There are two teams interested in trading for Darrelle Revis.
According to reports from the New York Daily News, Adam Schefter, and Albert Breer, the New York Jets have two teams interested in Darrelle Revis - the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams are looking to move relatively quickly:
Folks who know Idzik believe he'll be measured and won't rush into dealing Revis. Revis' camp is more motivated to push this to conclusion.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 6, 2013
Talking to 3 execs in last 12 hours, market for Revis seems to be a first-rounder, plus another high pick, perhaps a conditional '14 pick.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 6, 2013
Take this for what you will. Both the 49ers and the Falcons have legitimate needs at cornerback. The 49ers' secondary was abused in the Super Bowl, and the Falcons have cut Dunta Robinson, and Brent Grimes is coming off an injury. The 49ers will have up to fifteen draft picks (including compensatory picks) and the Falcons are no stranger to big trades (see: Jones, Julio) and have approximately $24 million in cap space.
What do you think? If the Jets get a first-rounder and a conditional second that could turn into a first depending on Revis' health, would you be able to accept that trade? With any luck, Idzik will be ale to turn this into a bidding war and get an additional late pick or two thrown in as well.
Edit: Fixed the Falcons' cap number.
