The rumors surrounding Darrelle Revis continue to swirl. Oh offseason, how I lo(v/ath)e thee. Pro Football Talk wrote a neat little story citing speculation in league circles that the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos could be after Darrelle Revis (h/t Gil Arcia). Because teams love adding $16 million cap hits to their roster.

Trading for Darrelle Revis would be completely out of character for the New England Patriots, who tend to shy away from big contracts and big trades. Theirs is the way of finding small additions and players, and even the stars they try to add come cheap because of their own flaws, such as Randy Moss and Aqib Talib. Darrelle Revis would surely help the Patriots, but trading away picks and acquiring a massive contract is simply not something they ever do.

As for the Denver Broncos, they may make more sense. They have a terrific offense, despite that weird Super Bowl display, but their defense has struggled, especially in coverage. Revis would help that defense (he'd help any defense), but at $19.4 million in cap space they don't exactly have a lot of room to add players like Revis.

However, yesterday's news of a massive increase to the salary cap not just this year, but the coming few years makes trading Revis a lot less attractive for the Buccaneers. Revis would be a terrific asset for Lovie Smith's defense, even if he's unlikely to design said defense around the star cornerback. The idea that he can't play under Smith is complete nonsense, and trading him would leave the Bucs with a hole at cornerback they'd need to fill. With the added cap space, the $16 million in cap relief from trading Revis would be less beneficial, too.


The soft deadline for any Revis trade would be March 13, when the Buccaneers are set to pay Revis a $1.5 million roster bonus and set to send their third-round pick to the New York Jets. If a trade occurs before that date, the Bucs would send the Jets a fourth-rounder instead.

Can't trade him to Cleveland for their first pick either. It's just not right to do that to...anyone really.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Wouldn't that blow a hole in the "great teams don't need a 16 million dollar corner to win" argument?

Interesting prospect. Deal him to St. Louis for both of there 1st round selections, 2nd and 13th.

A move that would actually make sense. Actually even they just gave us a 1 and 2 it probably helps both teams.

I feel like the only way we'd make a trade is if we picked up a solid starter (like Sam Shields? though he was just above average last year) in Free Agency to pair with Banks and another FA/or Rookie CB. If not, I doubt we make a trade and leave Banks as our only CB

Given the depth of talent in this draft I would agree.

I'd be ok with this trade back at 12 and draft justin Gilbert out of ok st. That's the only way I'd trade revis
