Browns Hunting Revis DealMarch 11th, 2014
With the fourth pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select …
Would trading Darrelle Revis to the Browns to move up from No. 7 to No. 4 in the draft be enough to score the Bucs a talent-laden quarterback?
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, proud employee of the NFL, is reporting the Cleveland Browns and their massive salary cap room are hot in the pants for Darrelle Revis.
What the Browns might offer the Bucs has not been speculated, but a neat and tidy offer from the Browns would be to swap first-round draft picks. They give the Bucs their No. 4 slot, and the Bucs hand over the No. 7 pick and Revis.
That trade would still bring a little vomit to Joe’s palate. The Bucs would not be a better team without Revis, However, the Bucs would have a brighter future without Revis if Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Football fell to them at No. 4. The No. 4 pick might be good enough.
Joe hears all the talk about potential trade partners like the Browns expecting Revis to restructure his contract. Joe can’t figure exactly why Revis would do such a thing. Worst case for Revis, he becomes a free agent and he picks from the several teams that will throw $40 million guaranteed at him. Right now, Revis has ZERO guaranteed income.
