Picking up some chatter that the #Colts have indeed contacted the #Jets to explore the option of aquiring Darrelle Revis.

Interesting...

According to ESPN New York, Darrelle Revis is "believed" to be seeking $16 million annually and $60 million guaranteed on his next contract.

For perspective, Mario Williams signed a contract last March paying him $16 million per year but with "only" $50 million guaranteed. It made him the highest paid defensive player in league history. New Jets GM John Idzik met with his All-Pro cornerback on Friday, but was noncommittal on Revis' future at his introductory press conference, which speaks volumes. The Jets only have Revis signed through 2013. Mired in the worst salary cap situation in football, the Jets simply won't be able to pay the man.

 

That's a fortune! I don't know he is worth THAT money, however earlier I said we should get him for the right prise.

:mindblow:  :oops:

 

 

If true......

 

Due diligence by Grigson?

 

Sigh.

 

Well I already said no to the idea but whatever happens this offseason I keep saying to myself, "In Grigson I trust........."

If you can get Revis, you go get Revis. It's that simple. Superstar CBs aren't found as easily as OLmen. OLmen are much cheaper too so this idea that extending Revis will kill our ability to add talent elsewhere is nonsense. Revis is easily the biggest impact player to change teams this off season (if he does). The injury is nonsense too. This guy is working his butt off to get paid. This isn't 1992, rehab technology has changed dramatically. If he isn't 100% the player he was, at worst he's 98%. It's worth risking a 20something pick for.

Also I want to point out Grigson had a hand in many of Philly's splash moves over the past few years. Vick, Nnamdi, Cullen Jenkins. Grigson will gamble. Seperate your hearts & your heads.

I say no. Is a CB worth 16 mil a year? I say put that money into the O-line/D-line. And what's left over we can fill a lot of gaps. jmo.

He may have had a hand, but we don't know how much input/weight his opinion mattered. I do know that his opinion matters now, and so far I'm happy. Until I see otherwise, In Grigs I Trust.

I still say he's a top 5 player in the league. Definitely the best defensive player in the league.

Banks or Amerson  > Revis, $$$$$ & uncertain health.

 

No they are not. Revis at 75% is still a top 5 corner in the league. At 100% he's the best defensive player in the league.

So what you're saying is; Revis running a 5.3 40 (Defensive Lineman speed) is better than healthy, younger, more cost effective studs.  Revis @ 75% is still on IR.

No DB coming out of this draft has anywhere near the talent or ability that Revis does. If Revis is even a little bit worse than he was before the injury he's still one of the best defenders in the league. If he's up to full speed he's the best defender in the game.

Agreed. However, what we know is that he is hurt. He is expensive $ & Draft picks. He has not played big boy football in over a year...We have a younger team... And we need this draft... So, when all things are considered.   (Banks) or (Amerson)  > (Revis, $$$$$ & uncertain health...picks) is a correct logical statement.

Darrell Revis is the Peyton Manning of defense and he's only 27. $16 mill is absurd but nobody is going to pay him that. Wasting a first round pick on an uncertain player who may or may not pan out in the NFL is just as much a risk as signing the best defender in the league coming of a knee injury that players have bounced back from a lot in the past 5 years. With Revis you get what you pay for. I guess we can agree to disagree.

If the Colts were in a different division I might see some sense to it but the South doesn't exactly scare me as far as passing game. Defensive front is more important.

As much as I would be for getting Revis I would spend just a tad more and get Sean Smith/Dashon Goldson. That would keep the secondary young and also put some more physicality in the secondary. I know Smith had a down year but much like Vontae before he was traded Sean had to adjust to a different defense. Yes, he had a down year but I would love to get him here with Pagano and back in press coverage with Vontae.

I would be happy with a pass on Reed/Revis for Smith/Goldson.

i know people don't wanna pay the money the for it but why not? Instead of waiting for a cb to develop we have the chance to get the best cb in the game.

Because no CB is worth 16 million a yr.. Not worth even close to that. Not to mention the fact that he's coming off a serious knee injury and nobody knows how well he will come back from it. Yeah, a lot of players make it back to close to what they were before, but there are also others that never get back to where they were before. To give up picks and then have to give him a whopping contract on top of that is absolutely foolish for a team in the Colts position IMO.

It's not just the passing game with Revis though. Him being out on an island allows for one of our safeties to play down in the box giving better run support.

I'm all for getting another corner, but NOT shelling out the picks, players, and $$$ it will require to get Revis.  We don't need another #1.  We need a solid #2 who isn't so easily picked on, and a pass rush.

exactly... even though the topic post says "at a fair price".... that price would be too steep IMO... its a close call, though IMO... he is a great player, but he is only one player and the knee is a concern as well.

I don't think that there is a guy in the draft with Revis-like potential, but you have to do a cost benefit analysis that includes the draft pick(s) and his likely contract. I do think that one great player is worth countless mediocre ones, but if you can get a gem at #24 for what 3.5 mil. or something it does a lot to keep us under the cap in the future compared to signing a guy with a huge contract. However, there are creative ways to negotiate contracts that may alleviate some of the pain... I'm sure there must be a mathematical formula somewhere that can provide some sort of clarity to the issue, but it comes down to what you need to build a team... I'm not saying that you don't need great players to build a great team, but you can have a top 5 secondary without a top 5 corner or safety on it... This really is a tough one... glad I don't have to decide these things, but I'd be leaning toward not trading for him.

If we can land Revis without giving up the farm (considering we have to also pay him a ridiculous amount of money)....get him.

I somehow see the Jets asking a ridiculous price though which will scare off alot of teams.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
