San Francisco 49ers Could Be the Front-runners to Acquire New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis
After reportedly agreeing to terms on a trade to send quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers are now sitting pretty with an NFL-high 15 selections in the 2013 NFL Draft this April.
The 49ers are said to have acquired the Chiefs’ high second-round draft pick in this upcoming draft, which gives the 49ers a staggering five of the first 93 picks of the draft, including picks 31, 34 and 61 overall.
I’m not the only New York Jets fan out there who heard about the Smith trade and immediately thought about the domino effect that could follow, especially when it pertains to embattled star cornerback Darrelle Revis.
The game of chicken between Revis and the Jets has gotten tiresome, to say the least, but there didn’t seem to be a resolution in sight until the 49ers cleared valuable cap space in the impending Smith trade.
Now, with the ammo the 49ers have, in the form of high draft picks and the willingness to make a bold move, they have to be considered the front-runners to reach a deal with the Jets to take Revis off their hands.
It’s not a particularly fun spot for the Jets to be in, as they’re forced to weigh the pros and cons of potentially trading the best player in franchise history, and one of the best players in all of football.
However, the headache of trying to please a player who can’t go three years between asking for a raise is enough for the Jets to seriously consider moving him with one year left on his contract.
If the 49ers want Revis, they have the assets to outbid everyone and give the Jets fair value for Revis.
After the way their secondary was torched in the postseason, they’d be crazy not to consider it.
Six players who can replace Junior Galette for the New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints had an unexpectedly exciting final weekend before training camp, parting ways with embattled 2013 and 2014 sack leader Junior Galette due to a series of off-field incidents. At any rate, the Saints have six candidates in place to pick up the slack and try to reproduce Galette’s tremendous pressure coming off the edge. They are a diverse group of highly-touted rookies, promising second-year athletes, and seasoned veterans in the twilight of their careers. Read More

Breaking down Dri Archer and his role(s) on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster
It's amazing how much changes in one year. Last training camp, writers like me were simply gushing over the possibilities Dri Archer's 4.26 speed could bring to the Steelers offense in 2014. The only caveat was his size (5'8”, 173 lbs). To compensate for Archer's lack of girth and muscle and to best utilize his speed, getting Archer out in space, away from those big, angry defenders looking to throw him around like a rag doll, would be key to him making an impact in his rookie season and beyond. Will he find a spot on the Steelers 53-man roster? Read More
