Darrelle Revis Still Numberless

May 2nd, 2013

darrelle revis 0501

OK, Joe is at One Buc Palace right now for both the Warren Sapp Show, and in a little bit, Joe will get to talk to some of the new draft picks as the rookies ready themselves for rookie minicamp which begins Friday.

So Joe spoke with Bucs officials in the know and the page where jerseys are on sale with a Darrelle Revis No. 24 and a Mark Barron No. 23 is absolutely and totally unofficial. A suit Joe spoke with has no idea why or how those numbers were picked as no decisions have been made.

If Revis was to get No. 24, per NFL protocol, he would have to purchase the number from Barron as Barron has seniority.

The same front office official Joe spoke with said the team would like to find out what Revis’ number will be tomorrow, but that date is more a goal than a deadline.

    If I were Barron I’d charge Revis 1/4 of an game salary for the number…. lol

  2. Stevek Says:

    I like the 24-42 combo.

  3. HOLA Says:

    Reebok had a rule that if a player wanted to change his number he had to buy all the jerseys with the number he wanted to leave behind from reebok (adrian peterson wanted to change his number and they were charging him 1 million dollars).. don’t know if that applies now with nike

    Just heard Dominik on NFL radio with Tim and Pat a sec ago and he said its official, Revis #24 Barron #23

  5. Andrew 2 Says:


    Its been official…people lying to you while Dominiks on the radio.

    If you think the guy who made the jerseys on the website was a genie, I assure you he was not. Your source is flat out not telling you the truth or not in the know.

  6. @MikeInTampa2 Says:

    Mark D. confirmed it 30 minutes on NFL Radio…..Revis Manager confirmed it this morning

  7. the_buc_realist Says:

    he should have had a jersey that had # 16,000,000.00

    that would have been too funny!

  8. Patrick Says:

    Revis deserves #24, the proven star should get the number he wants.

  9. PRBucFan Says:

    I hope they do the 24, 25 move.

    Having the consecutive numbers like that for a backfield tandem would be neat.

  10. MegaDaveUK Says:

    I hope Barron keeps #24 – this is not your team Darrelle

  11. MegaDaveUK Says:

    Previous comment was mistake.

    I hope barron keeps 24, he had it in Tampa first and Revis has joined and should accept whatever number he is offered

  12. PRBucFan Says:

    Baron should have Revis sign a contract saying he won’t hold out in exchange for his number 😉 lol

  13. PRBucFan Says:

    24 is part of “Revis Island” it’s just how it is.. Lol

    Concede Barron!!!

  14. walkergodeep Says:

    Barron should get 42

  15. Dickard90 Says:

    @Andrew 2, that picture is photoshopped and has been out since the day Revis was traded. Nothing is official until its official.

  16. scubog Says:

    Other than Training Camp, no one has worn # 42 since Ricky Bell. Notice no one has worn # 47 either. I suspect Barron will have no problem conceding the # 24 to his senior teammate……….perhaps with a little cash incentive.
