Using the soon to be trending hashtag on Twitter of “#RevisOrBust” from 98.7 The Fan’s Justin Pawlowski, it seems that is what’s going on when it comes to the Bucs and Darrelle Revis. After the 2012 season ended, Mark Cook of the Pewter Report wrote that the Buccaneers are not crazy about this offseason’s crop of corners. So far, that has been exactly the case. Fans are also screaming out to the Bucs asking why they haven’t been spenders this free agency. Aside from the Dashon Goldson signing, the Bucs have done little to bring in anyone else to sign. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone if you would have read my article on the Bucs’ salary cap and what it means for this offseason. (Which was not to expect much from them.) With all that said, the team is banking on the draft as well as their own guys. The potential extension of Mike Williams, Josh Freeman, and Gerald McCoy still exists. Granted they don’t have to be signed to where it will affect this offseason’s salary cap, but they are the primary reasons why the Bucs haven’t tackled this offseason like they did last year’s. And don’t forget about the rookie contracts you have to leave room for. This leads us to Darrelle Revis. There is no question the Bucs want him on their sidelines. The question is and has been when will the trade happen. Having both Goldson and Revis in one offseason will be successful for Tampa Bay. However, if it does not happen, it can cause a major uproar like the one that may already be brewing all over sports talk radio and on social media. Many say the Bucs have no help in the secondary. Honestly, they do. Perhaps they are not names that will be on the back of jerseys for sale and fly off the racks anytime soon but the potential is there. Leonard Johnson, Anthony Gaitor, and Danny Gorrer have all been criticized countless times and rightfully so. At the same time, was it all there fault for the Buccaneers woes and struggles in 2012? No. Darrelle Revis is undoubtedly the biggest name Tampa Bay can acquire. Revis will make an immediate impact to their secondary and there is no way you can argue against that, whether he is coming off an injury or not. This offseason may be Revis or bust for the Buccaneers, but it won’t be the end of the world if he is not in pewter and red next season.   The post It’s Darrelle Revis or bust for the Buccaneers appeared first on The Bay Cave.
