With new Bucs coach Lovie Smith presumably bringing the Tampa Two back to the place where it was born, one of the first orders of offseason business could be to send last year’s top offseason acquisition packing.

Darrelle Revis, a man-to-man coverage specialist who reportedly didn’t like being used in zone coverage this past season, doesn’t fit the traditional duties of a cornerback in the Tampa Two. Given a contract that pays him $16 million per year with no guaranteed money or frills that would trigger a cap hit, the Bucs could walk away from Revis and save $16 million in both cash and cap space for 2014.
