    Precedence Set with Revis Trade

    Its not just that it was our only option trading Revis...the precedence has been set to all players on the roster and future players to join, that the Jets aren't going to be held hostage and forced to overpay players.

    The only player I would ever want to drop all that money is a great QB, other than that, everyone should be paid accordingly.

    Jets should have paid Kendall a few years back. He still had mileage, and i never understood that.

    It got personal with management with many negotiations, Kendall was one, it also happened with Leon...😞

    As far as I'm concerned, THIS was the biggest failure of Tannenbaum.

    The connection I haven't seen anyone make is that Tannenbaum also got Revis to agree to the condition that made it impossible to hold out at any point during the contract (or have extra cheap years added). Do you think Tanny really offered to forgo the franchise tag for nothing? Do you think slapping the franchise tag on Revis would have accomplished anything if his reaction was just to hold out - perhaps for a full season like his uncle did?

    Tanny made mistakes and deserved to be let go, but let's not paint him to be that stupid.

    He had absolutely no, zero, nada, zilch reason to extend him. He thought Sanchez was the 2nd coming of Peyton Manning and wanted to lock him up. Well he locked him up alright.

    The 2009 draft and 2010 draft are killing this team right now.

    NOTHING to show for it except an OK DB.

    Revisionist claptrap.

    Kendall was horrific after he left.

    Leon did jack and **** after we let him go.

    And Mawae, the cancer of the locker room by that point, was decent, but far from special in his leftover time in Tenn.

    Stop whining about old Jets cast aside. Ask the Pats if they'd have lamented letting this has beens and nevr-was players go.

    Hint, they wouldn't.

    This and Sanchez are pretty neck and neck. I've defended Tannenbaum for years. And all told, he did a pretty good job. His strategy of just putting off problems though eventually came to a head and now we're suffering for it.

    Kendall wasn't nearly as horrific as Adrian CLarke was. There are times to play hardball and times to compromise - Tanny tried to be Mr. Tough Guy at the wrong time with Kendall when the problem could have gone away for $1m, which he arguably promised him. Adrian Clarke was coming off a futures contract. There was nothing - other than wishful thinking - that suggested he could be a starting Guard in the NFL.

    You play hardball when you have leverage, not when you have a steaming pile of dogsh!t behind the guy you are screwing over.

    Just watch revis with Tampa on the pressers.

    Im so glad he is gone.

    He is planning his holdout already.

    Agreed...we could have used Kendall and possibly even Mawae for 2 years more , each. Maybe 1 for Kendall.

    That said...it is time to move on.

    GO JETS!

    Agree with this, but the other points are valid.

    DB is a position of strength for us right now, pair that with contract issues and injury status, I'm fine with the trade. Do wish the Sanchez throw in talk was true...
