Report: Bucs reportedly 'losing patience' with Jets
If the Jets don't make up their minds soon, the Bucs may be forced to move on from Darrelle Revis, according to the New York Post.
The tabloid newpaper reported Tuesday that Tampa Bay is "losing patience" with the Jets over their inability to hammer out a deal involving the star cornerback.
“It’s amazing. The Jets are going to screw this up,” a league source told the paper.
The Tampa Bay Times reported Monday that a Revis trade likely won't get done “for several more weeks” and the Bucs are willing to sign the three-time All-Pro corner to a long-term deal.
The article also stated Bucs general manager Mark Dominik hasn't ruled out giving up his first-round pick in this year's NFL draft (13th overall) to acquire Revis, who is currently rehabbing from ACL surgery.
“If we think it’s in the best interest of the team, we will do something,’’ Dominik told the Tampa Bay Times Monday in Phoenix, the location of the NFL owners meetings. “If that’s a player that everybody is speculating (Revis) or maybe it’s a player at a position that nobody has thought about.
“But certainly, these meetings are very healthy for those kinds of discussions to see if there is a way to get this team better and does that include players or draft picks or a combination? That’s what we’ll look at."
