Revis To Be Released?

March 10th, 2014

darrelle revis 1102

Rumors have been flying the past 20 minutes or so and are now into a five alarm fire mode with the immediate future of Bucs all world cornerback Darrelle Revis. First it was the Bucs were uncomfortable with Revis’ contract, then it was the Bucs were pushing to trade him, and now the Bucs are going to release him.

That’s the word from NFL insider Adam Schefter of BSPN who just Twittered out that Revis’ days with the Bucs are numbered not by days, but by hours.

@AdamSchefter: Short of a trade in the next two days, the Buccaneers are expected to release CB Darrelle Revis by 4 p.m. Wednesday, per league sources.

Right now Joe doesn’t know what to believe but cutting Revis seems beyond drastic. If Revis is indeed unloaded, then you can add a crater at cornerback that needs to be filled. Along with (possibly) two offensive guard positions. And a No. 3 receiver. And of course, the always swing-and-a-miss at grabbing an edge pass rusher.

Oh, and that No. 13 pick last year and a draft pick for Revis this year? Wasted. Thrown away.

  1. Theodore Says:

    Dominik stunk at picks anyways.

  2. Pewter_Power Says:

    So tired of this franchise. It is emotionally exhausting supporting a team that continually blunders things.

  3. Chris Says:

    Blame Dom. Revis isn’t helping this team his salary is hurting it. We will find a trade partner.

  4. Theodore Says:

    This PFT comment about sums it up: “Wow Tampa Bay figured out a way to make the Jets look smart.”

  5. Destinjohnny Says:

    Dom actually thought we were a plAyer away. Unreal… We could have had Sheldon Richardson then he over pAys the guy

  6. NY Buc Says:

    So would it be too early to start the collection for the “Fire Lovie!” billboards?

  7. bucsfan1979 Says:

    what bull Spit

  8. Cmurda Says:

    WTF are they doing? Our secondary is crap without Revis. Im totally lost. I better just reserve judgement for later. Why would you release this guy with as much value as he has? Please dont let Lovie and Lights tenure start with a debacle.

  9. Oahubuc Says:

    “Revis isn’t helping this team”???? What?

    What??

  10. Rrsrq Says:

    If this happens, Lovie loses trust, he has the final say on the #53

  11. bucrightoff Says:

    I don’t think we can do better with the $16 million. Fully healthy he shuts down a whole side. He was top 10 last year even not 100%. We’re looking like Browns south if we cut him.

  12. Thegregwitul Says:

    Look I don’t want to see Revis leave the team, but that contract is brutal, even if there are no guarantees. If Revis is on his way out, I ask for just two things to take place:

    1. Trade him, do not cut him. I’m still hoping for a first round pick, but even a second round pick would suffice. Just don’t let the man go for nothing but the cap space, which you’d still receive by trading him.

    2. Sign impact players: Verner, Michael Johnson, an offensive lineman, Peanut Tillman, maybe even a surprise signing or two. Use the 40 million on cap space to rebuild the team and it’ll eventually lead to better days. It’ll be tough to lose Revis, but if the Bucs can’t justify the contract given to him by the previous regime, then use Revis to reload multiple positions, including CB and I think this move, while likely to cause panic and anger amongst the fanbase, will make the team better sooner than most of us realize.

  13. Eric Says:

    Don’t get the releasing part, unless they just can’t make the numbers work by keeping him and spending what is necessary to build the team.

    And no other team is gonna pay him twice as much as next cb.

    What a ridiculous contract by Dominik, now the guy isn’t even tradeable at all?

  14. Jaryd Says:

    Releasing revis would be a terrible decision with the cap moving towards 160 mil in 2 years anyways. The thing is nothing the bucs do will surprise me anymore. This is such a bucs move it hurts.

  15. lurker Says:

    also…

    ESPN’s Adam Caplan mentions free agent CB Alterraun Verner as a potential Revis replacement in Tampa.

    and

    CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports the Bucs are the “frontrunners” for free agent DE Michael Johnson.

    over 8 million per is a better value than bennet at over 8 million per.
    so these 2 players for revis? but they need to land them.

