08:02 AM ET 04.01 | While NFL teams start focusing on their draft boards, a certain elephant in the room has something to do with Tampa Bay's. Its name is Darrelle Revis. Talk of a Revis trade to the Bucs has cooled to a simmer, but it will heat up again as the draft approaches, and so might the Bucs' interest in dealing their 2013 first-round pick for the Jets cornerback. The Bucs are holding on tight to that 13th overall selection, in part because it's too soon to know how this year's draft will play out -- even at the top -- and what it could bring them. And that's wise. Though most draft experts say the elite players at the positions the Bucs need to fill mostly will be gone by the time the 13th selection comes, predictions of that nature have gone awry before -- sometimes to the Bucs' benefit.

Fresh, as in from the last couple of years of World War II.

The good news is: once Revis goes to Tampa; we will never hear of him again.

The Bucs hold all of the cards...
If the Jets don't take Tampa's trade offer then they'll lose Revis without compensation of a premium draft pick, and Tampa could sign him next year without giving the Jets squat!

Bucs will mortgage the farm to get this guy. When they get honed in on somebody it doesn't matter what good sense is.
