Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; I think that this trade/signing was as much of a publicity stunt as anything else for TB. Their fan base is abysmal, and I think that it could help them sell a few tickets to have one of the league's ...

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

I think that this trade/signing was as much of a publicity stunt as anything else for TB. Their fan base is abysmal, and I think that it could help them sell a few tickets to have one of the league's "superstars" on the field. They had the cap space & only have up an arm and a finger instead of an arm and a leg. They still have around $8.5M in cap space. It'll be ok for them. The better question for TB is do they have a "big time" QB that can get it done against the division's other "big time" QBs? That's to be determined.

That just helps TB stop Brees on one reciever, he is not the answer TB, sorry.

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

Revis may not be the answer for the Buccaneers, but if he is 100% after the ACL injury it's a step in the right direction.

And the Bucs have him signed to a very friendly no-guaranteed money contract, so should it not work out they can cut him without penalty...

I would never ever ever ever pay a corner back 16 million a season. Ever.

Still, $16M/yr for a DB is way too much money even if one has the cap space for such a move.
Seems like the Clements and Asomghoua deals would have made this point clear to teams. Deion Sanders is the last CB I have seen that would actually be worth this much due to his skill. Teams don't win Superbowls because of the cornerbacks. We did it with guys signed off of the street.

+1. This trade would make more sense to me if it had been the 49ers/Broncos who are a player or two away from winning a SB but not the Bucs. They have a plethora of needs & holes to fill but the cornerback play is only one of many.

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

No
Never

Pick one:

Why spend 16M for one side of the field, when you could cover both sides with equal talent for the same 16M.

You don't pay 16M to someone that doesn't touch the ball.

Pass rushers are more important than CBs.

I'm not going to get into the Ditka of the rest of what they gave up.

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

16ml is the guts of 2 good CB and a safety.Revis is a major talent,but if the have front loaded the deal he will be after a restructure before it ends.

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

After listening to Nick Cattles in the Virginia Beach area it didn't seem all that bad.

1. If you believe he was better than any body they possibly could have gotten in the 1st round it was a good move.
2. If you can afford him and still have money room it was a good move.
3. They can walk away 1-2 years from now with zero guaranteed money.. it was a good deal
4. Revis was brought in because 6 games in thier pass happy divison will help.

Not saying I would have wanted to do this but I don't think TB got the bad of a deal

1-4 Revis can not eff3ect 6 games when we are burning the other side of the field.
2-3 They Ditka'd away draft picks... That has nothing to do with Cap, money, and you cant get them back if you walk away from him in 1-2 years.

Signs of desperation, however just like Atlanta and Houston... You can bring in anything you want, with out the Coach your not winning any more games or going any further in the playoffs.
