Darrelle Revis Is Being Connected To The Packers

The New York Jets dumped former All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis earlier this week. We all know who is in bad need of cornerbacks too, don’t we?

That’s right, the Green Bay Packers.

Naturally, some people are connecting those dots.

Peter King suggests the Packers (along with Steelers and Saints) as potential landing spots for Revis if the price is right. And here’s where I just have to wonder why the Packers are suddenly connected to every old guy who gets released? First Adrian Peterson, then Jamaal Charles and now Darrelle Revis.

At any rate, yes, the Packers have an obvious need at corner. So much so that we expect them to bring in multiple cornerbacks this offseason, one way or another. The Packers finished 31st against the pass in 2016 and their secondary was the obvious weak link of the team.

That said, Revis is coming off likely his worst season as a pro. He had just one interception, but never mind that. Revis finally started to look old and get beat… often. And that would make sense when you consider the guy will be 32 this summer.

Another complication for any team interested in Revis is that he’s been charged with four felonies related to a bar fight in Pittsburgh. Not exactly the type of player the Packers usually target. They specialize in pot smokers.

Throw that in the mix with declining skills and the rumors that Revis isn’t even really interested in football anymore and you’ve got quite a few issues that give pause.

That’s what the Packers’ cornerbacks group is already stocked with. Can Damarious Randall bounce back? Is Quinten Rollins even an NFL-caliber player? Can LaDarius Gunter ever evolve into a true No. 1?

Throwing in, “Will Revis return to form and does he even care?” doesn’t make a lot of sense to us.

But hey, it’s speculation season.

    Pssttt…Mordi….the talking heads, talk about this kind of shit, basically because, they have nothing intelligent to say. Then of course some goofball fucknut takes it and makes a story out of it.

    I know, it’s horrible, but it’s a lot like dumbshit false gossip, stupid people repeat other stupid people’s stupid gossip. Until it’s cyclical and it’s made the rounds. Until of course until the next time someone talks stupid etc.

    You and i are the kind of people that don’t have time for that shit, amirite?

    Ladarius Gunter can become a CB1 only if he plugs a rocket in his ass. No other way his speed can contest with the WR1s out there.

    Revis, no way. TT better not even look at him. He is not who he once was and he might be going to jail. We need to go a little younger and look at someone like Davon House or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, if they are released. Since TT only signs street FAs, we should look at Barwin, DRC, or House. Not to mention it could be TT’s final season as Packers GM before someone like Eliot Wolf takes over.

    Another thing, TT’s and MM’s contracts expires before 2018 and bottom line is that they doesn’t deserve a new contract after this one. They have been here for like what, 11 years. TT’s draft and develop may have worked before but it doesn’t work anymore. MM’s system may have been great before but lets be real, it doesn’t work that much anymore and Rodgers is the reason we went to the NFC title game last year, not them. If anything, let Wolf decide on Mike’s future once TT leaves.

    I fully expect to hear shit like “we’re doing our due diligence” but it will ultimately amount to nothing. Shields was out and we didn’t sign DRC, Peanut Tillman, or anyone else when there was a real, actual need. We won’t do anything now until after the draft. Then we’ll maybe pick up someone on the cheap.
