According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers believe the Jets’ asking price for Darrelle Revis is currently too high.
The Bucs front office and coach Greg Schiano are in agreement that the Jets’ price is currently too high for Revis, especially due to the lack of suitors and the fact he is coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL. While Revis was cleared to begin running without restriction following an examination of his knee in New York Monday, it is not a trade that can be made on the clock. The Bucs would want several days to have Revis’ injury evaluated. In addition to the draft picks, the Bucs must be prepared to pay Revis about $15-million per year.
I believe the Bucs have a good reason to feel like the Jets are asking for too much for Revis. The fact of the matter is that if Revis never tore his ACL last season, other teams might be lining up to trade for for him If that were the case, the Jets would be able to get what they’re looking for in exchange for Revis.
