Darrelle Revis to the San Francisco 49ers?
Could Revis Island be moving to the west coast to join forces with the San Francisco 49ers? Darelle Revis is still the top cornerback in the league and a change of scenery could be just what the shutdown corner needs to revitalize his career.
Revis wandered aimlessly into oblivion while playing for the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past season, and the coming season proves to be more of the same when new Bucs head coach Lovie Smith implements his patented zone defense that will under utilize one of the key cogs on defense. Revis has stated in the past that he is a proponent of man-to-man defense, as it gives him a greater chance to be a difference maker in the game.
All players want to be on a Super Bowl contending team, and as the San Francisco looks to shore up its secondary, the team should look at Revis as a viable option. The 49ers’ weakness came in the secondary last season, where injuries plagued what was once one of the greatest units in the game. A major shakeup could come in the offseason for the 49ers, where safety Donte Whitner and cornerback Tarell Brown are scheduled for unrestricted free agency. In addition, cornerback Carlos Rogers is likely to be on his way out with a price tag of $6.6 million. The overhaul this offseason will leave uncertainty in the secondary along with young playmakers Tramaine Brock and Eric Reid.
With all the uncertainty, the 49ers must look to make a move to acquire a veteran cornerback with unlimited potential. In order to get such potential, the 49ers should use one of their 11 stockpiled draft picks to use as leverage to acquire a great talent. The Bucs are looking to get younger and that sets up a perfect opportunity to make a deal that benefits both teams in different ways.
The 49ers have been sitting on the precipice of greatness for a few years now, but this move would put the team over the top and on track to win a Super Bowl in the near future.
