Darrelle Revis CB, Jets; ON THE BLOCK

28 posts in this topic

ESPN reporting that NY is considering moving DR this offseason.

 

Can we get him for our 1st (24th overall)???

 

Should we?

Hmmm.... Greg Rosenthal reports the same:

Jets' owner is pondering to trade Revis. Cap problems, if I get it right.

 

His earlier stats are impressive (in most of 2012 season he was injured), but I don't know in what shape he is now...

 

If Jets are dumb enough to trade him... let's offer them a 3rd round pick and Drew Stanton for Revis. I think they need a servicable QB.

Since Vontae Davis played well for us down the stretch, I'm not convinced his price justifies our needs. If we give up our 1st, our o-line will take a hit, which I'm almost certain will be an o-lineman, since protection for Luck was a huge issue. It's a miracle Luck wasn't injured.

I think Davis alone isn't enough, just remember our PO-game. While Davis was  covering Torey Smith pretty well, Vaughn was blanked by Baldin several times. So, I think we need an other CB.

I think we all agree we need another corner, but Revis for the price of the 1.... tough. I'd rather keep hold of the pick I think and see what we can get in the draft.

Couldn't have said it any better.

Yeah I agree. However, Powers will be back next year (if we re-sign him); if we keep Butler, Powers would be a servicable nickel and Vaughn will go back to his rightful place on ST.

I think we need more studies on the concussive effects of pro football on some of its fans!

 

Lets trade all  our picks for Revis

Sign Ed Reed

Tim Tebow

JaMarcus Russell

 

Hell lets talk Ray Lewis out of retirement......

Vaughn's rightful place is off this Team

I don't think anyone knows that he's on the block. http://forums.colts.com/index.php?/topic/15049-should-we-get-revis-merge/

 

lol...agreed...no one had any idea.  It's not like there's a poll at the top of the forum asking the very same question, which I might add was already merged with another duplicate thread that had already been started.  Well I guess this just makes another addition to the merge.

You have to think about depending on what we have to give up. You get Revis and you have effectively shut off half the field. So that puts Davis on their number two guy and that will make him even better. Then you throw in Mathis going after the QB and you have the perfect weapon to fight this pass happy league.<br /><br />Bottom line is Revis is the best corner in this league and worrying about guys like Powers and Vaughn should never come into our thought.<br /><br />All that matters is how much we have to give up and I doubt we will get him cheap. If we could get him for our first year, focus on OL in free agency and get Mathis some help I think we could make a legitimate run at the Super Bowl.

Wait a minute... Revis may be traded? Why didn't anyone start a thread about this earlier?

like i have said on the other thread or two about this topic he is not worth our 1st pick. sorry but the guy wants a raise every year, he has a bad attitude, and he is only about himself. we do not need that drama in indy. i dont care how good of a player he is. one bad apple brings down the whole locker room.

Yeah, I think some idjut already committed that sin.

Does this mean we're done talking about getting Tebow? Already?

Stanton is a FA, so i dont think we can trade him lol. but i also would not off the jets a 3rd rounder. all of the CB's traded this year were had for a 4th round pick or a lower pick. except for vontae davis inwhich was had for a 2nd round pick. so give the jets our 4th round pick for revis, or our 6th round pick for him lol.

Not a chance I'd do it, just draft Xavier Rhodes or sign, Brent Grimes, Tracey Porter or Sam Shields and for the love of repectable Corners everywhere either send Vaughn or Powers packin, preferably Vaughn but hey Powers is only slightly better because he does not resort to drawing PI penalties because of lack of talent, both should be gone in my book but unfortunately Powers is not going anywhere I bet

Lets trade Stanton, Fokou, & Butler for a #2. lol

You can get 3-4 good players for Revis $$$. NO CB is worth more than $10M if that much. TEAM!

I'd pass on Revis and not even question myself. He's coming off a serious knee injury that could slow him down substantially and he may never be the same. He is not worth spending the type of money he would cost. He's not worth losing draft picks over and there are cheaper options available that haven't had a torn up knee.

I think you may be relying on old data. Considering that Revis spent most of this past season on IR, wasn't quite looking his old self in the couple games prior to his injury, and has a history of issues like hammies, I'm not sure there are any guarantees that he can still shut down his computer, let alone half the field. Has anyone considered the possibity that he's on the trading block because his career as an impact player is over, and the Jets want to get value for him while no one knows it yet?

I agree 100%

 

This ain't "free agent Corey Simon at 14M" we're talking here....Darrelle Revis will want premier NFL superstar $$$$ and IMO the risk is way too high with that ACL.

 

Injury history matters and we have several other well-discussed roster concerns.

Revis wants to be paid like a top 5 player, not top 5 CB. He costs too much and CBs are the most often injured players in the NFL.

    • Became diehard lifelong Colts fan in 2004 when Manning and the Colts put up galactic numbers and torched opponents in the regular season.  It was the first year that NFL games were available on TV in Hungary, my small country oversees. Unfortunately it was also a time when Brady and Belichik ruled the playoffs so I still have to face a lot of arrogant Pats fans over here with jerseys in the wrong blue color.  Nevertheless, just to give you an idea: soccer being the most popular sport in Hungary, the championship game of our tiny american football league draws a larger crowd than the total of the 8 soccer games in a regular game day of our national league.  I couldn't make it to London this weekend, my heart broke, feel devestated. Been reading this forum and other Colts blogs for many years and somehow the time has come to become more active in posting. One last thing I wanted to tell you. Part of it me becoming so fond of the Colts were you guys. The optimism, the supportive attitude and the patience toward the team, it was clearly perceptible not only in the Colts organization since the Dungy years but also in its fandom. I always though that these traits clearly distinguish the Colts fans from those of all other 31 teams and honestly from anything we used to see here in Europe where the popular soccer teams change their coaches every other year. I recognize the tone has become more unpatient around here recently also, I mean these complaint threads dedicated to Pags and Grigs pinned on the forum... but maybe it's a good thing to contain our sudden emotions and reactions. However I promise I'll try to keep my cool even in difficult times, rather put away my anger by means of humor and irony so that our message boards remain indeed smarter and more sensible than those of any other team. Can't wait to chat with you guys on this forum and Go Colts in the Wembley!
    • Tankersly I think has a first round grade from Kiper and perhaps McShay....     So, I would't be confident that he'd last to our pick in the 3rd round....   Also,  the problem with those 3 picks is that there's no running back.     I'd hate to wait until the 4th round to take a RB.      This is a great class of backs,  I'd prefer to take one of them on Day 2......   Oh,  and I think there's little chance that Freeman lasts until our pick in the 3rd round.       Believe he'll be gone before the end of R2.      
    • I respect what you're trying to do with the mock and plug holes and of those that I have knowledge on, I don't dislike any of your picks.   Although, I would be very hesitant to give away 2 2nd round picks just to get a higher 2nd round pick. Too many holes to fill and ageing vets to replace to start trading away high picks.
    • Figures, Heath Evans probably has the Jags beating us by 30. I will stick with 27-20. I predicted the Jags would be a .500 team this season and were overrated but they always play us good for some reason even when they are bad. I say we win by 7.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
