Found March 20, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

The national media has weighed in on the Jets potential trade of Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers. While reports have said anything from it happening this week to not happening until this summer, none have labeled their cornerback situation better than NFL Network’s Charles Davis.  Appearing on 98.7 The Fan Wednesday morning with Justin “The Commish” Pawlowski, Davis was asked if the Bucs are doing the right thing with Revis and their cornerback situation. “I think that they are because it’s a deep draft for corners,” Davis told The Commish. “So i don’t think the Bucs are sitting there saying ‘I have to pull the trigger on someone that I’m not sold on because I have to have someone’.” Davis would continue on. “Despite all these reports on them (the Bucs) running out of patience and all that, let me just say this as bluntly as I can, no one runs out of patience when it comes to Darrelle Revis.” He would also add that if a deal can be made to acquire Revis, patience is the least of their worries. So why hasn’t the trade happened? Simply put, New York doesn’t like Tampa Bay’s offer. The good news is, negotiations may be moving along as head coach Greg Schiano described it as a “fluid” situation. And there is reason to believe that. A report from the New York Daily News says the Bucs and Revis would agree on a long-term deal worth $12-$13 million per year. Be mindful that the report claims that figure is according to “sources.” But boy does that match with what Schiano may be implying. No one is certain what Tampa Bay will do next. Or what may happen for that matter. However, for those who suggest they should at least sign Brent Grimes, Charles Davis also touched on that option.
