  • I said this in the other thread where this story was mentioned:

    His availability became news a little over 24 hours ago, and they already have a list of five "highly interested" teams, one of which is preparing for a Super Bowl as we speak? Please.

    Gotta love unnamed source reporting.

  • If If and If, then you'd be looking at one of history's very best secondaries.

    Pass rush, please.

  • Several team sources are claiming the Jets want a first- and second-round pick for Revis, which is astronomical payment considering Revis -- while one of the best players in all of football -- is coming off knee surgery and will want a hefty contract.


    Nope. DB is not our issue.

  • I could see it, if JS and PC has this in mind...

    Revis and Sherman on the outside.... seriously that is terrifying to think about.
    Granted Revis to my knowledge has never played extensively press coverage, but if they want him I trust they believe they can do it.

    Browner moves to SS.

    Kam moves to Will.

    I don't know if that would work, but if they are really interested I assume that would be the plan. Browner IMO would be a liablity in the slot, as it would take away his greatest strenght.

  • That would potentially be an awesome defensive backfield made all the more dangerous if we were to acquire the needed pass rush.

    A monster young DT able to push the pocket and some extra depth for the edge and suddenly our D would be even more deadly for opponents than it presently is. No more need for soft zone coverage.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

    1. Revis is not injury prone. He missed 14 games this year. Before that, in 5 years, he missed 3 games.

    2. Revis will not get traded for a QB. If you think otherwise, you're a fool.

    3. Revis > Deion. Stop with the Deion love. He was fast and the defense had more leeway to slap WRs around. Deion wouldn't be All-Pro in todays NFL. He isn't physical enough. He'd be lucky to make a Pro Bowl.

    some people are just delusional.. and he had the leeway to slap WR's around, yet he wasn't physical enough to make the Pro bowl now.. interesting take..

    Hah, I was just about to lay out this exact Madden scenario!

    This cannot be a legit rumor though, can it? That would be absolutely insane. What happens when Sherm needs his second contract and Revis is on the team? You guys know Sherm wants to get paid, and he is not going to take much, if any less than what Revis is getting. Are we going to use a third of the cap on 2 CBs? Doesn't make sense...

    No Browner wouldn't play in the slot, but Kam isn't moving either. No reason at all to move pro bowl caliber players out of position.
    Sherman and Revis would play outside in our base package, with Revis sliding inside for our nickel package (making room for Browner).

    We would still need to identify a weak side linebacker who can rush the passer and not be a liability against the run (this or DE should be our first round pick). Henry Melton could still be a target in addition.

  • Also, given that Seattle typically plays a single high zone defense, Kam plays a hybrid SS/Will position as is.

    We can figure that out next year, but keeping Sherman would be my preference. If Revis doesn't play like a 15 million dollar player than the decision is even easier. If he does play like a 15 million dollar player than our Super Bowl victory will be the biggest thing in Seattle sports history. If we can't afford him or he decides to walk we will have a 3rd round compensatory pick and a superbowl. Good enough for me.

  • Flynn and Browner or Lane (Jets choice) and our 2nd for Revis and the Jets 3rd.

    IF and I repeat.... IF we are interested. That is what we are offering. You know it as well as I do.

  • IMO the best defense to use against spread and read opinion attacks is a 4-2-5 or Rover defense. Where your "Rover" is a hybrid SS/Will. So he strong against the run and pass.

    If I was a Defensive Coordinator, and instituting this defense to combat the growing trend in the NFL. Kam would be my first choice to Play "Rover".

    I highly doubt Flynn is apart of the deal. The Jets are over the cap. and already have 12+ Million invested in the position. And 7 million, and that team has 19 million in a position that doesn't have a clear starter. Their GM is a cap specialist no way he includes Flynn. It doesn't make $$$ sense.

    You are correct, however, if they bring in Matt Flynn's 5.25 million dollar cap hit they would also be deducting Revis's $6, Sanchez's $14, and Tebow's $6 million.

    That's a net decrease of almost $21 milliIon. I understand this number may be subject to cap penalty, but only if they don't find a trade partner for Tebow as I believe Sanchez can be cut at any time without penalty after he restructured last year (might be wrong on this).

