”The San Francisco 49ers have a need at cornerback and mountain of draft picks.
According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the Niners are among a ”handful of teams” that have discussed pursuing Revis, according to two sources. Cole adds that the Niners will make a play even if Revis — a free-agent-to-be in 2014 — becomes a one-year rental.
Adding a healthy Revis to the San Francisco defense is enough to makePete Carroll and the rest of the coaches in the NFC queasy. It would also be a boon to the burgeoningRevis-Richard Sherman rivalry.
The 49ers are well stocked to make the Jets a competitive offer. They already have 11 selections in April’s draft and are expected to get the 34th overall pick when they complete their trade with theKansas City Chiefs for Alex Smith. Three more compensatory picks will follow.
The Niners’ biggest issue to making a Revis a long-term solution in their secondary is salary cap space. As a short-term rental, he’s a financial steal because of his $6 million salary (after bonuses).
The Jets have only one chance to get this right. The Niners are an intriguing partner, but New York will keep its options open.”
