Tampa Bay looking to trade CB Darrelle Revis


Tampa Bay looking to trade CB Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis @Revis24 is apparently too expensive for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While Revis had a great 2013, if he were on the roster after Tuesday at 4:00 pm, the Bucs would owe him a 1.5 million dollar roster bonus and a fourth round pick owed the Jets, would become a third round pick.

Fantasy Analysis:

When new head coach Lovie Smith took over earlier this year, it looked like a perfect match for Revis. Revis, however, is the highest paid corner in the league by a wide margin and the contract belongs to the previous regime in Tampa, not GM Jason Licht or Smith. Revis' would account for a 16 million dollar cap hit this year.

Revis' deal may make a trade difficult, while there will be teams interested, not that many can afford him at his current rate. ESPN reports that if a trading partner isn't found Revis will be released.
