Bucs are the likely Revis destination, if Jets move quickly
s the new league year approaches, the Jets have, for now, one serious trade partner for cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it’s the Buccaneers.
The challenge becomes doing a deal that works for everyone involved — the teams and the player.Some, including former Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum, believe that Revis should bring in the same haul that the Vikings got for receiver Percy Harvin. But there are major differences between the deals.
Per Mehta, owner Woody Johnson has no intention of signing Revis to a long-term extension. Thus, the options are to trade him or to see him walk away next year to a team like the Patriots, Giants, Dolphins, or Bills.
With the situation becoming a larger distraction on a daily basis, the sooner the move happens, the better.
It could happen as soon as today. As we reported last night, there’s one “good” offer on the table. That offer could go away if the team making it signs another cornerback once the market opens.
