Before Richard Sherman had his break out season in 2013, Darrelle Revis was considered by far the best cornerback in the league. However, according to reports it appears that Revis could be on his way out of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that several teams have contacted the Bucs regarding the availability of the cornerback.

La Canfora tweeted: "Teams calling the Bucs to inquire about Darrelle Revis, and some rival execs believe he is ripe to be dealt at start of league year ..."

Incoming Bucs head coach, Lovie Smith had previously said that he had 'big plans' for Revis. 

Revis had just two interceptions last year for Tampa Bay after recording 19 picks in six years for the New York Jets.

The cornerback is under contract with the Bucs until 2019 and is scheduled to receive $13 million next season.

The Bucs finished last season with a 4-12 record and would probably need wholesale changes in the roster to contend for the playoffs next year.

It will be interesting to see what sort of offers, if any, are made by teams for the highly talented defensive back.
