Sigh. The Darrelle Revis speculation between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Jets continues on. Every day, a new "development." Today, Stephen Holder of the Tampa Bay Times had this to say:
Side note on #Bucs and CBs: Whether true or not, multiple agents saying team is waiting on Revis deal before proceeding w other CBs.— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) March 26, 2013
So, the Buccaneers are holding off until they resolve the Revis situation. Assuming this is true, the Buccaneers must be looking to resolve this quickly. The longer they wait, the more cornerbacks fall off the market. Holder followed that tweet up with this one:
@w9dvm Actually, I'm not confused at all. It's simple: Bucs want Revis -- bad. End of story. Doesn't mean it will happen, but that's a fact— Stephen Holder (@HolderStephen) March 26, 2013
It's now on GM John Idzik to find the sweet spot on how long to keep them waiting. Wait too long, and the Buccaneers will be forced to find alternative options, thus ruining the market. Trade too quickly, and you won't maximize what they're willing to pay. Find the sweet spot, and you can milk it for all it's worth.
