Puzzled By Expected Revis Disposal

Joe is not alone

Normally, Joe would be geeked today because, though history suggests it is Fool’s Gold, free agency is sort of like Christmas in March for NFL fans.

But Joe just cannot shake the depression of the explosive news last night that the Bucs are seriously considering cutting — cutting! — all-world corner Darrelle Revis.

For every person that says Revis’ contract is too heavy, Joe points to the 2012 near-NFL record the Bucs set by having the most galling of gutless pass defenses Joe has ever seen. Last year, with a hobbled Revis returning from surgery, the Bucs improved from a near-NFL all-time worst, to No. 17 in passing yards allowed — with virtually no pass rush to speak of.

And that was because of Revis. Now 100 percent, imagine what he would be like even with an improved pass rush?

But it seems the Bucs are not willing to shave salaries elsewhere, and instead, with to throw Revis in a trash dump tomorrow if they cannot trade him. Joe just cannot wrap his mind around this and it seems Greg Bedard, the X’s and O’s guru of theMMQB.com, is totally lost on the Bucs’ desire to wash their hands of Revis at all costs.

First of all, I don’t understand why the new regime of coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht is dead set on parting ways with cornerback Revis. Yes, I know he makes $16 million per season. But if the market is $9.75 million for a player like Sam Shields, who has been good to this point and the Packers are banking on him being great in that deal, Revis is worth at least $13 million – and that $16 million will look better as the cap increases toward the final year in 2018. I could understand not wanting to pay another player that much if you had a star quarterback commandeering most of the cap, but the Bucs don’t have that, and if they find that guy in the draft, they’re still years away from having to pay a franchise quarterback contract. And despite appearances, Revis is a scheme fit. Smith has said that the team will rise and fall by how they play man to man. And Revis is still, by far, the best man coverage cornerback in the game. Why not give it at least one year to see if he’s worth the money?

Joe simply does not understand this either, and fans that seem to be jumping on the bandwagon for this apparently do not remember just how horrid that Bucs pass defense was in 2012. In a division with Drew Brees, Matty Ice and Cam Newton, you are going to throw off the roster at worst the second-best corner in the NFL?

Hope Bucs fans stock up on TUMS this fall. Joe already is wanting to heave.

    love the site joe, but starting to question your football iq.

    he’s overpriced and we have more holes than a wicker basket.

    cutting him seems extreme, but it means a 3rd round vs. a 4th round pick. tough decision have to be made.

  2. bucrightoff Says:

    Florio on PFT suggested teams like New England, Denver and Atlanta might pay MORE for Revis than what we are. Imagine if that happens, it’ll make us look even more embarassing than we already do. Lovie and Licht have put a ton of pressure on themselves right away with these moves. If this team goes 6-10 and shows no signs of improving, fire Lovie right away and lets do what we did for Gruden: Offer the 49ers the picks they want for Jim Harbaugh.

  3. bigpoppabuc Says:

    Its totally ruined the day we’ve been waiting for,Joe. I’m sick to my stomach… And fear this kind of move will haunt my bucs for years to come.

    _______________________________________________________________

    Speaking of questioning football IQ, a top 3 player at his position, a player we cannot replace or even replicate what he does, is worth 32 spots in the draft, aka the difference between the 3rd and the 4th? Our franchise is screwed if Licht is thinking like this.

  5. meh Says:

    I’m with Joe 100% on this one. Cutting Revis would be very foolish.

  6. Orca Says:

    Wow, the craziness on this board continues to amaze me.

    We are actually on the exact same page Joe(s).

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    The only thing good about the Revis rumors is, it takes Joe’s mind off of Johnny Jackass for a couple of days.

  9. Buc Neckid Says:

    Don’t you think that this “cutting” Revis chatter is all put out there by Revis’ Agent?
    Why would the Bucs do that?
    It probably is all about negotiating a deal with Teams in the Entire League in Free Agency if Revis gets cut vs. taking a paltry $16 Million from Only teams that have Cap Space necessary

  10. Erick Says:

    You dont get rid of one of the best defensive players in the game! But hey, now we can get Josh McCown with the money saved.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    @Joe, I too want to heave! Barring some crazy miracle of a trade involving multiple— multiple picks, I just can’t see how this is a positive move for us.

