.The 49ers are an aggressive team with the ammunition to pull off that kind of trade. They have a bargaining chip in backup QB Alex Smith, who, despite what owner Jed York said the other way, is done in San Francisco. They will try to trade him before April, when his $7.5 million salary becomes guaranteed. If they can't, they'll release him. The Jets surely would consider dealing Revis for Smith and a first-round pick (31st or 32nd) Unless they're willing to go heavy on QB salaries in 2013 -- remember, they're into Mark Sanchez for $8.25 million -- the Jets probably have to restructure Smith's contract.
I'd rather trade with the bengals.. They have tons of cap space.. Decent picks and are a decent team missing a couple play makers or 2
NY JETS .we just can't win the games we need to win

2013 NFL PSD MOCK DRAFT:
1ST RD PICK 9: KEKE MINGO OLB
2nd rd pick: Giovanni Bernard rb
3rd rd pick: Zac dysert Qb
4th rd pick: xavier nixon Og
5th rd pick: D.C jefferson Te
6th rd pick: Sio Moore Lb
I don't give a flying **** if a team has cap room, just give me picks.
If the Jets were to get a 1st this year and a 2nd next year, consider it a blessing.
PSD's Rich Cimini! Telling it like it is, whether you like it or not!!!
If it wasn't for Harbaugh Alex Smith wouldn't even exist. He was rattled in SF until he got the right coach. What do you think is gonna happen in NY? Do we have the right coach for him? That west coast offense is gonna need Smith to throw a lot. He's a game manager. Not a gunslinger.
Revis for Alex Smith and a pick or 2???
If we trade Revis, we can't get any of these players you guys are talking about unless half the team restructures as shown on nyjetscap.com. We need that 3 million he will cost us in a trade. The smarter decision is to trade Cromartie, especially with how he continues to be a problem with the press. This past week, he publicly ripped the offense, how can you have team unity with a guy like that on the roster?
More than likely the 49ers will release Smith or have to trade him for very little because other teams know $7.5 million of his salary will become guaranteed on the third day of the league year or something like that. It will be a waiting game. If you want to jump in on Smith, which I wouldn't be opposed to it would make more sense to do the following:
Cromartie for Smith and a 2nd or 3rd round pick
Cromartie will save you $8.25 million in cap space, while Smith will cost you $7.5 million, so you save $750,000 in the transaction, pick up a QB better than sanchez, pick up an extra pick, and loose a locker room problem
As far as Revis goes, as I've said before, even if you resign him to a premier player contract of 15-16 million per year, it can be structure in a such a way that his cap hit would be lower than $9 million in 2013 and save us more money on the cap, depending on the proration. Also, you can make the contract average 15-16 million a year, but backload it for his age 34 and 35 seasons, which would be year 6 and 7 of the deal if he sign a 7 year deal. As long as his guaranteed money is paid by those seasons, then the Jets hold leverage in renegotiating his deal because no one is going to pay him $16 million a year when he is 34. At that time, he will probably be moving to Safety because he tackles well, so you are looking at a renegotiation/extension down to about $7-8 million, which would be elite free safety money.
Ultimately, he will never complete the $16 million per year contract before a renegotiation, but he still will be able to say he got that kind of a deal because of what it averages out to when he signed it. Based on how you load up the last 2 years, it will be more like a 12-14 million per year deal over 5 years, which I don't think is that bad for a guy who will be the greatest Jet in history and our first ever first ballot hall of famer.

@NYjetsfan69 but Revis is prob gonna want that guaranteed money upfront in the first few years in case something happens to him. I don't see him agreeing to a back-loaded contract but who knows.
I think you sir are delusional, if the Phins can get a 2nd and 6th theres no reason we can get a first and second. Vontae cant even hold revis's jockstrap on his best day. And not to mention there buddy that this will be a bidding war for revis and I know teams that are tasting a Superbowl like Denver and San Fran and even Houston will be in a bidding war for him. Don't see how that out of the realm of possibility, no way we trade revis for a 2nd he goes for a first and more.
