Darrelle Revis-to-Bucs buzz building again



Darrelle Revis, the NFL’s best cover man, could be on the move soon. And if you believe the buzz building in league circles, the Jets superstar’s potential destination is Tampa Bay.

Multiple reports indicate Revis, who has been at odds with the Jets over his contract, could be traded to the Bucs as the Jets attempt to seize on a rare opportunity to trade a player with significant baggage (coming off knee surgery) and incredible salary demands.

Complicating matters for the Bucs: The clock is ticking. It’s now after 4 p.m., and the league is open for business and signings. If the Bucs wait around trying to strike a potential deal with New York but ultimately pass, the price they pay could be missing out on the top cornerbacks on the market.

The likes of Sean Smith, Brent Grimes and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could sign quickly, putting the pressure on the Bucs to make an expedited decision on Revis.

It’s a fluid situation, so stay tuned.
