The San Francisco 49ers have a need at cornerback and mountain of draft picks.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported on Wednesday the 49ers are among a "handful of teams" that have discussed pursuing Revis, according to two sources. Cole adds that the 49ers will make a play even if Revis -- a free-agent-to-be in 2014 -- becomes a one-year rental. On Thursday, ESPN reported the opposite, that the 49ers are not pursuing Revis.
The 49ers are well stocked to make the Jets a competitive offer. They already have 11 selections in April's draft and are expected to get the 34th overall pick when they complete their trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for Alex Smith. Three more compensatory picks will follow.
The 49ers' biggest issue to making a Revis a long-term solution in their secondary is salary cap space. As a short-term rental, he's a financial steal because of his $6 million salary (after bonuses.)
