Yes....Revis USED TO lock down one side of the field but he also demands the money of two players which the team CAN NOT afford & we have no idea if he's worth it or not coming off the ACL injury. You guys are all gung-ho on paying him top dollar when he's nothing more than a question mark because of what he was able to do in the past & want to trade away the guy that gave us a better dfense than when he was here. In what world does that make ANY sense? Revis' camp is making it clear he wants $16 million per year. I don't give a flying fvck who he THINKS he is.....he's NOT worth it. He's nothing more than a legend in his own mind.
I agree with much of the above, I'm ok with top end CB money - Not ok with highest paid defensive player / QB money. Everyone knows that revis's skill set is elite and far above any other CB in the league but his cost is just way to high. I really don't blame revis either, he knows someone will give him what he wants. Might as well make as much as you can while you can but as far as the jets go, 16 mill a year for a cornerback is only going to hurt the team that is willing to pay him what he wants. Revis is one of my favorite jets but his contract demands are just going to hurt the team. At 15-16 mill a year we can get 2 or 3 quality players. And if we were to trade revis, not only would his salary free up the room to sign some more quailty players, he would also give us some high quality draft picks. Dealing him could help the jets potentially land 5+ starters depending on how the jets draft. I could understand signing revis if the team had a better roster and a better cap situation but the gambling the future for now / tannenbaum mentality has hit the wall. This is the consequence. Its a bummer but it is what it is. All I am saying is that idzik better have an idea what he is doing and get the most for revis he can. This fanbase is going to flip if revis is had for just a 2nd rounder or something absurd like that.
