Falcons Unlikely To Pursue A Trade CB Darrelle Revis

Update:

Bob Glauber reports that a source “familiar with Falcons’ situation” has informed him that the Falcons will not be involved in a trade CB Darrelle Revis.

“Absolutely not,” said Glauber’s source.

The Falcons could use another cornerback after they parted ways with Dunta Robinson last week, but it remains doubtful that they’ll pursue a trade for Revis.

Update:

Jeff Legwold tweets that the Broncos have “NO intention of acquiring Revis.”

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports that a source has informed him that the Denver Broncos have expressed in Jets CB Darrelle Revis.

Cimini adds that the Revis camp is “pushing for a resolution ASAP” because of concerns that the market for cornerbacks could dry up quickly.

There are so many solid options at cornerback this year that waiting until free agency is underway to start shopping him could have a negative impact on their compensation for Revis. Revis has a $1 million roster bonus due next Saturday, so that could also work as some motivation to get a trade done in the near future.

  • Cimini adds that the Buccaneers could be a “dark horse” to watch given that they have over $30 million in available cap space to work with.
  • Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that there’s a rumors circulating around the league that Eagles GM Howie Roseman has been “crunching the numbers and putting together an offer” to acquire Revis.

Philadelphia is expected to be one of the most active teams involved in the cornerback market. Numerous reports have indicated that Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are almost certain to be playing elsewhere next season, which leaves them in need of two starting corners.

They have plenty of cap space to make a Revis trade work, but it could come down to trade compensation. McLane mentions that the Eagles could start with their second-round draft pick (No. 35 overall).

The 49ers have been the most likely destination, but fitting Revis into their salary cap could create some issues as well, so they’re by no means a sure thing.
