My take: The NFL and it's salary cap make this type of thing almost impossible to pull off, especially in the Jets case. All SB money becomes accellerated from what I understand and they are already in a tough cap positon. Hey, if we could get Revis and get rid of say, Hawk and Tramon Williams, I'm all for it. I'll take Tebow and see if MM can make him more accurate. I'm sure Rodgers wouldn't have to worry about his job security.
The cap hit for the Packers for TW would be $2.4 million. $7.3 million for the Jets for salary and bonuses.This is a cap savings of $6.1 million for GB.The cap hit for Hawk would be $4.8 million for the Packers and $5.45 million for the Jets.This is a cap savings of $2.25 million for GB.Tebow has a salary of $2,568,875 with no signing bonus factored in. $895,000 for 2014.Revis has $9 million in salary and bonus money due for 2013 and no signing bonus issues.The net difference in salaries would be an increase of $1,181,125 for the Jets.The cap hit for the Packers would be:Williams - $2,400,000Hawk - $4,800,000Revis - $9,000,000 (although we'd probably do an extension)Tebow - $2,568,875TOTAL - $18,768,875Increase in cap for the Packers - $3,218,875
Someone (a reporter) asked TT about his reluctance to dip into free agency waters too much. I believe it was at his end of the year press conference.TT replied that players like Reggie White don't hit free agency anymore.Reading between the lines he said that if you want an elite player at a position, you need to trade for him now.And here is the Revis situation.15/85 that it doesn't happen. But still a chance. Slighly more than Lloyd Christmas's chance.... (And in real life, Jim Carrey did marry Lauren Holly!)
