They are saying that Revis can be had for some picks.

He's coming off surgery. Has a high price tag.

But we need some CB's.

Would you?

Knowing we'd have to pay his high salary, what is the package of picks you offer?

Yes. Maybe our first next year and a combination of player(s)/lower picks this year.

We aren't close enough to justify a move like this. I hope we get back to building through the draft (assuming we can actually make smart decisions on draft day.)

Didn't yall just go down this road with Aso?

I'd give them a conditional 3rd rounder or maybe a 4th and Nnamdi. No way in hell I give up a 1st for a guy coming off knee surgery.

Yes. No Revis for picks, unless we're getting an obvious bargain.

This. No thanks Jeff, at least not at the price the Jets will be asking.

With the new rookie wage scale, I'm not sure there are many veterans out there worth more than one high pick. Not when you can get a high first round talent for a fraction of the free agents wages.

Revis is coming off an ACL. I find it hard to believe how anyone could forsee how Revis can do prior to the draft. The Jets are cap strapped and want to eliminate their risk. He would be a one year rental and keep in mind a healthy Samuel was obtained for 7th so why should an injured CB whose potential is unknown go for significantly more?

That talent is a lot less proven than a free agent, especially one like Revis, even if he is coming off of knee surgery. I would like him, and I would say that giving up our first round pick this year could be justified, but I don't think we need him THAT badly. I still believe that if Namdi is in the right system, he can still play well. So many of bad plays last year were coverage driven and truly the fault of the saftey.

There were times last year when Asomugha made Bobby Taylor look like Dawkins. I think DRC will survive, but not our overpaid and oft-burnt ex-Raider.

Revis is now saying he wants more money than the dude in Buffalo just got.

Sorry but I think Revis is just too much trouble. First, we have no idea how he comes back from the injury. He could be great...or not. Second, it seems like every season he complains about what he's making and wants to renegotiate. While I understand it (to a point), you can't keep doing this and not affect your team.

I'd pass on him. Let someone else deal with this every season.

After review ... I agree.

High price for a player coming off major injury. No thank you
