Re: Free Agency
Revis got his charges dropped and has interest in the Steelers. This intrigues me at face value but I don't know all the particulars. Would he be an upgrade at this point?
Would he be an upgrade? Over cockrill I'd say so wouldn't you? Revis had a poor year last season and one would think he is eager for a bounce back season. The question is does he have enough left in the tank? If the money was right I wouldn't be against a two year deal as we could use an experienced vet in the secondary to help nurture the young guys but I'm not sure he's a guy the steelers would typically touch.
Cockrell is six years younger but that's it. In the grand scheme of things, I think the Steelers should buy now because Ben only has a few years left. Revis is 31 but if, like you say, he has some motivation and the price is right, I say, go for it.
