I got to talking to Scott Salmon over at Gang Green Nation, our New York Jets site, and it took us all of five minutes to strike a deal for Darrelle Revis. Yes, we're that good. Please make us NFL general managers now. Or just give us their salaries. I could do that, too. Here's what we agreed to, all of it pending a physical, of course.
Get the best cornerback in the NFL: Darrelle Revis.
Get the Buccaneers' 2013 third-round draft pick.
Get the Buccaneers' 2014 first-round draft pick.
Get Legarrette Blount.
Because Darrelle Revis is better than any two players you're going to get for those picks. Because I believe Revis is a shutdown cornerback who can transform the Buccaneers' defense. Because the Bucs can handle his massive salary. Because I think this compensation leaves the Bucs' with plenty of draft picks over the next two years.
What do you think? Would you accept this deal?
