Jets might want to trade Revis

68 posts in this topic

I live in New York. I see many Jets games every year. Revis is the second most overrated player in the entirety of football. He had a great 4 game stretch in 2009 (I think?) holding Moss, Owens and Johnson to almost no receiving yards. Since then he rarely covers opposing teams number 1 wideouts and often has safety help over the top. He hasn't been nearly as effective since the Jets defense lost their up-front pressure.

That may be so, but we have good up-front pressure and he'd be an obvious big upgrade from what we have, especially if we have to cut Gamble for money reasons.

Even if he did resign with us, his asking price would be absurd. One that we cannot afford when we need to resign Cam, Luke and Krakken relatively soon. I would not be willing to give up a 2nd rounder for a guy we'd only be guaranteed one year with - we have a Oline and WR problem to solve on offense.

Even if he panned out to be as great as the media advertises him to be, he'd hardly help us given our division and the amount of targets the elite QBs in the NFC have. I'd rather have 2 pretty good corners with captain in the slot than one superstar corner and nakamura's everywhere else.

hell no, for all the reasons you just said, plus the fact that we wouldn't be able to afford him when we finally go after a top WR, OL, or DT

a one-legged, blind, leprosy-ridden Darrelle Revis would still be an upgrade over what we have at corner right now

If my above comment didn't answer your question, if we cut Gamble and get Revis the net savings would be $2-3mil.

He'll no.

Would not give up a 2nd to have Revis for 1 year

His contract is ridonkulous. If it was as simple as trading him for a 2nd round pick then you'd be stupid not to...unfortunately not that simple.

    • This Quincy Adeboyejo looks good.  Top SPARQ, good vids around, seems like an interesting prospect at WR.      
    •   Sorry, but...IMO, if Allen can't really move outside, then I am not sure I want him at 8. However, I could see going with a DE that can slide inside. We just took Butler last year, not sure we need to go again this year. Especially at 8. We have to see what Butler has. Aaannnddd....we still have a shot at keeping KK. Drafting a DT, especially at 8, just does not make sense to me. Plus, we have Love on a 2 year deal. IMO, we need to let the DT position play itself out before we address it.   Now a WR at 8? That would be bold. Or do you mean in the 2nd? If so, I would not be adverse to picking a solid looking slot guy. I don't care about the route tree, as long as he has some wiggle, and good hands. Preferably a kid that returned punts. Those guys always have some wiggle. Or at least some of them anywho.   To be fair. Most coaches would play more rookies...if they trusted them. Rookies make mistakes. Coaches lose jobs when too many mistakes are made. Hence why most FO guys will take a well rounded vet over a promising rookie every time.   I don't care who you are. If your gonads ain't tingling at the thought of what this draft could provide? You may either be dead. Or you may just be too casual of a fan.      
    • are you guys saying he'll be corner going solely based off his combine stats and weight? why would he not be a S?