  • http://www.thenewstribune.com/2012/04/2 ... -list.html

    I think i've made it pretty clear in MANY threads what i feel about moving players to new positions when they play at a pro-bowl or all-pro level at their current position.

    I think many who think otherwise have a have a cake and eat it too mentality. You like Browner and Kam, but don't want to lose them if a player that is arguably better comes along and insist that the best solution is to have them switch positions. This isn't Madden. They are not going to have the same physical attributes at the new position. New position, new skill set. You have every right to suggest it, but i have every right to counter it.

    This is the salary cap era. If you want to be good long term, you are going to need to mix and match what your team can excel at.

    As an example We choose to have big physical corners, which means we are at risk when we play a burner WR. Whenever we do, someone will suggest moving ET to CB. No, you don't. You pick and choose your poison, and do your best to limit your vulnerabilities. We have an All-Pro safety in ET. That means he's the best, at safety.

    A lot of players contracts are coming due, and many are due a big payday. We can't keep everyone we like.

    The Jets are trying to clear cap room, not add a big contract for a big contract.

    If this happens we're giving up picks.. maybe Lane since he's cheap

    Cutting Sanchez does nothing. They're stuck with his salary no matter what. They can cut Bart Scott + Calvin Pace and free up $17M .. but still.. you've subtracted 3 key guys from a defense that isn't getting any better. They wouldn't take on Flynn at that salary.

    Idzik is going to want to build the Jets up similar to how PC/JS have built this team up - via the draft. They will want picks for Revis if he's moved.. guaranteed.

    We are sharing a brain today. This is never going to happen.

    Spotract lists Revis at $783K signing bonus - should hit Jets cap not ours

    Then it shows base salary of $4.5 million and misc bonus of $6.2 so potential cap hit removed is almost $11 million. So that is a $6 millino saving if they get Flynn

    Personally I think someone picks up Tebow of waiver or with a 7th rounder. I would be interested in a trade of Jets Tebow and 7th rounder for a 7th rounder lol - not sure if that is allowed. All to remove the cap hit

    Now Tebow is only $4 million cap hit if he stays on roster with $2.5 for 2013 - not sure what part of that is guaranteed

    Regardless of their salary situation and how much in qb spot. They are not starting Sanchez next year, they are not starting Tebow next year. They need a qb.........

    He's not available.


    Of course Detroit that has cap issue wouldn't want to move a person underperforming his contract who is stuck in controversy every week........ :sarcasm_off:

    Yeah, and after all, Revis to the 9rs, Rams, or Cards would kinda help even the playing field in the NFC WEST.

  • 2 part post here:

    1) I am not going to say this is impossible, but it is very, very unrealistic. Salary and compensation (ie the 2 greatest factors) do not play in our favor. Yes, we have nice cap room, but we are also looking at some huge deals in the near future for our young corps (ET, RW, Sherm, etc). Likewise, you know that one (1) team will offer up something ridiculous, and that team most definitely will not be the Seahawks (see: history of PC/JS). We value our picks and losing a bunch of them is not the MO of this staff, and certainly not for a position of strength on this team (whether that is sheer talent or scheme manipulation).

    2) Even if Revis is a luxury (to an extent) you never, ever turn your back on making your team better. Think of it this way...would you trade James Carpenter (and I really like Carpenter) for Darrelle Revis right now? The resounding answer should be "well no sh!t Sherlock." In essence (granted hindsight), this is a possible scenario trading Revis for a 1st rounder. Now, you could obviously "miss" the chance of drafting a great player, at the same time. The point is, you know what you are getting with Revis, even if he is coming off of an injury. ACL, like Tommy John (which I've had) is so advanced nowadays, that it takes an (anti) miracle to not come back from it. Is it a luxury? Sure it is. But, you are also talking about a player who drastically changes what you can do on defense.

    All I am trying to illustrate, is that even though this is a highly improbable scenario, it does in fact make sense from a strictly "make your team better" point of view. I think Browner is a terrific CB, but he's not Revis. And like I said, further enhancing a strength, is never a bad thing, as long as it doesn't completely jeopardize and weaken a weakness.

    Now, the Seahawks getting involved to drive the price up for our rivals, that I can see.
