What Would Be a Fair Offer from Tampa Bay for Darrelle Revis?

We got such great responses from you guys for the previous article via Twitter, that I have decided to make it a weekly column, starting this week. It will be called “Tweet-Speak”, as shown in the graphic above. Each week, we are going to put a topic on Twitter, you guys and gals send us the Tweets, and we make it into an article….”Tweet-Speak”. Hope you enjoy.

Darrelle Revis is still firmly entrenched in the daily discussions of the New York Jets. Will he stay? Is he going to be traded? Where is he going to be traded? It’s talked about a lot in the media, and debated with merit amongst Jets fans.

Recently, we have heard that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have stepped forward as a favorite to acquire the services of Darrelle Revis from the Jets. Some reports say it’s “imminent”, some say they are working out the details, but the Bucs have been a constant theme of late as a team that is in the serious running.

So I took to Twitter and asked you fans, what trade offer would you feel comfortable with from the Bucs, to trade the services of Revis? Here are some of your responses, you will see there are very similar requests in a lot of the answers…here we go:



It is hard to disagree with any of these thoughts. It would certainly take a creative trade involving multiple draft picks, some could be conditional, to make it happen.


I wanted to include RonDog because he had an interesting idea. He was the only one that responded, that wanted to include Mark in the deal, and the Bucs paying some of the freight. I don’t know how realistic that is, but it is certainly something to think about.



If you didn’t include a real trade offer, I didn’t include your entry as I wanted to keep it to serious football talk. I found it interesting to read everyone, with their draft pick packages, and being remarkably similar. The bottom line I get, is that you guys are OK with the move, if the price is right.

We will do this again next week, when “Tweet-Speak” returns.

    Too many corners in the draft and in free agency, but more importantly, everyone is scared by Revis’s contract demands and constant holdouts.

    The Jets will be lucky to get much more than a first round pick + a mid round pick.

    • TheJetPress

      very true Ed. His holdouts are going to drive any team nuts, I don’t disagree at all.

      Thanks for reading

  • Korwil

    I suspect 2 picks. 2014 first rd. and 2013 3rd rd.

    We might get a third pick but I imagine it will be a 6th or 7th.
