Bucs now balking at Jets’ price for Revis

Revis Getty Images

The Darrelle Revis dance continues.

Two days after the Jets reportedly pressed the “pause button” on talks with the Buccaneers (as some of you asked, when did the Jets ever press “play”?), the Bucs are now privately expressing reservations about the asking price for Revis.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs aren’t willing to add a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick to the 2013 first-round selection (13th overall) that would be sent to New York.

And so at a time when it appears that the Jets hope to squeeze a little extra from the Bucs, the Bucs wisely are squeezing back.

It’s clear the Jets want to trade Revis, regardless of what they have publicly said.  It’s also clear there’s no other team that wants Revis — barring an eleventh-hour change of heart from a franchise that would have already decided not to pony up the picks and the cash needed to get the deal done.

It will be the Buccaneers or no one.  Our money is on the Bucs.  The only question is whether a three and a five will accompany the first-round pick, or something else.

    Took long enough

  8. nyjets1017 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:37 PM

    So basically the jets either trade him and get something or try and sign him so he doesn’t go to a rival team?

  9. surfinbird1 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:38 PM

    Walk away!

  10. trojan33sc says: Apr 17, 2013 1:38 PM

    Why is it a surprise that the “clown car” that is the Jets front office can’t get a trade done? With Revis ACL blow out there’s no guarantee he will return 100% and have ONE team with trading interest. Get it done or shut the Hell UP !!!

  11. jimbo75025 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:40 PM

    Poor Jets, their GM should have taken his lessons from Kenny Rodgers much better. They held too long

  14. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 17, 2013 1:42 PM

    Not surprising. The price is way too high, considering they’ll be setting themselves up for a protracted negotiation drama after this season.
    I still think a first round pick in any draft is too much. Especially not know how effective he’ll be after the ACL injury.
    Way too much of a crap shoot, and too much drama for a cornerback.
    Haven’t they been paying attention? The going price has come down.

  15. arejaye57 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:45 PM

    the Jets are stuck on Revis Island. Ay-o!

  16. tampamac says: Apr 17, 2013 1:47 PM

    Mark Dominik is no dummy.

  17. PeterKingLovesCoqAVin says: Apr 17, 2013 1:50 PM

    The Jets are just completely inept. They left the Bucs’ offer on the table so long that the Bucs figured out no one else was bidding. Now the Bucs have the upper hand, and the Jets look like fools. This is exactly what you should expect from a team that could only manage to lure its sixteenth highest choice for GM.

  18. johanvil says: Apr 17, 2013 1:50 PM

    Tampa is in the best bargaining position now and I will be surprised if they don’t get it done their way.

  19. bigginfragable says: Apr 17, 2013 1:50 PM

    As a Bucs fan I am split on this.

    I don’t want to give up our 1st rd pick, but if they have to do so, then stick with a 1st and 4th. That splits the 3rd and 5th picks, and toss in Blount.

    I would love to see this happen in the first 4 rounds.

    1 – Rhodes/Lotulelei
    2 – Best CB(Banks/Wrei-Wilson/Ryan)
    3 – If Rhodes in 1st/Best DT, If Lotulelei in 1st – Best CB
    3 – trade extra 4th & 6th for Best TE – Kelce
    4 – Best DE

    But thats just me.

  20. toybkshr says: Apr 17, 2013 1:51 PM

    It seems the Buccs are now realizing the reality or the prior reporting has been false. Either way it looks like the deal might not be as one sided as been depicted.

  21. hehateme2 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:52 PM

    These “posed” pictures of Revi$ are a joke. I’ve never seen another player that had pictures taken in a studio with his full pads on.

    Typical jet.

  22. patriots420 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:52 PM

    I guess when he isn’t crying for a new contract or writing manifestos on his greatness he fancies being photographed in full pads in a studio. Pretty telling

  23. tluke25 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:52 PM

    Why are the Bucs even thinking about doing this. It’s idiotic.

    This team has a boatload of needs and giving up the 13th overall pick in the draft for a guy who has a history of injuries and is now beginning the downward slope of his career … it makes no sense!

    The Bucs need to make decisions that will strengthen their club 3-4 seasons from now, instead of draining their resources 3-4 seasons from now.

    This is why the Bucs organization is the Bucs organization.

  24. brades123 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:54 PM

    As a Jets fan, I am absolutely ecstatic. Revis will be back to his prime and shutting down #1 receivers in no time. He may play it like a business off the field, but damn is he a great corner on the field.

  25. kash71 says: Apr 17, 2013 1:57 PM

    Bucs should offer a 6 pack of diet cola and 2 packs of bubble gum for Revis.