    There are not many good FA’s available this year anyways, especially cornerbacks! And draft picks are never a sure thing, so we would need to get at least 2 additional picks.

    We have already given up our 1st rounder from last year. The different between a 3rd or 4th round pick this year in now way equals having a top-2 corner on your team! What are people thinking??

  12. Joe Says:

    he’s overpriced and we have more holes than a wicker basket.

    Don’t agree that he is overpriced and now you have not just another hole, but a freaking crater.

  13. pablo Says:

    Revis won’t be traded.
    His jersey is available in the bucs jersey shop

    That’s joes logic about glennon

  14. simeon 97 Says:

    How can anyone be surprised by this? The cost relative to the benefit in Lovie’s system is not worth it. Though this def was a blunder from an overall team personnel perspective, but that all started with Dom/Schiano’s incompetence.

    Has anyone watched football lately? One super highly paid player taking up cap space is a hindrance to success. Though, we’ll see if they decided to use the cap space we have.

  15. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    I gotta tell you joe, I can’t be more excited for Today! right now the only thing that would top all the excitement is if Licht emailed every team the Bucs roster and said other than McCoy and David give me your best offer on all the others.

    Fix this mess Lovie, Be a Legend!!!

    Its a Great Day in Tampa Bay!!!!!
    Go Bucs!!!!

  16. unbelievable Says:

    * in NO way

  17. bucrightoff Says:

    Verner at his best is at least a full level and maybe two below Revis. And he’s goin to cost at least $10 million a year. Simply put we have no way of getting value here better than Revis whether people want to admit it or not. Using what players we could get for the same money is kind of foolish. You cannot replace what Revis does short of getting Richard Sherman. And when he’s an All-Pro next year for New England or Denver, we’re going to look even more foolish than we go right now.

  18. PRBucFan Says:

    I’ll tell you what, if we lose Revis for absolutely nothing, there is NO excuse for it.

    It is absolutely a reflection of poor management and decision making and would not be a good start to this regime.

    And this is coming from one of the biggest Lovie and Licht supporters on this board.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    Robert…put down your xbox or ps4 controller.

  20. rayray1 Says:

    Lots of holes & not enough draft picks or money to fix it. Looks like Lovie & Licht see a much worse team than the general fan. Just like Dungy, Gruden, Morris & Schiano before them they must feel like they have to do it their way if their going to be responsible for success or failure.

  21. bwf921 Says:

    Sam Shields = $9.75 million , Brent Grimes = $10 million. I am not seeing how Revis is overpaid. Frankly every one of these guys are overpaid. So we may be over by $2 million. What will the drop off be between Revis and whoever they think can replace him. I say keep him, pay him and have the best corner in the game.

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Realist…I’m with you.

  23. Joe Says:

    Sam Shields = $9.75 million , Brent Grimes = $10 million. I am not seeing how Revis is overpaid. Frankly every one of these guys are overpaid. So we may be over by $2 million.

    Voice of reason.

  24. PRBucFan Says:

    Realist you seem to be confused…

    If you think Lovie was brought in with a “5 year rebuild plan” for this team and not with the belief from the Glazers that he can help them turn this around quickly your very mistaken lol.

    Keep waiting for that, because he’ll be out the door before you know it lolz

  25. Buc1987 Says:

    “Sam Shields = $9.75 million , Brent Grimes = $10 million”

    Wow the Bucs could have had TWO players for about 3 million more than one player (Revis).

  26. Patrickbucs Says:

    I really hope they do not cut him. If they do trade him I hope they get at least 2 high picks back.

  27. ChrisCo4Bucs Says:

    DO NOT get rid of #24

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    PRB…I think they would grant him the 5 year plan if he needs it. I don’t see too many tickets being sold in the process. At this point I don;t realoly care if it is a 5 year plan.

    5 years seems about right though. Even though we were told by numerous people all last season that the Bucs are LOADED with talent.

  29. PRBucFan Says:

    If they ran into the problem of not having enough money to sign who they wanted I could see your point, but that simply didn’t happen lol.