  16. Lynch Says:

    Haha so where can I buy a Banks and L. Johnson jersey? Jesus :(

  17. Destinjohnny Says:

    Man U guys don’t miss a trick- great reporting

  18. NJBucsFan Says:

    It wasn’t bad enough my Revis jersey was outdated because of the costumes the bucs and nike farted out, but now he won’t even be on the team…good grief.

  19. Vincente Says:

    I think real easing him would suck but all that money would be nice to have back. If they do I pretty sure they load up on free agents. Revis is good but not one player wins championships. They help but they can’t do it alone.

  20. Eric n DC Says:

    Losing Revis is not good because of the clear lack of talent at corner. But look guys, you fire the coach and the GM that traded for him. This is what happens when you bring in a new coach and GM, they will look at the roster with disgust. They want their guys. Sadly, in two years when Lovie is fired we get to go through this again as fans. Let’s just hope they redesign the uniforms again as well.

  21. Robbie_G Says:

    WHen the deal was made last year, I said WHY pay a CB 16 mil? A QB yes, JJ Watt sure, but this team was more then 1 CB away. It was a desperate move by the Rock Star and the College coach. I just hope they get something for him, and why you’re at it, get rid if Nicks too.

  22. Rrsrq Says:

    Is the word restructure not in their vocabulary, did they watch the 2012 secondary tape

  23. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Eric,

    Once news comes out that you are going to release him if you can’t find a trade partner, 9 times out of 10 that makes the player untradable. Why, as another team, would you give up a high draft pick to get someone you can get a day later without giving up any picks? Not to mention that he will come cheaper if released. I just can’t believe we would be cutting him. How do you get rid of one of your very few great players???

  24. Patrick in VA Says:

    It’s gotta man that they’ve got a wave of free agents ready to get onboard and they need the cap space to make the signings tomorrow. If the pats trade Joe mentioned works out along with a few free agent signings I think we’ll find a way to be comfortable with Revis gone.

  25. ryan Says:

    You all say that a 14th overall pick but no we did not. Even Joe thinks so. You have to realize that after this year his value when up. He had a pro bowl season, he also came out and said he is finally 100%. Last year there was a question mark on this about his knee. That is no longer there after starting a whole season. We can get more out of him then a 14th over pick, Like the jets did. We will look smart, very intelligent. Because a 14th over pick turned into a first round, a second and a third round pick. Hmmm… I support a trade even though I love Revis. Since we are in a division where there are 3 elite quarterbacks. Verner is also a pro bowler. Who could Definitely hold his own in our division.

  26. nate_tweetz Says:

    Trust Lovie… I think no one is in disagreement that Revis is grossly overrpaid. If the Bucs can pull off a trade (especially for draft picks), we would have over $40 million in cap space…$40 million!!! Lovie and Licht would be able to build this team the way they want to and potentially improve their draft situation. Plain and simple… Revis’ contract is an albatross around this team’s neck. In my opinion, you can’t fill holes with considerable talent at DE, CB, WR, and OL without (possibly) doing what they’re doing.

  27. Revis island 2014 Says:

    I don’t care about the money that we are paying him. He is still one of the best corners in the game if not the best. He shuts down an entire half of a field and he did that when he wasn’t even 100%. To let him go would be ludicrous and if he goes the bucs will be losing me as a fan as well. We are suppose to focus on winning and ridding this team of mediocracy not take the only talent we have in our secondary. Wtf. He is our secondary! It’s not his fault that Dom was an idiot and paid him that lucrative contract. But let’s be honest. None of us would have said no if we were in his position to get that money annually. So why would we punish him for out past regimes mistakes. The bucs will be fools if they let him go.

  28. gatherspeed Says:

    Can’t they just restructure and give him some guaranteed cash?

  29. Maze Says:

    Yes the contract is a little ridiculous, but to flat out release him for nothing is absolutely bullshit. Unbelievable if it goes down this way.

  30. Getaclue Says:

    Look here morons 40 mil in cap room you can get a 3wr rebuild the oline get edge rushers and solidify the defensive backfield. They should get a draft pick though,i would value a draft pick in this yeara draft more than in the one we gave ours in. It has nothing to do with scheme but value, you can guarantee we will get tillman at a value price who also leads the nfl all time in forced fumbles at db and can cover, you have guys like bailey and finnegan whom many of you were clamoring for last time he was available

  31. Mark Says:

    What the Buc is going on in Tampa?

