I'm 100 percent in agreement. When does it ever hurt to investigate. Why wouldn't they? If you are not trying to get better?
Another one for me is the CFL. The Steelers need to comb that league a little more closely. There is a batch of guys that come out of college. A very few make it to the NFL or are in and out of it. Most go onto a regular life. But you have 9 teams here of 50 some players going into their 30s. Some guys peak early. If you mined one prospect for camp and every two or three years got a roster player. It's basically a free draft pick.
1 year 4 million incentive include 50 K every pass broken up 250 KL for every intc.

Pay him Vet minimum and let the Jets pay the rest!
Darrelle Revis’ legal issues are in the past thanks to a Pittsburgh court’s ruling this week, and the veteran cornerback’s entire focus now lies in finding a new team to play for in 2017.
He could be a more attractive prospect than originally believed, as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport noted on Thursday, reporting that Revis could come relatively cheaply.
“Unless a team pays Darrelle Revis more than $6M, he’ll play for the minimum,” Rapoport tweeted. “Why? [The] Jets owe him $6M with offsets. They cover costs up to $6M.”
The Jets released Revis late last month, with a $6 million guarantee remaining on the massive contract they gave him two offseasons ago. Thanks to that guarantee, Revis could theoretically sign with a team for the veteran’s minimum this coming season.
The NFL’s veteran minimum is around $1 million this season for a player with 10 years experience, a jump from $985,000 in 2016, and is expected to rise again in 2018.
Revis’ previous contract stipulates that the Jets will receive a credit for any money that he should make elsewhere this season: So, for example, if Revis signed with a team for $1 million in base salary, the Jets would owe Revis $5 million, not $6 million.
Should Revis score more than $6 million somewhere, the Jets owe him nothing.
Will there be a team willing to take a chance on him?
What are we waiting for....Ink him to a 1 year 6.5 million....
Matter of fact, I'm officially signing off on it....
We have the Biggest Three in the NFL........The Killer Bees................................
Ravens making the moves we should be making
Ravens sign Brandon Carr to four-year deal
Ravens signed CB Brandon Carr, formerly of the Cowboys to a four-year contract.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's actually a one-year deal with a "series of options." Schefter said it's most realistically called a two-year, $12 million contract. ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer opined in early February that keeping Carr should be a "priority" for the Cowboys, but there had been few updates on his status since. He was allowed to hit the open market with little fanfare.
Carr never quite lived up to his monster, five-year contract in Dallas, but was a solid starter. He helps stabilize a secondary that's been uneven in recent years.
Revis can reject offers for less than $6 million, without consequence
Revis has some protection against lack of interest; his contract with the Jets pays him $6 million fully guaranteed for 2017. The Jets have protection against his protection. The $6 million payment contains offset language, creating a dollar-for-dollar credit based on anything Revis earns elsewhere.
But what if Revis is offered only $4 million? Can he choose to do nothing and take $6 million from the Jets in lieu of taking the offer — and helping the Jets save $4 million?
Per a source with knowledge of the Revis contract with the Jets, it contains no language requiring him to accept other work. This means that he can choose to reject any offer that he receives, and that the Jets can’t try to reduce their obligation to him if he opts not to take whatever he can get.
For Revis, then, the question becomes whether he’d play for less than what he’d get for not playing, whether he’d play for the same as what he’d get for not playing, and possibly whether he’d choose to take $6 million not to play versus, say, $8 million to play.
Ultimately, the Jets are on the hook for $6 million unless he signs a new contract.

"Not happening, folks"
Yeah because, ya know, bringing a guy into a camp who could potentially upgrade a position of need, who wants to play for you, with another team picking up the tab? Sounds too risky and aggressive and costly for the "Steeler Way" Jesus fucking Christ if we just dismiss this without even trying? Why?! What do we have to lose? I fucking hate these people sometimes
We shall see what happens. He would need to take a hometown discount. Would be cool to have Revis but his best days are well behind him, and so are the receivers.
I was all for this the last few times he was a free agent. He wanted nothing to do with us. Let someone else sign him they can get older, I think smart fans can agree we need to get younger.

He's gonna be a Steeler next week. Based on MTC intuition. I could be wrong so don't take me seriously atm
