Supposedly they received a “good trade” offer for Revis on Monday, and Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio has identified, with the help of an anonymous league source, the Bucs as the team.
Jets former general manager Mike Tannenbaum, thinks that Darrelle Revis should bring them the same return that the Minnesota Vikings got for Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks. The difference with this deal, as Florio points out, is that this isn’t within the same conference, and they’re both not playoff teams.
Because the Vikings face the Seahawks in the NFC, and potentially the playoffs they needed more in return for giving up Harvin. The other hold up is the question marks around Revis and his ACL rehab. No one knows what level he will return too.
Florio thinks he can assume what a trade package would include:
“At best, it’s a package headlined by a second-round pick this year or possibly a first-rounder in 2014. Under these circumstances, a 2013 first-round pick for Revis doesn’t make sense.”
The Jets though need to act quickly because if the Bucs fill the need at cornerback via free agency, they no longer need to trade for Revis.
The Revis derby isn’t limited to one team. Several have had trade talks, including the Eagles and Bucs, and NYJ highly motivated to move him
