According to Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are growing impatient over the negotiations regarding Darrelle Revis. This isn't the first time we've heard that story. However, Cole had this to say:
The Buccaneers are not only willing to trade a combination of a first-, third- and sixth-round picks for Revis, they are also willing to pay the corner in the area of $15-16 million per year on a long-term contract.
It's not clear, but presumably these are all 2014 picks that Cole is referring to, as they've said before they don't want to give up the 2013 first. I suspect that GM John Idzik is holding out for an additional high pick next year. If the Buccaneers decide to split the third and sixth into a fourth or fifth and throw in a second next year, that may be enough to tip the balance. The trick is to avoid waiting too long before the Buccaneers simply move on.
Would you be willing to accept a 2013 first, third, and sixth round picks for Revis? If not, would you be willing to pay Revis in the $15-16 million range?
