Jets Pass On Bucs’ Offer For Darrelle RevisMarch 12th, 2013
Joe thought he would give his readers an update.
First, 49ers safety Dashon Goldson is being whisked to One Buc Palace by private jet courtesy of Team Glazer, tomorrow. Joe only hopes his hostess for the day is a scantily-clad Rachel Watson.
Also, the agent for Goldson, who is also Dixie Chicks cornerback Brent Grimes’ agent, has denied Grimes signed a contract with the Dixie Chicks and is still available to play elsewhere in 2013.
Now with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, the great Mike Florio, reports that indeed the Jets had (have?) an offer on the table for Revis. Terms of the deal are unknown. What is known, per Florio, is that the Jets turned their nose up on the offer.
To add intrigue, the Jets have yet to discuss a new pact with Revis or his people.
Joe thinks this is critical. Joe cannot imagine Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik trying to make a serious play for Revis, and not having him locked up before consummating the trade.
If Dominik, or any general manager, acquires Revis without a new contract, Joe’s pretty sure that will end in a one-year player rental and Revis bolts.
If the Bucs were just one cornerback from a Super Bowl push, Joe wouldn’t be too worried about renting Revis.
The Bucs, however, are clearly more than one player away from playing in February.
UPDATE: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network stated late Tuesday night that Goldson is expected in Tampa Bay tonight and, “would be surprised if he leaves without a contract.”
