Revis's Replacment


Recommended Posts

I know this may sound a bit paranoid but I am getting nervous thinking about how the heck we are going to pay for all our upcoming FA's. So something crossed my mind and I need reassurance that I am not crazy. We all just assume that Wilson was drafted to replace Cro eventually, but what if Wilson was drafted to replace Revis becuase of the insane contract he will demand? This is not possible right?

I don't want to hear the words "Revis" and "replace" in the same sentence again until I am listening to WFAN.... in my flying car.

I will electronically throw monkey poo in the face of the next dope to mention the words "Revis" and "replace" in the same sentence.

Not gonna happen.

They would cut the entire offensive line before letting Revis go, at least I hope they would.

But seriously, they would never loose him. If they did I'm sure it will go down in the books as one of the worse moves made in NFL history.

Revis is one of the most valuable players in the league, top 3 arguably.

Everything Rex wants to do on defense relies heavily on Revis being able to shut down the opposition's top wide-out.

No way we let him go!

I hope the Jets don't resign him. He'll be past his prime.

Yeah I said it.

Ummm.... I agree in part because he'll probably demand something like a 7 year contract in addition to a ridiculous salary. But in NO way would it be a good move to let the best CB in the league-in his mid 20s-that plays for a defense that values corners so much, walk for free.

Whens his contract up?

I hate contract talk....

Either after this season or next season. Either way he'll still be in the prime of his career at the time his contract expires. The only danger would be that he may only have abou 3 or so good years left after that... And he's probably going to want a contract that signs him to a much longer deal than that, and for A LOT of money as well. I still think we re-sign him and when he does start to slip...Cross that bridge when we come to it.

Everything this defense is about, everything it does, will do, and can do is based off of Revis. Let's stop being paranoid. I don't care how much he demands - you pay him.

I don't care how good Wilson is. A player like Revis comes along once every 10 years.

Would the Giants not pay LT in his prime? C'mon people.

Revis signed a 4 yr deal with 2 buyback years. His contract isn't up until after the 2012 season.

The buyback years are expensive for the Jets so they'll be looking to extend him sooner rather than later.

Revis isn't getting away. What Reed was for Ryan in Baltimore is what Revis is here...the star DB that makes the whole D go. I know one plays S and the other plays CB, but lets try to ignore such lame boundaries.

All that said, I'm sure Redskins fans said the same thing about Champ Bailey back in '99.

everyone assumes Revis gets signed

but we dont know what the future brings. Maybe revis gets hurt... definately the amount of money it will take will be obscene... maybe they franchise tag him and trade him for 2 first rounders.

YES original poster, Kyle Wilson _could_ be a Revis replacement. Its certainly selling him short to call him a nickel back.

Well yeah...that's why you don't extend him now when you have the buyback years. The only reason you would consider extending him now is if he gives you some sort of sweetheart deal that saves you money in the long term because he's going to get a mega deal once he hits FA.

As long as he is consistently an elite player and is healthy he is priority #1 to get extended.

That is precisely why you extend him now. The buy back is for something like $5M and $10M. His salary will be lower, so if you can extend him rather than paying all that money for the buy back.

I'd be happy to extend Revis if a suitable number can be reached. My point was just that Revis is well within his right to not take an extension to go for the big payday. It's risky as hell because obviously anything can happen.

You may get flack for this but I'd be lying if I didn;t think the same thing. I would talk more but the lady in the white dress is here with my meds.

You've got him for $15M over two. That's the start of the big payday. Suppose that you can get him for 20 over 4 or 5? He gets a big pay day and the Jets are only on the hook for another $5M over 2 or 3.

To all of those acting like it would be crazy...

Think back...

Vilma

Abe

Rhodes

None were as good as Revis but all were top guys in the D and were traded...

Never say never is all...

It would be an epic fail... but not impossible to see happen...

If you thought the fall-out of letting go of Jones, Rhodes, Faneca and Washington was bad, just imagine if we got rid of Revis in his PRIME.

We're talking about a guy who just had the best year a CB has EVER had, and may well be the GOAT at his position when all is said and done. You pay him without hesitation.

Due thats the worse comparison Ive ever seen. All those players had good reason to be let go. Revis is the absolute BEST at his craft.

Vilma- didn't fit the scheme and was hurt

Abe- was fragile and spent as much time on the bench as he did on the filed.

Rhodes- Took pusssy pills and they worked.

Im not saying ti can;t happen, but to compare Revis to those three makes about as much sense as cutting him now in fear he may leave anyhow.

revis is the best defensive player in the league. he isn't going anywhere......

Quite right! You don't let the best player at that position in the league (and young at that) go.

If a deal can't be reached, there is always the Franchise tag, then continue negotiations on a long-term deal during that year.

You are correct about one thing, though: in today's NFL, teams can't sign every player they want to keep to long-term deals; they have to pick and choose which ones to give long-term deals to, and which ones to let walk. Revis, however, is not a player they will let walk.

I don't completely agree. You don't get to pick which of your players you keep. You keep the ones that you can get for a reasonable contract. In a salary cap age, if a guy is insisting on crazy money you let him walk and don't put your whole franchise on one guy no matter how good he is. Sure you can franchise him once or twice, but each year you evaluate the contract and you don't sign the guy just because he is who he is. Revis vs. Brick, Mangold, Harris, etc. Brandon Marshall is a good example. I'm sure Denver would have liked to keep him, but not for the money he was demanding. They managed to get a couple of #2s and assuming there is a cap may well have made out in the deal.

+1

Revis would have to either be hurt for the next 2 years, not fit the system, and become an absolute punk to come remotely to the same situation that Vilma, Abe, and Rhodes were in.

The closest 1 to Revis was Abe and he was always hurt and asked out of playoff games.

This isn't apples and oranges. This is apples and potatoes.

Even if he might just be the GOAT at his position? We're forgetting that CB's can be effective for a long time. Just look at Charles Woodson.

I'm also holding out hope that Revis wants championships and won't necearilly make the Jets totally break the bank. It may be a pipe dream, but then again, players LOVE playing for Rex, and that might play a role in how much we have to pay them to stay.

Rest assured Revis will get PAID. But I think he'll want to make sure its us that pays him and keeps him here.

This isn't a problem to worry about for a while still. Everyone keeps going on mentioning Revis amongst the list of people the Jets need to extend, but they have PLENTY of time to do it. Revis signed a 6-year contract in 2007. Yeah, yeah he hit incentives to void out the last two years, but the Jets still have the option to buy those years back and they would have no reason not to. The guy won't be able to fit free agency until 2013 at the earliest and even then only if the Jets choose not to franchise him. The Jets have to worry about guys like Mangold, Harris, Ferguson, Edwards, Holmes, Cromartie and more all hitting free agency well before Revis ever will.
