Trade value of Revis, Cromartie
By Tom Carpenter
ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini wrote Sunday that the New York Jets should be able to secure a pretty high price if they do indeed trade Darrelle Revis this offseason.
"I spoke to a personnel executive from another team and he said the Jets should be able to recoup at least a first-round pick for Revis," Cimini wrote, "Said the executive: 'I wouldn't be surprised if he merited a first-rounder and something else in the second year that was good, too.'
"Another executive said any deal probably would have to include a conditional pick in 2014, based on Revis' performance in 2013. That would protect both teams."
Cimini said he "wouldn't trade him unless I got a top-10 pick in return," and noted that the "Jets would get a third-round compensatory pick if Revis walks next year as a free agent."
What about another CB trade idea for the Jets?:
Rich CiminiSunday notes: Could Revis stay, Cro go?
"Instead of shopping Darrelle Revis, maybe the Jets should put fellow CB Antonio Cromartie on the trading block. Don't laugh, it's not such a far-fetched idea. There's a small segment of the organization that would rather trade Cromartie than Revis, according to a source. Let's think about this for a second: Cromartie's trade value never will be higher; he's coming off arguably his best year. A Cromartie trade would clear $8.2 million in cap room (only $2.5 million in dead money); a Revis trade would actually cost them cap room ($12 million in dead money, as opposed to his current cap charge of $9 million)."
