Is A Revis Trade Imminent?

How long are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers willing to wait?

J. Meric

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:

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:

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.
