hey 16 pages of trade talk? what would happen if the people that matter in the situation, never even trade him?
i'm just saying.
They have to trade him. Some of the people on this site don't want that to happen but they really have no good choices here other than that. If he doesn't recover well we are screwed, If he does recover well we can't afford his price. No corner is worth $16 million. If we don't trade him and he walks we are the laughing stock of the league and we will get nothing in return for losing him. And there might even be a big cap hit. If we trade him now the market is skeptical and we won't get as much as we would if he was healthy. If we wait until he comes back and he is healthy we can trade him and get the most value but the 2013 draft will be long gone.
My thoughts are to try and trade him now and hope we can get a 1 and 3 for him. Maybe if a team has cap money they will consider it - it's certainly possible.
If we can pull that off and we can find a team willing to trade up for our #9 in the first we can move down to maybe #14 or #15 and pick up a 2nd round pick. That would give us 2 first round, 2 second round and 2 third round picks, And the nice thing is rookies don't cost as much anymore so our cap hit would be manageable. We could draft OLB's, S, CB, OG, T, TE.
Then we go after Moore at QB or maybe even talk to Seahawks about trading our 4th round pick for Flynn.
Finally, we let Keller, Landry, Greene, Moore walk and try to resign Bell, DeVito, Edwards. Not sure about Slauson.
No CB is worth $16 mil and the disruption it is causing. And Revis is my favorite Jet by far. Only other way is if he was willing to take less and his personality doesn't lend itself to that.
