Darrelle Revis trade rumors: Jets reportedly want 3 picks from Buccaneers

New York is looking to restock its team if it deals Revis to Tampa Bay.


The New York Jets are seeking a trio of draft picks in compensation for cornerback Darrelle Revis, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

New York has been shopping Revis throughout the offseason, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers being the most avid pursuer. King believes the Jets are discussing trading Revis for a first-round pick along with third- and fifth-round selections, but is unsure whether they are for this or next year's draft.

Revis, a former first-round pick out of Pittsburgh in 2007, only played in two games last year before tearing his ACL and being lost for the remainder of the regular season. That was the first serious injury sustained by the All-Pro during his six-year career.

Should Tampa Bay acquire Revis, it would have a promising secondary with safety Mark Barron and corner Eric Wright already in tow, accompanied by veteran cornerback Ronde Barber.
