Report: San Francisco 49ers Not Interested in Darrelle Revis

Yesterday the San Francisco 49ers made waves when they agreed to trade quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a second round pick in 2013 and a conditional third round pick in 2014. Almost immediately after the trade was announced, rumors began swirling about the possibility of the 49ers putting together a package that would land them cornerback Darrelle Revis.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported via Adam Schefter on Thursday that while it’s a cute idea, don’t count on the 49ers trading for Revis anytime soon.

The Jets reportedly shopped Revis at the NFL Combine this past weekend and apparently found no suitors that knocked their socks off with a deal. It’s not a secret that New York would love to divorce themselves from Revis’ contract in 2013 as they could really use the cap space to upgrade in other areas. There’s also the fact that after 2013, it’s almost a virtual certainty that Revis Island will relocate to a more competitive market and his price tag will likely be outside of the Jets comfort zone.

So all the Revis-to-49ers trade talk that was whipped up yesterday made sense, but it turns out it was all just a fantasy — at least for now. Let us not forget that earlier in the week it was reported that the 49ers had a trade all lined up to deal Alex Smith to an unnamed team before it was later reported that no such deal had been made, and look how that turned out.
