The New York Jets want to trade cornerback Darrelle Revis this year. However, they don't seem to really want to trade Darrelle Revis. Or, at least, they don't want to do it badly enough to accept just the thirteenth overall draft pick in exchange for their All Pro defender. According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, multiple sources have confirmed that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to send their first round pick to the Jets, but now New York is asking for "a lot more."
The Jets and Buccaneers have had the slowest trade negotiations ever this offseason as they circle around each other, neither wanting to be fleeced in the deal. The talks between the two sides have been going on for so long, Jake Long's physical with the St. Louis Rams is starting to look like a rushed, haphazard medical exam.
Maybe Jets want similar to what #Vikings got for Harvin: A 1st, a 7th & then a mid-rounder in 2014. But two sides closer than ever to a deal— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 8, 2013
The Buccaneers still have to give Revis a physical and workout a long term deal with him. Revis missed the second half of the season last year after tearing his ACL in the team's second matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
Whatever the deal is, the teams have a little over two weeks to complete it. At the rate it's been going, that's about how much time the sides will take to get it done.
