       Well, this is interesting to say the least. The word from the New York Daily Press is that the Jets will trade all-pro Derrelle Revis. How does this affect the Atlanta Falcons?      Well, it would appear that the top two trade partners are the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco 49rs. Both of these teams have expressed interest to the Jets, and the trade would require multiple draft picks. Atlanta has been able to go 15.9 million under the cap, leaving many of us wondering their next move. Revis is seeking anywhere upwards of 12 million per season. Initially, I balked at the idea of the Island coming down to the Dome, but how can I argue having the best defensive player in the NFL play for Atlanta? Revis, in my opinion is the best defensive back since Primetime…That’s right, I said it. Primetime! Is it worth the price? Folks, it would be similar to the Julio deal. That one worked out great, but can lightning strike twice? Let us keep in mind that the reality is that the Jets leaked this information in order to drive up his market. It is not cut and dry, but this is another fun rumor to add the the list. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts. The trade window opens in 6 days, for TD & Co. it is time for Atlanta to make their move.
