Report: Darrelle Revis Most Likely Headed To Buccaneers

Posted on Mar 12 2013 - 8:19pm by thacover2

The details are premature at this point, but unless the deal falls through, Darrelle Revis is most likely headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers according to Jeff McClane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Pro Football Talk is also reporting that it will be Tampa Bay according to sources.  Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum believes a trade for Revis should bring the Jets similar compensation that Minnesota got for Harvin.

The Challenge now is to get a deal done that works for both teams.  Will the Jets get a deal on par to what Minnesota got for Percy Harvin, probably not, but the Jets need to decide if chasing a 1st round pick is worth missing out on dealing Revis.

There are several factors that are involved in said scenario, and something will eventually have to give.

    Are you suggesting we give Revis away for a second round draft pick? He is the best defensive player in football regardless of the knee injury. The rehab for knee surgeries are better than ever, just look at AP. This is Revis’s first injury ever and AP has had multiple knee injuries. It would be stupid to give away Revis in his prime for anything less than market value and it should be better than Harvin.

      not at all Gustavo. Revis is the truth. I’m suggesting that No one has to give the Jets a #1st round pick. If they choose not to, the Jets are stuck with Revis. If they don’t trade Revis, he will walk next season for nothing. I’m just saying that If all they can get is a 2nd round pick and maybe a 1st in 2014, they should take it.
