AFC East: Adam Schefter
April, 18, 2013
The New York Jets are on the clock with star cornerback Darrelle Revis.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter explains why the Jets are under pressure with the NFL draft just one week away. New York has been in trade talks involving Revis and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but those talks have slowed this week.
According to Schefter, it's still a 60 percent chance a trade happens between New York and Tampa Bay. This is the last week New York can get draft picks for 2013 by trading Revis. Any potential trade after next week would involve draft picks for next year.

The Miami Dolphins appear just a day away from landing their most coveted free agent. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the "league-wide expectation" is that Miami will sign former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Mike Wallace when free agency begins on Tuesday.
Miami has been the favorite to land Wallace all along. The Dolphins have the cap room and are in desperate need for a No. 1 receiver and a deep threat. Wallace fills those roles.
Most expect Wallace's contract to be in the range of $11-$12 million per season. That’s a lot of coin, but it’s also the price of doing business with quality wide receivers. Dwayne Bowe recently signed a five-year, $56 million contract to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs. That is the bar Miami and Wallace are currently working with.
Is Wallace a lock for Miami? You can never be 100 percent sure with free agency until pen hits the paper. However, Miami signing the top receiver on the open market appears to be one of the safer bets this offseason.
