Buzz: Two more cornerback targets emerge

Talk about “cornering the market”. By the time all is said and done, the Jets will have been linked with every possible Antonio Cromartie replacement available. Here’s two more:

Bent, TheJetsBlog.com

Davis was thought to be on the brink of an extension with the Colts for around $10m, but local writers have been suggesting that those reports were “jumping the gun”. Pauline’s twitter feed implies that the Jets may have made a “hefty” offer for the 25-year old, who has also been linked with San Francisco. It’s possible the Jets might be being used for leverage here. Davis is probably best remembered by Jets fans for suggesting himself and Sean Smith were the best cornerback tandem in the NFL when he was with the Dolphins in 2011. Still, he’s a talented and well-respected player.

Munnerlyn is a scrappy and feisty 5’8″ corner who does a lot of his best work in the slot. Any Jets interest in him is presumably of an exploratory nature at this time, as they would ideally prefer someone with more size. Munnerlyn has been a leader in Carolina as they’ve transitioned into a good team over the past few seasons. Jets fans will recall that he responded defiantly to Santonio Holmes’ comments that the Panthers’ corners were the weakness of their defense and then returned an interception for a touchdown when the teams met last season.

Vontae Davis had a good year and is a decent corner but he gets hurt all the time (last year was the only season that he played in all 16 games). I hope the Jets don't over pay this guy. He's a tier two corner and shouldn't get more than 8 million max a year and that's still way too expensive. The Jets should stay away.

i can see the headlines now revis traded to pats for a 6th round pick revis willing to take 50% paycut

Revis was rated +18.2 by PFF last season, that led ALL CBs.

If shields is getting 10mil/yr, I'm sure Verner, davis, Rodgers - cromatie are all looking for similar money. I would give Revis a comparable deal.

A Revis deal with not much money guaranteed and like 5/35m is reasonable and cheaper than Verner. Rex would convince darrelle to come back. Hahaha not happening guys I love him too but there's no way idzik does this. Revis doesn't want to come back anyway.

Schefter reporting Revis being released if bucs can't trade him.

Do we make a play for him now that he's been humbled?

There's a thing in the scouting and NFL community called a "super unit", does anyone know what that is?


I'll give you a hint, it looks something like this:


CB Alterraun Verner or Vontae Davis

CB Dee Milliner

SLOT CB/Nickelback Captain Munnerlyn


Pick Your Poison. Its not a matter of if or even when someones gonna getcha, its only a matter of who.

lol.. Manish still on twitter guessing his azz off.. this dude should just go off line and piggy back schefter or one of the big boys.

As I stated he is still elite.  I would take him, but would he come home?

harold

@Brad Jerris


Likely he burned that bridge by calling Idzik a liar.  But maybe that was the grand scheme to get Richardson and get Revis back the next year.  We can only dream.

@Kyle Suta  hes never coming back hates the organization and the fans...remember he did an interview talking about how jetfans being mean to him on twtter

@Kyle Suta


Revs is still considered elite.  He will likely get more than Verner or at worst a very similar deal only because he will be released after F/A starts.

@Brad Jerris  i guess the bucs were never 100 percent sold on revis thats why that 3rd and his contract were never guarenteed 

harold

@jake100


Maybe we get him if he is realistic...I forget this is Revis nevermind.

@jake100  i hope you joking...that would be a waste of 16 mil and 1st and 4th on the bucs behalf

That sux, I really wanted that early 3, this draft is so deep it was like a middle 2

The Eagles tried this a couple years ago and it didn't work out too well.  Give one F/A CB and I am good.

@Marvel  manish had that one weird tweet quoting cromartie as saying door is still open for a possible return to the jets but if you go to cromarties twitter page he aint saying nothing like that

@jake100 just funny how the last couple years around this time we are talking about how revis is somehow affecting this team

@harold @jake100  Sucks to lose that extra third round pick...This is a deep draft but two third rounders was really a nice thing to have. Revis has been miserable in Tampa and I'm sure he wants out too but let's not forget who Darrelle Greedis is...Held out on his rookie contract, held out on the Jets numerous times, made them look incompetent on Hard Knocks and is a straight up me first kind of player. It was funny when he made a comment about Richard Sherman not being a team player after his tirade at the NFC championship. He clearly doesn't have a clue what that means. With all that being said. Damn! If he's released the Jets should still try to resign him as long as they include a provision in his contract that states 1) that he can never hold out ever again and 2) that he wears a muzzle for the entire season...With all that said Revis loves the limelight. He wants to be an actor when all is said and done. That's why I see him either signing with the 49ers, jets or yes even the giants.

He is elite, but get the come home crapola out of your system, it's not happening.

@harold The Eagles just had the wrong guys, Harold, right idea, wrong players. Nnamdi was supposed to be the lead dog in that group and he turned out to be a dud. Now look at Seattle, thats what it looks like when you do it right, with the right guys.

@rstysanchz @Marvel  Considering these guys are wrong all the time and never accountable, they sure go to great lengths to avoid potentially being wrong.

@jake100


I don't there is more than a 5% chance and that is because Rex is the coach.  If he were not here it would be zero.

@Bent  yeah because he will be on the team again after the 3rd day so you might be right

Bent

Pretty dumb risk to take just for a mid round pick...and depending on the wording of the trade agreement, that might not be effective anyway.

@jake100 @Bent  if the bucs cut him tomorrow and resign him on thursday that would be the biggest f.u. to the jets

I am saying you do not try and duplicate it.  You build the rest of your team.  You continue with a CB on a rookie deal in Kyle Wilson in the slot.  You get one quality CB and you upgrade the unit.  We need to upgrade the ILB spot more than we need an additional CB in your scenario IMO.  We lack speed in the middle and we can't fix that by signing someone for more money to play nickel-back.

dobermite

Harold, just because one team gets lucky and builds a super unit on the cheap, that doesn't mean you can duplicate it on the cheap, if it was that easy everyone would be doing it. Its like people who say you shouldn't draft a QB in the TOP 5 because Montana was a 3rd RD Pick or Brady was a 6, like duplicating that stroke of luck is realistic. Its not. Most the time if you want greatness, you have to draft it high or pay for it, but you can't build a franchise around wishful thinking and somebody else's dumb luck.

@dobermite @harold


They didn't have high priced players at CB that is the difference.  It is bad to spend this much money on one position.  That is the larger point.

@Bent hopefully hes right about one of the cornerbacks we are interested in... i feel like we should replace cromartie with a proven veteran
