Yes that’s right. The ongoing back and forth reports of the Jets trading Darrelle Revis to the Bucs will go on until the trade happens or not. And this write up is no different because there is a rebuttal to rebuttal.
CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora, as of 2:56pm, writes the following:
Despite statements to the contrary by the Jets, trading star cornerback Darrelle Revis remains a priority for them and a deal with the Buccaneers is not dead, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
The desire to do a deal from both sides is there, and though they have yet to agree on a trade those talks could easily be stoked at the owners meetings in Arizona next week.
There you go. LaCanfora’s “sources” are basically saying do not believe the article from the New York Posts and its sources (aka the Jets) on the deal being dead. He also notes in his article that the money for a new Revis deal is not the hold-up.
This is going to be a matter of who caves in first. Right now, it appears Bucs general manager Mark Dominik is in fact not giving in.
