Two sources tell Yahoo Sports the 49ers are "poised to make a run" at Darrelle Revis after stockpiling 15 picks in the 2013 draft.
The Niners only have 12 picks right now, but will get three more via the compensatory process. Per Yahoo's Jason Cole, the 49ers have considered pursuing Revis and not extending his contract, forcing Revis to play out 2013 at $6 million via bonuses and salary. Cole suggests Atlanta could make a Revis run, as well. If San Francisco acquired Revis, it'd likely surrender one of its two top-34 picks, or perhaps even both. Jets GM John Idzik should be on the phone with 49ers GM Trent Baalke. Idzik needs roster-building pieces, and Baalke has them
Im fine with that cuz we have a s**t load of draft picks and lets be real we arent going to use them all anyway and i dont want to pay him 16 million a year and risk losing one of our guys like Crabtree, Anthony Davis or Iupati
I think that'd be absolutely retarded to give up a Top 60 pick for a guy who would only be there for a year. Its not something that I see Baalke doing....it doesn't mesh at all with what his philosophy has been thus far. Also, what's to say that Revis simply doesn't holdout like he's so fond of doing, now you get a rental for a partial season......bad idea.
I see what you guys are saying here...
But at some point, the great ones want to win, more than the $$. Maybe his holdout shenanigans is just about his frustration with the dumpster fire that is the Jets. If we trade for him, we can get him on the deal he has now (1 year/$6M) which is a bargain or tell him if he wants to be a part of a winner that he better take less.
I mean, look what we did with the #29th last year, even if it's only one year, at least we can carve out half the field. Who knows.
But what we do know (or we think we know) is that Baalke shops at the Dollar Store, not Sacks Fifth.
