Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis could be on his way out of Florida, with plenty of NFL teams lining up as potential suitors. 

There is a feeling in NFL circles that new Bucs head coach Lovie Smith's defensive style will not suit the All Pro corner, which has led to some suggestions that the expensive Revis might be let go. 

However, in the past Smith has denied this called that idea 'comical', but there does now seem to be some traction behind the story, with several teams interested. 

According to, "Members of other teams remain unconvinced that the Buccaneers' new regime values Revis as much as the previous one, which surrendered the No. 13 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft in exchange for the shutdown corner."

Revis has made a significant impact on the NFL over the years with an outstanding career at the New York Jets making him into arguably the best cornerback in the league. 

However, a serious knee injury that he suffered during his Jets career has threatened that, but the Buccaneer still managed to make Pro Bowl honors last season in his first year in Tampa.