    If they wanted more CB’s they could go get one even with Revis on the roster ;)

    Come on now hahaha

  30. ChanEpic Says:

    I don’t get it either Joe. Everything you quoted from Mr. Bedard is spot on. The salary isn’t/shouldn’t be the only consideration, Mr. Revis is IN HIS PRIME RIGHT NOW, and we’re still in a division with Cam Newton, Drew Brees, and Matty Ice, and I understand the need to rush the passer but what about locking down Julio Jones, Steve Smith, Roddy White, and Marques Colston? Rushing that passer is 2/3 of the urgency in our division, shutting down prolific WRs should be the other third and who is going to do that if Revis leaves? I’m really shocked they are considering cutting him. What’s that old saying about GMs grave stones? “Her Lies Jason Licht, the guy who let Revis walk for nothing:

  31. PRBucFan Says:

    and False lol

    That IS NOT the intention Lovie was brought in with and I GUARANTEE you along with the rest of Tampa will be crying for his head by year three of he’s not winning lol.

    Denial means nothing ;)

    Sorry but that’s not happening hahaha

  32. SAMCRO Says:

    Yeah but a lot of the years prior to 2012 our secondary was ranked in the teens annually and we didn’t have Revis then, so what makes you think that we can get there again without Revis and his million dollars a game?

    If Revis would come down from Mount Olympus and restructure

  33. pete Says:

    You don’t build a Great team by eliminating Great players.
    BUT, we must wait and see whether the $16,000,000 buys 3 starters.

  34. Sarcastro Says:

    Yeahhh, because our pass defense was so great last season (16th). Why is any of this a surprise. Changes in management always bring changes in personnel. Cover 2 defenses have never valued shutdown corners, so this is a decision based on the sustainability of THIS team’s salary structure.

  35. PRBucFan Says:

    And again your new role of the negative nancy sucks

    Just sayin’

    Not a good fit for ya

  36. Erick Says:

    In a year or 2, $16 million for an elite corner will be a bargain. Grimes and Shields for $10 million? Prices will only be going up as salary cap increases.

  37. Bucks_Sam Says:

    Overpaid or not, cutting him without getting something for it, is a mistake.

    You cut your loses when you have no other choice. Cutting Revis to save a 1 – 4 million (after you get another CB worth his salt) is preposterous.

    While I think we should keep him, trading him isn’t as bad espeically considering ESPN is reporting pretty much every team (less the Jets) is interested.

  38. ctord Says:

    it will boil down to system and scheme. Lovie will probably put in a version of the Tampa 2. this is a zone coverage scheme. We all saw Revis struggle in zone coverage. I believe two things here. Revis is a top three cover corner but Lovie does not need a cover corner in his system. This is why he is overpaid to the Bucs. It sucks but this purge will show you how awful the coaches were last year. they chose players based on talent not whether or not they fit a system. Players need to fit the system and scheme not go get the players and implement a system. A players success in the NFL is based on there strengths and weaknesses in a particular system. this is why so many free agent signings are busts because they look great in one system and crappy in another.

  39. Patrick in VA Says:

    I can’t imagine they would just arbitrarily cut him without a solid plan in place. You don’t cut someone like him and then cross your fingers and hope to replace him in the draft. Let’s first see if the cut even happens and, if so, see what that translates to afterward. Lovie didn’t come here to dismantle the team just to do it. He’s forgotten more about football than anyone commenting here will ever know. Let’s take it down a notch and see what happens

  40. Joe Says:

    Yeahhh, because our pass defense was so great last season (16th).

    Yeah, Bucs went from a near-83-year worst record to middle of the pack by basically adding a hobbled Revis.

    In Joe’s eyes, that’s pretty damn significant.

    Hope everyone so happy about dumping Revis on the side of the road remembers this day when some has-been or never-was gets roasted by Matty Ice.

  41. bucrightoff Says:

    When people talk about how Revis doesn’t fit into Tampa 2, do they realize the truly frightening part of that sentence? The implication that we’re going to be running Tampa 2, outdated and totally solved by defensive co-ordinators? If Lovie is running it full time, just fire him now and save us the two years before he gets fired anyways. If he indeed has learned nothing from Chicago, its gonna be ugly.

