Revis Island is likely in the market for a new zip code.

Multiple reports say that cornerback Darrelle Revis is on the trading block with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and if the Bucs cannot move him by 4pm E/T on Tuesday, the team will release the five-time pro bowler.

Revis signed a six-year deal with $96 million last spring, but none of the money was guaranteed.

Revis currently counts for $16 million against the salary cap for Tampa Bay next season, but if he's released before 4pm on Tuesday the Buccaneers are clear of that money.

Tampa Bay would like to get something in return for Revis, who made the pro bowl last season, but the size of his salary makes any trade difficult for any team to want to absorb, especially with the forecast being that Revis will be released if no trade is completed.

The Buccaneers acquired Revis in a trade with the New York Jets in April of 2013.
