Again if wrong area please move it. Given that Revis can opt out after the 2013 season and personally I think he'll want to leave this train wreck, or hold us for ransom...I know if I were him I would. So here's my question. If you could trade Revis for at least the value that Palmer got, a 1st this year and a conditional 1st in the next, would you pull the trigger? Corners are one of the most valuable assets in todays game and Revis is second to none. Obviously if you think this team is a contender next year you don't pull the trigger. I personally don't think so and personally think we'll lose Revis either way so might as well get something for him. This is not a good year, IMHO for 1st round picks, and I'm not sure what 2014 looks like this far in advance for the first round. So personally I'd try and get a first and second in 2013 with a conditional 2nd going to the team we trade with so that if Revis either opts out or doesn't resign with the team they get our 2014 2nd round pick. But in reality and trade involving Revis and getting worthwhile value would require Revis restructuring as part of the deal. The question is would Revis restructure? would he resturcture in a way that allowed us to get real value in a trade? What is Revis's real value? Assuming he's healthy of course, and ACL isnt' a bad injury and with modern surgery they can come back stronger than they were before, case in point some RB in Minnesota . MCL on the other hand would have killed his trade value. Of course where a team is drafting has a lot to do with his value as well. You'd get more picks probably by trading to a lower drafting team, but you'd get a higher quality pick trading with someone at the top of the draft. Then you have to figure in the cap hit for trading Revis. But, and this is why I chose the draft section to put this. Potentially you could get a first and second round pick, with the right team, for Revis. An interesting choice might be the Rams. They have two first round picks in the 2013 draft. Maybe approach them for one of their firsts and their second. That would net us, potentially, 2 firsts and two seconds and if we played our cards correctly we might be able to parlay that in to 2 late round firsts and pick up at least a 2nd and a third, maybe two seconds depending on situation. Potentially we could parlay that all to 2 mid to late firsts and 4 seconds, or 2 mid to late first 3 2nds and 2 3rds. considering how deep the middle of this draft is, and the number of holes that we have and our limited cap space, this might be the ideal method of making ourselves competitive if not in 2013 at least in 2014. So assuming 2 firsts, 3 2nds and 2 3rds. Try to stay above pick 20 with one of the firsts. and draft something like this. 1a Chance Warwick OG 1b Alex Okafor if available or Chase Thomas. I've seen a number of mocks with Okafor going in the bottom 12 of the first. 2a whoever is left on the board of Eric Fisher, Jonathan Cooper, Larry Warford or Dallas Thomas (pretty much in that order) 2b my developmental QB Tyler Bray (he's got some flaws but I really like his pluses and his biggest flaw is footwork and that can be coached.) 2c Shane Skov or Sean Porter 3a whoever is left at the time between Stephen Taylor (probably gone) Mike Gillislee, or Christine Michael. If those are all gone then go with best of Dallas Thomas, DJ fluker, or Oday Aboushi at Tackle. 3b If a RB was taken in 3A then take the best remaing tackle form 3A. if those are gone go with best available of Kenny Stills, Da'rick Rogers, Steadman Bailey, or Jordan Matthews WR. 4 if Desmond Trufant (unlikely), Bildi Wreh-Wilson are available take them, if not and WR was not taken in 3b take the best WR otherwise draft Mister Cobble or Abry Jones (latter is unlikely to still be there) 5 take best of Bacarri Rambo or Dj Swearinger 6 Lutzenkirchen 7 take the most highly rated player before the draft that has fallen to this point, ala Burfict last year. Most 7th rounders don't stick anyways so it's a low risk very high reward proposition. There are a couple options and could net us a third or second rounder, but the cost would be too high for what we'd get in return. Just an idea and thought process. Of course it would all depend on having willing trade partners and such.