  42. lurker Says:

    Profootballtalk reports Darrelle Revis is unwilling to take a pay cut to facilitate a trade.

    It’s hardly a surprise. Revis’ best card is to refuse any and all requests to take a pay cut, forcing his release. He’d then be free to pick his own team, and get some guarantees beyond 2014. Even the Browns would reportedly insist on a pay cut in any potential trade. It’s unclear what the Raiders’ stance is. The Raiders have the cap room to absorb Revis’ $16 million salary.

  43. Chrisfresh23 Says:

    We better not get rid of him.. We have no depth at cb and Tillman is no revis and neither is any other corner out there in the market.. With that said our pass defense has been notorious in the past couple if years for costing us games and we play in the NFC south where stoping the pass game is critical….. All I can say is lovie and Jason need to really consider all if this before dumping a type of player that our franchise has never seen before at the cb position.. Heck ronde was good but not even he is Revis… Smh at our front office

  44. lurker Says:

    they are cutting of nose to spite face…

  45. Buc1987 Says:

    ctord…many many many people have already stated that Lovie stated that the defense will live or die with man coverage.

    So what’s this your saying about the “scheme”?

  46. bucsalltheway Says:

    he should just restructure no matter what pick it cost us which likely if we keep him would be a 3rd rounder…whats about to go down if it goes down today would be like the redskins trading rg3 after the rams already burned them up an gaining extra picks for a player brung in to fill a void…..now we still had a horrible record but he played pretty well coming off injury but i have a feeling if we let him go someone is gonna get the monster version of revis…

  47. Bucs4Life Says:

    Revis is a key cog in making this defense potentially elite. Who are our corners without him? Peanut Tillman with his torn triceps and 30+ years is going to fill his shoes? I just don’t understand why Lovie WOULDN’T want Revis playing for him during his first year in Tampa.

  48. Macabee Says:

    Busy day today. Twitter has crashed!

  49. DWE Says:

    Let me see someone else can pay him the big $ and we can go backward in the secondary. we already paid and a lot for him that we cannot get back in the way of draft picks. he is not overpaid. we took all the risks and now that he is healthy we are cutting him. i want to puke. anyone have Smith’s cell number. He and I need to talk asap. Better yet I will put my wife on the phone with him. She always wins the arguments anyway. lol

  50. Couch Fan Says:

    I have to believe that there is a plan in place here. It seems extreme but I’m gonna wait and see how it plays out first. To many things just don’t make sense right now.

  51. muchacho Says:

    Geez it’s not like he’s stealing the money…

  52. ctord Says:

    @ bucrightoff. I agree with your take on the Tampa 2. I was saying that Lovie will implement a variation of it. I believe it will be a zone coverage scheme based on track record and only track record. no formal knowledge but cutting a guy like Revis almost makes that take certain.

  53. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    “The contract Darrelle Revis signed with the Bucs gives teams the RIGHT to convert his BASE SALARY to a signing bonus “WITHOUT HIS CONSENT” to bring the cap number down.

  54. PRBucFan Says:

    Exactly LUV and that my friend is how they can move Revis in a trade, allowing the team to rework a contract with him once he get’s there.

    He won’t have any say lol

  55. Z-Bucs Fan Says:

    Just imagine how many more back-up caliber players we can buy if we were to cut McCoy also. I mean, he’s making 1st round money now, and will only want more next year. By the current line of thinking, we should cut our losses now.

  56. SAMCRO Says:

    Joe said,

    “Hope everyone so happy about dumping Revis on the side of the road remembers this day when some has-been or never-was gets roasted by Matty Ice.”

    I guess you must’ve missed the games last year where Revis got roasted.

  57. Macabee Says:

    Revis has become the hottest commodity in FA. Somebody, like the Bucs last year is going to go all in on some kind of trade.

    If Revis is not careful, he is going to be traded to some hell hole like the Raiders who are flush with cap space and can easily do this deal. Revis should be cooperating with the Bucs and a team of choice that has a chance of getting a ring and he might enjoy playing for.

