Is Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman Preparing to Trade for Darrelle Revis?
So while this year's free-agent class is pretty weak for top talent, there's one pretty intriguing option, a veteran superstar who is expected to be on the trade block.
According to Eagles' beat writer Jeff McLane, there's a rumor in NFL circles that general manager Howie Roseman is "crunching the numbers and putting together an offer to bring the 27-year-old Revis to Philadelphia."
There's no denying that Revis is a high-risk, high-reward player. He'll be 28 in July and he's just six months off from a torn ACL. He's also had a history of contract holdouts.
Oh, and the Eagles did this exact same dance two summers ago, signing veteran Nnamdi Asomugha to a massive $60 million deal before watching him turn into a below-average cornerback.
Personally, I'd go all-in for Revis. I have confidence that he has several more dominant seasons left and remains a step above every other cornerback in the league. You could argue that Revis is the best defensive player in the NFL not named Von Miller or JJ Watt, considering the pass-happy era the NFL is currently in.
It's only speculation, but the Eagles would likely have to give up their second-round draft pick and probably another mid-round pick to acquire Revis. To me, he's worth it.
