12:40 PM ET 04.09 | The Jets and Buccaneers are discussing trade possibilities involving cornerback Darrelle Revis, and New York is asking for Tampa Bay's 2013 first-round draft pick. That pick is the 13th overall and would give the Jets two selections in the first round when paired with their No. 9 slot. Tampa Bay has a "self-imposed" deadline because of Revis' ACL injury. Any trade would be followed by an extensive physical, cutting it close to the first day of the draft on April 25. New York also has incentive to get a deal done quickly. Revis will get a $3 million bonus for showing up to offseason workouts with the team. That's good for Tampa Bay, who could use all the leverage it can get at this point. Revis is a four-time Pro-Bowler and three-time All-Pro. He missed nearly all of the 2012 season after suffering an ACL injury in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.

Quite a big order considering the man is coming off of acl surgery.

Yeah, but they'll settle for half a bottle of Jagermeister.

Good luck with that. There's a big difference between what they want for the guy and what they will have to accept.

I don't see any team giving the Jets a 1st rounder for Revis until it's proven that he isn't damaged goods. And, that just might not happen before the draft.

Nope... no team will do that. No team with a GM that values his reputation, anyway.

Looks like your stuck with him, J-E-T-S fans.

But they'll take a sixth round pick if you take Revis and Tebow.
