Report: Buccaneers Releasing CB Darrelle Revis

 

Mike Garafolo reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are releasing CB Darrelle Revis.

  • Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that the Giants, Falcons, Eagles and Patriots are among the “many” teams that inquired about Revis, so they could be teams to keep an eye on.

The Buccaneers sent the No. 13 overall pick in eh 2013 draft to the Jets in return for Revis and later signed him to a six-year, $96 million contract that included zero guaranteed money.

Releasing Revis now prevent the Bucs from sending the Jets their third-round pick. Instead, Tampa Bay will have to part with their four-round selection to complete the trade.

As things stand right now, the Patriots could be the team to watch in regards to Revis. There was a lot of buzz about them last night after they lost Aqib Talib to the Broncos.

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.
