OK, let's look closer at this:
We may have to give up, "potentially No. 31 overall and/or No. 34 overall in the 2013 draft." I would only give up one of these picks.
Salary: We let Rogers go: Rogers = $7,344,531 in 2013
Revis: Will be in the 9-11 million range.
We can certainly afford it esp. when you also factor in the following potential cuts:
(- $9,750,000) - gone; replaced by rookie
(- $5,016,668) - gone; replaced by Looney/Kilgore
(- $4,950,000) - gone; injury settlement; replaced by AJ & Williams is back
(- $4,933,333) - gone; replaced by Goldson (SS); FS battle = Spillman/Robinson/Culliver/high draft pick
(- $3,616,668) - gone; replaced by draft pick
(- $2,870,000) - gone; replaced by draft pick and Johnson/Fleming
- gone; replaced by high draft pick
- gone; replaced by Ian Williams
- gone; replaced by Lockett and high draft pick
(+ $4,000,000) - signed to 2 year deal for 8 million
(+ $7,250,000) - signed to 4 year 30 million
= we can do this! He can help shut down half the field (remember Deion Sanders?) and Revis has a BIG chip on his shoulder. We take him this year on his current salary, we are getting a veteran with a chip on his shoulder in a contract year playing against Richard Sherman's mouth x2 a year! And let's not forget, we'll probably negotiate for for a deal in the 10-million range d/t the injury and for HIM, a chance to play and win on a Superbowl team.
