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:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000130427/article/woody-johnson-meddles-with-darrelle-revis-decision

 

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.

    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)
    • A passing league now. You could say the same of probably 10 other WRs in the league right now. Marv did it in a very different league.    Not taking away from it, he's a Pro Bowl player.
    • This is why you need a well rounded team.  No matter how good 1,2, or 5 players play, it takes an entire team to win games.  Every aspect of the team thrives or wither off the success AND failures of other aspects.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
