Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Alex Marvez of Fox Sports has the news and he says Tampa Bay is "really trying hard to trade Darrelle Revis. Hoping to strike a deal pretty quickly." Well, it should be super easy now that everyone knows.


Florio mentioned earlier this month that both the Broncos and Patriots were rumored to be interested in getting their hands on Revis and now that the Bucs appear to be very motivated sellers, it could be very easy. His contract is unwieldy so, even though there's always a way to fit a good player under the cap, a deal may be tough to come by. At this point, a trade seems unlikely. Revis is due a $1.5 million roster bonus on Thursday. Adam Schefter says, barring a trade, Revis will be released Wednesday by 4:00 p.m.

Revis makes sense for both Denver and New England—good teams that will compete right now for a Super Bowl, but not much longer—but Revis makes sense for a lot of teams. He's a good player; you never know who might bust through the door trying to get him.