    This need not be a travesty, but calmer heads need to prevail so there is some semblance of win win win for all parties involved when this is all said and done!

    ______________________________________________

    Revis, he of multiple holdouts, is going to care about the Bucs not being total losers here? Yeah no, he wants his full release now and will do whatever he can to do it. He will not help the Bucs at all.

    And if you think where he is traded matters, remember he can always hold out again. That alone will scare the Browns and Raiders. Thats why the want him to renegoatite, to at least show them he wants to be there. He won’t, so they won’t be rolling the dice knowing it could result in an instant holdout.

  59. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    You can actually REDUCE his cap hit for (2014 down to $1 mill)-And pay the rest to him in a Bonus-The bidding war between Cleveland & Oakland is intense. Don’t be shocked if we get a High round draft pick out of this (No swap)+2nd rounder.

  60. PRBucFan Says:

    @bucrightoff

    He won’t have any say lol”

  61. Max Says:

    just REDO HIS DEAL!!! Give him more guaranteed money in exchange for a softer hit on the cap!! We won’t get value out of him unless we trade him for what we gave up last year.

    Hope everyone so happy about dumping Revis on the side of the road remembers this day when some has-been or never-was gets roasted by Matty Ice.

    I’m with you Joe, and completely agree on what bwf921 said. If you look at what Shields and Grimmes are being paid, then Revis is worth 13.5 – 14 mil/year at least. You can’t tell me the other 2 million is reason enough to purge an elite starter for _______ (unknown) in return.

    I’m hoping Couch is right, and there is a serious plan already in place and we just don’t know about it. But I can’t think of too many skilled CBs on the FA market right now. Or as some people alluded to earlier, they’re just trying to gauge interest / work on a restructure. These next 24 hours are going to be crazy.

  63. Daffy Buc Says:

    Revis is not worth 16 million a year. He got toasted against Carolina and the Saints!! That effort against young Saints receivers was horrible.

    That is what stood out when Love Light looked at the tape. That being said we
    will have much better depth and talent with the cap space. I hope they trade him for something.

  64. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Wow-C’mon ya’ll -Give the front office some Props/They making moves

    WE NEEDED A SHAKE-UP!!! WE HAVE TONS OF HOLES!! LET THESE MEN-RIGHT THE SHIP!!!!

  65. mark2001 Says:

    Big Dog is saying exactly what I was saying this morning about Oakland and Cleveland trading for Revis…as much as I hate having him say the same thing, I have to say he is rr rrr rrrright…man that was tough.

  66. bucrightoff Says:

    We do have tons of holes. Like the worst secondary in the NFL. We don’t have a top 3 corner or anything to rectify that do we?

  67. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @PRBucFan

    Lol, Wow listen to some of these folks man. Let Lovie & Licht move these pieces-Apparently they see the board a lot better than us. I’m excited

    GO BUCS!!!!

    Do your Thang LOVIE & LICHT-Make us Proud!!!!

  68. BoJim Says:

    You know what I think? I think Lovie might have some sort of plan. ;)

  69. PRBucFan Says:

    If we lose him at no compensation and with no key FA acquisitions it will be a huge fail to the beginning of this regime.

    I don’t think that’s going to happen though.

  70. Mike J Says:

    I know Lovie & Licht watched all game film on 2013 season. They need to break out the 2012 film in the secondary. Banks is young and still 2-3 years away from being a solid corner. What’s left after that. we need 3 solid corners and we will be left with a 2nd year player who is still clearly not an everyday nfl player yet. I hope all of this is just smoke. Lets pay 8-10 million for DE end that can’t get more than 6 sacks a season and not pay a shut down corner. Why are we saving 16 million for. It is not for this free agent class which sucks. I am all for value, but lets have a good product on the field.

  71. MTM Says:

    @ Joe- lay off the bong water. Its effecting your thinking. Revis is ONE player. This team has so many needs to fill. The quickest way to stop passing is by pressure on the QB or putting him in the dirt not this all world, Revis sandbar BS. Revis can go get “paid” elsewhere. Go be a distraction on another team.

