  • Revis for our 1st?

    Would you do that right now? tonight? Jets say they might explore a trade. at 19, heck even at #1, there are no guarantees. That guy is a guarantee. a lock down corner in his prime. would mask basically our biggest problem. and with Prince make our pass rush more dangerous with "coverage sacks."

    On the flip side, he's entering his 7th year and has had a knee surgery. so it's risky. and you won't get the same mileage as you would out of a 2013 pick. tough call, or easy decision for the Giants? (also, giants wouldn't offer the 1st right out the gate anyway, but if it came to that, would you do it?)

    He's too expensive.

      as the best cover corner in football should be. obviously we'd have to trim some fat. but give me an answer as if money and the cap were no object.

            Can't even afford our own guys... this guy wants to restructure every single year.

                If money was no object.. yes, probably.

                  I THINK I WOULD TOO. 1ST RD PICK IS NO GUARANTEE TO BE GREAT, OR TO EVEN LAST 5 YEARS. SO WHY NOT GO AFTER REVIS? (ASSUMING HIS KNEE IS GOOD TO GO). YOU LOCK DOWN ONE SIDE OF THE FIELD. HOPE PRINCE KEEPS GETTING BETTER ON THE OTHER SIDE, AND YOU SOLVE A MASSIVE PROBLEM OVERNIGHT. NOT ONLY IN THE D-BACKFIELD, BUT UP FRONT WHERE THE PASS RUSH WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE. THEN IN ROUND 2 - 7 YOU CAN ADDRESS LB, AND OL. AS WELL AS IN FREE AGENCY.

                    Well in the cap era, money is ALWAYS an object.
                    To give up a first AND pay this kid what he wants, PLUS he's coming off an ACL......seems like a bad move.

                      Yeah, realistically, no, but the OP posed a hypothetical.
                      Just give him whatever Adrian Peterson took and he'll be fine

                        and remember... this is a passing league right now. if even one of your corners can't cover, you're a mess defensively. we play Peyton/Demaryius, Rodgers, Cutler, Stafford/Calvin, Rivers, RG III, Romo/Dez etc next season alone.

                          Honestly...a corner coming off an ACL is as big or (bigger) a risk than a mid first round pick.
                          Plus he makes a ton. Plus he's been in the league for a while now. I'd rather have a young prospect taken with the 19th pick.

                          Also Revis doesn't really fit our scheme. He's a press corner guy who would have problems in a conference with RGIII, Kapernick, Wilson and the other mobile QB's.
                          We are a zone defense now.

                              Our scheme is more suitable for corners who play in a scheme where they face the QB and have good ball skills.
                              Revis doesn't really fit that (except the ball skills). He's a pure press cover guy.
