NFL Trade Rumors: Oakland Raiders no longer pursuing Darrelle Revis


After apparently getting on board the Darrelle Revis rumor train, the Raiders have pulled the string and kindly asked to get off. According to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk, the Oakland Raiders are no longer pursuing a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that would see them acquire All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis.

 

There’s varying accounts of the Raiders actual interest in Revis but there seems to be a definitive stance now. The Cleveland Browns remain interested in trading for Revis and they seemed to be the better fit from the start.

Cleveland has the cap space to add Revis at $16 million per season, but he’ll likely re-do his deal to get out of Tampa Bay. Revis rejected the idea of taking a pay cut with the Bucs but he could be open to doing so in a trade.

No matter what he does, he’ll be of little concern to the Raiders unless he ends up on there schedule for 2014.

    Dennis Allen: So Reggie what’s the plan?

    Reggie: s]well I don’t want any of Al Davis’s competent players on this team. So I’m going to let Veldheer walk unless he takes my low ball contract and we are going to get my guy. He’s a guard but I think he can play left tackle and deserves Left Tackle money. I’m also going to keep a running that cant play more than 7 games but we don’t need a running back for the whole season do we?

    Dennis: Yeah sounds good how about defense?

    Reggie: Well this is what I will do. Houston is gone we don’t need a DE. we are going to go with a new hybrid defense no DE”S and no DT’s instead we are going to field 1 safety and 1 Cornerback and 3 linebackers. The opposing teams will be so confused they wont know what hit them

    Dennis: ……..

    Reggie: Dennis where can I get this 60 million dollars converted to gold dollars I want to go swimming in my vault

    Well after hearing we lost Veldheer, Houston,Jennings, picked up guard to play tackle for top dollar who is injury prone, and resign McFragile; hearing we aren’t going to pay Reavis 16 million a years is GOOD NEWS! Unless some magic happens this off season “The Plan” isn’t to be successful.
