Problem with that theory is the Bucs already leaked to the public that they are shopping him.
That article is ridiculous. Does Pat think the fanbase is idiotic?They'll lose credibility if they overpay, not if they walk away from a bad deal.

The prolonged dance with the Jets does nothing but make the situation seem more desperate.....do you honestly believe a GM wants to go into a critical season having NOT addressed the CB position after such terrible showing in 2012? That would be the equivalent of career suicide....even an idiot could see that. hehe
Quite simply, the Buccaneers have set themselves up for (perceived) failure if they don’t trade for Revis.
I get it that Dominik is playing the waiting game because he doesn’t want to give up too much of his team’s present or future as compensation. That’s smart and the prudent thing to do.
That’s why the Buccaneers need to go ahead and make the Revis trade. If they don’t, they’re going to look really bad to their fans, who have been waiting for this deal for weeks....If the Buccaneers somehow don’t pull off a deal that has looked like a sure thing for a long time, they’re going to have a lot of explaining to do to a fan base that doesn’t want to hear anything but that Revis is coming to Tampa Bay.
Why would they wait till pick 13 to announce the trade? Doesn't make sense. If the trade is going to be done on draft day, it will be done before the draft starts.
The only way I can see a draft day trade working out... is if the jets agree to draft a player that would be agreeable to both teams in case the trade gets voided. Bucs get the darfted player if Revis fails the physical.
