Revis isn't as good as I thought Nmandi Asomugha was when he was still in Oakland. And I was wrong about Asomugha.

Is Revis a shut down corner? Sure. Is he one of the best around, today? Yes, that, too, probably.

Is he worth the price he'll demand? Absolutely not. With the quality of GB's front seven play, Revis could be a combination of Adderley and Wood (and he's not either) and the Packers would still be unable to stop San Francisco.

Remember where he plays. Remember how much anything coming out of the bog outside of the Great Apple Core needs to be discounted.

No, no, and no again. For a third, sure. For a late second, maybe. For anything more, including any starter other than an OL not named Sitton, it would be as foolish as....well, almost as foolish as drafting RB or QB in the first round.

IMO

I'd do it.

provided Woodson is out,

maybe toss Tramon in the deal and take it down to a 3rd.

Good corners are alot harder to get than good WRs.

Shields is a RFA, Tramon has not been worth his $$$ since 2011.

and Heyward is being payed peanuts for the next 3 years.

The Packers aren't one good corner from being a Super Bowl contender. They need a better front line on defense, which will make the corners look much better.

I read the Jets were seeking a 1st AND 2nd for Revis.

Quote:
What's the asking price? The Jets reportedly are seeking an exorbitant package including first- and second-round picks. While that's shooting for the moon on a player coming off anterior cruciate ligament surgery and entering the final year of his contract, there is no shortage of potential trade partners. The New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers are said to be among the teams "highly interested" in Revis.

yeah I saw that yesterday. Decided not to say anything as I couldn't see them getting that much. It is ridiculous.

when Green Bay traded for THE GREAT ONE, Atlanta only got a first for HIM.

lol there is a large difference there ... Brett Favre was a 3rd string quarterback who was partying it up hardcore. Darrelle Revis is considered one of the best cover corners in the NFL. Plus, most thought the Packers were foolish for sending a 1st round pick, even though they had two that year.

No single player (non QB anyways) is worth the amount of money some stupid franchise is going to give Revis. I don't see him agreeing to anything less than the 60m guaranteed that Mario Williams got in FA this year. I don't care if he's the best corner the NFL has ever seen. Teams don't do anything but screw themselves over with these massive FA contracts they do.

I'm skeptical about the legitimacy of Green Bay's interest, but I do see logic behind the suggestion. It's Green Bay's way of countering Calvin Johnson.


The Packers haven't had a problem beating the Lions with Calvin Johnson so I don't see how they would need to counter him. It's not like when the Vikings drafted Randy Moss and then they lit up the Packers on national television. The Packers have handled the Lions pretty well with CJ on their team.

Not only won't Ted do that, no NFL GM would do that. That's stupid. Nobody is going to trade for a player without agreeing to terms on a new deal first.

Also, Woodson's full contract was potentially worth $52 million. At the time, he was coming off multiple injuries and was apparently a bad character guy in the locker room.
