It widely has been believed that the lingering impasse between the Jets and the Buccaneers over cornerback Darrelle Revis arises from the Tampa’s refusal to give up a 2013 first-round pick for Revis.
There’s a problem with that widespread belief. It’s not correct.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation tell PFT that the Buccaneers are willing to send the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft to the Jets for Revis. The Jets, however, want “a lot more” than this year’s first-round pick.
It’s unclear what else the Jets want. Last month, the Vikings got a first-round pick in 2013, a seventh-round pick in 2013, and a third-round pick in 2014 for receiver Percy Harvin. It’s possible the Jets want that, or something close to it.
We’ll have more regarding the Revis situation, including full analysis of the odd stare down between Revis and the Jets over his involvement in offseason workouts on Monday’s Pro Football Talk, which gets rolling at 5:00 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
That would be a tease. It was suggested by Ross Tucker. Who will be on the show. And who will be happy to see his name in print. Or whatever it’s called when your name shows up on a website.
