Report: Raiders among teams interested in Darrelle Revis


Just Blog Baby will be covering every minute of the 2014 NFL Free Agency frenzy this March. Check in daily for breaking news, analysis and predictions from the talented JBB team and new staff writers.

Elite cornerbacks are coming off the market left and right as Sam Shields resigned with the Packers over the weekend and the Raiders are looking like they won’t be active in the Alterraun Verner sweepstakes. However early in the morning leading up to the official start to NFL free agency it looks like Reggie McKenzie will be one of the GM’s kicking the tire on the new hottest name in the free agency pool.

With the Raiders potentially losing the services of Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston this afternoon Bleacher Report is reporting that Oakland will be in the race to land potential free agent Darrelle Revis if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers choose to release or trade him.

 

This is an interesting development, but if the Raiders don’t land Revis in a trade and give up assets it is unlikely they will add the talented veteran cornerback on the open market. Revis is already making $16 million and if he is going to be released and take a pay cut he is going to want to land on a winner, something that McKenzie cannot offer. Look for a potential switch of first round picks between the Raiders and the Bucs if the Raiders do somehow win the Revis lottery.

UPDATE: NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Browns are pursuing Revis through a trade on the NFL Network.

    Oh and I suppose Champ Bailey is in the mix too. Nevermind that we need a new offensive line or pass rushers. I thought we had good cornerbacks already. (sarcasm) Isn’t that why we drafted DJ Hayden and resigned Taiwan Jones? What about our other cornerback from Denver we still have? I am awestruck in the process they’ve got going on in that front office. The game Stratego is not used for real world events in the theater of battle.
