Because of a contract stipulation, the Jets cannot franchise him past the 2013 season, and there has been no indication that Jets owner Woody Johnson wants to pay Revis anywhere close to his asking price of $15 million per year. First-year New York general manager John Idzik canít risk losing Revis after the 2013 season and getting only a compensatory pick in 2014 in return. Thatís a fireable offense for losing a Pro Bowler that is considered to be the NFL's top cornerback.

2. The Jets canít afford to have the Revis situation become a distraction this offseason. Between Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez, the Jets already have enough distractions for the New York media to write about. The fact that head coach Rex Ryan is on the hot seat this year is a clear indication that the Jets need to become a focused team in 2013.

These are reasons why he's available, not why the Bucs NEED to trade for him. If anything they're reasons why the Bucs DON'T need to give up premium picks for him. If the Bucs are indeed the only team interested in him then his REAL value is only our 4th round pick, which is the equivalent to the 2014 3rd round compensation pick they would get. The fact that he's UFA in 11 months is a weapon the Bucs have to use in all this.

How are they getting a 2014 3rd round comp pick?
The earliest they might get a comp pick is 2015, if they get anything at all.
The Jets can't count on getting anything at all for Revis unless they already know they won't be using the new cap space in 2014 to sign any FAs.
I would think the most they can hope for will be a 2015 5th round comp pick unless they take whatever deal we deem worthwhile.
The only factor that plays against us in terms of picks would be offering something so insultingly low that another team with cap room jumps in just because they can.
In reality the only thing we are bidding against is the compensation tipping point where another team becomes willing to make a deal.
This is perception vs reality for the Jets, the perception is that Revis is talented enough to get them multiple high picks, reality is he really isn't worth more than a 4th rounder if they have to get rid, Idjit is trying to find a safe middle ground where he gets picks while not getting ripped apart by their fan base/media for "giving Revis away"

    There could easily be another team waiting in the weeds to trump our offer. The state of Ohio is loaded with cap space, for instance... And there are others with cap space too...

That is the only real issue, our offer only has to be good enough that it scares off the Browns & Bengals if they were thinking about it.
Comp picks play no part in this, if the Jets have to get rid want really isn't a factor, it's what they can get while not taking a big hit in public relations.
If Johnson really has told Idjit that he must deal Revis and we are the one and only team ready, willing & able to make a trade then it's a case of "here's our offer, you don't like it go talk to... Oh wait, there isn't anyone else, good luck with the 2015 comp pick if you are awarded one."
There is not one reason we should be offering any pick higher than a 3rd IMO.
