The Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to be done with their expensive and short-lived Darrelle Revis experiment and are looking to trade or cut him by Wednesday. Free agency opens on Tuesday afternoon and many believe a Revis decision could come by then, as Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports that Alterraun Verner is on the Bucs radar and will be so even more if Revis is moved.
What I didn’t mention: Some execs believe Alterraun Verner would be the best fit if Revis is cut or traded. Verner is best in cover-2.

Verner is the top cornerback on the market and is already drawing interest from teams like the Vikings, Giants and others. Tampa Bay gave up a first-round pick last year (one that turned out to be cornerback Dee Milliner) so moving Revis is a big decision.
But replacing him with Verner will help make the decision easier and will go a long way in keeping the fan base happy.
