07:56 AM ET 02.28 | What is a team to do when it's loaded with young talent and more draft picks than can crack the roster? Three words: Pursue Darrelle Revis. The 49ers are among a handful of teams that have discussed making a run at Revis this offseason, according to two sources. In fact, the 49ers are poised to make a run at Revis even if it's just for one season (although that could be problematic from Revis' standpoint). The bottom line is that if the New York Jets are serious about retooling their roster as quickly as possible, getting a fistful of picks from the 49ers could be a fine answer. And if history is any indicator, the 49ers will be more than willing.

They could afford to take that gamble

He'd be a good permanent replacement for the homophobe.

Mortgage their future for a year of Revis? If they do, it's a good thing that the money spent on Excedrin and Tylenol doesn't count against the cap.

They'll be taking Midol by mid-season.

They have probably the most talented roster, and a crapload of draft picks. Cornerback is probably one of their weakest spots. IF they think Revis can return to his former glory, it might be a good fit.

So, yes

Right now with 12 picks in this years draft including 2 in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, the 49ers are not mortgaging their future by making a deal for Revis. That being said, until he proves he is healthy, it would be a stupid move. Also, any Revis deal would require two things to happen, 1) make the Jets happy and b) sign Revis long term at something that makes him happy. With other big time players and a QB to pay in the next few years, I would not trade fro Revis. One question that I have not heard yet, if you sign Revis, who do you lose since Revis wants a ton of money?

They could use several of their 12 picks on CBs. With that many chances to find an good/great defensiveback one of the picks is bound to pay off and become a starter.

A shutdown corner is the only thing that prevented the Niners from winning the Super Bowl. If I'm them, I would be making a run at Revis too. If Revis is only 80% of what he was after that surgery, it's still 1994 in San Fran all over again.

If they had any goal line offensive plays worth diddly bop, this would not even be an issue.

You can't count on a pass interference call inside of 2 minutes to go during the Super Bowl. No ref wants to throw that flag. After storming down the field, the Niners did come up awfully disorganized and ineffective once they got to the goal line.

We've seen lots of teams who thought they just need that one special player to put them over the top. It never works out. The Vikings try it every for or five years.

Add in the two point conversion fiasco. that call was just as bad. If they had made that, then a FG ties it for them. It would have been 34-31 at that point.

That was an inexplicable set of plays called at that time in that place with that qb

They have picks to trade. Do they have cap space to make Revis the highest paid defender in the league? Nothing less will satisfy him.

February 28, 2013  12:28 PM ET

Well there are several things that the 49ers want their players to be;
1) Team first, not me first
2) Supportive of their teammates
3) Willing to sacrifice for the betterment of the team
4) Goal oriented aka "The Super Bowl"
5) They don't like locker room or media distractions.

So tell me if you think Darrell Revis fits the mold ?

February 28, 2013  05:41 PM ET

Stay away from Revis, the Niners have several chances of landing a couple of good players that play in the secondary.

Too many draft choices to make a stab at, instead of taking expensive secondhand cast offs....
