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 ?
What I believe, and it is only my opinion- no more right or wrong than yours. is that Revis contract demands are so high that when combined with the price of a 1st rd pick is too rich. Especially in light that he is rehabbing from an injury.
If Revis was a FA I think He would get 13mill and 77 total a year. not the 96 mill that Williams got or the 92 million that Peppers got. (I Know I said 80 mil but 3 mill was given up from this years salary)
Revis at 80% is better than any of the guys that you could get in the middle of the 1st rd. No doubt about it. But is is Revis and 13 mill of cap room. For reference, take Minn picking 23 they could give that to the jets and get Revis. They have 16 mill in capspace and the 1st year hit will leave them with enough money to sign the rest of thier rookies , but no room to sign any of thier FA. Or they could draft Banks or Rhodes at 23 and use 11 mill to sign other FA, Is Revis better than banks, you bet. But is revis better than Banks and 3 other starters that they could get for that 11 mill of cap room?
Why i think it works for the jets to keep him is at least it gives the jet fans something to look forward to. The jets next year will have about 40 mill of cap room if they let Revis walk in FA. With that 40 mill they will buy more FA than they lose so there goes the comp pick from losing Revis. Add the 9 mill of cap room that it would cost to move him this year.
What I asked is that you find me the buyers for Revis willing to give 6 years and 77 mill and the #1 pick for the pleasure of doing so.
I don't understand your question on the Jones or JPP picks.
