It’s no secret that the New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis wants out — the only secret as of late is where he will end up. Well, Rotoworld reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have sweetened their offer for the coveted defensive back by being willing to offer up their first round pick (No. 13) in the upcoming NFL Draft.
At this point, the Jets would be foolish not to accept, providing that this offer indeed is laid out on the table. They know Revis does not want to play in New York any longer, and he is probably tired of all the drama and media circus that the Jets have brought upon the city. Revis wants to go somewhere where he will be appreciated.
Look no further than Tampa Bay. With Revis, the Buccaneers would easily have the best secondary in all of pro football. Already adding ex-San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldsen to the mix along with second-year pro safety Mark Barron, the Bucs would be downright scary back there.
Offenses will have to worry about being laid out across the middle by two of the hardest-hitting safeties in the NFL. Not only that, but good luck getting any production out of your wide receiver going up against arguably the league’s best cornerback in Revis.
If the offer surfaces anytime soon, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jets accept, as it is probably as good as it’s going to get for them. Take the first rounder and say goodbye to a headache while the Bucs say hello to a frightening possibility next season.
