy to want to get paid for what you are worth.

    Because Cromartie will take $8M/year and be happy... While Revis will hold out, want $18M/year, finally agree to 3 year deal worth $16M/year... still not be happy and then in 2 years will hold out again and want an even larger contract.

    Blame Rex and Tanny.

    They ruined this team in 2011.

    I have to believe Tanny cost us Revis with the way he wrote that deal. He is getting paid 9 mil not to sign a new deal IMO by his own team. Tanny essentially gave him almost no intensive to not use that stupid opt out clause.

    No, it's not because we've locked money up in them, it's because they suck and because we have zero depth and talent throughout the rest of the team. Make no mistake if Sanchez and Holmes and Keller and Greene were solid players and we had a good offense then extending Revis is a no brainer. But fact is they all suck. All of them. None are anywhere near what they are paid and expected to be. Mark is not a starting QB, so we need to find a new one. Holmes is not a #1 receiver, Keller is a one dimensional limited TE, Greene is a situational power back. We need to find quality replacements for all of them, as well as OL, LB, and S. To fill all these needs we need picks and time to develop them. Ain't no sense paying a CB top dollar for a team that's going to be rebuilding over the next 3 years when we can trade him for multiple high value picks to address all the holes.

    He's not worth the amount. He's a cornerback who did his ACL. That and he's free to listen to offers from the whole league next year. He's all about the money. We let him go now we can still get something for him.

    Or better this: you are ok with losing Revis and getting nothing in return besides some compensatory 3rd rounder.

    All so Jets fans can say they have best CB of ALL TIMES on their squad.

    Why is it 'greedy' to try to get as much money as someone will pay him?

    If you knew that you could get a raise by going to a different job, wouldn't you?

    And don't give me some BS about how 10 million should be fine instead of 15 million. To some starving villager you trying to make $150k a year instead of $100k a year is just as 'greedy'.

    Edit: I also don't understand how all of this stuff from the Jets gets out into the press. Letting a player find out they are shopping him before he needs to know is just dumb. Unless he has a 'no trade' clause in his contract he'd have to waive why the **** would you have a player find out about this until he needed to know? If they can't find a team willing to pay the right price what does it serve them to have him find out he's on the market?
