we need to shore up our PASS RUSH...NOT our secondary

Baalke is smart, too many risks with Revis contract and his knee. You can't even franchise(clause in his contract that prevents it for those who don't know) him after the season so most likely it's a rental. Don't want to hear the 94 Deion comparison, it only took cash to get him and he was healthy.

He's worth a one year rental if the price is right. The 49ers wouldn't lose much by trading their original 2nd or one of the 3rds and some late round scraps for him. After the one year rental, Revis signs a huge deal with someone else and the 49ers get a 2nd or 3rd round comp. pick. This is the only way I see Baalke trading for him. The 49ers are smart enough to avoid paying a defensive player 16 million per year, so there is no way they trade for him as a long term solution.

Both need help. Agreed!

Much is on the coaching/scheme as well. No doubt quality personnel and a "rotation" will be a major focus this offseason.
The more I hear about the 49ers not pursuing or interested in Revis, the more I think they are indeed interested and are pursuing Revis. Baalke has probably named his price, the Jet's GM laughed, Baalke says "call me back if you change your mind". And this is where we stand today.

Absolutely! And they need to trade him ASAP for draft picks THIS year. And now Revis himself wants out. Hold those cards closely Baalke.
FWIW . . .

Appearing on NFL Live Wednesday, ESPN's Ed Werder predicted that the Jets will not get a first-round pick for Darrelle Revis.

"I think it's unlikely that the Jets can get a No. 1 pick," said Werder. "I think a lot of teams might consider giving up a (second-round pick) or less. The Jets are dealing from a position of obvious weakness. Two reasons: He's coming off ACL surgery in the final year of his contract. (And) his contract demands really have potential suitors worried the most. Teams know that if they wait a year, he'll become a free agent. They could get him for nothing." In addition to the 49ers and Falcons, Werder mentioned the Bucs and Lions as potential Revis suitors.

Give up a 2nd rounder for a one-year rental in a draft where most of the talent is in the 2nd and 3rd rounds? Basically they could be foregoing a potential long-term starter at CB, NT, WR or another position for a guy coming off a major injury, one that is potentially more severe for a cornerback, with no guarantee of him performing at a high level, only to see him walk off into the sunset at the end of the season. It'd be one thing if he was not coming off the ACL tear and had just played well, but you're taking a huge risk, even if he passes all medical tests, there's a risk that he simply doesn't perform as might be expected.


Screw that.

This is the biggest factor IMO. Jets have s**t for leverage in this situation. Even if the Jets do trade him somewhere, there is no guarantee that his new team can get him signed to a long term deal and that he won't test the market. He cannot be franchised according to his contract, so any team acquiring him is going to be in a very risky position.

...and THAT is why we are all of the sudden seeing all these reports of teams that are interested in doing a trade.

It was a NEW YORK paper who had the article this morning and now BOTH the 49ers and Falcons have responded by saying they have no interest.

Basically...the Jets are trying desparately to create a trade market where there isn't one. What that tells me is that he will in fact be traded and might be had for far less than some think.

We'll see tho.

Well...the cat is kinda out of the bag now.

The 49ers were somehow able to sell people on them wanting to keep Alex Smith and that he would NOT be vailable for free later in the offseason. Thats how they got what they got from the Chiefs.

The Jets have screwed themselves. The league now knows Revis will be traded no matter what. Revis won't be a Jet. That has screwed whatever leverage the Jets ever had.
