Wishful thinking. We'll go in with the same old defense and count on the draft, like every year. Every year it's like "Oh man, ____ is a free agent or being shopped, how can we get him??" We can't. What's the biggest trade we've made in the last decade?? Lefty? McFadden? It's not in the DNA.

The Steelers could feasibly give up those picks. But the bigger issue I have is finding a way to pay the man.

Exactly, we can't pay what we have now.

I wouldn't trade Wallace for Revis let alone trade a 1st and 2nd round pick for him. He is the best corner in the NFLand iI would love to have him but not for 16 million a season. He can only cover one receiver and that means 3-4 others are open. I can't see spending that much money on a position that didn't really a game changer. I would rather have the top rushing line backer who will disrupt the QB the entire game instead of the top corner who takesone rreceiver out of the game

Well said. I also would not risk all that $ on Revis because I fear he may be the type of player who can cause distress in the locker room. I remember when he complained about wanting a new contract. Revis went public with it, continually crying to the Jets and to the public how he deserved a new big deal. I just feel like if teams did not give in as fast as the Jets did, he would negatively affect the team. So we're going to spend $16 million a year on that? No thanks. I don't believe the Rooneys would have any of that.

I heard Damien Woodey talking about this.

Contract & hold-outs aside (which is my major concern with him).

Woodey said that Revis is the BEST player he's ever seen... and, as Woodey said, "I played with Tom Brady." Woodey added that Revis's skills are unmatched; he's the best player in the NFL.

But...

Woodey went on to say that while Revis could take one receiver out of the game... ONE receiver... a premier pass-rusher can destroy an entire offense, by taking the QB out of the game (in turn, taking ALL of the receivers out of the game). And thus, if Woodey were going to pay huge money, it'd be for the league's best pass-rusher.

Exactly. It's almost as if there are players that abide by the saying, with great reward comes great responsibility. Yet alone Revis would be a great risk as well.

Even for $16 million, a team could probably get 2 decent to above average pass rushers. I don't know off the top of my head what guys like Pierre-Paul, Mario Williams, Justin Tuck, et al. make, but I can't imagine it's $15+ million per season.
