The greatest corner tandem in the NFL-on the Raiders??



So I'm watching the NFL Network, and they're doing their usual thing, saying how DHB had better be the most improved wideout (Raider Nation agrees with this but please mention how atrocious our ex QB was next time) this coming season. I'm half asleep, not really paying attention to who got signed and who got cut. Then I hear about D'Brickashaw Ferguson's contract and I think, good for him. And then they start talking about all the guys that the Jets need to sign, like Mangold and Revis and someone else.

Don't worry, I'm getting to it.

Apparently Darrelle Revis wants a new contract. He's one of the best corners in the league along with Awesome-One, and he's only making 500k next year. It's more than I'll ever make but peanuts compared to what Nnamdi's making. The word is that the Jets are afraid that Revis wants Nnamdi money and they won't even consider his deal when doing the contract for him. No one, they think, will match that type of deal.

Al Davis would.

Al would pay Revis big money to come be a Raider. Many people, myself included, have said Al wants that Hayes/Haynes corner combo. And here comes the golden opportunity to get two Pro-Bowl corners on the same team, wearing the Silver and Black. The Raiders would have an untouchable pass defense. But then the dilemma comes into play.

Who would we trade to get him?

This was discussed a few months ago, I'm aware of that. In light of the current situation with Revis being unhappy and our roster a little more settled with the draft a fading memory, I thought it best to bring it back up. And the conventional wisdom was that we were more likely to trade Nnamdi than the Jets were to trade Revis. Not many outside of here thought it was even possible. We will clearly have to give up some very key guys, but the potential exists for this to happen.

My version of the trade is below. Make your own if you'd like.

Jets get from the Raiders: Chris Johnson, Michael Huff, Richard Seymour, 2nd round pick in 2012

Raiders get: Darelle Revis, 2nd round pick in 2011
