Sources close to New York Jets owner Woody Johnson have told ESPN that the Jets’ owner is open to trading arguably the best cornerback in the league this offseason.Speculation is because he only has 1 more year left on his contract. The Jets are $19 million over the cap, and Revis’ contract pays him $6 million next year. To make things worse for the Jets, Revis has a “non-franchise tag” clause written into his contract, so the Jets can’t let him play out his contract, and then slap the tag on him. The Jets believe that Revis will not re-sign with them, so if they don’t trade him this year for something, they’ll see him walk for nothing next year. Revis of course is rehabbing a torn ACL, so there will be concern for any team trading for him. Because of that injury concern, there is great uncertainty about what it will take to trade for him. My question is this… Should the Broncos trade for Revis? Personally, I think Revis is completely overrated. I think the only reason he is a “shutdown” corner is because the referees allow him to get away with holding and pass interference on virtually every play. Maybe it’s because he’s playing for an East Coast team (NY) that he gets away with it, but I have this funny feeling that if he signs with the Broncos, he’ll get flagged for all of those P.I. and holding penalties that he should be flagged for in New York. I don’t know about anyone else, but this has “Dale Carter” written all over it. We tried that already, and we watched it crash and burn. Add into Revis’ resume that he was allowed to act however he wanted and say whatever he wanted because of the completely laxed Rex Ryan discipline led team, and I think he would destroy the chemistry we have. PLUS, it means that Champ is out as a cornerback. Whether you think he should go to safety because of the Ravens exposing him or not, trading for Revis seals that deal. Would that mean that Champ goes in at safety and Moore is cut? Tell me what you think fellow Broncos fans. Should the Broncos trade for Revis? If so, what do you think the asking price would be, and how would the Broncos make it work? Sound off in the comments below.
