Default Can the Jets pay Revis already?

I'm wondering if this is going to last into the season and possibly screw up the Jets super bowl hopes. I'm seeing the jets media guys start to downgrade what Revis did (Cromartie can be that good if he keeps this up) - the reports are that the Jets DB's look fantastic, and a lot of that is clouded by waht the team sources say - clearly the other DB's are getting played up, Cromartie is solid but he's like 1/15th revis. It's nowhere near the same.

Are the jets really going to let this derail their season?

I heard Revis is looking for Asmougha money.. Insane amount of $$..

Jets should do a front load contract and pay as much money as they can in the non-cap years as they can.

You can sort of blame this on Al Davis. Revis wants to be the highest paid CB in the NFL, which is fine, at worst he's 1B to Namdi's 1A. But the contract Namdi got is just insane, he makes like $14mm per, the next highest paid CB makes something like $9. It's an artificial inflated market thanks to Davis and now the rest of the league has to compete with it.

Which is why Al Davis needs to die or let someone else take over everyday operations.

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

Did anyone hear Woody Johnson(Jets owner) on ESPN? He said his gut feeling is that Revis won't play for the Jets this season. I guess you can only take that with a grain of salt but this kind of gives you an idea of the Jets stance. They've done this before, Revis is asking the wrong team for a fat contract..

I think they need to blame themselves more. He was just fine and dandy making his current salary. But instead after the season they said they were going to make him one the highest paid CB. I blame the Jets management more than Al Davis. But Davis did really screw them over.

The real problem is that its the perfect team. New stadium, shared rent with the giants in the NY/NJ area, and uncapped year means that money really shouldn't be an issue.

Now I wouldn't want to pay him 15 mil but its hard to argue against it. Like what was suggested before they should be able to front load the contract or work out a pay increase for this year.

If the team decided to chance it and starts off poorly any contract given to him won't be enough to save the season. Win wise and the PR hit they will take

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

this is all people are talking about on sports radio now and from what I am understanding it is exactly what IL said...Revis wants Aso money, and Aso's contract is beyond retarded...

Revis is demanding to be the highest paid CB...

the Jets are refusing to give him more than Nnamdi...


Al Davis has done something right...he shut down another team's CB...

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

I fully understand drawing the line in the sand, not being ridiculous, not allowing the players to demand too much. Draw that line. with the NEXT player after you pay Revis.

Did the jets think when they said they'd redo his contract, and called him the greatest thing ever he'd expect a tiny raise?

If the jets can pay it? they should...

They are about to be contenders for real..... they cant lose their best player at this time...

it will hurt the Jets more if they lose Revis.....

If they can find a way to pay him, they should do it....

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

I read in the Washington Post that he wants to be the highest paid cornerback in the NFL. Thatís a crap load of money. But he is the best CB in the league and can single handedly win you games, so I think it is worth it

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

Two years ago people put Nnamdi as the best CB in the league, he got his contract, and then was overtaken according to most by Revis as the best CB in the league. Do the Jets feel dumb if another CB comes along and takes the top spot? If Revis' production falls next year like Nnamdi's did slightly this past year?

Default Re: Can the Jets pay Revis already?

There are so many issues here that people are not taking into account.

You have an uncapped year but how will that affect the cap after the CBA...

Revis wants Namdi money. Thats not going to happen. Yes Al ruined the market for elite corners. Namdi isnt even as good as Revis. Aso plays on one side of the field where Revis follows the best receiver most times anywhere on the field. Most of you cant really understand what that means and the difficulty of playing left, right, and slot. The Jets gave him a rookie front loaded contract that he received most of his money. Because of that he has a lower base salary now. The Jets didnt short change him in the least. He still has more money available for him to make based on incentives but if he doesnt report as of today based on his rookie contract he will lose a year of Free Agency.

Revis is the best corner in the league. But he isnt playing one of the most immediate impactful positions in the league. The Jets can still win without him. The Jets are better with him obviously. If you dont remember Champ Bailey was the best for a long time but he started out with Washington and ended up on the Broncos.

The Jets also have to resign Mangold, Holmes, Braylon, Shaun Ellis, and Cromartie. Mangold is considered an elite center now we have to resign him as the top Center in the league? Thats going to eat up more cap space. The point of that is now the cap is going to get destroyed and the team will have to cut corners on other phases of the team to sign these 2 guys. If the Jets had a better track record with past players we wouldnt be in the position.

The fault of the Jets was how they handled some of the players when it was time to get paid they were either cut or traded; Coles (traded), Baker (cut), Faneca (cut), and Leon Washington (season ending injury & traded). Especially Leon who was playing out his contract and had a season ending injury. He gets traded or he would hae been cut by the Jets never seeing the guaranteed money he was suppose to have potentially earned. This is why the Jets FO has a negative image amongst their own players because how they treated other players.

I think He should take 12mill and be happy until a new CBA is agreed upon.

Elvis Dumervil is fortunate he got his money now so he isnt in the same position he has a secured future.
