Trying to bash Cro after the season he just had?
No way we trade Cro. In today's NFL, corners are a lot more valuable. His contract is a bargain and pay Revis to keep him too. All we need is a Lb that can cover the TE and we shut down the passing game. Those two corners are our foundation to rebuild on.
Agreed with tonyroos. Take a hit this year on the Roster and sign Revis letting Keller and others walk. Build through the draft and use Sanchez and Holmes cap relief next season to pay Revis a roster bonus to ease his cap figure down the road. I am happy if we don't sign a big time free agent for the next 3 season as long as we keep Revis and Cro.
You realize you're just creating another need right? and what money? Revis counts less against the cap than Harris, Sanchez, Cromartie, Brick, Mangold, Pace and Holmes. and on whom are you spending this money on instead?But we have more glaring needs to spend the money on.
I'm not sure what the hell you mean by "more". Do you think you're getting a better player in return than Revis? Unproven draft picks? Not to mention the knee injury hurts any trade value.Plus he will get more for us in a trade so we can re-build faster.
Scott and Pace are the budget cuts. There aren't even any free agents to blow money on and given the thin class guys are going to be overpaid as it is.
Revis & Cromartie at CB is the Jets competitive advantage.
Whether of not Revis is re-signed in the off season will have a lot to do with his willingness to honor his current deasl and sign an extension.
From what I've heard though, he's not interested in that...at least pre-injury. Last I heard, he was expecting to have the Jets tear up his deal and pay him up front like they did last time.
With the team's current cap issues, that is just not a possibility, and wasn't last year.
If the Jets can't extend Revis, I expect them to shop him, but ultimately keep him at least until the trading deadline when he's proven his health. Then they'll either extend him mid-season, or trade him for the best deal they can get...unless they're contending, then they might just keep him and roll the dice in the offseason.

Revis being a Jet forever isn't on the Jets, it's on Revis.
He's going to HAVE to take a discount to be on the Jets, other teams will offer him more.
