Sanity prevails. The 49ers are not pursuing Darrelle Revis, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
It would have been a bad idea for the Niners to trade for Revis. For one, Revis is coming off an ACL tear. Two, he’s a free agent after next season and wants a $16-million-per-year contract, which means he’s a “me” guy, not a team guy. Why put yourself in salary cap hell and put up with a guy like that, even for one year?
I still say the 49ers’ best move is to trade up in the first round of the draft and get a quality player who has a lifetime in front of him, like CB Dee Milliner, DT Sharrif Floyd, DT Sheldon Richardson, DE Ezekiel Ansah or DT Star Lotulelei if his heart checks out.
Don’t trade for injured goods.
