Restructuring doesn't mean giving up money. A lot of the time, it means getting your season's salary up front as a signing bonus so that the money is spread out through the life of the deal instead of heaped on to one year.

That number, if and when it did go up, wouldn't be until next year. Not to mention if you give the guy 15 mil that doesn't mean his cap hit will be 15 mil. I don't even think trading Revis saves more than a marginal amount this season.

If you do trade Cro, it doesn't need to be this off-season. And, if for some reason he is, you don't need to trade him until you have a FA about to sign on the dotted line. Opportunity cost- yes we can spend that money at other positions but we don't know that'll be a worthwhile expense until the market takes shape.
I still get that you can spend the 15 million somewhere else -- and obviously 25 mill for two corners is premium -- but what I've been trying to get at is the Jets could easily end up trading Revis and walking into 2014 with 15+ mil in cap space. Or worse, that money could go to a worthless player. These are two of the only guys we get our money's worth from, even though we have to pay them both.
Guys like this are difficult to acquire, doesn't always take just available money and draft picks. If it did, the pro bowl would be Dallas vs. Washington every year.
