I was thinking about this after the last two contracts Revis has signed. With Tampa signing for 6 years 96 million with exactly 16 million eveyr season, but no guaranteed money is unheard of. He made sure every year he was getting 16 million but also the team didn't have much of a risk with no penalty to cut him.
Then this contract with the Pats for 12 millio making him the highest paid corner for 1 year. But throwing in the 2nd year to make sure they can't franchise him ad thus LOWERING the cap hit for the pats almost in half.
So Revis can sign these 1 year deals every year and make sure he is the highest paid corner in the game and also get to pick what contender he wants to play for that year. If your a team that is a superbowl contender and needs a corner why wouldn't you pay the guy 12-14 million for 1 season and with the way the agent constructed the deal you won't even have a huge cap hit.
The guy has already pocketed over 80 million dollars in his career and in todays game where all these big contracts with these guaranteed money are usually meaningless which you see in the Talib deal has Revis found a way to get the best of both worlds?
I think it's fascinating the last couple contracts his agent has gotten him. Also his Uncle wants to run for the NFLPA. He might have a good case.
