Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the discussions between the Jets and Bucs have included the possibility of the Buccaneers assuming the contract of quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Any trade of Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay must include no less than the Bucs’ first-round pick in the NFL draft April 25, the team’s front office has been informed.
The trade has to happen,” said another league source who has been privy to the information exchanged between the teams. “The question is when. The Jets know they can’t sign him, and Idzik knows if he doesn’t sign him he’s got to get the best deal he can.
Everything’s a possibility.
This morning, the Daily News is reporting that sources tell them that there are a few teams who might attempt a trade for Darrelle Revis’s services.
Despite the damage control talk from Idzik and Rex Ryan in Indy about how much they value Revis, the source told the Daily News on Tuesday that Idzik was “actively” shopping Revis at the combine, and interested teams are now doing their homework on what it would take to get Revis signed to a new contract if they can satisfy the Jets with compensation.
