Revis is great but we had Revis in 2011 and we couldnt stop the run and got pummelled. New England run D is worse than ours EVER was...something to keep an eyePRESENT DAYJohn Idzik and the Jets have to go get us 22 GOOD football players, but they got to start moving quickly. Patience is a virtue but the parade is passing by...MOVE YOU ASS IDZIK williamg1 5pts Break a leg, Revis! johnnyl65 5pts JetsInsider.com @JetsInsider 1mRT @MMehtaNYDN I'm told free-agent TE Brandon Pettigrew will have a deal in place with a team shortly. #nyj #jets #nflAnybody hear something from a more credible source? 5pts So... What to do with a Jets' Revis jersey now? Ritual burning? Sew "SUCKS" on the back of it? hazard2012 5pts Thought getting Revis was critical for a 'win now' mentality, but it's obvious Idzik and Woody said NO! to Rex's pleas. Time to move on, but it may not be entirely fair to accuse Revis of being both an egotist and a traitor. He's only the former. Can't really blame the guy for signing with the enemy NE if Jets weren't interested in him, period, as seems the case. Grab a second-tier CB like Munnerlyn, Brown or either Cromartie (Cro' might actually be best of this bunch, though they might actually take a flier on Browner), to hold the fort and then draft Rex's corner of the future a round or two earlier than we otherwise might have liked. Plenty of DB's in this draft. jaym 5pts @AlbertBreerCalling the Revis deal a 2-year, $32M contract is misleading. His cap number for '15 would be $25 million. It's really a 1-year, $12M deal. jaym 5pts @AlbertBreerBreakdown of Revis' deal: He gets $10 million to sign, $1.5 million base salary, $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses up to 15 games for '14.@AlbertBreerIn 2015, he has a $12 million roster bonus due of 4/1/15, payable if his option is exercised by end of '14 league year. $7.5M base for '15.@AlbertBreerIn 2015, he has a $12 million roster bonus due of 4/1/15, payable if his option is exercised by end of '14 league year. $7.5M base for '15.@AlbertBreerBecause there's the option on Revis' deal, I believe that splits his cap hit, and makes his cap hit $6.5 million for 2014. levi 5pts I would bring steve smith in for a couple years if the price is right. He's kinda crazy but I like that. jaym 5pts Andrew Brandt @adbrandtNE has an option on Darrelle Revis for 2015 at $20 million, per @TomPelissero. Thus if not exercised, no compensatory pick for NE. Bent moderator 5pts Darrelle Revis' deal with#Patriots includes an option for 2015 at $20M, including a $12 roster bonus. juunit 5pts Oh no! Jesse Palmer is gonna be doing the SEC network games with Brent Musburger. THEY JUST RUINED BRENT MUSBURGER! rkj473 5pts Lol at Austin Howard saying one of the reasons for signing in Oakland is because of Tony Sporano, he must have a short memory. funkymonk 5pts Dammit, Sproles to the Eagles. I was REALLY hoping we could land him. Eagles gave up a 5th rounder for him, I would've been extremely happy to give that up to get such a dynamic player into MM's offense. levi 5pts Good luck teaching Revis the "Patriot way" Billicheck. He only knows the "Mevis way" MPTG_Frank 5pts Completely off topic. And probably obvious to most. The current host of this website provides horrible service/support to tablet aficionados. bobbyj 5pts I'm sick. Revis's camp put it out there that he wanted to play for the Jets, they were his team of choice. The Jets never even attempted to call/contact the Jets....I was really hoping that Woody would let Idzik & the personel dept handle all personel moves...Woody puts the C in Circus. It all starts at the top. Just like the Matt Slason deal, Woody didn't want him here, didn't matter that we had no one to replace him, he walked for nothing...New England just won the AFC East again, they should send Woody a gift basket. Wait until Milner goes down w/another nagging injury. Once Sanchez is released we will have, as most if not more cap space then any team in the NFL, & we get.....Decker wow, that's gonna tackle the Pats & the AFC East crown, I'm done Joe/Orlando 5pts There is only one Revis jersey in my house: my three year old daughter's. I intend to put it in freezer for the week leading up to our first game against the Pats. peepers 5pts Burning mine. Alasdair Barratt 5pts @jaym Except:they won't get a draft pick after this season if he leaves.they have to convince him to negotiate long term when his 2nd year will pay him $20m (good luck)if he does leave NE will have a $5m cap hit in 2015 and no CB if he's cut juunit 5pts @jaym $500,000 in per game roster bonuses up to 15 games implies quite a bit more money than $12m. Bytor 5pts @jaym Sooooooh, Belichick is not a genius GM and is desperately trying to keep up with Denver's moves? Bent moderator 5pts @jaym And I expect in reality it's just a two year deal so $5m of his signing bonus won't count against the cap until next year.A two year $32m deal? Oh he's still getting his 16m? (although he won't get it).Yep, this is ALLLL about ego. johnnyl65 5pts @jaym That's obscene,Revis is a compete ego maniac. rkj473 5pts @Bent There is no way the Pats even consider doing that. Revis would be back in free agency in a yr. harold 5pts @Bent $12 roster bonus that is much less than I was expecting johnnyl65 5pts @Bent Team option? Bent moderator 5pts @juunit "Good afternoon, I'm Kirk Herbstreit" - Brent Musberger, 2013 Bytor 5pts @rkj473 Well he can't say I'm going to a place that's giving me the best chance to win. The translation is "I'm going to a clown franchise but look at all the loot I'm getting!" Bent moderator 5pts @rkj473 Haha. He is a decent OL coach but that's still funny. bobbyj 5pts The Jets never attempted to contact Revis, my error. We had a chance to really hurt the Pats, they weren't great defensively w/Talib, they would have had no one, Woody helped them upgrade, not down grade there secondary/defense. 5pts @peepers Trashing it seems like a waste... Bent moderator 5pts @Alasdair Barratt @jaym I'd imagine this sets the table for Revis to stay next year with at least 12m from the roster bonus and they can negotiate his salary from there. If Revis proves he's worth 15m then reduce his salary to 3m and go from there. If he only proves he's worth 13m, reduce it to 1m. If he isn't worth 12m or won't agree to a paycut, he's gone. johnnyl65 5pts @juunit @jaym Must have meant 50,000 instead, that would be 800,000 as opposed to an unheard of amount of 8.m.. rkj473 5pts @johnnyl65 @Bent Has to be. Revis would coach the defense for 20M for a yr. rkj473 5pts @Bytor @rkj473 True, it sure isn't about winning a super bowl. All about the fat payday. I bet Howard could care less about Sporano or what he had to say. rkj473 5pts @Bent @rkj473 Just thinking about what Sporano's selling point would be to Howard. peepers 5pts I think it will be therapeutic juunit 5pts @peepers Donate it to charity then. Bent moderator 5pts @Hanknaples @Bent That's exactly what's happening here. He's getting 16m in name only and 12m in reality. Bent moderator 5pts @Hanknaples You think the Pats will (or even can) pay him $20m next year? Bent moderator 5pts @Hanknaples @Bent So if they cut him next year and refuse to pay him $20m you'll be criticizing the Pats for getting rid of a key veteran and refusing to pay him what they "owe" him, will you? bobbyj 5pts Idzik didn't have anything to say, this decision is all woody. You can see ? We have no starting corner opposite Milner, who may or may not be a good player, if he doesn't end up injuried. Revis took the same money more or less as Talib. It's a disgrace Alasdair Barratt 5pts @bklyndude @Bent @Alasdair Barratt @jaym I can see why Idzik didn't bight on this deal. It's all set up for Revis Part V (?) next spring. No way he's there on that deal, and no way he agrees to less money. bklyndude 5pts @Bent @Alasdair Barratt @jaym It's good for Revis and maximizes the money he can make...........but what a Pain in the A$$ he is. And what better way to promote team unity than to have one guy always looking for his next contract with a different team most likely.. Bent moderator 5pts @juunit @Bent @johnnyl65 @jaym Hahaha imagine if Revis actually thought he was getting the higher amount. Maybe that was the holdup. juunit 5pts @Bent @juunit@johnnyl65@jaym He left out the key part that says total of $500,000 in that tweet then. I'm sure the actual contract includes it. Although hopefully not, and Revis sues the Pats. Bent moderator 5pts @juunit @johnnyl65 @jaym So like 31,250 per week johnnyl65 5pts @Bent @juunit @johnnyl65 @jaym Got it,thanks. Bent moderator 5pts @juunit @johnnyl65 @jaym Juu - "500K in per game roster bonuses" means UP TO 500K (if you play all 16). juunit 5pts @johnnyl65 @juunit@jaym I'd assume Breer got something wrong there. I wouldn't think the Pats can even afford to pay him $19m. It would explain why he took such a short-term deal though.
