    don't forget your fellow trolls Tex and patsfanken (who welshed on a thousand dollar bet that Matt Hoyer would be getting snaps for your Cheats) not to mention the poster who demanded that the Jets draft Matt Leinart to be their franchise QB, whoever that poster was

    Really when you have the worst Qb situation in the Nfl, right there says you have the worst situation . Don't forget Raiders will have 70 million in cap space in 2014. Thirty million more than the next team in the nfl.

    Not to mention are going to beat the snot out of the Jets again.

    What's that "beating the Jets" trophy look like again?

    And your QB isn't exactly the second coming of Johnny Unitas. Plus, if a team could spend itself to a championship, the Redskins would have oodles of them.

    Not only that, but what are the odds the Raiders actually spend all that money wisely??

    No one knows what raiders have at QB but we all have seen the Jets Qb play. They are that bad that I can say with confidence Raiders Qb's will be a lot better than that.

    Raiders will be built through the draft but 70 million dollars is still 70 million dollars . Can do a lot of great things with that much cap space. As Great as the 49ers and Seattle roster is with youth. They can't afford to keep all those players. Having 70 million dollars you can pick up some very good players to go with the guys you draft.

    Not me ... I'm loving that Idzik yanked his Big Balls out and has them sitting on the table waiting for Tampa's draft picks to measure up to equal weight

So Tampa can wait for that mystery team to come in and see if they dare offer anywhere near tampa's offer.. If so what is that team waiting for? Time is running out, if they wanted revis that bad they would have been involved already.. It stinks there is not a bidding war for revis, jets would be in much better situation.. Instead we have 1 team bidding against themselves
    If the deal falls through with the Bucs, here's the deal for Idzik to offer Revis (just throwing it out there to see if it sticks):

    Tear up the old contract. The new one is:

    • 2 years, 27 million, all guaranteed
    • 2013: 2 miilion base salary, 10 million signing bonus, salary cap = 7 million
    • 2014: 15 million base salary, salary cap = 20 million


    Revis gets: 12 million dollars this year. Not bad in this marketplace and twice what he is due to make now. Next year he gets 15 million or a new deal from someone. It's not the long-term security he wants, but it means he'll hit the marketplace in no later than 2 years (only 1 year past schedule), still young enough to possibly get that one last big deal he's looking for.

    The Jets get: Revis for this year at a reasonable salary for a player of his caliber, without a significantly higher cap hit. More importantly, they hold his rights for one more year and have a chance to trade him next year, when his stock will presumably be higher or extend him themselves.

    Someone will probably poke some holes in this, but it makes sense to me this late in the day!

    Interesting take from Brian Basset over on theJ---Blog criticizing everyone's favorite Florio:

    Accusations are now flying that the Bucs might have committed tampering by already reaching parameters of a deal with Revis’s representatives. - Per Mike Florio at PFT. - It’s an open secret in league and media circles that the Bucs will pay Revis the deal he wants, worth $15 million or more. Some league insiders believe that the Buccaneers and agents Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, who worked together to bring Vincent Jackson to Tampa last year, have worked out the parameters of the contract Revis would receive. Absent express permission from the Jets, that could amount to a clear case of tampering.

    Tampering is a common occurrence in the NFL, and is a pet peeve of PFT. They harp on this topic all the time. But is this an example of biting the hand that feeds PFT? The guy who two days ago was reporting that the compensatory hang-ups were squarely on the Jets side (gee where did that come from?) and who has seemingly waged a shadow war for the sides aligned against the Jets … now writes this? What gives?

    No announcement has been made about the Jets allowing Schwartz and Feinsod openly speak with the Bucs, but based on some of the developments that PFT has posted, it is not much of a leap to assume that PFT would know had there been such an authorization. Even if the Jets haven’t authorized it, it is safe to assume that some backdoor or coded conversations have taken place between the agency and Tampa Bay to keep the team interested all this time.

    It’s possible that there is around $5-6 million worth of “found money” up for grabs in 2013 (as opposed to waiting until 2014) for the player and the agency. Could the slight risk of getting slapped for tampering outweigh the multi-million dollar reward for pressuring a deal?

    In some weird way, I’m tempted to ask if this another gambit. Is someone behind the scenes playing with fire to (yet again) create urgency on the Jets part?

    Would publicly voiced concerns about tampering (which will spread all over the web and news from PFT) give the league office an opportunity to start digging into the matter? Would such an investigation potentially impede a transaction between the teams due to an ongoing investigation? Would fear of the deal falling apart be another dirty tactic to get the Jets to cave in?

    It’s risky, but they’ve tried everything else so far … why not try this?

    Here's the write-up he's referring to:

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 10, 2013, 1:34 PM EDT

    Sure, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano at one point refused to mention the name of cornerback Darrelle Revis, for fear of crossing the league’s ever-amorphous tampering line. Other than that, the Bucs haven’t been bashful about their interest in one of the top defensive talents in the game.

    It’s an open secret in league and media circles that the Bucs will pay Revis the deal he wants, worth $15 million or more. Some league insiders believe that the Buccaneers and agents Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, who worked together to bring Vincent Jackson to Tampa last year, have worked out the parameters of the contract Revis would receive. Absent express permission from the Jets, that could amount to a clear case of tampering.

    Then there’s the team’s website. As flagged by the folks at JoeBucsFan.com, the Buccaneers’ official online destination includes this headline on the right rail of the site: “Buccaneers still in for Darrelle Revis.” While the link leads to an NFL Network video, the presence of those words on the Bucs’ official website is a little jarring.

    Of course, the Bucs can tamper all they want, as long as the Jets don’t plan to file tampering charges. The fact that the Jets haven’t cried foul underscores the idea that the Jets want to trade him — and it highlights the reality that the Jets can’t afford to alienate the only team that wants Revis.