  32. Patrick Says:

    @NJBucsFan………That really sucks man. I advise you not to buy any more Bucs jerseys, since no one over stays on the team long enough to matter.

  33. Walter Says:

    Alright, I’m in full on rage mode now. FU€K YOU LOVIE AND FU€K YOU LICHT.

  34. snook Says:

    He’s not going to be released.

    Earlier today, Bennett was headed to Chicago.

    Don’t believe everything you hear.

  35. Eric Says:

    @hawaiian,

    Yeah but surely they have tried to trade him and nobody will take his big contract. So, he has always been untradable.

    They can’t be so stupid to cut a guy they could have traded. The only reasonable explanation is they got no offers at all.

  36. N.C. FlorIdiot Says:

    I would rather keep Revis, but if they are going to make a move, why release him? That means we gave up a 1st and 3rd round pick last year just for one year’s service from Revis??? That’s insane. If they can’t make a trade, then hold onto him one more year, let him prove he’s worth being the highest paid corner, drive up his trade value for next year…

    The only reasoning I see out of this situation is that they must have someone big ready to sign with us and need the cap space, but that still leaves us out a 1st and 3rd rounder last year and a 4th this year, and a huge hole at corner… Is whoever they are going to sign worth those picks?

  37. UnderDog Lefty Says:

    Blaming past GM doesn’t explain the decision to just out and out cut him. If there is no viable trade options, then they need to keep him!

  38. bucrightoff Says:

    What message does this send to the team to cut arguably your very best player…for no discernably good reason? Lovie can’t figure it out? We know money is hardly an issue in this case. Cap is going up and there are other guys who can and will go in the years to come (Nicks, Penn, Williams). It’s just incredible. And this to save what, the difference between a 3rd and a 4th? Really hard to understand.

  39. Lynch Says:

    Every time I read these rumors people keep saying the same thing. Revis can be replaced. Yet no one can say who. It just seems one step forward and two steps back. If we are following Seattle’s model, they have Sherman. Who will we have?

  40. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    In Lovie We Trust

  41. Barry Says:

    Can you imagine if GS released DR? Worst case? Bucs get 3rd rounder and 16 million in cap

  42. Walter Says:

    What a FU€KING JOKE! If Lovie doesn’t win this year he’s on the hot seat. You better have a FU€KING PLAN if you’re going to release Revis, and if the plan is Verner, Cromartie, or Bailey then you need to get you god damn head checked Lovie!!!

  43. Architek Says:

    You cannot release him!!!!

    That’s a waste of picks….

  44. White Tiger Says:

    hahahahahah!

    How could anyone SERIOUSLY think this wasn’t THE play – foster trade opportunities by having Lovie talk about how he was “…looking forward to building a defense around him”?

    I would say I called it – but if you know Lovie or the Tampa-2 – you know how much of a WASTE of talent that would be (like a race horse pulling a manure wagon).

    The thinking is that the Bucs would be able to trade him – and it wouldn’t hurt them – problem is, you have to know very few teams are going to fall for that one (again).

    Here’s the kicker, what if we cut him and he ends up back with the Jets!?

    How gullible do you have to be?

    Oh, and by the way…since this one was so obvious (for anyone OUTSIDE Tampa Bay) – best go back and re-read Lovie’s comments about how much reflection he’d done after being fired in Chicago, and how he should have had a better offense in Chicago…

    Yeah, translation: good luck to all you Johnny Football fanz…that ain’t happening either.

    Que up the 1997 Buc theme song Marty – we’re going Back, To The Future!

    How sexy is Lovie looking to YOU now?

    Now, Josh McCown just might be a horse of another color…

  45. Buc1987 Says:

    Ha ha ha I saw a plethora of Revis jerseys at games last season. I guess they can go in the trash with the Freeman jerseys now.

  46. steve Says:

    Dont we keep the draft pick this year is Revis is cut by a certain date?

  47. William Says:

    relax people…

    Our next Super Bowl Team is ready to be birth. “Licht Up” the cubans my friends!

    You got to Lovie It!

