Last week we reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the front-runners and close to acquiring star cornerback Darrelle Revis from the Jets.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that feelings are starting to change now, and reports suggest that the Buccaneers are cooling on Revis, and losing interest in a possible trade.
The biggest takeaway from our first full day at the league meetings in Phoenix is that, with the Jets and Buccaneers taking strong opposing positions as to the trade value of one of the best defensive players in football, the Buccaneers are close to moving on. The belief is that the Jets want a package headlined by a first-round pick, and that the Buccaneers are willing to part with, at most, a 2014 first-round selection.
Reports now indicate that the Bucs are ready to turn their interest to Falcons free agent Brent Grimes, and if they are able to land the rugged corner, they would no longer have any interest in Revis.
All indication are that the Jets are fixated on receiving a deal similar to the one the Vikings got for Percy Harvin, which included a 2013 first round pick.
