Hypothetically, if we traded for Revis and signed him to a long term deal...he, Penn, Nicks, Jospeh, Jackson, and Penn would account for 50% of our entire salary cap. That's six guys taking half of the money...and none of those five guys are a QB. That is a recipe for disaster. For $12M-$14M we could sign three or four very good players that would significantly help our team, and we wouldn't be giving up a 1st round pick to get them.
That is just TOO MUCH for this team.I could see a team that was just a player or two away taking the chance but the Bucs aren't that close.
im different...because i think we are only a player or 2 away...with a little scheme tweak.
He won't get 14m from anyone. But I would make him the highest paid CB, no doubt. He's more than worth it.

He's more than worth it.Revis' last contract from four years ago averaged $11.5M.Nnamdi's contract from three years ago averaged $12M.Slightly above average guys like Finnegan, Grimes, and Dunta Robinson are averaging over $10M a year now. We gave weak ass Eric Wrong a contract that averages $7.5M just last year and he's not even considered a #1 cornerback!If you don't believe Revis will demand and get something that averages $13M to $14M a year, you are not being realistic. Salaries go up every year and he isn't going to settle for what he got four years ago or Nnamdi got three years ago.
Nicks and VJax were not overpaid. Heck I expected both of them to cost a whole lot more.
Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.
At some point, it stops being about price and starts being about value.