  48. yar Says:

    You can’t make a championship team with “value” players only you need some great players, like Revis, McCoy, David and Clowney. No one is going to trade anything now that this crap has been puked out by an “insider” so here we go again, more “value” and no greatness.

  49. Eric Says:

    Revis is never going to get 16 million if they cut him, so why wouldn’t he agree to restructure and allow a trade?

    This is flabbergasting.

    I fully expected a trade, but never contemplated a release.

  50. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Make the Trade Happen Lovie & Licht-Get this ship back on track!

    GO BUCS!!!

  51. NY Buc Says:

    But wait wasn’t it reported several times how Lovie emphatically stated that Revis was crucial to he defensive scheme he was going to run in Tampa? Could he have been full of sh!t or just trying to help sell Revis jerseys? Speaking of jerseys I wonder if there was a new Revis jersey, isn’t that the litmus of whether a player will be with the Bucs next season?

  52. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I understand that cap space is like good but wended to get our money worth from the Revis trade. Whatever fa we get they will never be considered the best at their position. And we will still most likely over pay because all free agents are over paid. If we really do release Revis it will put the biggest stain on the new regime. People may love lovie but this will be a real bitter way to start the era if bucs.

    First hideous uniforms, then release a player who you have up a first and 4th round pick for?

    The only way to win menacing if this happens is if they draft a qb with the 7 pick. Otherwise I’ll be a very disgruntled fan.

  53. Jrokk26 Says:

    Stupid! Stupid!! Stupid!!!

  54. Buc1987 Says:

    OVERHAUL!

  55. broy34 Says:

    heres the thing. a team lik the 9ers and patriot might give up a couple seconds to restructure like LOVIES DUMBASS SHOULD. Heres the thing, if nobody does they better make some big moves: Johnson tillman mccluster verner…cap inflates next year..if they pass on bortles or bridgewater I will be disgusted…let Houston take mccown..the jags resigned henne..bridge will be there but the way this is going. JOE do you remember me telling you THEY WILL NOT DRAFT MANZIEL….this only affirms that…no balls on this regime

  56. Macabee Says:

    I don’t know if this is true or an attempt to get Revis and his camp to the table. However, I do believe it is a real issue now.

    The Bucs gave up a first-rounder in 2013, which was the 13th pick overall, a fourth-round pick in 2014, which becomes a third-round pick if Revis is on Tampa Bay’s roster on the third day of the new league year in 2014. The NFL 2014 new league year begins tomorrow at 4pm.

    The Bucs have already said they want to keep Revis. As lovie has said, Revis is valuable and he will fit into the schemes they plan to use in the secondary. But the question remains even though he is valuable – is Revis worth franchise QB money? If the Bucs decide the cap number is too high, I recommend they not restructure the old contract, but offer a new contract with guaranteed money.

    Revis is interested in making 96mil, but it is available only in increments of 16mil guaranteed each year, no guarantees. They should ask for consideration of the 16mil already earned. Then offer Revis a new 6 year contract worth 72mil with 2 years 24mil guaranteed with no offset language. The new contract plus money earned under the old contract presents an opportunity for Revis to be guaranteed to earn nearly the same money that he would have gotten for 3 years under the old contract – the expected time the Bucs likely would have honored the old contract anyway. The Bucs put 4mil annually back into cap space.

    If a new contract that still makes him the highest paid CB in the league (north of Sam Shields) is unacceptable to Revis and they can’t come to a mutual agreement, then I think they will seek to trade him for anything they can get before the 13th of March and or flat out cut him to retain our 3rd round pick, put 16mil back into cap space, and make a run in FA for a replacement from one of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Alterraun Verner, or Vontae Davis, and the elder statesman Charles Tillman. Then could then trade down in the draft and get one of Darqueze Dennard or Justin Gilbert in the 1st round.

    Let’s hope that reasonable minds prevail! The art of compromise is we both win!

  57. Sunny Says:

    Bad move, u lose fan base, trust in new staff, reduce pay or give him a year to figure it out. He made pro bowl on a bum knee can’t cut him now. Let’s see what he does with better health first

  58. Eric Says:

    Only Johnny Football can make up for this.

    It’s damn near as heartbreaking as when Bo decided to play baseball.

