TB coach Greg Schiano would not discuss Jets CB Darrelle Revis, but it's clear the Bucs are not trying to fast track an agreement.

Schiano: "The reality of the game is this is a performance based game. You've got to win. They're not married to me....''
Schiano: "You've got to win or I'm not going to be the coach. Everybody in this game gets that.''
Schiano on whether he wants CB Eric Wright on the team. "Again, if he can help us win I do. We've got to see...''
Schiano: Certainly he's athletic enough to help us win. Is there another option that can help us win more? That's how I look at it.'
Schiano: "My whole thing is if you have a player under contract, well then you're in the position of advantage...''
Schiano: "...You don't move quickly until you know what's best for your club.''
Bucs WRs did not fumble the football once in 16 games, Schiano said. impressive.

When local media discuss Revis' demands for the Jets, they say he's looking for the largest contract in football for defensive players, somewhere between 15-16 $Million
Today, this is what Mehta says what Revis will need form The Bucs
Not sure why the media here hates the Jets so damn much....f-ing joke reading their BSThe Buccaneers will likely pay Revis an average annual salary in the neighborhood of $12 million-$13 million in a long-term deal, according to sources.

If he would really only sign for 12-13 million (which I'm not sure about) and a big reason we're not signing him is Woody (which I totally believe), then that's horrific.
I've been saying this for weeks. I guarantee you Revis isn't asking for 15-16 mil because of one the injury and two corners don't make QB money. Woody just doesn't wanna deal with Revis anymore because of the holdout issues, that's all. Do I blame him? Yes. Revis is and was only doing what's in HIS best interest. Now because of that Woody painted him to be a monster and most of you ate it right out of his hands.
You don't trade the best player in your franchises history, you just don't. Time to join the "woody sucks" bandwagon and get a refund for your "trade Revis" ride.

I understand my rankings are skewed because I didn't see Namath, Maynard, etc play. But the fact is he is Deion level at Corner. Namath wasnt Montana or Manning. Maynard wasn't Rice or Calvin Johnson. That's not a knock on them they were HOF players. But Revis is, in my opinion, on a completely different level of play than they were at their positions. You can dislike the man, I can't say I liked all the holdout BS, but he fact remains we are a better team with Revis than unproven draft picks that we'll pray become 50% of the player he is.
Did you dislike his rookie holdout the most, or one of the two since that time? Revis may have something real special planned for the 2013 holdout.
In this article he points out, for various reasons, the market price of a cornerback has gone down quite a bit. If Jason is correct (which he usually is), regardless of who Revis signs his next contract with, he is not likely to cash in for as much as he had hoped. It is entirely possible that if the Jets re-sign Revis, it will be in the $12M-$13M/year range.
Obviously I know we need a lot of players but safety was the wrong position to bring up. We made it to the AFCCG with Jimmy and Eric Smith back there. Do we need to trade Revis to regain a player of Jim's or Smiths talent? No, no we do not.
A spotty 2010 with no INTs, a so-so 2nd half of 2011 (with some knee problems IIRC, dont know if it was the same knee he injured), a handful of games in 2012...
Other CBs have allowed fewer yards per pass than Revis in recent years (Samuel, Sherman) and perhaps the fact he hasn't been dealt yet is a reflection of that
Just as the younger crowd may over rate players of their (our) era the older crowd over rates players of their era. Let me ask you this, who out of the older crowd was happy to see Namath in a different uniform? No one?
