Report: Darrelle Revis Is Expected to Be Traded to Buccaneers for Two High-Round Picks by NFL Draft

Darrelle RevisIt’s appearing more and more likely that the Patriots will only have to face Darrelle Revis once this year.

The Jets cornerback is expected to be traded to the Buccaneers for two “high draft choices,” according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated. New England plays the Bucs at Tampa Bay next season.

The Jets owe Revis $6 million in 2013. Trading Revis won’t save them any money on the cap for next season, but the¬†lock-down¬†corner is on the last year of his deal, and the Jets would be letting him go for nothing if they can’t pull off a trade. New York is unlikely to contend for a playoff spot this season anyway.

The Buccaneers are low on cornerbacks after trading Aqib Talib last season and losing E.J. Biggers to the Redskins in free agency. They’re attempting to trade 2012 starter Eric Wright, though it’s more likely they’ll have to release him and his $7.5 million salary.
