Baron Batch is our only back under contract and we're $10M over the cap with less than a full roster under contract. CB is also perhaps our strongest position on the team.

Other than that, great idea.

The capologists will figure it out. That;s what they get paid to do. I'm not concerned at all about the cap. This stuff comes up just about every offseason. Something to talk about...

While it would be nice, i think there are alot of other teams who can afford to pay him top dollar. Now, if he wants a ring maybe he will take a good offer instead if a great offer and we may have the slightest chance to get him. There are just too many teams way under the cap unfortunately.

from everything I've been reading, Revis wants to be paid like a franchise QB. Plus he's coming off an ACL tear.

Again, people............
We need to be cutting SERIOUS money - not spending. If we traded for or signed someone like that, we'd have to give up at least half, if not more, of our current defense.
Not even likely on another planet, let alone this one.

The Steelers need another contract problem like they need another Limus Sweed.

Forget about other team's free agents unless they are real cheap. Sign those of your own you can and draft as best you can. That has mostly been the Steelers strategy in the past and it will likely continue.

Has that strategy worked? Only the Giants have as many Super Bowl wins in the past 7 years and the Steelers have been to one more.

Yeah, 8-8 and not making the playoffs sucks, but stuff happens. The Steelers could be right back in the mix next season without any major changes. Had it not been for blowing the second game against the Bengals, we would have been in the playoffs. Had Ben not gotten hurt in the Chiefs game, we likely would have beaten the Ravens at home the next game. A win in that game would have put the Steelers and not the Ravens in the playoffs. So who is in the Super Bowl then?

This isn't true. If Timmons, Woodley and Ben all restructure, we're under the cap and we don't even need to cut any of them. However, we'd be floating around the cap and couldn't test free agency and would essentially have the same roster as last year.

We're not in these dire straits concerning our cap that everyone is making us out to be.

Local Boy.....He might change his tune to be back home in his dream Uni....

High school career

High school accolades include the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review 2003 Player of the Year, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 2003 WPIAL Class AA Player of the Year, and 2003 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Fabulous 22”.

In the PIAA Class AA State Championship football game, he led Aliquippa to a come-from-behind 32–27 win over Northern Lehigh by scoring 5 touchdowns including 3 rushing touchdowns, a punt return, and the return of a blocked Northern Lehigh field goal attempt. He also completed a 39 yard pass, had a reception, and an interception in the game.[7]

In his junior and senior years of high school he led Aliquippa to WPIAL basketball championships, leading the team in scoring both years, culminating with a 25.2 PPG average his senior season. He also had the most interceptions out of any cornerback for high school.

Rex Ryan reportedly wants to keep Darrelle Revis

By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor
Published: Jan. 24, 2013 at 10:42 a.m.
Updated: Jan. 24, 2013 at 11:01 a.m.

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has often called Darrelle Revis the best defensive player in the NFL. It should be no surprise that Ryan reportedly wants to keep him.

My old boss, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, reports that Ryan doesn't want to trade Revis. The cornerback is coming off ACL surgery and only has one year left on his contract, so Jets owner Woody Johnson has made it clear he wants to explore all options with Revis.

To recap: The owner wants to possibly trade the team's best player. The coach wants to keep him. The general manager, who was just hired, is caught in the middle. The coach and general manager don't know each other.

On top of all that, Johnson wasn't exactly effusive in his praise to Ryan to prospective general managers in interviews. Former Broncos executive Ted Sundquist interviewed with the Jets and said that Johnson's wildly supportive news conference of Ryan was not reflective of Johnson's feelings behind closed doors.

"I think Mr. Johnson realizes there are weaknesses and deficiencies there," Sundquist told ESPNNewYork.com. "He was adamant about how the players love Rex, their connection with him. But then he was like, 'That said ... ' -- and he listed X, Y and Z, the things Rex needs to improve upon."

Ryan has two years left on his contract. Revis has one. It wouldn't be a shock if they were both working elsewhere in 2014.




The Gm is caught in the middle.......

It'd be nice but it's not gonna happen.
