According to a report by Bleacher Report senior NFL columnist Mike Freeman, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in search for two first round picks in a trade with corner back Darrelle Revis.

Several reports surfaced on Monday night that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were attempting to move the pro bowl corner back if they couldn't come to agreement on a restructured contract. Sources tell WDAE's Tom Krasniqi the Bucs will release corner back Darrelle Revis on Wednesday if they can't trade him by then. If Revis is still on the team's roster on the third day of the new league year, the Bucs will have to pay Revis a $1.5 million roster bonus and they would have to surrender a 3rd round pick to the Jets in this year's draft as opposed to a 4th rounder. The new league year begins Tuesday afternoon at 4pm, which is the start of the free agent signing period.
