No “Momentum” On Revis, Glazers “Support” Bid

March 19th, 2013

For those praying for Darrelle Revis’ arrival in Tampa, the latest this evening on the Revis happenings, courtesy of Bucs beat writer Rick Stroud, might throw you into a depression.

Speaking on WDAE-AM 620 from the NFL owners meetings after a face-to-face session with Team Glazer, Stroud said there’s “not a whole lot of momentum for that deal right now.”

But Stroud did offer that rockstar general manager Mark Dominik and Greg Schiano will have the blessing of their boss. “[The Glazers] will support whatever the GM and the coach say needs to be done.”

Stroud went on to say Brent Grimes’ agent confirmed the Bucs’ interest in his cornerback client since the start of free agency.

Joe remains quite confident the Bucs will acquire Revis. Though with the historically unpredictable Jets involved, one can never be sure.

    As some of the asute (most of them are) posters on this site have noted, the Bucs may be putting too much emphasis on one man. One injury and he’s gone for the season. May well not be worth the gamble of so many picks and $. I’d let him go and take the picks – not so much on one (very expensive) guy.

    Watching our team not address any of our defensive needs is like water tourture. each DB that flies off the market…drip…drip…drip…drip

  4. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    and someone go find Ronde and demand a flippin answer already!!

  5. Buccfaninhawkeyecountry Says:

    Sign grimes. Only give up a 2nd a 4th and Blount for revis. They dont want it. F it go sign winfield, sheldon brown, or quinton jammer. Then tell the jets to f off and have a nice day.

  6. Patrick Says:

    Grimes and Winfield would provide us great depth in the secondary for a fair price. Then if we still got Revis and took a CB in the 1st, our secondary looks great. I’m actually way past Barber now. If he came back that’d be great but if he didn’t, it wouldn’t make much of a difference.

  7. Walter Says:

    I want Ronde to come back so he can add another playoff run to his career accomishments, make him a more likely first ballot HoFer five years later. If we sign Grimes, get Revis too, restructure Wright, sign Ronde, and draft a Cornerback in the second, our secondary would be stacked.

  8. kh Says:

    We dont need 4 CBs – just one or two free agents and maybe a draftee. L.Johnson or A.Gaitor could be a decent 4th corner. We’ll likely have some needs at either DT/DE or RT come draft time.

    I feel like Revis/CB issue is glossing over the fact that we don’t have a right tackle under contract right now. Why is no one asking Dominik about that?

  9. CC Says:

    Again the Panthers sign cb DJ Ware with no cap space. Decent player with 10 ints in last 3 years. Must have got him cheap and he is better than anybody on the Bucs backend.

  10. Nick B Says:

    Even if it’s re-signing Biggers I would like the Bucs to sign at least one CB. Soon please.

    Here’s the part I liked
    “Brent Grimes’ agent confirmed the Bucs’ interest in his cornerback client since the start of free agency.”

    That means from the start the Bucs were after Grimes. I’ve felt from the start that Grimes is the better route to go, simply because of picks, money and attitude.

    If the Bucs do get Revis, I’ll stand behind it, but I think he would be a cancer in the locker room.

  13. Tom Says:

    As you like to say Joe, its all just smoke and mirrors

  14. lurker Says:

    have the jets taken the reigns of ineptitude over from the raiders? the raiders seem “normal” since davis’ passing.

  15. Capt. Tim Says:

    ShuttheBucup- lol- water torture is exactly what it’s like.

    I don’t doubt that the Bucs are doing all the can to sign Revis.
    The problem is, the Jets first year GM. He doesn’t want to start his tenure by trading away their best player. I doubt he’s gonna work up the testicular fortitude to pull the trigger. I mean, I’m sure he lives in New York. He’s gonna be really unpopular when that team keeps losing

    My beef is – while they’ve focused on the unattainable, they have missed out on a dozen people that would have solved our problems. We don’t need on great player. We need 6 good ones.

    And we struck out. Again. Unforgivable

  16. Orlandobucfan Says:

    I hope the jets never again have a player the bucs are interested in, this is getting ridiculous.

  17. 1976Buc Says:

    @Joe: Isn’t there a 9 million dollar difference in cap money to the Jets if they deal him before June 1?

  18. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Dominik needs to hold firm and not buckle. Give your best offer, wait an appropriate amount of time for an answer, and if it doesn’t happen it doesn’t happen. Don’t bid against yourself. That’s how business is done. Move on and sign Grimes, re-work Wright’s contract and draft a starter in the first or second round. Everything else, along with all the fan noise, is just irrelevant. I’m sure Dominik knows this and is confident in what he’s doing.

    “Isn’t there a 9 million dollar difference in cap money to the Jets if they deal him before June 1?”

    I have seen that also. If it were the beginning of free agency I would think this would be an issue. But I don’t see it affecting them as greatly as some would think at this time. Mainly because there isn’t a lot of high end guys left.

  21. 1976Buc Says:

    If the numbers are true I don’t expect the Jets to get real serious until June 2.

  22. Fatmosh Says:

    1976, your numbers aren’t true. The Jets have space this year to absorb it. If they don’t absorb it this year, they do next year…but they would have rolled the extra money from 2013 into 2014, so it’s a wash.

  23. 1976Buc Says:

    Makes sense. Thanks.

