REPORT: Buccaneers Talking Revis Trade With Raiders, Browns (UPDATE!)

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are discussing a possible trade of pro bowl corner back Darrelle Revis with both the Oakland Raiders and the Cleveland Browns.

Why would Cleveland make sense as a destination for Revis?  Revis, 28, played for Browns coach Mike Pettine for four seasons when Pettine was defensive coordinator of the Jets.  Revis made three of his five Pro Bowls when Pettine was his defensive coordinator.

The Raiders on the other hand will have the most cap space to handle the 16 million dollar per year contract of Revis. 

The Bucs are trying to trade Revis or restructure his contract. If they can't do either, they're likely to cut Revis by Wednesday at 4 p.m., when he's due a $1.5 million roster bonus.

 

 

UPDATE (4:48pm): Pro Football Talk is now reporting that the Oakland Raiders have pulled out of the Darrelle Revis sweepstakes.
