Revis as a niner (pure speculation)


Maybe this is an over-reach, i.e., more than we need. I know Andrew Davidson is happy with our secondary and probably I should be too. But I can't help feeling that man coverage skills enable blitz packages, and with Lawson, Brooks, LaBoy and Haralson on the outside, along with Willis and Spikes (and his neck) on the inside, we have a lot of potent blitz potential that i would like to see enabled. (Not to mention J. Smith and McDonald or RJF on the DL inside on passing downs.) Additionally there are, of course, safety blitz possibilities, etc. The bottome line is: when we bring 5 or 6 from unexpected places, that is hard to stop.

The keys to doing that and not getting burned, I believe, are sound schemes (we have that with Manusky!) and some man coverage ability (enough to hold for a few seconds).

So I will get to the point and my question, which is possibly irrelevant and impossible. What would you think of paying Revis 15.2 M per year* (say, 9 M guaranteed) for one or 3 years or so in the niner backfield?  Would that upset team chemistry? Is it even necessary? Are there better options? Should we stand pat?

(* Is that an irrational salary, i.e., did the Raiders pay Nnamdi too much??)
