Re: Your thoughts on Revis?

In response to pcmIV's comment:
If Revis plays a full season at a shutdown level I think we'll keep him. The cap is set to increase a lot in the next few years, Hernandez's money is coming off the books (and maybe by then we'll get at least some credit for it) and the only FA that should command any real money is DMC. Given the deals that a few guys just signed I don't see Revis commanding anywhere near what was on his last deal given his age. I think BB makes it work if Revis plays like we all hope he will.
Last I heard the cap next year was only going up approx $5 million.
Also, I see some big increases coming next season in the Pats cap.
Mankins from $10.5 mill this year to $11 mill next year.
Mayo from $7,287,500 this year to $10,600,000 next year.
Wilfork from $6,683,333 this year to $8,433,333 next year.
Gronk from $5,400,000 this year to $8,650,000 next year.
Solder from $2,717,429 this year to $7,438,000 next year.
Edelman from $2,750,000 this year to $4,250,000 next year.
Arrington from $3,625,000 this year to 4,625, 000 next year.
Amendola from $4,575,000 this year to 5,700,000 next year.
Vollmer from $3,750,000 this year to $5,937,500 next year.
That's approx $20 mill increase from this year to next year, unless some of these contracts are reworked of course.
Am I missing something here?
