Default Darrelle Revis worth first-round pick to Bucs

A source "close to the negotiations" between the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tells King that the Bucs likely would be willing to give their first-and second-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft for Revis. The Jets are expected to get no less than first- and third-round picks in a possible deal, according to King.

The holdup, apparently, concerns what year the draft picks come in. King reports the Jets want the Bucs' first-round pick this year, which is No. 13 overall. The Bucs apparently are pushing for next year's first-round pick, knowing the Jets have no other serious suitors.

"Tampa Bay is the only serious bidder for Revis," King wrote. "The ball is in the Jets' court on what to do next. And the Bucs aren't going to go much further, if at all, to try to get Revis."

The Jets should be thrilled they have a taker. They only have Revis for one more season. The only scenario in which this falls apart is if the Bucs got so tired of the Jets' trade stance that they move on and sign Brent Grimes in free agency. That seems unlikely at this point.

Both King and the New York Daily News indicate that the Bucs are willing to pay Revis big money. They are willing to give up valuable picks. They clearly want Revis. It shouldn't be that hard to settle on what the picks are before the NFL draft.

Even the Jets couldn't screw this up.
Walk away now! Just walk away please... You're giving up too much for a player who isn't going to perform the way you think he should... Get out now!

A 1st and a 2nd for a player that is past his prime and has had a knee injury. His position is predicated on speed... Stupid stupid stupid.
