According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, “two or three ‘legitimate buyers'” are ready to make a deal to acquire cornerback Darrelle Revis from the Jets.
The 49ers and Falcons are two of the teams that are interested in trading for Revis, per Mehta.
The NFC champion 49ers, who will have 12 tradeable picks in next month’s draft and a glaring need for a top cornerback, are interested in trading for Revis sooner rather than later, according to sources. The Falcons, who lost to the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, are also considered a team that could emerge as a player in the Revis sweepstakes.
One source told Mehta that Revis is done with the Jets.
“He’s gone,” a source familiar with the situation said Tuesday. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”
