NFL Rumors: Buccaneers stepping up efforts to trade CB Darrelle Revis

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports 1, and his source, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are stepping up efforts to trade cornerback Darrelle Revis. It is kind of shocking that they’re looking to trade him after his brief tenure in Florida.



CBS’ Jason La Canfora provided more details:

At this stage no one is making offers, and the Bucs haven’t contacted other teams about the Pro Bowl player, and are not shopping him, but talks could certainly progress as we approach the start of the league year next month. Revis makes $16 million this season and counts $16M against the cap (that holds true for every season through 2018), and Tampa has several other tricky contracts to sort through, particularly along the offensive line with an aging and highly paid group, many of whom are nearing the ends of their contracts.
