Buzz: Niners Have Discussed Revis

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo!, the Niners are one of the teams that have discussed trading for Revis.

The 49ers are among a handful of teams that have discussed making a run at Revis this offseason, according to two sources. In fact, the 49ers are poised to make a run at Revis even if it’s just for one season (although that could be problematic from Revis’ standpoint).

Cole also notes that the Niners have 12 draft picks, including the one they just got for Alex Smith.  Because of their sheer number of picks the Niners have, Cole is right in that if any team is poised to make a play for Revis, the Niners would seem likely.

Of course, the problem is that the Niners are not a team that generally spends gobs of money on free agents in their current incarnation under GM Trent Baalke … so the Nate Clements contract isn’t a consideration when it comes to current regime.  Even so, if the owner sees the value of bringing in a player like Revis, then it might not matter what the GM thinks.

The Niners are a real possibility for the a trade with the Jets, but I think trade compensation would be the low hurdle.  The high hurdle is getting Revis and a team like the Niners to agree to a new deal.

They don't have the cap space to sign him. 

Too bad. 

Pugh is our most reliable tackle option at this point.  Let's not kid ourselves - Flowers has not played a down in the NFL and expecting him to be a serviceable LT in his first 8 games is wishful thinking.

What about the guy that's supposed to be the best from Canada (CFL)?  Does he fit anywhere, or was he just a long shot?
 Brett Jones?

Just not cost effective for the NYG's... but is a perfect 1 year fit, if Mathis would go for a 1 year, $2.4 M G'd, plus $100K game bonus = $4 M for 16 games.

Pugh / Mathis / Richburg / Schwartz / Flowers, or

Flowers / Mathis / Richburg  / Schwartz / Pugh...

would be our best 5 O-Linemen on the Field, ALL 5 playing their natural positions.

@Skookaloop Wishful thinking. Why would Mathis go for a 1 yr deal for 2.4 Mil when he could have a multi-year deal for over 5 Mil per year?

@Freshfighter96 @SNYGiants This shouldn't piss you off as much as not signing McCourty, a NJ guy who just needed a few more Million in salary which was otherwise forked over to several special teams' players (who probably won't even make it to the last cut).


JR should have shackled McCourty in the Giants' offices and not let him leave until he signed a contract. McCourty's also a nice kid!