  26. deadeye says: Apr 17, 2013 1:58 PM

    I can’t believe they offered anything for a 30 year old, large contract, malcontent coming off major knee surgery.

    If I was a GM, I’d pass on Reavis. And if the ownership was stupidly insisting we trade for him I’d offer a third rounder.

    Are u serious? You have never seen studio photos of a player in uniform? I can recall shots of my fav athletes doing this in every sport. From Kevin Garnett to Joe Mauer to Deion Sanders…
    Theres plenty to criticize Revis for other than being in player photographs… Right??!!

  28. brooks07 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:01 PM

    The Bucs should avoid the trade prior to the draft then after its done, offer them only one Number 1 for 2014 and that’s it. And tell the Jets to stick it if they want more.

  29. bucsfan90 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:02 PM

    tluke25 – who do you root for, out of curiosity?

  30. trilbilly says: Apr 17, 2013 2:03 PM

    Bucs will wait until the second round and offer a 2nd this year and a 2nd next year and that’s fair and the best the Jets can expect. If nobody else will offer a first rounder then why should the Bucs?

    They also might be able to throw in a 4th round pick this year since they have 2.

  31. jeagan1999 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:04 PM

    Mark Dominik is completely in the driver’s seat on this deal. The Bucs can get a very good CB in the draft next week, and probably pick up another in the later rounds. Revis is 27, coming off major knee surgery and wants more money than everyone else is willing to pay…including the Jets. If they don’t trade him now, he walks as a FA at the end of this season and they get nothing in return. I can’t see Schiano and Dominik offering much more than a #1 pick at this point….it’s a buyer’s market and the Jets have very little time left to decide what they want to do! Personally, I’d rather see the Bucs trade up to get Milliner or Rhodes, But for the right price, Revis is worth a shot…maybe!

  32. tommysaint1 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:04 PM

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the Saints 2nd rd. tender on Chris Ivory trade rumors.

  33. flickaboogie says: Apr 17, 2013 2:05 PM

    The Bucs should just trade up in the draft and get the best CB available.

  34. jetsclaps says: Apr 17, 2013 2:06 PM

    Well duh, if Bucs thought the price was right they would have done the trade already. This is not news.

  35. kylexitron says: Apr 17, 2013 2:07 PM

    The Bucs should not give in, it’s the Jets who really “need” this trade. They can’t afford Revis’ contract while they rebuild a team that has needs at every position, especially aver giving Sanchez way too much money to buttfumble.

  36. seaeagle707 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:08 PM

    This is high-stakes poker, gents. Deuces wild, house deals, and winner takes all. This is billionaires staring across time and space at one another, daring each other to fold. There’s still time before the bell rings, so it’ll go on as long as each player feels it has to. I’m with Mike, I think the bigger stacks of chips are in front of Tampa Bay.

  37. rpiotr01 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:11 PM

    As well they should. Considering the money they’ll have to pay or the 1-year risk they’re taking, a first round pick is PLENTY. Frankly they’ve moved enough by agreeing to give up the pick in the 2013 draft instead of 2014. Rarely can a team recoup what it spent on a draft pick by later trading the player.

    The Jets got a couple playoff runs out of Revis, they got his best years. Take the 13th overall pick and move forward, it’s one spot better than what they spent to get him in the first place.

  38. saints5683 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:11 PM

    Love how all the geniuses are advocating for them to hold out.
    Why bothering improving the worst defense in the league with a Hall of Famer.
    No problem, if the jets dont move him now, we’ll trade picks during the year to get him since theres no way they let him get all the way to free agency

    Brees and a Ryan defense with Revis, good luck to the rest of the NFL and enjoy last place Buc losers.

  39. ijahru says: Apr 17, 2013 2:11 PM

    Revis is coming off a torn acl and is demanding a large contract. He has proven in the past that he is more than willing to take his complaints to the media. The Bucs should offer only a #1 and even that I would push to next years draft. The J E T S need to move on from Revis (and Tebow) or this year will just be a media circus. They are stupid if they overplay their hand and end up with nothing.

    An ecstatic Jets fan. I cant tell if he is delusional or has just altered his expectations. (Yay Revis is healthy! Jets might not have double digit losses now!)

  41. mjkelly77 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:15 PM

    I keep saying it. He’s only worth a 7th rounder. If the Jets don’t like it, let them eat his salary.

