If The Bucs Are Going To Trade Darrelle Revis, It Would Likely Happen Soon

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported a few weeks ago that “several teams” have reached out to the Buccaneers regarding the availability of CB Darrelle Revis.

Since then, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk mentioned that speculation around the league has the Patriots and Broncos as potential options for Revis.

Florio now writes that if a Revis trade is going to happen, “it needs to happen fairly soon,” as the Buccaneers will owe Revis a $15 million roster bonus as of March 13.

If Revis is still on their roster at that point, Tampa Bay will be required to send the Jets their third-round pick as part of the previous trade agreement.

According to Florio, the decision really boils down to whether or not Revis is worth $16 million in cash, their third-round pick, and whatever compensation they could get in return for him in a trade.

All indications from the Buccaneers are that Revis will be back next season, so it would be surprising to see him get dealt in the next week or so.

Revis, 28, totaled 50 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and two forced fumbles over the the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Revis rated as the No. 1 cornerback in the league last season.

We’ll have more regarding Revis and a potential trade as the news is available.
