Darrelle Revis Rumors: Trade to Philadelphia?

Could Darrelle Revis be remaining in Green and White, but be moving down the East Coast a couple of hundred miles? A report out of Philadelphia is hinting at just that. A reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that the Eagles are sitting and putting the numbers together, in an effort to put together a trade offer for Darrelle Revis.

The Eagles could be a fit for the star cornerback, as the Eagles have plenty of salary cap room (around $18 million) to play with and get better with.  They are projected to have 8 to 9 draft picks after the compensatory choices are announced.  They also have room in the DB meeting room, as Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie is set to hit the free agent market.

So, Jets fans, what do you think?  Can the Eagles coax Revis into feeling comfortable enough to allow a trade to the Panthers?  Will the Jets do it?  What can we get back in return?  Nick Foles, maybe???  Please, any thoughts you guys and girls have on this issue, please hit us up in the comments section, or through Twitter.

    i’d really like to see us get 2 firsts or a first, second and third. he’s the best at his position. however at this point i’m tired of the drama. just get rid of him already. idzik should talk to hm and his ageants and uncle and cousins and whoever the hell else he’s gonna consult with, i guess he may as well bring along his buddy, that other jerky corner from seattle for the meeting. idzik can find out if they’re gonna be reasonable or not and if not just get the hell rid of him for whatever they can get before he starts screwing up the 2014 cap. we do not need him costing us money next year if he’s not here. period. we went 8-8 with him. if that were out goal i’m sure we could reach it without hm. good riddance. and yes, i know, i’d make a lousy gm.

      Nah, you wouldn’t be a terrible GM. I think the idea of trading him actually is a good one. We can’t have one guy hijacking the salary cap, and, therefore, this team.

      He’s a great football player but he needs to act like he plays.

        if he thought he could survive on a 7 year, $70 mil guarantee i’d say keep him, more than that and he can take his mercenary butt elsewhere, and the main goal should be to keep him from affecting the 2014 cap rather than what we get back.
