The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Are Funny, And Not In A Good Way

By Vincent Frank

According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were really asking for two first-round picks in exchange for Darrelle Revis before they were literally laughed at by front offices around the league. Revis is still a top-three cornerback in the NFL, but… 

With a $17 million price tag and on the wrong side of 30, there is no legitimate way that Tampa Bay was going to even sniff a first-round pick for his services. Here is Freeman’s original report…

The most Tampa can expect to get for his services, and this is a tad unlikely, is a second-round pick. Dude to Revis’ cap hit, the Buccaneers are looking more at a pick in the mid rounds. The fact that it was laughed at when discussing compensation for Revis doesn’t bode well for the fledgling franchise.
