Jones: Rex the underdog?
A source "close to the negotiations" between the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tells King that the Bucs likely would be willing to give their first- and second-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft for Revis. The Jets are expected to get no less than first- and third-round picks in a possible deal, according to King.
"Tampa Bay is the only serious bidder for Revis," King wrote. "The ball is in the Jets' court on what to do next. And the Bucs aren't going to go much further, if at all, to try to get Revis."
Both King and the New York Daily News indicate that the Bucs are willing to pay Revis big money. They are willing to give up valuable picks. They clearly want Revis. It shouldn't be that hard to settle on what the picks are before the NFL draft.
