So, do this rumor actually have legs to it?
I wouldn't be surprised if there were some legs. Never posted it since it was 3rd hand info that could easily change with a new DC, but a good friend of mine is friends with someone with the organization that got the ax right after Spags did. After he got let go, he told my friend that Revis and Reed were the two players they were planning to target. I was skeptical since it was about a week before word of Revis's availability came out, but maybe the teams were told about it before the media broke it. I still don't quite believe it all, but my friend isn't the type to bull shite me about that kind of thing, though.
Personally, I don't think that there's any way we could afford it cap wise. I do think that a lot of people are overestimating the type of picks/players it will take to acquire Revis, though. He's coming off the injury, will require a massive contract, and also has a no franchise clause in his contract (which I didn't previously think was possible).
