I believe they are looking for a QB in return.

I'm sure a 1st round pick in the middle of the round and a guy who is going to be UFA in a few weeks would sway the Jets.

Nice idea, but unlikely, Godric. It sounds like...with this one...you're on your own island...

Revis went to my high school. I've been best friends with his "cousin" since 9th grade and I have his high school jersey signed. Did I mention I also met him?

I would kill for him to be on my favorite team

Fine, give them Batch.

Seriously though, Wallace+1st rounder should get them talking.

Wallace has no value to them. They have no cap space, which is why they are thinking about trading Revis. Wallace is about to hit UFA status. They aren't going to be able to give him a long term deal and they don't have the space to franchise him. That's why the Jets likely want draft picks- they're cheaper and more cap-friendly.

Revis is going to be a UFA next year and likely won't sign a new contract before hitting free agency unless it's crazy money. He can't be franchised according to his contract. And he's coming off an ACL injury.

Troy doesn't work out. He meditates and battles his dandruff.

Let's of course not forget that the Steelers are pressed so far up against the cap we seem ready to let both Mike Wallace and James Harrison go.

I endore a full roster purge. I'd also endorse a full rebuild and unloading Roethlisberger. I'd just like the team more going forward and be more interested in seeing them win.

You had me until unloading Ben. As a person he may leave a lot to be desired but he is definitely one of the top 5/6 QB's in the league. Unless you are sure you can replace that you keep him and hope these injuries stop. Having a healthy Ben gives this team a chance to win every game.

If Ben plays more than 16 games in any given year again, i'll be shocked.
