NFL Trade Rumors: Jets May Trade Darrelle Revis to Buccaneers Tonight


 

Update 6:15 PM

As the NFL Free agency period opened today, the biggest name to move could be New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who is rumored to be close to being shipped to the Tmapa Bay Buccaneers. Now, Kimberley Jones just reported on the NFL Network that she believes Darrelle Revis trade is “imminent”

 

 

UPDATE 9:00 PM

The New York Post is reporting that a trade involving Darrelle Revis could come as soon as today:

 

Although Revis’ health complicates matters – he’s less than five months removed from ACL surgery – the best window to deal him is during free agency, which starts Tuesday at 4 p.m., before the already-select market for Revis dries up.

“I think (the Jets are) going to move Revis,” a source familiar with the situation told the News on Tuesday. “Bet it. If he isn’t traded by tomorrow, (general manager John) Idzik is an idiot. One buyer might dry out. He has to move him. The risk of keeping him kills the franchise for five years and Idzik is gone.”

 

The New York Jets may be close to reaching a resolution with embattled cornerback Darrelle Revis soon. Pro Football Talk is now reporting that a deal could be coming very soon to help Revis escape New York:

A league source tells PFT that the Jets have an offer on the table for Revis. Per the source, the offer is a “good” one, both as to the compensation given to the team and the financial package that would be extended to Revis.

Another source tells PFT that, if such an offer has been made, the financial component has yet to be shared with the Revis camp. To date, the Jets and Revis have had no talks, and the Jets have not given Revis’s agents permission to talk to other teams regarding a new contract.
