The San Francisco 49ers have traded Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, even though it can’t be official for two more weeks. The Niners now have acquired a couple of 2nd round picks in the deal, and reports are that they will now take a run at acquiring Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis according to Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports. The 49ers are among a handful of teams that have discussed making a run at Revis this offseason, according to two sources. In fact, the 49ers are poised to make a run at Revis even if it’s just for one season (although that could be problematic from Revis’ standpoint). The bottom line is that if the New York Jets are serious about retooling their roster as quickly as possible, getting a fistful of picks from the 49ers could be a fine answer. And if history is any indicator, the 49ers will be more than willing. I can see why the Niners would try to make such a trade.  They continue to take the next step as a franchise.  Now after losing the Super Bowl, the only thing left for them to do is win one. Revis would definitely shore up a pass defense that is susceptible to big plays and big play receivers at time, and he would definitely give them a mental edge against any opponent they face. The big question is would acquiring Revis be a rental, or a trade for the long haul.  Revis has made it known that he wants to be one of the highest paid players in football. How can the Niners pay Revis and still have to pay Dashon Goldson.  Can Jim Harbaugh and company convince Darrelle Revis to fall in line and take regular money for a shot at multiple championships?
