Browns Still In Pursuit of Darrelle Revis Per Report


 

 

According to a report from Pro Football Talk the Cleveland Browns are still in pursuit of Darrelle Revis and one of their prime competitors are out of the race:

For the Browns Revis would be a huge upgrade for the team pairing him with Joe Haden to have the best tandem in football. Revis would be a couple years removed from his knee surgery and back to playing at the highest level.

Revis’ contract is a concern but:

With very simple restructuring the Browns get a cap relief and Revis gets his money. No stress no bother. Tampa Bay isn’t in a great hurry to make a deal, but tomorrow will be the drop dead date:

Could the Browns pull another one out. Can they keep Haden happy in an extension with Revis’ huge contract on the team as well? Could they still put together the backend of the defense, especially free safety? How much in draft considerations would it be worth?

    I’d like to see a deal get made and bring Revis to Cleveland. Offer them a 5th rd pick to start out, I hope they don’t get into a bidding war with another team and give up a lot of picks. If he hits the FA market in don’t think the Browns we be able to sign him. After today’s signings the Browns still have another $40 mil in cap space they got to spend. Why not bring in a player who’s only 28, and showed last year that the injury is behind him. He’s still one of the premier CB’s in the league, and a player who teams have to game plan around. After this year the Browns could then look to restructure his contract giving him guaranteed money, and lower his cap space hit. The only downside to bringing him to Cleveland is after this year Haden is up for a new contract, and he’s going to need to be payed top CB money as well. So he’ll want a contract along the lines of what they’re going to give Revis. But with the way the cap is supposed to rise over the next few years and the fact that the Brown’s don’t have QB who is getting $20 mil a year. Why not spend $20 mil to lock up 2 of the best CB’s in the game for the next 4-5 years. Draft a QB this year who you want to develop into your franchise QB, using the rookie wage scale for QB to your advantage like SF and Seattle.
