I don't think I'd make him highest paid player. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but with a cap I'd rather balance what I was paying my corners and get 2-3 solid guys rather than one guy like Revis. If there was no cap Id give him anything to keep him. He's worth whatever he asks for since he's one of a very elite few the can do what he does.
This point is why I think he doesn't deserve the highest paid defensive player moniker. Teams these days have 3-5 good solid targets to pass the ball to. If you take out 1, there is still 2-4 guys who are highly capable of hurting your team.
Corners are a nice piece to the puzzle, but not a necessity.
