Every April, I get into my Jet pre-draft mode...
Doing some research...
Looking over mock draft sites (like hailredskins.com mock draft database)...
Trying to get an idea of the "experts" concensus for the best pick for the Jets in the first round at #9...
You know, planning who the Jets might take, fantasizing about that future all-pro stud in a Jet uniform, like a kid looking forward to Christmas morning...
But instead, thanks to this "Revis Cloud" hanging over this pre-draft, all the planning, prognosticating, wishing and hoping is really completely moot...
Is Revis getting traded before the draft?
What picks will he bring?
This year's draft of next years?
If he's traded, do the Jets now need to draft defense even more?
Are the Jets going to trade up using this years Revis pick (or picks), or trade down and stockpile even more picks?
Are they going to pick #9 (their pick), or #13 (Buc's pick), both spots, or neither?
All the present mock drafts are pointless now...
My enjoyable annual April ritual has been reduced to an April fools...
One of those site's from the redskin blog has the following Jet/Buc scenerio..
What was exchanged in the big trade? Basically, it’s two separate trades:
1) Jets and Bucs swap 1st round picks.
- Jets get #13 overall, and a 2013 3rd round pick(#87)
- Bucs get the 9th overall pick.
2.- Jets deal Revis to Bucs:
-Bucs get Revis
- 2014 1st round pick
- 2014 Conditional 2nd round pick (if he plays “X” number of games in 2013)
- 2014 4th round pick
-2014 6th round pick
so why has the deal not been done yet? you are going by hearsay and "insider sources"-we have no idea what has been offered
if the jets were offered a first round pick for this draft and have not done it it makes no sense-
woody does not want revis and nobody but the bucs have even shown interest in revis
bucs can hold tight as the jets keep paying revis millions in roster bonus
You talk about hearsay and "inside sources", as if they are not to be believed, yet, you're going same route when you say that the Bucs are the ONLY team interested in Revis. None of us know what teams Idzik has been speaking to. We hear the Bucs, but that doesn't come from the Jets' people. Injury aside, if you think that only one team has interest in the best CB, you are really naive. The ONLY news that has come out about this situation, has come from the Bucs and Revis camps, along with the chosen few d-bag reporters.
i seriously dont get the people who want revis to stay and/or fail to see the DIRE NEED to get rid of him NOW, for anything we could get for him.
1. HE is GONE after this year anyway, and then we will get NOTHING for him
2. The jets will SUCK this year, making his contribution to this year's team unimportant
