Are Jets asking too much for Revis?
By Pat Yasinskas
The day wouldn’t be complete without some sort of rumbling on the possible trade by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets.
The latest comes from Rick Stroud, who reports the Jets’ asking price might be more than the Bucs are willing to give up. Reportedly, the Jets want Tampa Bay’s first-round pick (No. 13 overall) this year as well as picks in the third and fifth rounds (although it’s not clear if the later picks would be in the 2013 or 2014 draft).
I wouldn’t take this as a sign that the Bucs won’t be making a deal for Revis. I think the Bucs are just being wise and trying to get the best deal they possibly can. That’s called good negotiating.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this situation drags into draft day.
