varjet Posted January 17, 2017 Share Posted January 17, 2017 Thoughts on Pick 6: In most scenarios, the Jets can select a predicted star at a position which also allows them to cut a declining veteran, which, because of the rookie salary scale, results in huge savings: WR-cut Marshall and/or Decker (draft Williams) S-cut Gilcrist and/or trade Pryor (draft Hooker or Adams) CB-Revis (see below) (draft Tabor) ILB-cut Harris short (draft Foster) Drafting a RB, OL or QB is cap negative, likely. A OL could fill an opening day need. A RB would share carries to 2 already on the roster (could consider just cutting Forte lose) A QB from this group is unlikely to start Day 10 These ratings are based on overall player ratings. That does not mean that the LTs and QBs will be picked higher. The Jets are still looking at picking a QB potentially. Such is the price you pay for not having one. Vis a vis Revis-my suggestions are: Offer him $7.5mm to play CB2. He is owed $7mm anyway, and another team only has to pay him $1mm which is offset. So $7.5mm means Revis makes a bit more than he would if the Jets cut him outright. Hopefully he has some pride and loyalty to make it up to the Jets and also to build his resume for 2018 and maybe beyond. I would play a S conversion by ear, but he did not look like a potential safety. Given that the Jets are out $7mm anyway, I think there is a decent shot that does come back, but if he does not, make him one of the last cuts and let him find another team in September. So, generally, I think there are ways to give Revis a chance and motivate him, but I would not give him alot of wiggle room. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
