Rex has a brilliant defensive scheme. Have a really good CB that you can leave on an island, and have lots of good players in the front 7, and blitz them a lot to create pressure.

He's so groundbreaking and brilliant.

Yeah, because, you know, his first successful defense ever was last years Jets team.

Oh wait.

What 1 really good CB did Baltimore have that was left on an island his entire time there?


It's not like he's a HOF coordinator, but he's certainly a very good one. It didn't really take that long for the Jets to become a good defense, and even though Revis was there he brought in a ton of players to add to the scheme he wants to run.

The Lions should offer their next two First Rounders for Revis. Throw a third rounder in there too.

I'm sure they'd never trade him though... :(

Baltimore is a different method, but come on man, Baltimore is always stacked with talent on the defensive side of the ball.

He's always done a good job of playing to his D's strengths, but it's a whole lot easier when you have outrageous pass rushing and monster D-lines. Haloti Ngata alone is better than most D-Lines.

He is a good coordinator, I agree, but some people play him up as some defensive mastermind that has a system that makes scrubs into pro bowlers.

He made Adalius Thomas a pro bowler. What did that guy do after he left Baltimore?

Got old and injured. Are you really going to discredit Adalius as a specimen? Dude was an animal, he's played DT, and lined up across from Ocho Cinco in the same season.

Jets Owner says he doesn't think Revis will play for the Jets this season. Wow, I'm actually shocked.

Might be a Crabtree situation though, and around mid season he might get the itch.

Wow, with the Lions always picking in the first 5 of drafts, that would be a very tempting offer for any non-QB player.

except I'd bet almost anything that the Lions wont be picking top 5 this year.
I see what you're saying, but I think the Lions are on the rise. slowly, but surely.

That's all posturing. He's merely saying it to indicate to Revis that he's considered the financial ramifications he can dictate to Revis if he does indeed sit out.

Realistically, they're probably $5 or $6 million a year apart right now if the Jets offered $12 million a year.

Their band-aid deal they offered is 4 years $40 million again without guarantees determined, but he'd basically make that much on his current deal if they franchised him after the 3rd year and get almost all of it guaranteed. The agent's complaining about the Jets not offering any guarantees, but they want to handle that afterwards and seem flexible on guaranteed money.

It'll be interesting to seem how things shake out. I honestly think not handling guarantees before total compensation is done is kind of silly and a way to draw it out and see if he's going to skip the year or not...late in the game offer him a quarter more than Aso got a year without a ton guaranteed and see if he takes it/go from there.

Vinny Cerrato just made Al Davis look smart without looking stupid:

Nnamdi Asomugha's contract was a 3 year deal at the franchise tender rate when he signed it. (in other words, franchising him 3 years in a row effectively) But it's a lot less than it would have cost them to franchise him 3 times in a row.

He was talking about it to show the difference between Revis (under contract) and Asomugha (basically a free agent)

Actually the Raiders won't end up saving money on that contract if they exercise the team option for 2011 (versus what they would have paid for 3 franchise tags), but they kept their best player satisfied, gave him the security he wanted, and bought themselves some time to improve and justify to Nnamdi that he should sign a longer deal.

It's a really unique deal though, and shouldn't be the baseline for Revis' contract.

The franchise tag is already over 15 million a year.

What is the 2011 option?

The Raiders have to pay Asomugha the franchise number for quarterbacks in 2011 or $16.875 million, whichever is greater.
