According to Peter King, a source close to the Revis negotiations claims that the New York Jets can likely get the Bucs’ 1st and 2nd round picks in 2014 for Revis. Future picks are never preferred but the Jets are clearly in rebuild mode and are setting themselves up to revamp the roster in 2014. That will be when Mark Sanchez can come off the books and the Jets can draft a QB of the future.
A 1st and 2nd rounder in 2014 is a deal that I think John Idzik needs to make. He will not be able to resign Revis after all of this. Revis and his people have been notoriously difficult to negotiate with in the past. Take the best possible deal now and let’s move on. Build for the future. Continue to use the cap sparingly. And let’s get this ship righted!
