Cleveland Browns keen on Darelle Revis trade

Published Add your comment

As NFL teams begin to target out of contract players on the first day of free agency, there is still one player under contract that is attracting attention.

Darrelle Revis is still contracted to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but the team are not keen on paying Revis the $16 million salary that he is due this season.

Both the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders have been linked to the defensive back this offseason but if the Bucs are to release Revis it would seem unlikely that he would choose a struggling franchise over a contender like the New England Patriots.

Because of this it would seem likely that the Browns will want to aggressively pursue Revis while he is still under contract.

If the Browns are successful in luring Revis to Cleveland, the player will link up with his former defensive co-ordinator from his days with the New York Jets, Mike Pettine who is now the Browns head coach.

Revis recorded 19 interceptions during his six years with the Jets but only managed two with Tampa Bay last season.

It is unclear at this stage what the Cleveland Browns would have to give up to secure Revis' services and whether the Browns front office believe it would represent a good investment.