  72. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    To all the NEW SCREEN NAMES-THANKS FOR COMING TO JBF-Please stay-We need new blood-We all family here!!

    GO BUCS!!!

    I agree with Luvmybucs

    now trade revis for a third or second round pick!!!!

    Fix this mess Lovie, and Be a Legend!!!

    Its a Great Day in Tampa Bay!!!!!
    Go Bucs!!!!

  74. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    @The_Buc_Realist

    Yes Sirrrrrrrr

  75. Joe Says:

    Revis is ONE player.

    One DOMINANT player.

    This team has so many needs to fill.

    And now has one more the size of Lake Okeechobee.

  76. BirdDoggers Says:

    PRBucFan, agreed, a terrible start to this regime if Revis is lost for nothing. Replacing one of the best defenders in the league won’t be easy. It’s not like the Bucs are stacked at CB.

  77. Sapp, STFU Says:

    People, stop belly-aching about the move. They’re going to do what they’re going to do. When it comes down to it, if the moves helps us get more wins, then do it.

    if you dont agree with joe as i do on everything he said in this [Joe appreciates your support, but c’mon man!]! i really respect lovie but come on man the bucs havent been legit playoff contenders for 12 years i fucking hate that we finally have a superstar player and we dump him after one year and is hands down the best corner we’ve ever had hes a h.o.f. people!…

  79. Harry Says:

    Cutting Revis is just beyond stupid

  80. Que589 Says:

    Lovie & Licth are retooling the roster. You need the funds to allocate towards that mission. Revis refused to take pay cut. Bucs brass saw the tape of a 4-12 team and w/ aspirations to compete immediately a roster overhaul is needed, and it takes money to make that happen

  81. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    “Settle down, have some dip.” – George Carlin

    lol

    Classic…@Sapp, STFU

    Thanks for posting that.

  82. MTM Says:

    @Joe that one dominant player got how many wins last year. That’s right 4. So when Revis is at 100% it might be 5. When Revis starts covering 2 players at one time. Then I will agree he is worth 16 million per year. This regime has a plan and has begun implementing it.

  83. Teddy Says:

    By the time it’s all said and done, Revis and his $16 mil will be out, and Tillman with his $7 mil a year, three year deal will be in, and they’ll be able to spend that $9 mil delta on a couple of stud O-linemen. And I’m cool with that.

  84. Tim Says:

    If revis is cut or traded for next to nothing. I will not be going to any Buc game this season whether or not lovie brings a competitive team.

  85. BK Says:

    Revis is OVER-rated and OVER-paid. -Richard Sherman

    When your CB is listed in the same salary range as the QB position there is something wrong with the deal and bucs front office. Thank you and good riddance Dominick. L&L is just trying to clean up this mess.

    Buc Fans- relax…lets see how this is all hashed out in the end. One player does not make a team. This is not a super bowl contending team…give them time.

    Speaking of questioning football IQ, a top 3 player at his position, a player we cannot replace or even replicate what he does, is worth 32 spots in the draft, aka the difference between the 3rd and the 4th? Our franchise is screwed if Licht is thinking like this.

    So having a top 3 player at a position is a recipe for success then? Kind of like when we made Jeff Faine the highest paid center in the NFL… or how about the Raiders, they’ve had the best kicker and punter in the NFL for nearly 10 years… all it leads to if you don’t have a balanced team, is losses. We went 4-12 WITH Revis…what makes you think we couldn’t actually improve the roster significantly with the cap space created?

    A lot of dummies point to paying a pass rusher like Mivhael Johnson half of Revis’ salary as a stupid move as well as jettisoning Revis… sorry folks, good NFL defenses are built from the defensive line back, not the secondary forward. Look what the Panthers did when their best CB was Captain Munnerlyn…. it didn’t matter who their DBs were, their pass rush was terrific. Seattle and their D… yeah, they have a great secondary, but it wasn’t the secondary that constantly made Peyton Manning throw well before he wanted to, it was the pass rush.

    Joe we may be polar opposites on our opinion about Glennon and your desire to land Johnny Football, but damned if I don’t feel your pain about Revis. All pro talent like that plus he makes the other corners on the team better…crazy to let that walk for nothing.
