    Omar is the ******* who enabled Miko Grimes to rip into Tannehill and the Fins; His sophomoric writing abilities, ignorant and often incendiary unfounded opinions (as it seems he has very few pipelines into the team) reflect an unqualified reporter whose existence gets justified by "clicks."

    Sure: using that "Broken Clock" theorem, every now and then he pukes out something useful. But not enough to justify enabling him. Therefore it's important to know who wrote the article before linking to it.

    I look at it this way, he wants revenge on the two teams in our division who have doubts about him, and Miami is the up and coming team in that division.

    And if that is the case, and he's cheap, I'd bring him in for a visit.

    Revis has a new agent named Hiller, whose latest update shows that Darrelle's weight loss is now up to 17 lbs from last season. I may be wrong, but that seems pretty impressive and may be the result of some pretty serious training to address a problem.
    Darrelle has been a standout NFL star from the moment he was drafted. He performed on the field and he got paid by the Jets, Bucs, Patriots and Jets again. In fact he wrote the book on how great players should negotiate to maximize their earnings. Mike Tannenbaum probably still bears the scars from some of those brutal early negotiations. But now the boot is on the other foot and Revis is looking for a team that will give him an opportunity. The fact that other teams have not been banging his door down may indicate that Revis still expects to be well paid on top of the $6M he will get from the Jets, but the NFL teams are concerned by his noticeable decline in performance last season.
    I'm curious if Revis still has something to offer and would be open to giving him a workout. not too many years ago, he was one of the best DBs that the NFL has ever seen. Even if he is now slower, he still may have the instincts and leadership to help develop players like Xavien Howard, Tony Lippert and Tankersley.

    Yes, Revis is old. That said, I'd sign him in a second if this were accurate. Especially at the min, nothing to lose. A veteran presence to help mentor Lippet, Howard, Tankersly, and can provide depth and play in certain spots.

    I'm still confused with Caroo and how his role plays out. I'm guessing they made the move up last year because they had no plans to resign Stills and Parkers future still being up in the air. Fast forward, Stills is locked up and if Parker stays healthy he'll be as well. Could he be a possible trade piece if he performs? Assuming Parker does, you're not moving him, Stills, or Landry.

    Remember all the ex player cameos ala Wes Welker and Peyton Manning. I think it amounts to that for Revis and Miami. Let him drop some pointers...

    That said and we kick the tires; and he's pulled himself together. Why not sign him to an incentive based contract?

    We could see how he fares at slot CB.

    I love our backup receiver options. If our receivers are being held and bullied, bring in Caroo and let him get physical. If our receivers can't separate, bring in Grant and let him chip away at the opponents confidence. Both guys are on cheap contracts.

    If we didn't have to pay revis that amount, I would be interested at least as a michael thomas type replacement as s/slot cb...but that combined with the shape he may be in... I just can't get behind it

    But, I think if he weren't slowed by injuries/age/out of shape, he could transition to a fine fs, like charles woodson did

    Oh yeah, I'm with you bro. I was just talking about Caroo long term with the team.

    Have to pay him what amount? The Jets are paying him to sit at home. The only thing anybody else has to pay is the league minimum. And if he has offset language he should play for the minimum just to **** the Jets over as much as possible.

    I don't remember the exacts of it, but I remember something sketchy about the situation... he's owed that from the Jets so if a new team were to pay him this year it would have to be at least "x" amount for him to get his jet money.

    or something like that

    The only thing I can find in regards to not getting the $6 mill would have been if the league disciplined him for the felony charges, but once they cut him even that was out the window and the $6 mill is firmly in his pocket.

    I have hard time believing Revis would totally commit himself to a position change...but if he did...it would worth investigating.

    Could've been that... I thought it was something to do with like- if he were to sign with a new team for less than that amount, he gives up the jet money or something of that sort. I know, i know, great details

    I'm confused, everything I find on Revis says he weighs 198lbs. So if he lost 17lbs, is he now 181lbs? If so that is extremely light for a CB.

    OR....was he 215lbs last year, and then lost the 17lbs which puts him now at 198lbs?

    He was up to 215 lbs last year. Take a look at any of the games, he was obviously overweight and was easily beaten by a number of faster players.
