Yes. The Jets got good value for an expensive player who could have walked as FA in 2014.
No. The Jets could have gotten a better deal or should have met his contract demands to keep him.
I am totally happy with this trade, the 13th overall pick and a 4th rounder next year that could escalate to a 3rd rounder, that's good compensation considering Mevis is coming off of major knee surgery and now he is someone elses problem.
If Mevis has a good year next year and proves he is back to form, what do you want to bet he holds out that following off-season for a new contract with guaranteed money....I almost feel bad for the Bucs.....
Great HOF CB coming off major knee surgery
Improving the team
Revis won't make this team 11-5 next season. The Jets will be average at best, with or without Revis in 2013.

Absolutely. I'm actually impressed, a week ago all Tampa was offering was a 2014 first, a 2013 third and fifth.
The 2013 #13 pick is worth more than a 2014 first and a 2013 third combined.
The 2014 conditional 4th is equal to or greater than the 2013 fifth.
So, on both accounts Idzik got them to give us more value. Dumb fans are crying about the amount of picks, but it really comes down to value of picks, because they can be traded for more if wanted, the most important thing to consider is that veterans almost NEVER get traded for first round picks, and it's even more rare to get a top 15 pick.
Idzik played this perfectly, when you consider all the variables that were working against the Jets.
He was never going to be on the Jets in 2014.
We need the draft picks and we need the future Cap dollars that Revis would have consumed. It's a Yes for me too.
the only thing i wish they did was get an additional fourth or fifth this year (to trade for ivory) i mean its something low in value to them. i guess they just wouldnt give it up?
it would have been like getting a first and Ivory this year and 3rd next.
Doesn't mean I don't like the trade -- just that it's 6 of one/half dozen of the other . . .
Just two months ago, a lot of us were saying we'd be happy with San Fran's two 2nd rounders.
Now we walk away with the 13th overall pick and a future 3rd?
Don't see how anyone could be so devastated by the compensation.
HoF CB at 16 million/year with threat of holdout every year or 1 year rental of said HoF CB + comp pick in 2015 vs. 1st and 3rd + cap room for 3-4 productive NFL players. I go for the latter 100 out of 100 times.
Hell-No! We are going to get 1 unproven rookie w the 13th pick from Tampa & we gave them a Pro-Bowl future HOF player thos feal stinks
I am ok with the trade, now lets just hope they use the pick correctly
Listening to everyone *****ing, I was starting to worry about Jet's fans intelligence. Looking at the poll, I feel much better.
Good job Idzik! Making something from nothing. Magic!
Jets were put in a bad spot. They didnt get much but what can ya do.
