I am all over this suggesstion by Bill Williamson today on ESPN:
I could see a scenario where the Chiefs could use the No. 1 pick as bait and get Revis, who played for new Kansas City defensive coordinator Bob Sutton in New York, and the No. 9 pick in return. There may have to be some additions on either side, but I’m not sure the Jets could get a better offer.
The Chiefs could then pair Revis with Brandon Flowers and have one of the best cornerback situations in the NFL.
Yes, Revis is coming off a torn ACL. But all reports are that he is making great progress and he is in the prime of his career. And, yes, Revis would likely require a new deal, but I think he Chiefs could find a way to keep receiver Dwayne Bowe and add Revis. That would likely mean letting Albert walk in free agency.
But with the No. 9 pick, the Chiefs could likely get Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher and very likely get Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson. Both are highly skilled left tackles.
In addition, reports are heavy that the Chiefs are going after San Francisco quarterbackAlex Smith.
So, this is what the team’s offseason scorecard could look like:
In: Bowe, Alex Smith, Revis and a top rookie left tackle rookie.
Out: Albert and the No. 1 pick.
This is plausible and would make us instantly relevant again!