  42. milkmandanimal says: Apr 17, 2013 2:16 PM

    Still have no idea why Tampa would make this trade rather than waiting for the Jets to cut the guy. He’s pretty clearly never playing for the Jets again, and Tampa should just sit back and wait for things to implode. When he hits the free agent market, Tampa’s one of the few teams with the cap space to sign him to a big deal.

    Trading for him makes no sense; the Jets have completely screwed themselves out of anything resembling leverage here.

    Idiots…go after Sam Shields, he’s younger and only costs a 2nd rounder.

  45. meandjuliojonesdownbytheschoolyard says: Apr 17, 2013 2:19 PM

    I’m thinking for what they’re asking we could trade up for Millner and get someone 5 years younger and at 1/3 the price. And still get another starter with the 3rd rounder we’re not losing.

  46. turdfurgerson68 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:19 PM

    The Patriots will give you the 30th pick for him if the Bucs pass on him.

    Before you scoff; remember the Patriots will gladly wait until 2014 and then sign him, i.e, the NJ Jets get nothing.

    If I hear the words “Revis” and “trade” in the same sentence again, and it’s NOT “Darrelle Revis has officially been traded to ____________,” I think I just might punch myself in the kidney. REALLY hard.

  50. fissels says: Apr 17, 2013 2:27 PM

    If they’re “privately” having reservations how does it get out? Maybe they want it out.

  51. brades123 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:30 PM

    You just don’t trade elite players like Revis, especially when their stock is low. Maybe I’m delusional that the jets would keep him long-term, but for the best cover guy in the league (which he will be when he’s fully recovered) I wouldn’t entertain the supposed #1, #3, & #5 offered.

  52. tpa43 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:32 PM

    All this talk about two of the worst teams in the NFL swapping an injured player. Who cares!

  53. touchdown83 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:39 PM

    With the implementation of a rookie wage scale, am I the only I’ve who thinks that first round picks are way more valuable than they use to be? The rookie wage scale seems to limit the risk of exposure on a first round bust, to me at least, which would seem to increase the value of the picks in that round. I think a player like Revis, at 100%, is worth a first. But, with that being said, I think the jets fail to realize this and are asking for way too much in addition to the 13th overall pick.

  54. wojlos says: Apr 17, 2013 2:39 PM

    This is ridiculous. If I were Mark Dominik, I would immediately withdraw my offer. No player is worth that much to give up, especially one who is coming off a major injury.

  55. briansav13 says: Apr 17, 2013 2:43 PM

    13th pick for a hall of famer???? And there are people on here who wouldn’t give more???? Are they joking or just hopefull bucs fans who want to steal a HOF’er????

  56. kingpel says: Apr 17, 2013 2:48 PM

  57. dynaco says: Apr 17, 2013 2:56 PM

    Hope the Jets are foolish enough to keep him this year then re sign him long term. yeah that would be foolish enough for me.

  58. RexCanCoach says: Apr 17, 2013 2:58 PM

    NY Jets > Bucs

  59. RexCanCoach says: Apr 17, 2013 3:01 PM

    Bucs front office is full of pure geniuses…how could they botch this up is beyond me.

    You KNOW that the Jets are going to walk away from Revis and take Bucs to the cleaners in the process.

    Best part is that the Jets will use #9 pick on Milliner to replace Revis. Then they will have pick #13 from Bucs plus additional 3rd and 5th round picks to for impact WR, QB, DE and RB, game set match.

  60. signaturewin says: Apr 17, 2013 3:04 PM

    I think at this point the onus is on the Jets’ to make the Revis deal a little sweeter for someone else. Demanding an extra third round pick for his headache is like a slap in the face after a kick in the groin.

  61. bookofelisha says: Apr 17, 2013 3:06 PM

    the jets of now and past 4 years have had the worst front offives in nfl history.

  64. bigjoe2269 says: Apr 17, 2013 3:17 PM

    face you buncha dopes only reason jets arent getting 2 first rounders for him is because of the injury

    foolish to keep the best defensive player in football? you are the fool here

  66. fatsolio says: Apr 17, 2013 3:23 PM

    Wow, I am amazed the Bucs front office has clued in that they have ALL the leverage since it is obvious that Revis will be a free agent after the season and there is no point in giving up a bunch of draft picks for a guy you can get in a year for much less.

  67. bklyntay says: Apr 17, 2013 3:26 PM

    I know a lot of you guys are Jet haters because of some of the silly comments that are left, but Revis had made 4 pro bowls and has been a first team all pro 3 of those trips and he is 27. He has been AFC Def player of the year his rehab has been coming along well and when healthy he is in the top 5 def players in the league and has been very good since his rookie season so he isn’t a one hit wonder. With all of this being said you think the Jets should just take whatever offer the Buc’s throw at the especially after what the Sea gave up for Harvin. Harvin isn’t a top 5 Off Player in the league let alone a top 5 wr. Tampa is not in the drivers seat because we are talking about a potential HOF’er in his prime with the ability to take away any teams best wr in a passing league, and believe this if he isn’t traded for the right price he won’t hit free agency because the Jets will resign him.

