As for who said about the 16........how many times have you guys said PAY him basically whatever he wants and you "don't let a once in a lifetime player go" bull$hit. That intimates you're on board with giving him whatever he want, so no.....I'm not going to search through 17 pages in this thread to look for the statements. We all know he wants 16+. Stop acting like what he said in 2010 doesn't still count today considering he's demanding more money every 1.5 years on average.
Since you won't do it, I'll do it for you. Notice the bold text.

If the Jets are getting back serious PROVEN talent in return, I am much more willing to listen. But these are fans talking, and that is just a ludicrous trade for the Cardinals.
You will not find a trade that works out well for both parties when a potential HOF talent is being traded. It's just not going to happen. And with the Jets recent drafting history, I'm not too optimistic. What I am annoyed by is Woody willing to trade for Tebow to fill seats but the giving away home grown talent for money reasons. Figure something out. Revis wants $16 mil a year but he will be very much challenged to find that anywhere. Jets need to find a way to make Revis fit, not trade him away. Jets are making some cap room this season. Holmes will be gone next season. Sanchez will more than likely be out too. The money can be found and for a player like Revis, it needs to be.
And if he ends up on the Pats somehow after this? Not only will I be done with the Jets, you can guarantee Brady another ring.

Revis can say he wants the sky and the moon, that doesn't mean he's going to end up getting it. I've never once said Revis should get every penny that he asks for. In regards to a "hometown discount" why should he give the Jets a hometown discount? What good does that do for the player? After what the NFL owners did in 2011 I sure as hell wouldn't give a team a hometown discount. This is Revis' last chance at a big payday before he turns 30. If Revis gave the Jets a hometown discount does that mean after Revis starts to decline towards the end of the contract that the Jets will give him a bonus for his years of service? Anyway this is the reason they negotiate. Neither side gets everything they want nor should they. Maybe if the GM Woody hired hadn't given a certain player a contract extension last offseason after that player had a bad 2011 season, we'd have more money to play with when it comes to re-signing Revis. No the only thing Revis has done since signing his extension is to continue to be the best CB in the NFL. I don't care how much he complains in the media, as long as continues to be the best CB in the league.

At least try negotiating with Revis. Idzik just got the job, he didn't have time to speak with Revis' agents and see what type of numbers it will take. I would pay him $12-14 mil a season, that would comfortably make him the highest paid CB in the game.
I would trade Cromartie, which saves over $8 mil in cap space for us this season, and saves like $10-9 mil in cap space. In 2014 we could also release Sanchez and Holmes which saves a lot. We could also release David Harris for a saving of $5 mil.
Our cap situation isn't bad after the 2013 season. They can afford to pay Revis, especially if they traded Cromartie who's value is at its highest. I think Revis will be great in his 30s as well, his flawless technique and smarts will keep him great.

He isn't going to get $16 million a year by the way...like 0099 wrote somewhere it's more realistic to see him make between $12-14 million, both sides are going to make concessions (as it stands in every negotiation). I see no problem paying the best CB in the game that kind of money

revis never held out to be the highest paid D player in the league. he held out to be teh highest paid CB. I have no problem making him teh highest paid CB.
right now he and aso are tie at 12 mil a season. If he wants 13 i'd give it to him. Mario is making over 19. I don't think revis can ask for 7+ mil over the 2nd highest paid CB
So you can take me, Chaos, Harlem, 0099, and 115 off your list of people who've said "pay him basically whatever he wants." None of us has said that or anything like that.
