Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rumors: Darrelle Revis Back on Trade Block
The times are changing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After a couple of disappointing seasons under Greg Schiano, the franchise has decided to go in a different direction. Jason Licht was hired as the team’s new GM and Lovie Smith was hired as the team’s new head coach. But with the changes, come new questions. A big one that’s on everyone’s mind — will Darrelle Revis still be a Buc in 2014?
With Smith running the old school ‘Tampa 2′ defensive scheme, many have questioned how good of a fit Revis will be for the Bucs moving forward. Smith has reassured fans that the talented CB definitely has a place in Tampa, but not everybody is buying it. In fact, NFL personality Jason La Canfora is reporting that many teams feel it’s only a matter of time before serious Revis-trade talks get underway.
As of now, La Canfora is reporting that there are no ‘firm’ offers on the table for Revis, but the feeling is that will change as the start of the new season approaches (March 11th).
Even though Revis is still arguably the best corner in football, you just can’t dismiss the idea of him being traded. The guy flat out makes a ton of money. Revis earns $13 million per season in base salary and another $3 million in bonuses. Smith and Licht could easily take that money and acquire a couple players that better fit the new defensive system.
Above all else, fans have to remember that the current regime didn’t acquire Revis. That always plays a role in whether a player stays or not. But for now, we’ll just have to wait and see what offers get thrown the Bucs way. It will surely take a good one for Tampa to relocate Revis Island for the second straight year.
