Revis Coming To Tampa — For Physical

April 21st, 2013

darrelle revis 0313It’s going to be a wild couple of days.

Per BSPN, Darrelle Revis is making his way to Tampa for medical testing tonight.

Also, per BSPN, the Bucs and Jets have agreed to compensation that includes the 13th overall pick this year and other picks, However, BSPN is not saying who’s trading what additional picks where. Joe suspects there could be multiple picks swapped on both sides.

Joe will continue to update as the day goes on, of course.

Rockstar general manager Mark Dominik will be addressing media tomorrow afternoon. C’mon Mr. Barber, make Dominik’s news conference a double-dose of secondary help.

    I hope we get atleast there 2nd or 3rd pick back if we are goin to give up our 13th

  2. Vic66 Says:

    We just have to hope/trust that Domonic has his big boy pants on and will make the right decisions. Will Dr Andrews examine him?

    Ronde it’s time for you to say 1 more year!

  3. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Everyone knows we need secondary help. Help has arrived. We may very well now have them best secondary in football. Yet I would bet willing to bet my house that they same old fans who are always crying will be crying some more today. I mean, let’s not be happy that we got probably the best defensive player in football. I’m sure we could have done better with the #13 pick. That’s always a sure thing.

  4. jb Says:

    Joe, I agree, it would be nice to have Ronde tell us he’s coming back for at least one more shot! While on paper, we may not be as close as the Dixie Chicks are, having a veteran like Barber back there, even as a nickle, would be a great help to our secondary.

    I’m hoping we can get an extra pick to go along with Revis to help us move up into the 1st or early second to get either Taylor or Hayden.

  5. Patrick Says:

    F*k this is actually going down. I want Revis but are we going to even have a draft left after this trade goes down?!

  6. Jrock Says:

    We’ll probably give up our 1st and a 4th, since we have (2) 4th rounders. Hopefully we get a 2nd-3rd back.

    If it happens that way, I’m happy. DO NOT overpay for this guy… he better be superman during his physical

  7. AmbushBuc Says:

    Best cb in football. Even at the cost of a 1st rounder plus a couple other 2nd/3rd round pics, it is a steal. Guy’s only 27, so he still has a good 5 or 6 seasons left.

  8. Sunny Says:

    Be calm

  9. AmbushBuc Says:

    “The Buccaneers, who will want to know as much about the knee before committing to a trade for Revis, hold the No. 13 slot in the 2013 NFL Draft and likely would have to give up that and a second-rounder. Another later pick is probable. The Jets already own the No. 9 spot.”

    So a #1, a #2 and another pick, probably one of our #4s.

  10. RastaMon Says:

    Bend over…..

  11. Illuminati Says:

    Wonder if any other players are involved in this deal (like Blount maybe)?

  12. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Anybody think we aren’t trying to win now? Isn’t that what we all want? I’m tired of waiting for next year. We are better now than when would be if we had the top 3 picks in the draft, so don’t sweat losing #13. Its a small price to pay to get better immediately. Everybody thought we were crazy to give up all we did for Gruden. How did that work out? If Revis is anywhere near his normal self, he is worth it. No question.

  13. Pete I Says:

    This better pan out. Three picks for a acl injured cb seems an awfully high price.
    Bad move I think but I guess its hope for the best.

    Hopefully the compensation is not whats being reported.

    It will be sick if a top notch player sits at 13 thursday night and the jets get him instead.

  14. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    2nd rounder makes it too high, but whatever the cost it is going to happen. Time to support the move. 🙁

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    We should of waited til the draft to see who was still available at our pick. I’m super excited we got the best CB in football. I wont go as far as to say the best defensive player in football cuz thats just silly…. But I will wait to see exactly what it was we gave up to get him… I just hope Dom didnt get bent over the table for this one.

  16. SensibleBuc Says:

    @ Hawaiian Buc

    Been waiting for urgency from the franchise for SO long. Remember when Eric would constantly harp on being a “lasting contender” and how this was ___ year of the grand plan? Well the grand plan is finally here! Outside of depth, there’s not much more these guys can do personnel-wise.

  17. SensibleBuc Says:

    @Couch Fan

    We had to get Revis in to take a look at the knee. The logistics for getting him to Tampa wouldnt work on the day of the Draft and the Jets were going to send him down until we agreed to the framework of a deal.

  18. Sethb22 Says:

    Lol… Ya’ll Mad we just got the best defensive football player in the league. Saints gave up 5 picks for Ricky Williams. That was bad. we gave up 2-1st rounders for Keyshawn( from Jets)… and won the Super Bowl! We’re giving up Xavier Rhodes and a William Gohlston types for the best defensive player in football… We got better today, Not Worst! So shut up!

    Go Bucs!

  19. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    There’s a lot of people smarter than both of us that think he is the best defender in football. Hardly anyone would say he’s not the best secondary player in football. Just be happy, we got a GREAT player. Try to at least ponder the idea of smiling.

  20. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    If we brought in Tom freaking Brady, people would still find something to b! tch about. Amazing

  21. Patrick Says:

    Seems like we won’t “have a draft” this year. LOL.

