Trade: Darrelle Revis, CB, New York Jets

The Buccaneers were able to pull off a trade before the 2013 Draft for New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis for a first round pick in 2013 and a conditional pick in 2014. This has the potential to be a move that swings the pendulum in the Bucs’ favor in the NFC South. Revis is coming off of a serious knee injury, but he finally got his huge pay day with Tampa Bay, and he is finally out of New York like he wanted. Revis–when healthy–is one of the top two or three corners in the league (if not THE best), and one of the best defenders in all of football. He takes away an entire side of the football field, and is an elite tackler for his position. This is a huge move for Tampa Bay’s playoff hopes, adding an elite player at their greatest position of need this offseason. I loved what the Bucs did last year in getting Vincent Jackson, a big time playmaker for their offense. This year, I love them attacking the secondary, snatching Dashon Goldson away from the Niners to pair with Mark Barron and getting Revis to be their shut-down cornerback.