    Totally threw away a number one pick. Almost worth paying the guy to avoid the total embarrassment of it all.

    I can’t believe NOBODY would trade for Revis. But, I guess there are 16 million reasons why. Rock made the dumbest trade ever if this is true.

  59. Eric Says:

    No balls? This takes the biggest balls ever!

  60. JFat Says:

    Can get 2-3 above average cb’s with that money. Depth people. Get the third rounder back. Sign Johnson and OL help with the other 20 mill. Use the expanding cap to resign gmac/david. We aren’t winning a SB next year, playoffs if we’re lucky, Revis or not. People are freaking out way too damn much when we haven’t even seen who they get in FA.

  61. Buc1987 Says:

    Eric Says:

    “No balls? This takes the biggest balls ever!”

    I agree with Eric!

  62. Kansasbuc Says:

    If they cut Revis they are the most dumbest group of HC/GM tandem I have ever seen.

    Everyone keeps talking about how much money we’ll save.

    Who cares about the money when your constantly losing.

    “we can use the money on other players”

    Who knows how well they will pan out. Revis is very consistent and excellent at what he does. Most of the players we are looking at (i.e. McCown, Johnson) have not been very consistent. Revis IS THE BEST AT HIS POSITION. I would rather use the money on him then to give it to other players that MAY/MAY NOT pan out.

    This is not nuts!!!! If we release Revis we better sign EVERY superstar player coming into free agency.

  63. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Damn! Damn! Damn!

  64. Buc1987 Says:

    JFat Says:
    “Can get 2-3 above average cb’s with that money.”

    Damn if a few of us did not say that very same thing about 9 months ago….

  65. BROCKTACULAR Says:

    TRADE HIM TO THE RAMS FOR THE #2 PICK THEN GET CLOWNEY.

  66. The Real Drew Says:

    Why is everything great about Revis, except his monetary desires?

  67. Kansasbuc Says:

    We keep talking about “paying a CB that much money”. Well, who else are we going to pay???

    We have no QB that demands that much money.

    Why not keep Revis until that time comes up (probably no time in the near future).

    You have to be an elite player to get that type of money and no one in this free agency is close to elite; Revis is!

    I would rather keep Revis rather than lose him and overpay a bunch of “C” to “B” grade players.

  68. PRBucFan Says:

    This on the Glazers not Lovie white Ti- I means Ms.Cleo ;) figures you’d pop your head out during a horrible time for Buc fans.

    Yea I’m most likely done will all things Buc related for a while depending on how things pan out in these next few days.

    Screw you Glazers, thanks for reneging on Revis and the Buc fans.

  69. Kevin Says:

    HOLY HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though I want Revis to stay, If a trade came along that helps the team….whatever do it….BUT CUTTTING HIM?????!!!!!!!!!! What the hell would that prove. Are they that STUPID??? Why would you just release him??? I don’t understand. If this happens then all of my hope is lost for this team. I will have to switch to a full time bears fan which is where my relatives are all from. If I am wrong someone please explain to me how just releasing him would make any sense….

  70. Buc1987 Says:

    I just love watching fans freak out over all this. Names popping in here like we’ve never seen before.

    I trusted Schiano. Now it’s time for us to trust Lovie.

  71. Buc1987 Says:

    Kevin…all my relatives are Pats fans. Don’t do it!

  72. The Real Drew Says:

    And don’t you love how they broke this right before we go to bed? Sleep well everybody!

  73. Kansasbuc Says:

    “Let trade Revis for picks”

    Why???

    What are the odds of you getting a great (nevermind elite) player in the draft???

    On average, most players in the draft never pan out to be anything more than role players.

    We have an elite player…why not keep him???

    THIS MAKES NO SENSE TO TRADE REVIS!!!

  74. Dan Says:

    the two teams that are showing interest of way down on the waiver order I think this being released is a threat to those teams that if we don’t get the offer we want to we’re going to really soon and let some nobody sign him

  75. Kevin Says:

    Oh thats right I forgot they will have a third round pick if they cut him before Wednesday. That 3rd rounder should replace Revis…..NO PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glaziers need to take those new uniforms and go to the arena league if this happens………getting ready to need a new computer!!!!!

