The Case for Darrelle Revis (in hypothetics)

Not saying that the 49ers should do this, but it’s just a thought. First and foremost, I want to resign Donte Whitner, but unfortunately we all know how the NFL works. Hypothetically speaking, if the Bucs release Darrelle Revis, we could/should go after him. We currently have $15-$16 million dollars in cap and Revis should take up anywhere from $10-$13 million (hopefully). This will give us enough money to resign Dawson and maybe leave a little room after that. Hearing speculation on a LMJ trade and a Iupati trade would most likely give us more draft picks, but I would like to keep both of them.

Now, looking onto the draft, we could package some picks and move up and pick a safety (Pryor or Clinton Dix). If not, we could sit and draft a Jimmie Ward or a Deone Buccanon. All are good safety’s with good value. We would still be able to pick a WR and Corner in the earlier parts of the draft as well. Ideally, we probably wouldn’t want a rookie Strong Safety starting if we’re trying to win the super bowl, but Eric Reid was a rookie and pro bowler last season. Even with a rookie Strong Safety; Revis will be a year off the ACL, so nothing will hold him back, I would expect him to take back his undisputed best DB crown. With Revis back to his old self, he would cut off half of the field so the safeties would have less to worry about anyways. With big time extensions coming up for next season, and drafting CB’s in the draft, we could play the year (win the SB), release Revis and have younger CBs (from draft) molded and ready for the 2016 season.

A lot of this is hypothetically speaking, but I think this would be a viable option for the team. Again, I want to RESIGN WHITNER, but you never know with the NFL.
