Eh, Mario did it first. Next QB to sign a 120m dollar contract will be making Joe Flacco money. Nothin to do with their talent.

I don't see how the Jets won this. Of course no one will really be able to say until 2 or 3 years from now. Chances are whomever they select with the 13th pick is not going to be near the player Revis is (assuming he comes back strong from his injury).
Well, the Jets are moving into a multi-year rebuilding phase. This year they cut a lot of older, high paid players, and next year Sanchez will be out. Revis wanted a huge contract that they didn't want to pay for, so they get a 1st round pick at 13, and a 3rd next year. I don't think they could have done much better than that given the circumstances, an ACL tear on a player who relies on quickness and making cuts is not something to toy with. Revis could come back and only be 75% the CB he was, but no matter how he does the Jets just got more pieces to help them win in 2015 and beyond.

Quote:
If Revis doesn't pan out then the Bucs lost a 1st and 4th. Considering the number of 1st round busts there are each season I think it's worth the gamble to land whom some think is the best defensive player in the league.
Well if your team sucks at drafting then I guess it could be better to risk in trade rather than the draft. Personally I would rather have the 13th pick and capspace to spend on non-injured players.

Quote:
None of the contract is guaranteed so there is no cap risk if he doesn't pan out.
That certainly works in the Buc's favor, but the fact is they just gave up their 13th pick in this draft hoping that Revis will be the guy he was. That's a huge risk in itself, when they could have taken a CB at 13 for much cheaper over 4 years. The Bucs are flush with capspace, so I wouldn't worry too much about that, but they could have spent more to acquire some free agents this offseason if they actually believe they have a shot at a Super Bowl.
