Default Is now the time to trade Troy?

I know that most of Steeler Nation will think that the idea must be blasphemy. I will probably get flamed hard for this idea. However, think about it for a bit:

1) Troy looked pretty healthy at the end of the year (could make teams very interested and give good value for The Steelers).

2) He has a large cap hit (could really use that leverage to sign players).

3) He still has a couple of years on contract (again value for possible teams to trade).

There might be quite a few teams still interested in picking him up now before he deteriorates altogether. If there is this much buzz about a guy like Revis who is injured and old, imagine what a team would give for Troy. We would probably still get some high draft picks for him.

What are everyone's thoughts?

Revis is 27. Troy turns 32 in April. Now who is old?

I believe his potential to make plays next season is more than enough reason NOT to trade him. Technically speaking, yes, now WOULD be the time to trade Troy. But they won't.

As for being flamed: It's a good discussion point. You're not suggesting that you'd like him to be traded, you're only asking whether or not now would be the time, and the answer is yes, in my opinion. I don't believe they will, however, and I wouldn't be happy if they did,

I stand corrected. However, Revis is still not healthy and can't run, yet. Troy just finished the season on the field looking healthy. Thank you for pointing that out.

I, too, would not be happy if he got traded (see signature). The NFL is a business, though. If the Rooneys were shrewd businessmen, they would seriously consider trading him.

When he's healthy, he has shown that he's still one of the best in the game. And he's healthy in his last few games.

He's the core of the Steelers defense and no reason to trade him. Given his contract and age, the Steelers won't get equal value back.

Revis is a Cover Corner and one of the best. They are very hard to find.

Troy plays a a much different role at safety for the Steelers. It is yet to be seen if he can excel this year the same way he has in the past.

The level of talent is not near what it used to be on the Steelers Defense and this may limit his role as he played it in the past. ( i believe this happened to a degree last year but was not as noticeable because he rarely played)

I say not to trade him. I think he still has more left in the tank and would like to see him in a Steelers uniform at least another year.

Troy is from California and I doubt he'd mind much to be traded to the 49ers. SF has 14 draft picks this year, after spending one on Boldin. They are either going to trade more draft picks for players or swap some for picks in future years.

I love Troy, but I'm just sayin'.
