Wednesday/Thursday AM is my guess.
I don't know if you guys realize it but this move (trade or no trade) is HUGE in terms of the direction this team takes in the foreseeable future.......It's getting close to crunch time so in the words of Terrell Owens, get your popcorn!

Sorry IF the deal gets done, and that's a big IF, it will need to be done by Monday at the latest.

Sorry IF the deal gets done, and that's a big IF, it will need to be done by Monday at the latest.You're assuming that the Jets have not allowed the Bucs to examine Revis's knee and/or talk to his agent. Can anyone say with absolute certainty that this hasn't happened already. The Jets can play hardball with the compensation all they want, but they also know they get nothing if Revis fails the physical after a trade. I think that all this has been done already, and everyone involved is under a strict gag order.One other thing that could be holding up a deal is if the Bucs are trying to trade down in the first. If I were the Bucs I would tell the Jets that we don't think he's worth the #13 in his condition, so we'll try to trade down and pick up an extra 2nd or 3rd, then give you the lower 1st and a 2nd next year. If there's no takers for the trade, you'll get the combination of 2nd's and mid round picks already discussed...take it or leave it. I also wouldn't be shocked if they already had a team lined up for that trade. That would explain the need for complete silence, so the third team doesn't get scared off. If Dom were able to pull this off and get Revis, trade back up into the 1st round (we know he likes those guaranteed 5 yr contracts), and still have extra 2nd or 3rd round pick this year he'd be a rockstar.
The credibility of a lot of writers is gonna go down the drain if this trade doesn't happen.

Most sports writers lost all of their cred with me over the whole Manti debacle and excuse parade that followed.
We'll never see any footage unless he takes his shirt off.
Quote from: zsmith22 on April 18, 2013, 08:21:02 PMIf we don't get a deal done for revis, our secondary wont improve from what It was last year. I'm hoping for a deal in the next few daysEven without Revis I think our pass defense will be decently better than last year. We now have a top 2 free safety to go with a very young and very talented SS that is one year better in this system. Add that to Eric Wright how was brought here because coach likes his skill set in his system and he will be injury free and playing for his career. Our 2 youngest and most promising corners Johnson and Gaitor are also one year better in this system and Gaitor played pretty good at end of year after coming back from his injury. I'm sure we will add at least one corner between rounds 1 and 3 so add him to the mix as well. Nothing helps a secondary more than a good pass rush and a healthy Clayborn and Bowers will be worth more than what Bennett gave us last year so factor that in as well. I see our pass D being good enough to hit into the 20-24 range up from 32 all without Revis and that with a top 5 rush defense could get this team into playoffs for sure. No need to trade our future for one guy, just steal him in FA next year.
