According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, it’s “inevitable” that CB Darrelle Revis ends up on the Buccaneers at some point this offseason.
King adds that Jets owner Woody Johnson is “categorically against” extending Revis’ contract beyond this season.
Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune expects to see talks between the Jets and Buccaneers regarding a trade for Revis “heat up again” once Tampa Bay has a better idea of who will be available to them at No. 13 overall.
Cummings mentions that the “most sensible thing” for the Buccaneers to do at this point is to stand firm regarding their offer for Revis in hope of convincing the Jets to accept a 2014 draft pick.
The Jets will obviously have to do better than the third-round compensatory pick they would receive for Revis if they were to keep him and allow him depart via free agency next year. That shouldn’t be hard at all given that the Bucs are reportedly willing to include either a 2013 second-round pick or a 2014 first-round in a deal for Revis.
Several reports have mentioned that trade talks are unlikely to pick up until the draft draws closer, but there’s certain to be plenty of speculation and notes in the coming days.
