First and foremost, I think that we SHOULD trade for Revis and pay him a fair but smart deal. Ideally we should give up a 3rd, Blount and a conditional pick next year worth up to a 1st rounder. However, that is blatantly in the Bucs favor, and although the Jets have absolutely no leverage except for time before the remaining CBs are picked up by other teams, I do not see that happening. (In other words, even if all UFA CBs are gone and the draft happens without a trade, the Jets have absolutely NO leverage and should not bother trying to trade Revis.)
The Jets want this year's first round pick and more, but we should not scoff at them wanting it. A more realistic trade would more like this:
Bucs: 1st round pick (#13)
and a conditional pick in 2014 worth up to a 1st rounder (only if All-Pro season) but no less than 3rd
2nd round pick
This would give the Jets two top 15 picks, an extra 5th rounder, a good RB, and a solid pick next year (assuming Revis works out). Before going crazy over us giving up a 1st: this is an improvement (for the Jets) over the 2nd round pick we have reportedly offered, and the extra fifth is not a big deal (see Tandy). Additionally, the 2nd round pick from the Jets is 7th in the round, which we could use with our other picks to move back in the 1st if we want to. This is a deep draft where picks 25-60 are pretty much equal in talent, so we could just sit tight and take the best players available If we get two quality picks in round 2 (CBs will be flying off the board) and Revis, the only issue we will have left would be TE and/or DT, one of which we could get in round 2.
What do you think?
