The patience that Idzik is showing seems to really be the right strategy.
Its almost like actual grownups are in charge of the Jets!
We might actually be able to keep Revis for for a non-outrageous amount.
That would be the most amazing coup if it came to be!
Idzik would come out a hero with an accomplishment simply by being patient and letting the market go to work all around us. Just watching and waiting, letting the market set itself and letting players realize what types of compensation are really available at this point.
Revis' dollars have to be coming down...Probably a $10 Million dollar player, if that, now
(phone rings) "Hey Darrelle, it's John Idzik. We're ready to extend you and pay you. In fact, we think you're not only 20% better....or 50% better than Nnamdi Asomugha. We think you're TWICE as good....so we're ready to pay you TWICE what he makes. So what do you say...$6M per year....now, do you want 4 years or 5?"
Revis should assume his own injury risk for the rest of his football career and sign a succession of one year contracts. He is going to hold out every year he is healthy or not under duress from a hold-out clause.
So in essence he would be doing the NFL a favour if he stuck to one year contracts and have a yearly bidding war for his services.
