    If Peanut goes away would a healthy and cap friendly Revis help?

    How do you figure "cap friendly"?

    One thing to consider is there's only so much money to go around. If Tillman waits his value might go down. Tampa might have had an offer to him and if he rejected it in the mean time they sign Verner and his deal is gone. It's why so many deals get done on day one, you got to grab the deal whilst it's there.

    What's his price range and can both Peanut's contract and the extra 5% cap bump along with whatever other savings along the way with incentives interspersed in contract.

    Plus some Stein magic lol.

    Yeah but his foundation and family are here.

    I think he might consider less to be where he's set up camp.

    I would say he is more connected business wise than Ditka.

    Revis was set to make 18M, not sure what he is willing to settle for

    I believe that many of the FA's out there think they are worth more than reality dictates. Hester in particular will have a very hard time playing for big $.
    Teams aren't jumping at aging veterans with health issues and / or declining production. Just sayin'.
