It seems the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ready to move on from their very short lived but rather expensive Darrelle Revis experiment and the Cleveland Browns are looking at picking up the tab.
Revis is owed $16 million in 2014 and Tampa Bay has no interest in paying that. Cleveland, on the other hand, is desperate to get better right now and that could lead to at trade for Revis.

Tampa Bay was rumored to have ben asking for a pair of first-round picks, but they won’t be seeing that ransom paid. The Brons do happen to have a pair of 2014 first-rounders sitting around, and while they won’t trade both of them to for Revis, they may be inclined to trade the lesser of the two for him.
Moving the Colts pick they acquired for Trent Richardson in exchange for Revis could be huge for the Browns, and the deal would deb even sweeter if they haggled the price down to a more realistic price.
