4. you confusing the market for Revis as a FA with the market for him as a injured player coming off an ACL, in a trade with a team asking for a #1.
I laid out a scenario where the jets saved 3mill in cap room by signing Revis.
I allocated QB money to Revis, as the jets don't have a qb in the future that will get paid 12 mill a year. even if Moore does not work out and you draft a guy in the top 5 next year he only makes less than 5mill per for the first 4 years. Your trading Revis, before he can work out, a trade thatrequires the jets to take a a 9mill cap hit this year, so instead of saving 3 your spending an additional 6 to trade him. All this while expecting a team to give you a #1 for the right to see him rehab. And you have to replace him, and this year without Landry and without Cro having a career year.
Now to your other points, What did Ziggy do to get him at #9? He had a great senior bowl, but looked to be out of positon as often as in position. I see him going where Chandler Jones and JPP went. Mid 20s.
So according to u, a player nobody would give a 1st round pick for is worth 15 mil to us because he is on our team. According to u, Revis the consensus best CB in the league when healthy is not better at 80% than some kid coming into the league from this draft.
U asked me what was it that Ziggy did to warrant going at 9. I will answer that by asking you what did he do to warrant being mentioned with the likes of Chandler Jones and JPP ? If those doing the drafting knew what those players were going to turn into prior, where do u figure those 2 players would have been drafted ?
