49ers interested in trading for Revis (link provided)

I think 99% of the players in the NFL would play anywhere for Joe Flacco money

Revis when healthy is the real deal as a player; but he is never satisfied with anything; he is like a child stuffing his mouth full of cookies while eyeing the next unopened box.

@edwardethan Jets could have pulled trigger on Revis deal tonight with #Bucs but Owner wants more
damn, Bucs were trying to land Revis AND Goldson? Where the hell are all these Florida teams getting this money?

I dont want him because of the cost...but I am not sure where this idea is coming from. The guy has only played for one team ever, its not really his fault that they are terrible now. In fact when he resigned with them a few years ago they were a contender. Sure he held out for more money...but tons of guys do that. Seems like you painting him with a pretty wide brush there.

Name me 4 high dollar players on either Tampa or Miami's roster...There is your answer.

Tampa has 1 in Vincent Jackson, Miami has 1 in Wallace....cant think of another.

QB's they have are cheap...RB's..cheap...couple of middle tier names on their Defenses..but nobody making P. Willy money.
Double

He's a decent source when it comes to free agency and yeah, I buy that the Jets are being picky. From what was said yesterday, Tampa had a good offer on the table, Jets balked, which tells me that Tampa wasn't offering a 1st rounder and the Jets really want a 1st rounder, especially after the Percy Harvin trade and people coming out of the woodwork with the "you can't trade Revis for less than Percy Harvin" rhetoric.

Tampa Bay
Gerald McCoy
Vincent Jackson
Donald Penn
Carl Nicks
Eric Wright
David Joseph


Next year they have to re-sign Josh Freeman.



Miami on the other hand, really doesn't have any large contracts not including their new signees, they dumped their biggest yesterday in Karlos Dansy.

This - is a joke. Is Revis all-world? He sure seemed like it before he got injured. Will he be again? Time will tell. Based on fiscal reasons only, I don't think he's a good pickup for the 49ers. Someone pointed out that if you have 10 players making $8 million a year, you then have 43 guys to pay with $53 million. To us average Joe fans, that sounds like truckloads of money. In the world of the NFL, that's a 1 player contract (see: Harvin, Percival). Which 10 players on the roster do the 49ers give that $8 million a year to? Once that is figured out, then you know what else you have to work with.

The key to the 49ers staying relevant for the next decade is draft and inexpensive free agents. The FO manages the cap well, and (hopefully) will continue to do so. Players that left the team yesterday can be replaced - either by someone already on the roster (Celek - Walker, Soap/RJF - Ian Willaims), through the draft, or an inexpensive free agent. I'm not panicking by any means. IMVHO, those who departed were accounted for before they left. I think there's more depth on this roster than people think. Are there options already in SF to replace Goldson? Sure - move Cully, see what Robinson can do. Is there a FS available in FA? Sure - Reed, Landry, Woodson. What about the draft? You bet! Tons of talent there.

Well, what about RJF/Soap? The 49ers have already extended Ian, so they certainly feel that position is answered. Will they draft DL? Count on it. There's FA's out there to spell Cowboy, too, even though I'm not a huge fan of the flashy names - Abraham, Seymour.

I guess my point after all that is this team is in solid shape, with a little wiggle room under the cap, and ton of draft picks, and are again considered a premier place for free agents to come and have a better than average chance of winning a Championship. You want the megasuperdeluxe payday? Chances are you're not going to get it in San Francisco. Want a chance to play for multiple championships? Come on down!!

Jets Owner is gonna regret not taking that offer, without knowing more details, I'm guessing it's better than what the Niners would've offered. Bucs seriously trying to upgrade their secondary.

Not necessarily.

If Bucs throw their 1st rounder which is 13 they can likely trump anything we put together but I can see why they would balk at throwing in such a high pick especially since their isn't exactly a huge market for Revis. But our 1st rounder is at 31 which is more expandable than 13 and we have a higher 2nd round pick than the Bucs do not to mention just more picks overall to throw in as change.

Just my personal gut feeling is that we're the second "mystery" team but Plan A is still Sean Smith and Plan B is Revis. So I think the Jets are holding out to see if we land Smith because if we don't they know we'll move to Revis which is going to give them leverage over the Bucs in getting a better deal and vice versa.

More likely Denver is the mystery team, with the 49ers and Atlanta showing slight passing interest.
