Examine the current situation. The Bucs are willing to give up their first two draft picks in 2014 for a player that's rehabbing a major injury AND will be a FA in less than 12 months.
You think Revis' value and the Jets' leverage will go down in a few months once Revis proves he's healthy and playing at a high level? If anything, his value will go up.
Either stay with the Jets and earn $6 million coming off an injury with no further guaranteed money ( injury risk w/no guarantee not very smart)
Take $11 -12 million per year with $30 - 40 -million guarantee from alleged unsatisfactory trade partner.
Are you really worried?
Why is everyone pretending like they know exactly how the rookie quarterback class will turn out in 2014? All it takes is one or two injuries, a down year, and everything changes.
Future picks are most certainly valued one round lower for the shear fact that the team has to wait a full year before it can capitalize on the trade. Not to mention all of the unknown variables and circumstances which can alter perceptions greatly.
If they are at a 1 and 2 now, they will be offering more come draft day... They need to sell tix....
Personally, I'm totally against any offer that is limited to a single pick. If we can get a 3rd this year and 1st next year, I'd be much happier. 1 & 2 next year is good, but I'm not blown away by it either.
I think the injury and his asking price are scaring teams off. Luckily, knees heal and markets correct. Time could certainly benefit the Jets.
agreedI think izdik is playing very tough considering the little leverage he has.. If he pulls off what the article says I think he did a great job with the craphand he was delt..
for nowBut play to tough and stay in the game too long and we can lose big.. As mentioned bucks are only team showing major interest..
And for Tampa, there is no guarantee that there won't be,There is no guarantee teams will coming later..
But lets say he is playing at a high level early and teams want him. Revis and his agents probably will want more $ than they do now. Figuring his value is as high as it was before he got hurt. Teams arent going to want to pay revis top dollar and also up a hoard of picks. By then Revis may not agree to sign until after next year, thinking he only has to tough it out rest of the regular season (jets arent making playoffs).d then will have a lot more teams interested in him when those teams only have to pay him ,and not a draft pick ransom to the jets.He will surely get more on the open market.
its a crap shoot if we wait, odds not in our favor if we do.
I wouldn't take it as gospel, but I have no reason to think he is misleading us. Purposefullly or otherwise.
If the offer is on the table, take it, if you can't fit Revis in take the picks 2013 is a bust anyway, trade down.
According to that article Revis has been paid $32 million over the last two years, altogether. Wow. Sounds like he already is the highest paid defensive player. He is a greedy bastard and I'm sure Woody's hand is still stinging from signing those checks.