  22. Sambizle Says:

    I wouldn’t trade for him, but what can I do?

    Saying we have #1 secondary with him and our current D….Is REAL-EAL Stupid…is his knee going to hold up, can the past-injured (Bowers/Clayborn)/released (Bennett/Miller) D line get pressure without selling out the DB’s each play (AKA blitzing too much by coach little-man complex), is the brand new D going to mesh in the 1st year together? That is a CRAP load of ifs!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE THE BUCS TOO!!!! But let’s not get carried away.

  23. Couch Fan Says:


    Did I say I wasnt happy? Pretty sure I said I was excited… but to call a CB but the best player in football is a matter of opinion and I dont care how smart a person is. Regardless we both agree he’s the best CB in football.. My only concern is that we didnt give up to much for him… dont make it out as if im not happy about this sheesh.

  24. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Key word “may” have the best secondary in football. With Revis, a healthy Wright, Goldson, a more experienced Barron, and maybe even Ronde, we have the potential to be great. There are “ifs” with every team, but no way in hell we aren’t better than last year. Go ahead and look at the Jets stats with Revis and without Revis. Its mind boggling how much better they are.

  25. Biggun Says:

    Revis at 75-80% is better than most at 100%….. hope his workout is successful. Now lets get Ronde committed. Remember we lost 4 late leading games last year cause of the defense last year with those wins we coupd of made some noise in the playoffs but not with that d….

  26. Cannuckbuc Says:

    @ Hawaiian
    I like the way you think.

  27. bucsguy Says:

    I for one am stoked, this guy is a difference maker we put him on any number 1 wr and they are gine, does anyone realize how much pressure that raked off the rest of the D. Now if wright needs help we can tool towards him (with a good fs now) this gives the dline an extra tick to get there, we didn’t have a lot of sacks last year but were near the top of the league in hurries now with an improved secondary those just became sacks. This is huge for our squad and all you guys crying about the knee well sometimes you got to gamble because if he wasn’t coming off an ACL he would have cost two 1st rndrs and change. Sometimes things happen and the timing is right this is one of those times. We just became a legit well rounded team, we went from worst secondary in the league to having 2 all pros and a future star back there. Now I would love to see us grab the honey badger in the mid rounds and let him play nickel.

  28. Sambizle Says:

    No crap there are ifs on every team, but 4 players difference just on the usually (3-4 player) D-LINE, is a BIG IF.

  29. Sambizle Says:


    They had chances to get two good CB’s for half the cost of Revis months ago and didn’t pull the trigger.

    And I don’t see any crying….just stating facts ACL’s and CB’s don’t mix.

    I hope he is a shut-down guy still but that doesn’t mean our D will be top 10 anything, YOU HAVE TO DO IT ON THE FIELD/COURT AS A TEAM.

    Now I am glad they went after a big name guy but they could have spent their money on the before mentioned CB’s/signed Wright to same low contract and kept Bennet and then picked a DT @13. I would have liked that more.

    via rotoworld:

    “The New York Post reports the No. 13 overall pick in this week’s draft will be included in the Darrelle Revis-to-Tampa trade.
    Jets beat writer Brian Costello suspects the other picks in the trade — there’s believed to be two more — will fall in 2014. So the Bucs will be left with seven 2013 draft picks, beginning at No. 43. The Jets will have eight picks, including Nos. 9, 13, 39, 72, and 106 as GM John Idzik attempts to rebuild a roster that deteriorated in repulsively incredible fashion under ex-GM Mike Tannenbaum.

  31. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    I personally would rather have one great player than 2 good players, but that’s just my opinion. A great player makes everyone around them better. Every CB that lines up opposite to Deion was considerably better than what they were when they didn’t. That’s a fact. Warren Sapp made everyone on our defense better. Peyton Manning makes everyone around him better. Adrian Peterson, Ed Reed, Patrick Willis, etc. etc. How much better is it going to make V-Jax to go against Revis every day in practice? The games are going to be easy. How much better is GMC going to be when he doesn’t have to sack the QB in less than 2 seconds? No other CB we could have gotten can have that effect. Revis can truly eliminate a WR, with no help. That makes everything so much easier.

  32. Jacko101 Says:

    Here’s a question what number will he wear????

  33. Couch Fan Says:


    Thats one of the most exciting parts about this deal is watching Revis VS. V-Jax on a daily basis… training camp just got a whole lot more interesting. With this addition it’s not hard to imagine our defense being better than our offense this year. Then again thats not saying much with Free at QB.

  34. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Couch Fan,

    Yeah, the practices should be great. Those two are going to go at each other every day, and it’s going to be a great example for everyone else.

    As for Free, I hope you are wrong. I’m not too confident you are.

  35. Sambizle Says:

    HI Buc

    Only Peterson and Manning came back fom major injuries in those guys u mentioned.

  36. bucsguy Says:

    Rod Woodson went to 6 probowl after an ACL and that was a long time ago, terrel sighs and Dequan came back from achilles injuries less than a year later that used to be a career rnder this isn’t the 80s guys that put in the pt work come back look at McGhee.