    Dear Florio Instigators:

    You know that anything “Jets” bring out the haters like it was catnip.

    Who emerges?
    Steeler fans
    Chargers fans
    Dolphin Fans
    (20 wins last season among them??)

    And then you have the cheating Pats fans who won nothing since Spygate and Mangini’s departure.

    Give it a rest, they’ll get too excited to even read their National Geographics.

  71. whatjusthapped says: Apr 17, 2013 3:54 PM

    I maintain that there is more to this deal (Sanchez or Tebow to be included in the trade) than the average fan knows.

    The Jets have something of value in Revis and are saddled with a terrible contract in Sanchez so if they can get some salary cap relief in addition to clearing out problems in their locker room, the additional draft picks aren’t even on the radar screen.

  72. vaphinfan says: Apr 17, 2013 3:57 PM

    @ Irjets

    all those teams had more wins than the jets.

  73. baddegg says: Apr 17, 2013 3:57 PM

    If the Bucs are the only ones who want Revis, why part with a first. Why not just offer a #2 and tell the Jets they can take it or go pound sand…

  74. clarencewhorley says: Apr 17, 2013 3:58 PM

    Dear Tampa, unless you are giving up a 2014 1st rounder I would not do the deal. Draft Xavier Rhodes with your pick. If the Jets was a 2014 1st for Revis (with this years 3rd and 5th) then I would do that trade so you have Revis and Rhodes.

    For everyone saying he is a HOF, yes possibly but he wants 15 million a year and has a blown up knee.

  76. clarencewhorley says: Apr 17, 2013 4:01 PM

    Also great corners are totally overrated unless they are on a great team. The Jets suck so Revis will just shut down one guy while they lose 10 games.

    Look at Deion, the Falcons sucked, he joined the 49ers (stacked with great pass rushers) and they won, went to Dallas (same thing) and they won.

    So Revis should be looking to go to Denver, SF, Seattle, GB, New England, Baltimore or Atlanta.

    He is wasted anywhere else

    Keep in mind Harvin was still on his rookie deal and could have been franchised, an option the Jets don’t have with Revis. Also, Harvin is younger, touches the ball, and plays WR/KR/RB. With that said, the Vikings had leverage. Jets, not so much. There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell Revis re-signs with them.

  81. majormeatcurtains says: Apr 17, 2013 4:38 PM

    The Bucs have pocket bullets and the dealer just flopped 2 aces and a 2. The Jets are already all-in, nothing left to bet. Outcome is sealed, Jets lose. Now it’s just a matter of time.

  82. jeagan1999 says: Apr 17, 2013 4:39 PM

    bklyntay says: “Tampa is not in the drivers seat ”

    Huh? If the Bucs don’t give in to the Jets demands to trade for Revis they can go out in 10 days and draft a couple of younger, healthier and cheaper CB’s in the draft….and then if they still want Revis, they can make him an offer next year when he is an unrestricted free agent.

    Now, let’s look at this from the Jets perspective…The owner has already said they won’t re-sign Revis to another long term contract, his current contract is up at the end of the season, he wants $14 million a year, he is 27 years old and coming off major knee surgery, and no other team besides Tampa has shown any interest in giving the Jets anything for him or offering Revis anywhere near what he wants in salary.

    So, which team is in the driver’s seat here? I’ll give you a hint…it’s not the J.E.T.S!!

    Revis would murder our cap. Besides, we have last year’s best Corner already, plus Browner, with Lane and Maxwell for backup. We need Revis, like Seattle needs more rain.

    Dominik never should have gotten involved in the deal. Its a loss from day one.

    But then again this the Bucs. Their history is not too swift.

    I imagine the Jets calling Rick Spielman right now and ask him what are they doing wrong.

    Grag Schiano: “In fact, we’re going to be calling in Vincent Jackson and a few others and asking them to take the NFL minimum so we can pay Revis $79 million per season. Hey, that is the market, and we’re here to win.”

    Regret.

    Realizing Green is the Bay you were looking for.

    These “posed” pictures of Revi$ are a joke. I’ve never seen another player that had pictures taken in a studio with his full pads on.

    Typical jet.

    Great minds think alike. Posted the same minute as mine
