I wonder who's forcing him to explore these trades? Man, have fun with Jerry Jones 2.0, Jets fans.

its almost as if this guys life force is directly linked to "ink time" in the news.

That's pretty much what I believe right now.

Not from tfa: "Due $9.5 million in 2013, the Jets would only take a cap hit of $2.5 million by trading Cromartie, instead of the $12 million hit they'd endure for dealing Revis. Cromartie is due a $2.3 million roster bonus on March 14, so a deal would have to be struck before then"

Someone must have told him that its smarter to trade Cromartie. Again, the Jets probably do need to hit the reset button and trade their largest cap hits for some nice draft picks. They're just so thin on offense, and of course butt fumbles.

Revis is crazy, coming off a major knee injury and his age means he's not going to get a shiat ton of cash.

Yeah, I read somewhere that there a LOT of chatter in the Jets' front office about trading either Cromartie or Revis. Would make a lot more sense if Cromartie was traded.

The sad thing is just how well he played last year. As someone who was forced the option of "watch the Jets or watch no football at all," I've got to say that Cromartie played phenomenally well after Revis went down. Wasn't a contract year, the offense was an actual joke, but he played as hard as anyone could.

Respect (thud, thud. points up)

Those guys should both have retired already anyway.

The Giants could use them.  and, hey, they don't have to move.

Might as well sell high then with Cromartie. They'll be a drop-off sometime with him.

Giants wouldn't give up the picks anyway and then pay large coin for Revis.

Also, about the Senior Bowl: I'm looking at that LB from BYU and the LT from C. Michigan and hoping the Giants can snatch either one.

No one will trade for them. They'll wait for the Jets to cut them, then resign without the roster bonuses.

The picks? Asante Samuel was traded for a 7th round pick in a situation not unlike Revis finds himself in. Given the contract and age of the players Cromartie may well command more trade value. If we accept the prevailing wisdom that Revis is primarily motivated by money, I would think a team that has lots of cap room, a new headcoach, and a need to make a splash with the fans is the most likely landing spot. Many teams that are ready to win are probably trying to carry over as much cap room as they can for standout guys as then finish their rookie deals.

I don't really follow the Giants, but I think they might be over the cap, and while they're expected to part ways with some bigger names, it doesn't seem likely that they would be inclined to make a move for Revis. It just seems to me that it doesn't really fit their defensive philosophy on the field (build lines out, have Prince Amukamara) or from a larger team strategy perspective which has been further validated with 2 championships.

Really, this is actually a good idea. You're going into a rebuilding phase. The talent and cap issues dictates that. So you keep a coach on a short leash to blame when a bad year hits, get future value for current performers with high cap numbers, and give your new GM a chance to make a solid mark on the organization the following year - with a new coach and a lot of second year and rookie players.

As silly as it sounds now, this may be the best choice for the Jets in the long run.

Considering the Jets have already signed up that offensive genius Marty Mornhinweg, it looks like the Jets have signed onto the Philadelphia Eagles plan for success in the NFL.

Redskins Fans: Would you trade Cromartie for D. Hall, straight-up? How about Cromartie for J. Wilson?

/I'd say definitely to Wilson, and strong maybe on D. Hall...but I'm a VT fan and tend to dislike trading players that have been on the Skin's for a few years since they are familier with the system already, plus...loyalty.

No Cromartie? But who will be there to dive away from open field runners?

He's 27, and how exactly is he crazy?

I'm not sure how old an elite cornerback can be before he's too old for the position, but I'm going to estimate 34, based on Champ Bailey in the playoffs. You can buy some extra years on your career by moving to safety, too, like Charles Woodson and now Ronde Barber.

WTF good is a awesome CB when even if he makes a game changing play (INT) all he is doing is giving the ball back to a useless offense with no running game and no passing game which will 3 and out at best.

When the Deion Sanders was wreaking havoc for the 49ers and then the Cowpokes, he would be handing the ball off to an offense that was highly capable with Steve young or Troy Aikman at the helm.... Without that, a high caliber CB is about as useful as pearls on a swine. And by the time the Jets straighten out the offense both Cromartie and Revis will be heading for rocking chairs.

They haven't had a secondary for years, and it's not like it stopped them from being a good team. Now as for winning SBs, no, hasn't helped.

It's amazing that they had a great secondary during all the time that Belichick was "becoming" a "genius." Ever since they decided secondary wasn't a priority, their defense has suffered and, lo and behold, people still want to call Belichick a "genius."

The Jets are going to tank next season, save some money and have cap space for 2014. They can't win with the quarterback situation as it is and they can't get rid of Sanchez without screwing up their cap.

It will be interesting if hey take a QB in the first two rounds of the draft or hope to Luck their way into a rookie starter in 2014. Expect Rex to go at the end of a disappointing season and a complete reboot. It will probably end up in a bigger disaster than that.

Even in a bad year they can take 4 wins from Miami and Buffalo so we might have the same sort of playoff hopes as this season depending on the schedule.


In conclusion bet as much money as you can on the Patriots winning the AFC East next season.
