The new Bucs regime agreed to terms with former Tennessee Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner on a four-year, $26.5 million contract with $14 million in guarantees, a source tells NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
With Verner in tow, Revis is expected to be released by 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Verner will take over as the top cornerback in Lovie Smith's defense, which is better suited to his skills than a heavy press-man scheme.
Give new general Jason Licht credit. By adding Verner and pass rushers Michael Johnson and Clinton McDonald to a nucleus that includes at least four players with Pro Bowl talent, he's quietly building a defense with the potential to keep up with the NFC superpowers.
