I think the point is regardless of whether the team is financially protected, us fans aren't protected. If Revis is released or plays so poorly he has to take a major paycut, it will mean the Bucs aren't playing well, and the fans will continue to suffer through more non-playoff seasons.
would you have felt more protective with the 13th pick in the draft?  maybe you'd have felt more protective with the capspace...and guys like abraham and freeney.   cant believe that awful dominik had the gall to go out and get the best CB in football.  he should have protected US!

The point is there is risk beyond wasting money. If Revis doesn't pan out, we fans aren't going to say "At least the Glazers don't owe him guaranteed money in 2016." We're going to say "SOAB can this team do anything right?"

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

even if he does pan out, some will say that

i thought the point was that fans will even find reason to complain about getting the best players in the NFL?

The point is we don't know if he's still one of the best players in the NFL. If he isn't, it won't be about the money wasted, it will be about the opportunity cost wasted of trying to win with a no longer elite Darrelle Revis being one of the best players on your 8-8 team.

and we dont know if the 13th pick would be a bust.  or if abraham is really washed up.  the point gets back to to fans will complain about anything.

The title of the thread is "What could possibly go wrong for Revis and the Bucs?" Like it or not, things might go wrong. That's life. There aren't any guarantees.

Thank God Rich McKay had the gall to trade two high picks to get one of the better WRs in the league since he failed to draft a competent one.  Sure it was short sighted since he only played 3.5 years for us and helped deplete the team of young talent but who cares?
