The distractions will outweigh the benefits. It is more like can the jets get Revis to talk to a potential trade partner for a team that he might not want to play for. While the jets can trade him without his permission, no team will trade for him if he does not want to go there. Revis is not some joe blow back up being traded for a conditional draft choice. The jets can not even release his medical records to another team without his permission.


    As far as working out he won't be cleared for contact till mini camps, the new team can do a mri on the leg to be assured that it is healing per schedule but they wont be able to see him cut at full speed.

    Does anyone know if Schiano changed Tampas D from the zone coverage that they have run since Dungy? Because if he hasn't, Revis will be a useless, overpaid zone CB.

    Just a question because everyone throws Tampa as an option because they have cap room.
    MY understanding is Tampabay plays both man to man and zone packages in the secondary. They aren't a cover two defense anymore or a straight man to man defense.
    Still the Buccanears would probably have no interest in trading for D Revis . Most likely would try to move up in draft for the top CB, than going to the way more expensive route in FA.

    You guys are making this way too complicated. If the Jets want to trade Revis and a team wants Revis a trade will be made, with or without a new contract. The trade parameters agreed upon by the Jets, the trading team and Revis camp will include whether Revis resigns with the team after '13 (if a new contract isn't agreed upon with the trade). If Revis resigns the Jets get additional conditions (pick(s) in '14). The trading team can also include a % of plays Revis plays in '13. Again, the higher the % the higher the '14 pick(s).

If you were better at your job than anyone in the world wouldn't you want more money? Revis isn't the problem, Revis is part of the solution. The fat trimming has already started with the pace, Scott, smith and smith cuts. Sign Revis long term so these know-it-all fans can find something else to complain and whine about.
    No you don't understand. A CB is not worth either franchise QB level money, nor to be the highest paid defensive player. The position even with a potential HOF player, is not that valuable. Period. Paying him that type of money is the dumbest thing this organization could do.

    Sherman is on his rookie deal...Presenting that number to Revis as some sort of a lesson would be laughable.

    Agreed...He's certainly very valuable but not $16 mil a year valuable.

    No you don't understand. He is a lockdown corner in an era that heavily favors passing offenses and penalties that prevent dbs from being able to play defense. I guarantee that after the injury his asking price has gone down enough to satisfy you SOJ fans. And the argument that we need that cap space is beyond uninformed. We are in cap hell because we paid scrubs with contracts suitable for probowl talent, not the JAGs that they are. The process has begun to rectify that so step away from the ledge. 31 other teams would LOVE to "overpay" for a CB that is an "insignificant" position. You all act like you know everything yet every offseason scrub corners get top dollar because the position is in DEMAND. A corner that locks down top end receivers week after week is way more important than you guys give credit, you've been spoiled. Cro played awesome this year, but he's still not mentioned anywhere near Revis in terms of play in NFL circles. With Revis we have the best corner tandem in the NFL on a team that wants to blitz. Revis isn't the problem, Revis is part of the solution, accept it and move along.

    How can you guarantee, are you one of his agents?