  76. The Real Drew Says:

    Hickey is over in Miami if you want to follow them.

  77. nate_tweetz Says:

    Lovie and Licht got to have a plan. I wouldn’t overreact at this point. You have no idea who they may land in free agency. They might already have some guys lined up to sign tomorrow. Revis is a good player, but he DID NOT shut down one side of the field last year. I love how some of you get these little sayings in your head that you hear or read in the media and just regurgitate it. Revis made it to the pro-bowl on name alone. He was ok… No where near what he was paid… And he won’t be worth what he is being paid ANY year of his contract. Let’s see how Lovie and Licht’s plan shakes out but keep the torches and pitchforks at the ready. If they release him and they shit the bed in free agency, I’ll light your torches for you myself. lol.

  78. ander Says:

    bucs are the browns of the south nuff said im pissed

  79. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    LOL

  80. Yar Says:

    Cheer up guys, the Bucs can get 16- $1 million dollar players for Revis that they can cut after training camp and get a 3rd instead of a 4th. Money is only good for what you can buy with it, the Bucs still have $28m in cap room if they keep Revis, but $44m to spend on “value” players if they cut him. We’ll see if that works.

  81. PRBucFan Says:

    Love y’all but I may not have any fun debating with y’all for a while.

    Let’s see how this pans out first.

  82. Dan Says:

    Bait to get the pats and brocs to step up offers so he isnt claimed on waivers by the falcons or some other low record/high talent team

    He won’t go through waivers.

  84. Dan Says:

    Ahh then that would be a dumb strategy. .. who would even suggest that?! ….

    Cheaper though to bribe a team for rights than a player still could be posturing

  85. JFat Says:

    So many sandy vaginas. Gonna be funny to read the posts after everything shakes out. Revis on the bucs is like having 20″ spinners on your 96 Sentra. They’re sending the wheels back to get a better car.

  86. Fan Since '76 Says:

    Lovie and Licht are blowing this team up. It started with Joseph. Revis is next and if I were Penn I’d list my house for sale. Even Dashon may want to consult a realtor. The key will be whether the Bucs spend up to the cap THIS year or if they say, “hey, we are a year away, and look at all the cap room we have for 2015! And we need the cap money to sign McCoy, and our young stars like Lavonte.” Same garbage we heard year after year following the Glazer’s purchase of the soccer team. If they enter 2014 with huge cap room then we need to look at Man U, which has the Glazers under big time pressure to sign players because of the team’s poor performance. That is where the money will go.

  87. JFat Says:

    118 mil cap floor, this has nothing to do with Man U. Can’t hoard money anymore.

  88. PRBucFan Says:

    It’s going to be funny to read all the posts from the posters that support this move bitching after our secondary goes back to the laughing stock it was before Revis.

  89. Joe Says:

    It’s going to be funny to read all the posts from the posters that support this move bitching after our secondary goes back to the laughing stock it was before Revis.

    Ding!

    Additionally where were these same people screaming how rotten this contract was last year at the time of the trade? Those same folks wanted to throw a parade for Revis.

  90. Capt. Tim Says:

    If they were to cut Revis( which I still don’t believe),
    Then the Team should immediately start looking for a new Coach and GM- because I was wrong, and these two would be idiots of biblical proportions.

    And somebody notify me if they get a good new coach. I’ve wasted enough of my life watching total fools coach and manage this team.

    It’ll free up more time on the boat, if I can finally divorce myself from this team.

    But again- I can’t imagine anyone being so stupid, as to cut an all pro player- that they could easily afford.
    But I kinda hope they do. It would finally wean me off of them. Plus I was shopping for new jerseys today, but didn’t pull the trigger.
    Perfect timing.

  91. PRBucFan Says:

    “Ding!

    Additionally where were these same people screaming how rotten this contract was last year at the time of the trade? Those same folks wanted to throw a parade for Revis.”

    Exactly lol, I’m going to be one bitter fan watching Revis win his ring with another team that is surely going to sign for less money elsewhere.

  92. Buc1987 Says:

    RB…he’s not going to win a ring in Tampa anytime soon anyways.

