Our Defense with Revis?
Thu Jan 24, 2013 12:55 pm
  • Would Seattle have any interest in Revis? Would people be excited about him and Sherman pairing up? My personal thoughts are that Seattle would have to give up too much and it wouldn't make our defense that much better in order to justify it. I would be lying though if I said it wouldn't be fun to watch. Thoughts?

  • My thought is this is not even worth talking about.

    Revis's contract is insane, still owed 32 million guaranteed...........AND he's coming off a torn ACL................AND he's a malcontent that's already asked for his contract to be restructured once, and wouldn't hesitate to do it again...............AND you'd have to give up a 1st round pick, and probably more to get him.

    My hope is SF trades for him, which would soak up all their available cap space, then he sucks due to nagging injuries and bad attitude.

  • We can't even remotely begin to afford Revis. It's not even approachable.

    We already have very strong CB's...we don't need "another" one, especially with that contract. We need depth and a reliable slot corner.

    What we "need" is a pocket collapser and a consistent pass rush. You fix that, and our already damn good DB's will get even better.

  • Not even worth considering. Sando just wrote on his blog that the RAMS shouldn't even consider this trade.

    Here's some stuff he wrote regarding the outlook for St. Louis and SF that I think applies (or should apply) to Seattle as well:

    "James from Illinois used the most recent NFC West chat to ask whether the St. Louis Rams, armed with additional draft choices in 2013, might be wise to consider a trade for Revis. My response: an emphatic no.

    The Rams already have talent at cornerback. They fared well with their 2012 draft choices and should continue building that way. St. Louis is currently in position to stock future rosters with young, affordable and healthy draft choices. There could come a time when the team would be better off trading draft capital for a single veteran player. I don't think this is the time. I don't think an injured Revis is the player.

    ...

    The 49ers have steadfastly avoided paying big money to players from other teams. The team prefers rewarding the players it develops, not upsetting the pecking order in the locker room by valuing outsiders at a higher level. I know that was part of the 49ers' thinking when they watched Asomugha and other high-priced free agents sign elsewhere."

  • Yep...Janoris Jenkins scored 4 TDs last season. He seems to have a knack for the big play.

    That was a great pick by Fisher.
