Your Darrelle Revis Non-Update/UpdateMarch 13th, 2013
Joe knows there were Bucs fans up past 1 a.m. pining for news that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik pulled off a trade for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis.
(If Revis comes to Tampa Bay, he will no longer be known as “Revis Island,” but instead, “Mons Revis.”)
This morning, NFL Network is running intelligent programming, doing a non-stop free agency marathon. Located at Floral Park, home of the Jets, Kimberly Jones reporting live, had no updates on the status of Revis. She did say “definitely” the Bucs “were in discussions” with the Jets yesterday, but nothing has come of those discussions, at least not yet, and everything is, in her words, in “a holding pattern.”
Last last night, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, the great Mike Florio, noted that Revis and/or his agent have not been contacted. Joe would have to guess Dominik won’t pull a trigger on a trade unless a new contract was worked out. Nor should he.
So there you have your Revis non-update/update as of 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Obviously, if there is anything newsworthy, Joe will post it.
UPDATE: NFL Network reported Jets general manager John Idzik isn’t in his office today. He’s in Tuscaloosa attending Alabama’s Pro Day.
