The most serious suitor to land Darrelle Revis may be willing to part with its most valuable draft choice.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t ruled out giving up the 13th overall pick in next month’s draft to trade for the Jets’ All-Pro cornerback, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.
“If we think it’s in the best interest of the team, we will do something,” Bucs general manager Mark Dominik told the paper from the league meetings on Monday. “If that’s a player that everybody is speculating or maybe it’s a player at a position that nobody has thought about. But certainly, these meetings are very healthy for those kinds of discussions to see if there is a way to get this team better and does that include players or draft picks or a combination? That’s what we’ll look at.”
On Sunday, Woody Johnson admitted that the Jets “would be open to a conversation” to make a trade involving any player if it improved the team. Although Johnson said that the Jets are “not actively out there beating the bushes” to move Revis, it’s clear that the team is poised to trade him at the right price.
