    Just imagine a secondary that pairs Revis with Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes, and features Starks, Cameron Wake, Olivier Vernon and Dion Jordan hunting opposing quarterbacks.
    That’s a better visual for the Dolphins than having to line up against Revis twice a year if he ends up with the New England Patriots or New York Jets, two AFC East rivals who haven’t made a free agent move YET.
    Even if the Dolphins can’t land Revis it would be a wise approach to raise the price on its division rivals, possibly forcing both franchises to exit the bidding process, or stress their budget if they do land him.
    New Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey needs to put a six-year, $68 million offer on the table that guarantees Revis $33 million, and cross his fingers that if Revis does pick an AFC East team it will be the one in South Florida.

    I would love that to happen but the only offer he wouldn't be able to refuse is 12+ mill a year and I don't think we would do that... anything less then 12 I think he would choose a contender over us.

    We don't even have any starting caliber guards or a right tackle. Revis ain't happening.

    I would love it, but realistically, we have too many holes to fill, so spending so much on him wouldn't help us much.

    Revis needs to sign somewhere to end these threads.

    Revis would only work at the right price. Would definitely solidify the defensive backfield

    Hell, I hope he signs with the Pats for 12-13+ Million a year...

    In 2 years, that team is going to be in shambles.

    Agreed. Signing Revis would take our defense over the top.

    I would sign him and draft Skov to make one of the best defenses in the league.

    We have the money to do that and still sign a couple more cornfeds and a RB.

    We can draft the rest of our needs as most of them would be depth purposes.

    New England Patriots will sign Him because they know what it takes to win championships. We are the dolphins we're just mediocre

    The press, especially NFL Network, is doing everything they can to put Revis in NE.

    yea because he's found so much success on every time he's been on....stop with the soap opera man

    honestly don't see him ending up in NE, but it's getting hard to ignore all these parrots on ESPN and NFLN

    CB Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots have reached agreement on a one-year, $12 million deal, league sources told ESPN.

    So we are still stuck w/ Revis. I'm surprised Rex couldn't pull that off.

    I'd love to pair him up with Grimes what a backfield that would be two shutdown corners. Imagine the blitz packages we could do with those 2 in the backfield and Wake and Jordan up front. Yikes! BUT I don't see us going for him because of the money we need to put into other areas/needs.

    I really don't care about this. Yes he's a great cornerback, but us beating the Patriots isn't going to come down to our passing game vs. Revis.

    Well i guess we get to hear for the next 6 months how they are going to hear about Revis all the damn time. He has been beaten before and will be again it is not a big deal they have other problems to deal with.

    Yes, 1 year, $12 million, still won't beat the Broncos.

    If we could have signed Revis for 12 million, we'd still be 15th I the league in cap space, with about 19 million left, and had a terrifying pass defense. New England got a good deal.

    Not paying QB money to a CB.
