    Has Revis beat the system?

    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.

    There's a lot of risk in going year to year. Revis is so good that he knows he can bet on himself to perform each and every year so long as he's healthy. And when you're as good as he is even if you get hurt teams will still want to take the chance on you. Few players have that ability and of those who do, Revis is better business man than most of them.

    There's a lot of risk and Revis banking on himself, its an admirable move.

    If he stays relatively healthy the rest of his career, he'll look like a genius businessman.

    He may be, but in actuality, it's a smart move on his part.

    Just wait, Sherman will be there to.
    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    if he was just greedy, why would he keep accepting risky deals instead of gaurentteed money?

    In hindsight it might be smart, but if he suffered a career ending injury last year (or even this year), he'd look pretty dumb. He rolled the dice and so far so good. I have to think if he plays well this year, the Pats will look to lock him up.

    has Revis beat the system?
    I guess I don't understand the "beat the system" part.

    Revis just bet on himself and is/was willing to risk injury and the downside. Part of the reason he can do it is because he is the very best at his position. Joe Flacco, who isn't the best at his position, but did bet on himself when he refused his original offer and waited until after the season. It worked out. He got paid. It could just as easily not worked out. Most players want the security. That is a reason that many are willing to negotiate an extension in their 4th season. Who can blame them?

    I think that's pretty cool when a guy has the confidence to invest in himself. It would really suck if he got a serious injury, but he's made enough money that the risk isn't as high as it would be for others. It's a unique situation.

    Just like it's the anti Seahawks fans goal to tell us Sherman will be in the same boat.

    Well guess what. Sherman makes 500k a year, and still hasn't held out like Revis has multiple times.

    Sherman is not like Revis, and that's very obvious. Keep thinking it's the same thing though .

    Other than at the bargaining table, winning seems to be a lower priority for this guy. And it's a business and a short career, so that's OK. But the days of $16M per for one CB are over, IMO. Whatever free agent market he envisions next off season will likely not be there. Having competent depth in the bottom third of the roster is imperative nowadays. And the fact that there needs to be two other CB's on the field. Quality QB's will just pick on the other guys all day, if they so choose. No CB deserves QB-type money.

    First, I said Sherman fans, not Seahawk fans.

    If you think, for a second, that Sherman will not seek to get paid, well, I don't know what to say.

    Will he threaten to hold out at some point, who knows, but, he will seek a huge payday.
