The possibility of this never crossed my mind.
However, comming across THIS ARTICLE
I started kicking it around. WOULD I MAKE A TRADE FOR DARRELL REVIS ?

I might do it for one of our seconds and one of our 3rds pending a physical.

1. Obvious need filled
2. Not a problem with cap space
3. Even with the deal I proposed we would still have a pick in
each of the first 5 rounds
4. Like the article says ... ACLs are not what they used to be, and he
had it early enough in the season to be ready for camp.

What say you ?

I would say no. He has a huge contract and he seems to want a new one every other year. Hasn't been able to stay healthy as of late. I think we would have a better shot at signing Cox or Cromartie and drafting a guy like Trufant or Poyer in the 2nd round.

Interesting....I would go for it.

He's a known commodity and would allow the Dolphins to only worry about the other corner position.

I would have used those picks on a corner anyways.

He's still one of the 5 best CB in the NFL.

Team him with a guy like Jenkins out of Dallas and the Dolphins have turned the secondary into a strength.

It would [inappropriate/removed] off Jets fans....

It's a No for me as well unless we could reno Dansby's contract down to about $5 Mil per year and we let Smith walk.....then it would probably be a great idea, but realistically I don't see Dansby renegotiating.

I'd pass. There are just too many factors of cost versus return to make acquiring him a lopsided deal in the Jets favor. Besides, I'm am so enjoying this self created abyss that the Jets are in, that even if it would help us out, I don't want us to throw them a rope to get out.

Id Dansby refuses to renegotiate his deal with a Top 3 DB sitting there to help him do his job, that speaks volumes about who he is.

And can somebody explain why we are viewing this as a FA signing. I'm not being sarcastic. Am I missing something ?

I'm not viewing it as a FA signing since Revis still has 1 year left on his deal with the Jets for which I believe he's owed $6 Mil and will probably hold out for a Contract Reno again and that's why the Jets may look to trade him. The issues we'd have getting him in a trade are his salary expectations, and more importantly the Jets will not be interested in him going to a Divisional rival.

I absolutely agree with your comment about Dansby.

Why would Dansby restructure? He hasn't even gotten paid yet...

If I heard correctly, Revis' cap number is only 6 mil this upcoming season. It's the upcoming contract that one should worry about.

I wouldn't mind bringing him in, and I would do a 2nd and a 3rd. Getting Revis would make Smith expendable, and let's say Smith took a lowball offer to stay here like he might due to a lack of playmaking production, A corner tandem of Revis and Smith, with Marshall in the slot and Jones at safety could spell out the best secondary on paper in the NFL.

For me...an ELITE CB is not needed to win big games. It helps but its not a requirement. The giants won with corey webster as their best CB. the ravens lost their best CB and they are in the super bowl now. SF has carlos rogers as their CB. So I would definitely pass on him. And keep on focusing with the draft and use it on more pass rushers who can get to the QB. We just need good enough CBs who can play.

I'll pass. I don't believe in trading within the division. I also think that Revis is over rated. I would rather keep the picks and roll the dice with the picks.

It is all about what long term contract he would agree to. If he continues to think he deserves to be paid like a top 5 elite QB, I'd say no way. If he will sign a 5 year deal for an average of the top 5 CB's pay.....then I'd take that deal in a N.Y. second.

I'd pass on Revis. Money, ACL injury, and is selfish. You can deal with one of those traits with players, but certainly not all three.
