NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport reported last night that New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is not optimistic that he will be traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prior to the 2013 NFL Draft. If that ends up being the case, don’t expect to see Revis traded until closer to the start of the 2013 season, or perhaps even during the season in order to give teams a look at Revis and if he’s fully recovered from last season’s torn ACL.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that free agent middle linebacker Brian Urlacher is only considering playing for a contender, and that he’s talking with a few teams, all of which are believed to be capable of making the postseason.

Atlanta Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff isn’t ruling out a reunion with free agent defensive end John Abraham, even though they cut him this offseason after they determined he wasn’t worthy of his $7 million cap umber this year.

After failing to trade disgruntled middle linebacker Rolando McClain, the Oakland Raiders decided to finally release the former 8th-overall pick of the 201 NFL Draft.
