“No. No.” On Trading Darrelle RevisMarch 3rd, 2014
Joe guesses it is the offseason and fans are a combination of mocked drafted out and on edge waiting for the ringing of the free agency dinner bell. This afternoon, Twitter is alive with rumblings the Bucs are seeking a way to unload safety Dashon Goldson.
Joe will stop the Goldson nonsense with words that came straight from the mouth of Bucs coach Lovie Smith from the NFL Scouting Combine two weeks ago.
“And I know right now, Gerald McCoy, Lavonte David, Darrelle Revis, Dashon Goldson, there are a few guys in place right now so there [is] a great foundation in place.”
Those words are straight from Lovie, who doesn’t impress Joe as a bulls(p)itter. Which brings Joe back to Revis. Ever since Jason La Canfora claimed teams are contacting the Bucs to gauge interest in a trade for Revis, the rumors haven’t died down despite quotes from Lovie to the contrary.
Even fight-instigating, barista-training, pedestrian-bumping, olive oil-lapping, popcorn-munching, coffee-slurping, fried-chicken-eating, oatmeal-loving, circle-jerking, beer-chugging, cricket-watching, scone-loathing, college football-naïve,baseball box score-reading Peter King, of NBC Sports and Sports Illustrated fame, believes this stuff about the Bucs trading Revis is folly, so he Twittered yesterday.
@FearThaSpeer: Do you see the Bucs trading Revis? Would you?
@SI_PeterKing: No. No. Lovie knows he needs top CB, regardless of scheme.
So last week it was Revis was leaving. This week is seems people are trying to stir up Goldson is leaving.
So, when do the Gerald McCoy trade rumors start?
