    Also littered with pro bowl players, all pros, quality starters and HOFs. A Revis trade could produce a couple of those while freeing cap room for additional acquisitions.

    Izdik has to at least try, speak with his agents and see where it goes. These posts saying to trade him for whatever we can get are ridiculous, we could end up with another Gholston.
    When has Revis ever been reasonable? He wanted $16 million 3 seasons ago. He wants more than Super Mario, he has said it. If he can take 5 years $60 million something like that then you probably keep him, but nothing points to Revis taking anything like that. He wants franchise QB money and has stated it.

    I think any reasonable person would like to keep Revis. However it is totally prudent to listen to offers now because this is the only time they will realistically be able to cover those bases and get some reasonable value.

    If we blissfully ignore the situation and next year at this time he is demanding money that just does not fit with what the organization can or is willing to do we will get dick all, perhaps a 3rd round comp pick the next year.

    Yeah, this is the year the Jets have to make a decision with the lack of the franchise option.

    Either move could be a smart move if done properly. The Jets could be in a good position by signing Revis to a longterm cap managable deal or trade him for multiple picks.

    We are not keeping Revis. We're either trading him or letting him walk in a year. That was the deal Tanny made when he gave Revis this contract. Do you people really think Revis is going to give up a chance at free agency to sign a nice safe cap friendly deal. Then you don't know Revis. Revis is for some team that thinks a CB can win you a SB, or a team that's just happy with having a marquis name on their team. They're out there, Revis will happily sign an extension with them, and I'll happily take the picks.

    Don't forget, after 2013 Aldon Smith and JJ Watt will both be getting new contracts which means the 'highest paid defensive player in NFL history ceiling' will rise. Revis will be looking for even more after that.

    if there's no market for revis now b/c his demands are way too high, that will probably be the case when he'd hit free agency next year anyway. at some point, he will learn that no team wants to pay him what he wants. it's better if revis figures it out now, so the jets can trade him to a team that is willing to pay revis 75% of what he wants.

    You forget that there are 32 owners out there, and they all know who Revis is, and they listen to ESPN. Someone will over pay him. I just hope it isn't us.

    based on what we know so far it won't be us. i hope they deal revis, use the pick on a qb, then use their own 2nd rounder on a good wr.

    So what should the Jets accept in return? I know they shouldn't give up a first ballot HOFer for anything less. What is the minimum they should accept?


    Everybody seems to want to trade him without considering what is coming in return.

    Speaking to CSN Philly, a team source "didnít rule out" the Eagles making a run at Jets CB Darrelle Revis.

    The Eagles have cap space to burn and a likely need at cornerback with both Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie doubtful to be back in 2013. Revis-to-Philly makes sense on paper, but new coach Chip Kelly could be reluctant to sign off on trading draft picks as he hunts for players who fit his unique system. Revis is also likely interested in heading to a team that will compete in 2013, and there's no guarantee the Eagles will.

    Posted this in the other thread, too.

    I hate "sources", and disagree that Revis wants to play for a contender.

    He wants to play for an ATM.

    If you look at the history of these trades, the team that acquires the all time player wins out. MOST OF THE TIME

    And please don't anyone provide examples of players that are anything less.

    When was the last time an "all time" player was traded?

    I've said for a couple months you can easily structure the trade based on a #1 this draft and a '14 conditional pick based on a new contract and '13 playing time. Obviously the more Revis plays and signs a contract the higher the pick.

    2013 is possibly the last season that Revis is a New York Jet.

    There is no way he's a Jet beyond 2013. Jets can't afford him, don't want to pay him, and he cares for nothing except $ at this point. You can't blame either side.

    Yeah but the teams that can keep other teams from scoring are the ones that win more often. Defense is important, let's not forget that.

    But I agree, if Revis thinks there's no limit to his worth he's about to be dealt a real harsh reality.

    If he gets dealt for a 2nd, he's going to be crushed.

    No team out there would do that.

    Give up a #1 draft pick in 2013 with the possibility of Revis being a one-year rental? That will never happen.

    A trade will not occur with Revis unless there is a long-term contract in place with the money Revis agrees to.