    J-Fat – The floor actually makes it easier for the Bucs to hoard/shift money. First, the 89% floor does not apply on a season by season basis; rather, it applies over the four years from 2013-2016. Meaning they can backload salaries to 2015-16 in order to achieve a four year average of 89%. Second, there is no real penalty if they miss the 89%. The labor agreement is full of outs and exceptions. Third, the cap will go up every year which further messes with the rolling average. Look, I hope they are not going this way, however, it is plausible and we need to keep our eye out. If they do start this crap again then our media needs to ask questions. The fact is we’ve stunk and been cheap since they bought the soccer team. I’m over it.

    1. You can’t no that and 2. That’s not the point

    If that’s the case let’s just let go of all our elite players so they can win their ring elsewhere….??? lol Negative

    Hey now keep in mind I was not here when the Revis trade went down. I did however ponder for awhile long before I found JBF why the Bucs did not just go out and get 2-3 above average DB’s for the money th were paying Revis. I did not see the need to go and get the best at the position. I did not mention it on JBF til around June or July, but Stevek will remember it as he told me I would eat my words when the season starts. So I’m not one of the people that was rah rah about getting him in the first place. Then again I did buy season tickets, because of him and Goldson.

    The only words I ate (and it was a whole crap-load of words) were the words on Freeman and Schiano. 3rd week in on Freeman, and 6th or so on Schiano.

    LOL PRB. I knew that would rile ya.

  97. PRBucFan Says:

    know not no lol whoops

  98. ChrisCo4Bucs Says:

    I’ve been a BUCS fan since’77, if they trade or cut Revis, that would rank way up there of the dumbest decisions this organization has ever made

  99. lion Says:

    100% false report of being cut. No way in hell the Bucs would admit it for one. Two, the team would only even think about it if they were near or above the salary cap. The team can afford his cap hit this year no matter what, so no chance of him being cut. You don’t let go of star players unless you absolutely need the cap space.

  100. Drew Thomas Says:

    REGIS IS BEST PLAYER ON THE TEAM MAKING THE MOST MONEY. THE BEST PLAYER MAKES THE MOST MONEY! BUG FANS ON THIS SITE ARE IDIOTS!

  101. Drew Thomas Says:

    SORRY AUTO SPELL CHECK. REVIS AND BUCS, IF WE GET RID OF HIM, THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS GIVING SOMEONE TO MUCH POWER. HE IS THE BEST SHUTDOWN CORNER SINCE DEION. COME ON PEOPLE.

  102. zam Says:

    so well put Joe

  103. P'cola Buc Says:

    Did we not all notice that Revis, our best player was NOT modeling the new uniforms?……we know the reason why now.

  104. lion Says:

    Revis is a great player for sure, top 3 on team, but not ahead of McCoy and David.

  105. Brandon Says:

    You guys that are pissed can now feel what I was feeling last year, when we made that stupid move. Of course you guys thought Revis would be great for us and I said from the start that trading high picks AND paying unrestricted free agent money to a guy coming off major injury was insane. Looks like ACTUAL NFL football minds agree with me (Licht and Smith) while the Madden GM All-Stars (Schiano and Dominik) are proven to be idiots once again.

  106. PRBucFan Says:

    Yes because he didn’t make the pro bowl and get voted All-Pro and still anchor our back end?

  107. bigpoppabuc Says:

    This one is on Licht. If he doesn’t like the contract Dom and Revis agreed to, then he better write another one that Revis will accept and that Licht finds to be better for the franchise. The fact that the new management doesn’t like Revis’ contract is not surprising. But to simply release him would be a big mistake. Keep him as is for another year at least. If he comes back to form, awesome…. His value’s gone up and his contract had gotten a year shorter.

    restructure or play it out another year… Those, to me are the best options for both the Bycs AND Revis.

  108. Jerry Says:

    No team will trade with us until Thursday. Because everyone now thinks the Bucs will release him in order to change the 4th rounder to a 3rd. And that’s why Schefter thinks the Bucs will release him on Wednesday. The Bucs want that 3rd rounder back.

  109. BoJim Says:

    PRBucFan Said:

    “It’s going to be funny to read all the posts from the posters that support this move bitching after our secondary goes back to the laughing stock it was before Revis.”

    Seeing that once was enough.

    Drew, stop yelling. Is your caps key stuck? ;)
