Jets pausing Darrelle Revis trade talks with Bucs
The New York Jets are pausing the Darrelle Revis talks, according to a report from ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. It seems that the Jets are trying to squeeze more out of the Bucs, the only team pursuing Revis.
Per Peter King, the Bucs are offering first-, third- and fifth-round picks for Revis. Despite a perceived tension between the two teams over whether the first round pick would come in the 2013 or 2014 draft, the Bucs were willing to give up the first-rounder this year, the 13th overall selection.
It’s unlikely that the Jets will be keeping Revis; instead, Jets GM John Idzik is probably pushing the Bucs to see how much he can get for Revis.
The cornerback underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL back in October, and is scheduled to have an MRI some time on Monday. The results of the MRI could affect the way trade talks play out.
