In regards to a Darrelle Revis trade, there was little noise, if any, coming out of the league meetings in Arizona this week. Tampa Bay, the only team that seems to be interested in selling the farm to acquire Revis, is reportedly growing frustrated with the Jets reluctance to pull the trigger. The Jets, meanwhile, continue to be patient. According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Peter King, though, the Buccaneers have upped the ante to include both their first and second-round picks in 2014 and to also pay Revis roughly $15 million per season in an extension. This, despite not knowing if the corner is fully healthy. The report says that the sticking point remains Tampa Bay's first-round pick in 2013, which the Jets apparently covet. This would give them the No. 9 and No. 13 overall picks next month. King added that nothing got done in Arizona to move negotiations forward. For the moment, the Jets don't seem to be jumping at the offer. New GM John Idzik is in a difficult situation. It is highly unlikely he can re-sign Revis, especially with the promise of an open market waiting for him in 2014. At best, Revis has one more season in New York. However, Idzik's job is to get the best possible deal for Revis while he still can. As of now, he apparently thinks that is a first-round pick in 2013 as well as a pick in next year's draft.
