Posters are right about the cap in a few years. No Troy, Ryan Clark, James Harrison, Casey Hampton, Ike Taylor. The possibilities of not resigning Hood or trading or releasing Woodley if he has another bad year or someone shows more behind him leaves money to spend. This team is getting younger which equals more cap space. If we don't get Revis this year we can at least shoot for it when he is a UFA.

One thing for sure a trade would have to include a new long term contract and we would have to give up a #1 pick.
Apparently you know nothing about Revis. If by some slim chance he signs a contract as low as 10 mill if he has a good year next year you better believe he will hold out for more. That's what he's done since he's been in the league he's a huge asshole and tell me what team has won the Super Bowl in the last ten years with the best cb in the league. It's a huge waste of money that is the easiest position to take out of the game just don't throw to his guy. A pass rusher is so much more valuable and destructive to the opponent. Anyone who signs him for his money is stupid

Yes... but, they were "this close" to AP, Willis, and/or Revis.

Like I said, I like Timmons, but I love those three players.

Would you not trade Timmons for any of those three?

If I was the GM I wouldn't even take a look at Revis...he's too much money and I'm not giving up the farm for one player....in free agency I would look for players that fit in the system and continue trying to get some good players in the draft....

Get rid of Taylor. Let Lewis walk. Start Cortez Allen as #2. Problem solved.

Timmons is not a pro bowler that's why he's not there. He's not close to a pro bowler

Timmons didn't get VOTED into the pro-bowl. But to say that he isn't close, well I don't know how you could come to that conclusion.

All of the peopel pointing out Revis' diva attitude and hold out fever are right, he's not worth the hassle. Besides, chasing big name FAs isn't always the way to make your team better. Philadelphia threw a ton of money at Nnamdi Asomaugh, do you think they're happy with that deal right now? Yea, Revis is better than Asomaugh, but that means he'll require more money than he got, and as others have mentioned, as soon as he has an all-pro year, he'll be holding out and bitching for more money once again.

He's a great CB, but our secondary actually did good enough last year, we need a stronger pass rush in the defense we run. With the salary cap it's hard to have all star players at every level in the NFL. A lot of teams with great CB combinations (Jets, Seahawks) dont' really have any great LBs or pass rushers.

we had 10 games this past season keeping the opposing team under 200 yards in passing. 7 in a row, including RGIII, Dalton, Eli Manning, and Flacco (3 playoff QB's and the other a 2x SB winner). WITHOUT a good pass-rush!

I can understand excitement of getting Revis and trying to make the team better, but why spend all your money on a spot that isn't a weak position?
