Darrelle Revis trade rumors: Eagles join pursuit of star cornerback

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in trade talks with the New York Jets concerning cornerback Darrelle Revis. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, they aren't the only team: the Philadelphia Eagles are also trying to swing a trade for the veteran cornerback. As we all know, competition for a player drives up his price, and that's likely what we're seeing here.

We will likely see a Revis trade consummated before tomorrow at this pace. Once free agency starts, the Buccaneers are likely to look at free agent cornerbacks if they have not secured Revis' services. They will have to move fast if they are to find quality starting cornerbacks, which means the pressure is high for the Jets to secure a trade quickly - and equally so for the Buccaneers if they don't want to be left out in the cold.

Whether the Buccaneers do trade for Revis will likely depend on the price in draft picks they have to pay. Stay tuned for any news.
