Of course, I don't see it possible since we never let information get leaked, and Ted isn't the kind of GM to aggressive in trade deals for actual players. Not to mention the 49ers are mentioned. Why would they already be talked about when they still have a game left to play?

However, there is a lot of value to be had in Revis if he really were to be given up for a mere 2nd round pick. We're talking the best corner the NFL here.

My View: Not gonna happen. Revis isn't exactly Packers people. Despite his obvious talent, the fact that he's already holdout on his contract twice says a lot about him. Not to mention we don't exactly have HUGE problems with our secondary. On that note, we can't afford him either... unless we got rid of both Woodson and Tramon, which actually isn't outside the realm of possibility.

The speculation, and I mean S*P*E*C*U*L*A*T*I*O*N is the utmost extent as we know the Packers don't have leaks in their personnel department, so it can't be anything but speculation of the media's part.

But it doesn't make any sense.. at least to me.

First.. there is the 9 million in a 2013 contract, for a team that has cap questions already, that is a large contract to absorb.

Second, the final three years are voidable if he reports to camp each season.

Third, he is coming off a ACL and may be a unknown for the upcoming season.

And finally, we have Williams, Haywood and House under contract and more than likely will keep Shields in the fold. Do we need to invest in Revis, with his almost yearly contract issues?

And I haven't even approached the return we would have to give to get him...

Quote:
Word surfaced earlier in the week that new Jets general manager John Idzik might be open to moving Revis, who can become a free agent after 2013. Several teams, including the Broncos, 49ers, Seahawks and Packers are mentioned as being potentially interested. The report also says the Patriots and Bills would be on that list, except for the fact that the Jets won't trade Revis inside the AFC East.

Source...


On the flip side.. flipping Woodson for Revis, if he can return healthy.. the contracts would be a wash and Revis would give us more coverage flexibility.


Summary, I don't see a fit here in Green Bay.

I think, aside from WR, the next best 'depth' position the Packers have is cornerback. Only way this happens is if Jermichael Finley and Charles Woodson get traded for Darrelle Revis and this isn't Madden.

Not to mention, Packers could have Revis and Deion Sanders in their prime and if the front seven can't consistently make their presence known, it won't matter if it was two Jarrett Bush's out there.


Focus on the front seven on defense and front five on offense, the rest cascades to looking gooder.

I dislike this fake leak...

I do not like Revis as a player. Someone who demands two new contracts in a matter of years can go elsewhere. He is a headache.

Could we please just look at talent instead of the whole "Packer People" crap? Dumping Woodson for Revis at the cost of a low second round pick is the focus of this whole thing. That is a major age and talent upgrade, of course I am taking into account that Revis makes a full recovery. Think of the ripple effect this makes on our secondary. We haven't that kind of corner tandem since Harris & Wood int their prime. If Revis could return to shutdown form - that takes a lot of pressure off our defense.

Think of the ripple effect when he demands QB money

Is it a reaction to Calvin Johnson?

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.

Ain't gonna happen. Ted won't give up a #2 pick for a 1 year player with injury issues who will make huge demands for money.

If they let Greg walk because he wants too much why would they give up a draft pick to bring someone else in who want top dollar? It is very anti TT.
