PostSubject: Revis says joining Steelers would be 'a dream come true'   Wed Mar 15, 2017 7:23 pm

PITTSBURGH -- With the dismissal of all charges against him, Darrelle Revis assumes NFL teams began calling in search of his signature.

He hopes one of them is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"That would be a dream come true, I tell you, to play for the hometown team," Revis said. "It would be."

so now that his talent and career are on the downside , he wants to be a steeler ? he's had plenty of opportunities to cut a deal with pittsburgh , but always chased the dollar. where was his dream then ?
offer him a 1 year 2 million dollar deal and watch how quick his dream of playing for his home town team disappears.
personally , if i were the GM and i was interested in him it would be as a free safety ala rod woodsen.

1 year deal league min to coach up our CB's and play nickel from time to time. Other than that, Revis is washed up and a head case. Nice of him to allow his "friend" to drop a dime on himself to take the rap...pretty convenient.

I agree with this part. Had this conversation at work the other day about him. He's not the player he used to be but if you let him play FS and ball hog, then it would certainly give us a huge lift on defense.

Not sure of the contract you offer, but I wouldn't offer too much more than that. Maybe $5M for the one year.

I wouldn't want him as a safety. Not sure he would be better than what we have. Woodson was a guy who could translate his game into that position, but not sure Revis has that. Great man coverage doesn't always mean great Safety. I'm passing all around. Let him go get overpaid by another team.

If he wants to come in as a situational CB / S, play some ST, and get a vet. minimum, sure.

If not, then pass.

Yeah Revis isn't coming to the Burgh. He burnt his bridges with those legal issues and his play was already on the decline.

offer him a 1 year 2 million dollar deal (The Jets owe him 6mil. We could probably get him for league minimum 1mil. I think that would be worth the experiment) and watch how quick his dream of playing for his home town team disappears.
