XXVIII-III Posted March 12, 2014 Share Posted March 12, 2014 He was wearing a Falcons hat in that one pic, lol!Darrelle Revis' stay on the trade block should prove to be uneventful.NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday night it's now considered unlikely that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback will be moved in a trade.The Browns and Oakland Raiders surfaced as two possible suitors Tuesday, with Cleveland looming as a legitimate option. The Patriots also called and expressed interest, per Rapoport. But Revis' camp would rather the cornerback hit the open market than accept a pay cut, and other teams are prepared to wait.Revis also "loves" Rex Ryan, Rapoport reported, per a person close to Revis, and is open to a Jets return. Rapoport later noted the Giants, Falcons and Eagles were teams that have inquired about RevisRevis should hit the open market Wednesday. The conditional fourth-round draft pick acquired by the Jets in last year's Revis trade will become a third-rounder if Revis is on the Bucs' roster by the third day of the league year. That means Revis has to be off Tampa's books by 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.Revis is well known, infamous even, for his acute awareness and aggressive handling of personal business matters. Taking a pay cut and not having control of where he'll play cannot be an appetizing thought for the star.Revis will still end up taking a pay cut, simply because it's hard to imagine another team paying $16 million annually for a cornerback. But he gains a modicum of control by refusing to play ball with the Bucs.http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000333208/article/darrelle-revis-unlikely-to-be-traded-by-buccaneers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
