 It has been explained why his perceived value would be higher.

Also, for a second round investment, you potentially get a decent QB who has been groomed by the greatest HV/QB combo in NFL history.

Totally worth the gamble, and when you consider Free might be adios next year, and we might be lacking a rd1 pick, it makes even more sense IMO. And the By s can keep the vertical strategy as is. Mallett has cannon arm strength.

Tebow is worth a roster spot for Tampa. He can play backup, even for the next guy in that event, and will draw people into the seats.

Jettison the guy when people return to watch a quality product.

Here I disagree... Darrelle Revis is worth a roster spot for those reasons. He is THE best at his position and brings a sense of popularity to our team. We will have more segments on Live TV and we would get more recognition.

Tim Tebow might sell season tickets but he is an utter distraction. He will take attention AWAY from our other players and make Freeman more nervous to perform because everyone wants Tebow to play.

Since when is a "maybe second" which means "probably second" the same as a "Revis type price tag" ?

It’s going to look to some people like a different play every time we use it, but pretty soon they’ll be able to recognize it....by watching the official for the first-down signal.   -Vincent T. Lombardi

Best option is to switch 1st round picks w/ the Pats and we get Mallett.

Then why not sign Matt Cassell, Kevin O'Connell, Brian Hoyer, or Zac Robinson?

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

A second for Mallett is much better value than a first for Revis.

Personally, I'm not interested in Mallett. My impression of Mallett will always be the guy that went out late and skipped meeting with the Panthers before the draft and then left without ever meeting them. Sure, why would anyone want to meet with the Panthers? But still, a guy that irresponsible and with drug issues, I would not trust to be the QB of the future.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

How do you figure? Mallett has never thrown a pass in a game that counts in the NFL. Revis is the best CB in the NFL when healthy. Do you not see the difference there?

Mallett is healthy.   We might need a new QB next year but no draft picks because we gave them away for a player that was real good "when healthy".

The main difference I see is Mallett costs 750k per year and plays the most important position in football. Paying a second round pick and only taking on that small salary for a shot at a guy at that position is basically no cost, as long as the front office believes he can possibly be the answer at QB. The number of passes he has thrown in the NFL is irrelevant because you're committing so little to him and the payoff is huge.

Revis' cost is exponentially higher for an exponentially less important position. Whereas Mallett costs nothing in terms of salary flexibility, Revis costs you young, cheap players (the picks you're giving up to get him) as well as the ability to bring in free agents to flesh out the roster.

None of this is to say that I believe Mallett is the answer. I have no knowledge of his skills as a quarterback. If the team believes he could be the answer, giving up a second and getting him on a third round pick's contract is basically free. It's not even close in terms of the actual cost and opportunity cost of trading for Revis and the potential reward is much, much higher.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

That's when you fire the GM.

Well, if we don't get a potential replacement for Freeman this year, and if there are no picks left to land one next year if Freeman is gone, then someone should be held accountable.  Problem is, it'd take a long time to recover from that scenario.
