Darrelle Revis trade grades: show us yours!

Give us your grade on the Darrelle Revis trade.


Darrelle Revis is a Buccaneer. Who could have thought that would ever happen just a few months ago? And now he is -- for the low, low price of two draft picks. Giving up a first- and third-round pick for Revis doesn't seem like much to me, and the contract is favorable as well. While the Buccaneers are giving Revis $16 million per season, there's no guaranteed money -- which means they are protected from a decline in skills, any injury and other concerns. Revis gets paid while the Bucs get a lot of protection.

If I have to give the Buccaneers a grade, I give them an A. They gave up two picks for the best cornerback in the NFL, in his prime. They acquired a player who can transform their defense, and they did so with minimal risk. If that isn't good, I don't know what is.

But tell us -- what grade do you give the Bucs? Did they give up too much in draft picks, or money? Do you think they could have squeezed the Jets a little more? Vote and let us know in the comments!
