Don't we have a free agency thread going on for these questions?

No. I don't think he would help us. Maybe as a mentor, other than that no.

No, absolutely not. You'd be paying him for his name, not what he can offer.

He's a me-first, money-driven wash up. Not interested in mid-30s FAs with a history of following the money and showing little interest in the collective. His 2016 was atrocious.

As a mentor? This is a guy who said last year his body was breaking down and the end was near (while minimizing the fact that he was out of shape and disinterested).

Wouldn't want him anywhere near our young guys at this point. Bad habits are tough to break.

Only reason he wasnt charged with multiple felonies is because his buddy took the fall for him. i expect him to be paid handsomely for his time in the clink.

If we sign him, yes.
If we don't sign him, no.

I know I'm in the minority, but I think he can help.
I know he was bad last year, but he still has to be better than a lot of what we have back there currently.

And here's the rub. He won't sign for the peanuts that he deserves. He will take his $6M and watch games from his couch. And even if you can pull him off of the couch, he's not what he once was and I'm not sure that he even cares about that anymore.

Double edged sword...can he help? Probably. Should GB go get him? I hope not.

he dropped ten pounds and is open to moving to safety

also, he's slated to make 6M this season regardless of whether he's playing or on the couch.

I meant more from subtleties of the game and technique standpoint. Not as a general human being.

He was PFF's 99th rated corner after the first half of the season. 24th the second half. I wouldn't be confident saying he's better than anything we currently have now.

Where did Randall, Rollins, Gunter and House rank? And I said, better than a lot of what we have back there currently. Not better than "anything" we currently have.

He's not. I don't see why we'd pay him any amount of money to crowd our secondary backfield, even if it's at safety. It's just stunting the growth of our own guys. He's not interested in winning a title. He proved last season was about collecting a check; for all of his talk about "returning home," this is a guy who added 20 pounds and then claimed his "body was breaking down." It reeks of a discipline issue that won't be easily corrected at age 31/32.

He got torched repeatedly last season. I'm not sure it's worth investing any amount of resources to train him to play safety, and signing him to play corner is a step in the direction of making our secondary older and slower. The potential benefit--above average but spotty boundary play--is not worth the headache. He's a diva. That's a toxic personality to have around two third-year corners, an UDFA (Gunter) and one or two rookie selections.

TT cares about the locker room dynamic as much as any GM. There's little doubt the FO doesn't see Revis as being a good fit.

Now that I found out the Jets will be paying his contract under 6m, and it most likely will take a 1 year vet min deal from us? I'm all for it. No risk there.

I think he's done, and we're good at safety anyway.
