The Jets aren't going to deal Revis. The best CB in the NFL at age 27 isn't going anywhere. The Jets would spend the next 5 years looking for his replacement. We're on the right path. There is no need to freak out and change course. Trade 2 or 3 picks for a CB who wants a boat load of money. We have a plethora of draft picks to add talent and depth to this team. This how teams stay good for years is by drafting well and not picking up over priced players so that you can't keep your young players. This organization has come a long way in 2 seasons. Baalke and company are getting ready for the combine,watching player video and hopefully fielding calls about Alex Smith and a possible trade. Yes it stings to lose that way in the super bowl but I'm also excited about this offseason to see what Baalke and company can add to this roster.

Reading on NFLTR that the Jets are willing to make him the highest paid cornerback in the league. The article states they will pay him but not in that 16 million + a year which he is looking for.
lol no way do i want him at 16 a year when we can get sean smith at one third of that most likely
Of course you're all gonna want Revis. Dude is arguably the best corner in the league. He does carry baggage, though. He's a constant holdout threat. And he's already expensive as it is. He's coming off a major injury. Our corners had a rough time towards the end of the season but that's also because out d-line and pass rushers tired out. We need more depth at the line!! More consistent pass rush benefits the secondary.

there are a few factors that will affect this decision
-is revis healthy enough?
-how many years are left on his contract?
-is he going to holdout like he was threatening to do at the beginning of the season?
-do we want to deal with a big headed player?
Overall I think revis would be a final piece addition to our defense. Getting rid of alex's contract wont be enough tho and I think we already have too much money tied up in the defense esp. if we resign goldson. I say nay!!! too much risk and too many big contracts. in the next two years we still need to resign Justin smith, aldon, kaepernick, iupati, and crabs....and they will all need big contracts.
Man I agree with you alot but just imagine the 2010-2011 Revis on the 9ers Roster?
