The drama between the Buccaneers and Jets over Darrelle Revis has hit yet another wall.
On Sunday, the Jets said they will be forcing Revis to attend spring workouts if he wants to receive his $3 million roster bonus.
Many analysts believed the only thing preventing the Jets from dealing Revis to the Buccaneers was Tampa Bay’s unwillingness to give up a first-round pick in this year’s draft. Now, the Bucs want Revis and now say they are willing to give up a first-rounder for the Jets cornerback. Done deal right?
Not quite. Pro Football Talk reports that the Jets want more then that for their All-Pro guy. They want “a lot more” than just the 13th overall pick from the Bucs. What exactly New York wants is still uncertain.
The Buccaneers added former 49ers safety Dashon Golston on March 14, but they’re going to need a lot more help in the secondary to improve a pass defense that ranked last in the NFL last season.
