Yahoo Sports’ Jason Cole has been told by sources that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have been actively involved in the Darrelle Revis discussion for quite some time now, may be growing “impatient” with the New York Jets to make a move.
Not only is Tampa reportedly willing to give up a first-, third- and sixth-round pick for Revis, Cole also states the team would be willing to pay upwards of $15-16 million annually for the talented 27-year-old defensive back.
Rich Cimini reports that any team trading for Revis will be responsible for the $1 million roster bonus he was paid last month.
The Jets are apparently open to trading Revis and his large salary, according to team owner Woody Johnson. Dating back nearly a month, it appears that the Buccaneers have been the only club sincere about bringing in the six year NFL veteran.
Should the Buccaneers and Jets fail to come to terms, there is always a chance Revis could sign with a team via free agency. That option may be the more likely possibility, as Revis can opt out of his current deal at the end of this upcoming season. Should he elect to do so, the Jets will be unable to franchise tag him.
Trade talks are expected to pickup in the days leading up to the NFL Draft, so we’ll have to see if the Buccaneers remain the only serious option for him.
