He's going to want 5 maybe 6 years at a premium cost, I imagine minimum 16 per year.

He's not going to be an elite player at the end of the deal, and he's going to want to be paid ~16 million then. His reps aren't going to let him take dummy years where the team is going to end up just cutting him and he won't make that money. He's going to get paid.

Patriots FO will get a lot of heat, and we're worse off for two years but the end of those years of any mega deal Revis signs are going to be brutal franchise crippling cap numbers for a likely average player.
Let's look at Revis guaranteed money. His first 3 years 16 mill, 15 mill & 14 mill.you add the 5 mill to it . He would have counted 21 mill against the cap this year. That's way to big of a cap hit . I think Mayo , Amendola & other player would have been cut. Just to get us under the cap
