Revis Shopping Heats UpFebruary 27th, 2013
The Bucs can’t fix their heinous secondary with one new face, but adding Darrelle Revis to the defensive backfield would deliver an immediate impact felt across the NFC.
Per the New York Daily News, new Jets general manager John Idzik was shopping a trade of Revis at the NFL Scouting Combine, which ended yesterday. Idzik worked about 10 years in Tampa alongside Bucs rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, the Bucs desperately need a cornerback and have the available cash to pay Revis, and Revis played for Dave Wannstedt in college, which means he’s probably in the “Buccaneer Man” mold Greg Schiano often references.
You think the Bucs were a part of those trade talks? Joe sure does.
Revis is coming off a blown knee and surgery. He’s supposed to be on schedule to return before training camp. Joe would give up just about anything — not Rachel Watson — for a healthy Revis, but that knee injury has to significantly cut Revis’ value.
Even though guys return to top form faster and faster from major knee surgery, Joe would vomit if the Bucs coughed up more than a first round pick and an insignificant player.
