According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the New York Jets have finally found a serious trade partner for cornerback Darrelle Revis. That partner is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Florio says the biggest hurdle they have to overcome and putting something together that the Jets, Bucs and Revis are happy with.
The challenge becomes doing a deal that works for everyone involved — the teams and the player. Some, including former Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum, believe that Revis should bring in the same haul that the Vikings got for receiver Percy Harvin. But there are major differences between the deals.
At the end of the day, it comes down to how badly the Bucs wants Revis and how much the Jets are willing to compromise to unload him.
