Darrelle Revis Trade Rumors: Eagles, Bucs, 49ers, Falcons, and Lions in the Mix

[Edit by John B, 03/12/13 4:02 PM EDT ] Jason Cole now says you can add the 49ers, Falcons, and Lions into the discussions as well. That's good news If you're going to make a trade, it's best to have as many suitors as possible involved.

Jason LaCanfora says the Philadelphia Eagles have joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a potential trade partner for the Jets regarding Darrelle Revis.

The Jets would like to make the deal as soon as possible, though Revis' recovery from ACL surgery complicates things. Jets owner Woody Johnson is highly motivated to make the deal, as we first reported weeks ago, but sources involved in the discussions have said teams have been hesitant to part with a bevy of picks only to then have to step up and give Revis a deal making him one of the highest paid players in the game.

In order to get maximum value, the Jets need two teams to bid against each other so this is a good sign as far as what the Jets could get in return goes.

The next step will be Revis getting to speak with these teams about a new contract. It could be that the Jets are waiting to have a satisfactory deal in place before letting Revis speak with another team. Otherwise Revis would be in the driver's seat. He could pick one team and force the Jets to deal him there, killing all leverage the team has in a trade. If the deal is in place, Revis would have less control of the situation. The Jets could still get a satisfactory package with both teams and allow Revis to choose where he goes.

The good news is these are both NFC teams, which would mean the Jets would only see him once every four years as an opponent.
