    Jets have to assume a posture of pre-injury revis. If they can't get someone to agree to that framing mechanism, they have got to decide on the odds that revis will be awesome again (imo high odds). Then. keep him. Sign him, let him play. If he is great again, then trade him at a premium.

    It's been a long grisly winter here in Edmonton and March is my least favourite month. On top of that I've had a horrid case of the flu the last week. Damn rights I'm thinking of beach.

    There would be a lot of Jet fans that would never forgive him for a deal like this. Especially after the Harvin deal.

    Would be a discrace.

    @NFLSTROUD: The Bucs have sent a private plane to pick up 49ers free agent S Dashon Goldson from California tonight, according to agent Ben Dogra.

    @NFLSTROUD: The Bucs hope to reach a long-term agreement with Goldson that could be announced as early as Wednesday.

    @NFLSTROUD: The Bucs used a similar approach to strike quick deals with WR Vincent Jackson, G Carl Nicks and CB Eric Wright last year.

    The problem is too many people are taking this article as if it is the word of God.

    It's a lazy TB writer who based his story off of a blog written by an even lazier national writer.

    There have been no "sources" that come close to suggesting TB has actually offered this deal to the Jets.

    It's all speculation by lazy, bad sportswriters.

    Nothing to see hear....lets all just move along.

    I think everyone is missing the point. Jets have to go with the highest bidder. If the highest offer is a 2nd round pick you have to take it. Why? Because if he's on the team next year we risk losing him for absolutely nothing. Ziltch!!

    It is what it is. Jets are not giving Revis 80-100 mil. And they also don't want to lose him for 0. You play the game and then take the highest offer. Also remember Revis hold the cards as well. Revis has to sign his name on the dotted line to an extension or noway is a team trading top picks for a 1 year rental.

    Its a tough trade and in the end we will never get real value for Revis because of the contract Tanny left us with plus he's coming off major injury and can't prove his health in time.

    Is a 2 and 4 better than keeping him for a year, finishing 5-11 and then losing him for nothing the following year?

    Who's to say we can't keep him and trade him during the season at the trading deadline. If Revis comes back and plays well his value well never be higher with teams with SB aspirations bidding against each otehr....

    I know it's unlikely, but why hasn't this been mentioned at all?

    A #2 this year and #1 next year works for me. But I suspect it won't happen until after the beginning of the regular season when he's proven back from injury.

    The important thing is Idzik doesn't get bullied by other teams, agents, or the media. We need to stick to our guns and get value (IMO multiple picks with at least a #1) or resign him during next season. He cant hold out so we still have leverage and time on our side. We can also trade him after signing him to a long term deal.

    The fact that it hasn't happened yet means something.

    Where is this info coming from?

    That post is dead on.

    Too bad you are in the vast minority here.

    The Jets are in absolutley no position to demand what they receive from other teams. They take what they can get and move on.

    Right. I also think late August is a possibility. He plays a decent amount in the 3rd preseason game, shows he's back, a contender loses a CB....hello 2014 1st and 3rd, 2015 4th.....

For a second round pick, I'd just as soon let him play out the season. We'll actually save some cap hit if I recall correctly.
    If we let Revis play out the season on his existing deal not only will he at the most bring us a 3rd round comp pick if he leaves (more likely a 4th) but he will also count $9 million in dead money in 2014 which will screw us big time. That's why the Jets need to take the best offer, whatever it is, and move him asap.

    Disagree, there are several factors you have to look at.

    1) Revis, even injured is a generational CB talent.
    2) You get a full year of him next season which helps the team a lot.
    3) If the team is tanked you could still possibly trade him during the year next year.
    4) We could still sign him after next year.
    5) If he signs elsewhere we would most likely get a 3rdf round comp pick, depending on who else we lost or signed.
    6) You have to not cave in if the value is not there, especially for a new GM. Cave on this trade and everyone and their dog will be low balling you from now on.

    If Revis came back and played well next year and the jets were still intent on dealing him they'd get at least a 2nd rounder before the trade deadline imo. Sometimes there are a lot of factors that make 'nothing' better than very poor value.

    But it's not Zilch. You'll get a 3rd comp. pick for him and have a chance to trade him in season. A contender loses a corner for the season and Revis is playing well...Then the Jets have the leverage.

    Personally, I would rather keep him another year and get a 3rd comp. instead of giving him away for a 2 and a 4.
