There is no reason for saying NO to the best DB in the league. ACL injuries are not what they used to be...most players recover just fine from them, some even come back stronger.
I'd easily give the 32nd pick in the draft and considering how weak the draft class is this year - I'd give Alex Smith 32nd pick.
Let's remember - it is highly likely that cap will go up a lot in 2014 and with our revenues to hit sky-high at the new stadium, we can spend all of our cap. With Revis, we will not be one of the best defense, we will be the BEST defense and it won't be close.
Because the Jets want a 1st round pick....to me that pick is better spent on upgrading the defensive line, that IS the core of this team, the pass rush is what allows this defense to go. Giving up a 1st rounder is a tall price to pay for a cornerback coming off an ACL surgery, and if he happens to bounce on you in free agency, well, you've just given up a 1st round pick for a one-year rental, in effectively wasting that pick while teams have acquired players a few picks later that you could have used, that you'd have under contract for 3-4 years at a very low price.

Why not for a year or two if we can afford it? The cap is also going to skyrocket in 2 or 3 years I believe. By trading Alex, most of that cap space will open up, but I'd be afraid that we would lose Dashon.
