DeAngelo for Darrelle?

I'm one of, if not the BIGGEST DeAngelo homer on this site... Having said that see exhibits below:

Exhibit A- we already have two solid backs and lack corners

Exhibit B- The Jets lack a Big name solid back, and are trying to trade their star corner

Which leads me to

Exhibit C- This could be a shocker come draft day or perhaps before. The contracts would cancel each other out basically and with Darrelle's injury I'd be willing to say that it's an even trade.

Crazy yes... Possible yes and no... Does it make sense? Absolutely it does, and it takes Revis from a Divisional foe in the process.

It's been mentioned before.. but trading Deangelo actually cost money. Don't remember the specifics but because of signing bonus and stuff like that.

Simple answer, no.

Reason why, we can't afford his contract even if we were able to make the trade for him and it would take a first, a third, and Williams to land Revis. On top of that, we have too many needs to throw away draft picks on him. If you want a good corner, look no further than Xavier Rhodes.

Would I want Revis, yes; if he wasn't such an asshole.

No. We don't have the cap space and I don't want the constant contract headaches that Revis brings. Seems like the guy holds out or threatens to hold out every year. Plus, they're wanting a 1st round pick and then some for him, not a RB pushing 30 with an albatross of a contract. It's a bad deal for both sides.

The Bucs reportedly want to trade a first, a third, and a fifth for Revis, and the Jets are supposedly trying to get more out of them.

But yeah, they'd probably rather have an old, injury prone RB for Revis straight up.

Pretty sure that trading Darrelle would cost the Jets $ as well.

This possibility makes a lot of sense to me. On the flip side I could play Devil's advocate and say its a horrible idea. I'd just like to generate the discussion. It likely won't happen, but of all the trade propositions that have been mentioned in the media I haven't heard this one. (Not surprising because it involves a Panther) but at any rate, this is an obvious one for one swap.
Whoever stated that we'd have to give up more than just DeAngelo that's just crazy talk.

As for the cap situation... Give Revis DeAngelo's money. We get rid of "dead weight" as many fans put it here. We fill an actual need simultaneously. I'm just throwing it out there.

Maybe if somebody else other than me brought this up it would be received differently? Either way, it's out of the bag, and until Thursday I don't see any reason why we can't all have a healthy and respectful debate about it.

Its funny how the media always gets these Blockbuster trades wrong and the details wrong. DeAngelo isn't injury prone either, so lets keep up with the times and have valid points if we're gonna disagree.

I'm gonna laugh when he goes to Cincinnati for a 3rd rndr and conditional picks at the last second. There's always a team not in the reported mix that swoops right in for way less.

Personally if MUCH rather keep DeAngelo than get Revis. I do think its worth noting and bringing up the possibility which exists.