  24. joey Says:

    well if they gonna sign grimes whats taking so long. Bucs have mess up our secondary

  25. bucobruce Says:

    So much to say,I will just say this, Bucs win atleast 2 playoff games but I got a feeling they will pull off a SUPERBOWL>Jump on the banwagon now.Lots of people cant believe how good I was last year at calling things.I BELIEVE GO BUC, WHOS WITH ME!

  26. bucobruce Says:

    DOM will make some great moves just wait!

  27. Raphael Says:

    After June 1st , is when the trade is most likely to happen….

  28. MTM Says:

    What is the Rock Star waiting for? Every decent free agent to be gone then say” we have a plan that we are sticking to”. Yeah its called continue to suck! WTF ! Que the Dominick fan club.

  29. Bucs Fan #238 Says:

    LMAO… The Grand Plan: “Continue to Suck”

    Good one MTM!

  30. Raphael Says:

    We are in fine shape, Rock star is in fact a Rock Star…just wait..

  31. Mike J Says:

    Actually, as reported,the less chance the Bucs have to acquire these damaged goods, the happier I seem to be….

  32. Dan Says:

    Bucs last again in 2013

  33. Bucs Fan #238 Says:

    Sometimes I think that these GMs don’t play ENOUGH Madden.

    I know that sounds like a ridiculous statement… but there are a lot of industries and military outfits that use simulation trainers to teach their people how to make good decisions in a simulated environment.

    Madden is, for what it’s worth, a pretty good simulator. These GMs and personel people probably should use Madden as a training device that helps them with “what-if” scenarios.

  34. Robbie_G Says:

    Mike J, I was thinking the same thing. Let the Jest…oops Jets throw up in their mouth and watch Revis walk away after the season. With the rookie wage scale, keep the top picks. Also next year, do they Keep Freeman and pay him?

  35. 4everBucsFan Says:

    ….and the wheels on the bus go round and round….

  36. Bucs Fan #238 Says:

    (Rotoworld)ESPN New York reports the Jets are in “no rush” to trade Darrelle Revis, and are willing to let the situation play out until after the draft.
    Analysis: Per reporter Rich Cimini, GM John Idzik is “content to wait for 2014 compensation.” The apparent thinking is that it would be better to have multiple first-round picks in a draft that’s expected to be much richer in QB talent. It’s a rare bit of patience and foresight from a Jets team that was often hasty and ill-considered in the final years of the Mike Tannenbaum era. A pre-draft trade is still possible, but someone is going to have to knock the Jets’ socks off.

  37. Bucs Fan #238 Says:

    My take: Waiting is the best thing the Bucs can do… this gives them the time needed to see if Revis is healed and can run.

    Plus, we don’t need a QB, but we do need the high draft picks this year… so it serves us best to use the draft picks this year for our defense… then post draft, trade for Revis…

  38. jose Says:

    Singn Grimmes keep Wright and pick up Mike Jenkins for real cheep then go and draft a cb in the second and hello playoffs! Imo

  39. jose Says:

    Revis will hurt our future! Dont do it Dom…

  40. Bucs Fan #238 Says:

    I like that jose… but what I would do is:

    1) Sign Deangelo Hall to a 2 year deal
    1b) Sign Freeny or Dumerville
    2) Hold onto Wright as leverage for Revis until after the draft
    2b) Keep Blount as a 2nd RB
    3) Draft Xavier Rhodes (saw him on NFL Network at the FSU pro day… I’m sold)
    4) Draft top DE/DT in round 2
    5) Do it again in round 3

    Then after or during the draft, if the Jets want to still trade Revis, make a trade with next year’s pick and maybe a late pick this year from us.

  41. Raphael Says:

    No ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    No. There ya have it

  42. Raphael Says:

    Sign Winfield and Israel idonjie

    Trade this years 4th and. 6th pick. And NEXT years 1st for Reavis

    Get Hankins or Lotulelei in the first and. Banks or trufant (he will be gone tho ) in the 2nd .
    Get lb Kaseem in the 3rd

  43. Vic66 Says:

    Joe::: Do you know if Domonic reads this blog?

  44. lurker Says:



  45. Buc'It Says:


    So you say no to Hall who is far younger than Winfield and FAR more athletic but say yes to a corner who is ancient and well beyond the down side of his career and slow as molasses? Oh he can tackle… who cares. Your logic is clearly moronic obviously.

  46. Killian Says:

    Weren’t the Bucs trying to trade for Mike Jenkins during last year’s draft? If so, why haven’t we signed him by now. Why waste time and draft picks with Revis when he will be a FA next year? Now that we lost Bennett and Miller we need to draft a DT/DE with the first round pick, CB with second. The Bucs will be in good shape this season with an improved secondary. Bowers will be better than Bennett and anyone can do what Roy Miller did, which was to take up blockers for DEs and Mccoy.

  47. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Hall was, is, and will always be a selfish, me-first player. I would take Revis, even, over that cancer.

  48. raphael Says:

    @bucit Winfield is tough and gritty, not sure where you get your facts,
    Hall is a selfish moron ,

    you have no logic , obviously

  49. finishers Says:

    Get sandcastle!

  50. iamabuc Says:

    It’s just a smoke screen from the Jets, to sort of “confirm” the value of Revis o try to raise his value; when they know that his better days are over .
