he's never been hurt like this before. He got 13 game checks for nothing last year. these negotiations are a brave new world. Also he's only dealt with Tanny and that relationship is toxic. there are reasons to believe the future of Revis' contract talks might be different from the past.
While some of this may be true, there is far more evidence to suggest that he won't budge on his demands than will. Revis held out his rookie year, prior to any previous negotiations with Tanny; he and his agents are all about getting top dollar, regardless of whether it's market value or cap-killing. This move would be much worse if he were the face of the franchise, but he's a silent leader, which I'm not undermining as that's needed in the lockerroom, but trading him is different than trading LT in his Diego days or Fitzy in 'Zona. I'm with Slats, be honest about wanting to keep him but at a price that is good for the team; if he agrees to a deal that works for both great, if not, let him test the waters and work out a trade that benefits both. No need to burn bridges as it's just business for both sides.
