01:54 PM ET 04.06 | New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is "not optimistic" about the chances of a trade to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Tampa Bay was considered the leading candidate with enough ammunition to land Revis this offseason. At this point, it's clear that Revis isn't necessarily unhappy being with the Jets, but that they aren't able to get him signed to the contract that he wants. He can opt out of his contract after the 2013 season and hit free agency, which is why the Jets have been interested in trading him. But the interested teams have been few and far between. This offseason saw a relatively strong free agent class when it comes to the cornerback position, and many potential suitors for a Revis trade have since looked elsewhere.
