I don't seem to recall Revis doing anything to help anyone but Himself.He is a millionaire coming off a fat contract. He could have told the Jets He loves playing in NY, and would even take a paycut to stay on the team. ( And He still would have had a fat contract paying him millions ).
    Do you know what restructuring means? Only 3 players genuinely shed salary in the past 3 years for the Giants. Diehl twice, Jacobs and now Webster. Restructuring usually means converting a base salary into guaranteed cash, which in itself is favorable to the player as they not only get paid upfront, but it makes it harder to cut or release. They don't lose any money.

    Besides, it's a pretentious notion to speak for Revis or use Eli as a comparison to be validated. The topic on hand is Bucs pursuing Revis. They have the cap to do so, need a cornerback and are pursuing the best on the market.

    Honestly pushing your contract to a back loaded once is almost as good as giving it away. Look at webster, he through he was making 8 million this year.

    It gets converted into a bonus which instantly becomes guaranteed.

    No it isn't. Bonuses are paid instantaneously. That figure pushed at the end is strictly for teams to manage their cap. Only money Webster was making this year prior to his restructure was his base salary. That bonus of his that appears this year had been paid out already years ago. And the more prorated money backloaded makes it more difficult for teams to cut or release due to dead money hits. So it actually gives you better job security.

    Why would he Bucs be stupid to pursue the best CB in NFL right now and maybe ever?

    I really don't understand folk's logic. Some folks will say to up the offer of 7 million per year to keep Victor Cruz, a slot receiver that alligator armed it quite a bit last season and then say it is stupid for a team to pay Darelle Revis. I don't understand that mentality.

    i think you are actually hoping the g's get him

    Revis could see the Jets missed their shot and goes to Tampa for a chance to get to the show, to prove it no guaranteed money!
