Schiano on Revis: Anything is possible
By Rich Cimini
The Bucs introduced former 49ers S Dashon Goldson on Wednesday at a news conference, but the elephant in the room was Darrelle Revis. The Jets are shopping Revis, and the Bucs are known to be interested, so ...
"We're trying to get better," said Bucs coach Greg Schiano, "and anybody that can help us do that, they're definitely on our radar."
"Everything's a possibility, but we're not allowed to talk about players under contract with other teams," Bucs coach Greg Schiano told the NFL Network.
Schiano also had this to say: "We’re trying to get better and anybody that can help us do that, they’re definitely on our radar."
Obviously, Schiano had to play it straight, lest he be accused of tampering -- or hurting the Bucs' negotiating position.
So where do things stand? The Jets and Bucs have engaged in talks, as ESPNNewYork.com reported Tuesday night, but no trade appears imminent. Basically, it's a staredown. The first soft deadline occurs Saturday. If Revis is on the Jets' roster, he's owed a $1 million roster bonus -- probably not a large enough amount to spur the Jets into a sense of urgency.
Meanwhile, Revis took a break from rehabbing his knee injury in Arizona. He's on a vacation in Paris, accompanied by his business manager, John Geiger, who tweeted a photo. By the way, Revis is pictured wearing a Falcons hat.
That'll probably end up in the headlines somewhere.
