Darrelle Revis rumors: Jets cornerback not optimistic a deal gets done

Rich Schultz

Darrelle Revis is still out there as a New York Jet, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would really like to change that soon. Ian Rapoport has heard that Revis isn't optimistic a deal gets done, though.

Of course, there's one small point here: Revis doesn't really have a say on whether this deal actually gets done. So his optimism or pessimism isn't really relevant, while Jets GM John Idzik's state of mind is. The question is simply whether the Bucs and Jets can come to terms on compensation they both find acceptable. The Bucs have reportedly offered next year's first-rounder and this year's second-rounder, and one would think that would get the deal done. So far, it isn't good enough -- but there's still plenty of time to get a deal done.

Given all the facts, I still think a deal is inevitable. We will likely see it happen right before the next real deadline: the draft. Yes, that's three more weeks of getting really really annoyed at rumors like this. Enjoy!
