Well Dom has a draft conference on Monday, and my guess is if the Jets haven't gotten in to serious talks by the time the conference is started, it will be pretty close to too late. I honestly don't think anything less than 72 hours would be reasonable to get this deal done and frankly, I don't think Idzik will be that much of a jerk to Dom unless it's really Woody that's pulling the trigger on this.I'm not saying that the deal still might not happen in under a 72 hour window to the start of the draft, I just think that unless another team jumps into the deal, 72 hours seems to be the least amount of time that Dom should be willing to take. You are going to want him examined by several different doctors some of which are going to be outside opinions, and if you are going to pay 14m+ to a guy, you are going to want the best doctors. You can't assume that they are just going to be available at the drop of a hat. Plus there is travel time involved. I expect (hope really) the Jets to take this weekend to think about the deal and the offer and open serious negotiations some time on Monday (could be late Monday).
Working back from the draft, we can say the contract with us and Revis needs to be done by Thursday, Wednesday is a contract negotiating day, Tuesday is exam day and Monday a travel day for Revis and doctors.. That gives Idzik the weekend, deal must be settled by Monday morning. If Revis isn't spotted at a table at Burns with Schiano and Dom Monday night then it isn't happening before the draft.
why does Revis have to be greedy cause he wants big money?
This will impact the inclusion of Blount in a trade...http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/19/jets-reportedly-make-trade-offer-for-chris-ivory/Jets reportedly make trade offer for Chris IvoryRunning back Chris Ivory signed his restricted free agent tender with the Saints on Friday, which eliminated the slim possibility that a team would try to sign him to an offer sheet that would cost them a second-round pick if New Orleans opted not to match.It didn’t guarantee that Ivory will remain with the Saints for the 2013 season, however. The Jets hosted Ivory for a visit last week and they were believed to be interested in trading a late-round pick to New Orleans in exchange for the veteran running back.According to a report from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, that interest is strong enough for the Jets to go ahead and make just such an offer. They’ve let the Saints know what they’d like to give up for Ivory and the Saints will now likely decide whether that’s enough for them to part with a player they tendered at the second-round level to help ensure he remained under their control.Ivory would go from a crowded backfield in New Orleans to a crowded one with the Jets, although, as with quarterbacks, quantity and quality don’t really add up for the Jets. Instead of Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles and Mark Ingram, Ivory would have to beat out Mike Goodson, Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight. That’s an easier path to playing time on paper, but only if the two teams agree on terms for a trade.
