Will the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Regret Trading For Darrelle Revis?
Over the last couple of weeks, there’s been plenty of talk about the possibility of the New York Jets trading Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now that the deal is official pending a physical–it’s difficult not to wonder if the Bucs made the right move on this one.
Over the years, Revis has proven to be one of the league’s top cornerbacks when healthy, but there may be a reason for concern heading into the 2013 season. Not only is Revis coming off a serious injury that kept him out for just about all of the 2012 season, but he’s clearly not the same effective cornerback from a couple of years ago.
In other words–the last thing the Buccaneers want is to bring a player on board with a career on the decline.
There’s no question Tampa Bay’s passing defense needed to be addressed after ranking near the bottom of the league last year and the Buccaneers hope the addition of Revis will fix that in 2013. Of course, nothing is guaranteed when it comes to these types of situations and it would be a shame to see Tampa Bay’s first-round pick from this year go to waste.
This year’s draft class is filled with plenty of talented cornerbacks the Buccaneers could have chosen from and while they will most likely address the issue in the later rounds as well–let’s just hope for their sake this Revis deal pays off for them.
