Eagles, Buccaneers in pursuit of Jets' Darrelle Revis

Several teams are pursuing cornerback Darrelle Revis, including the Eagles and Buccaneers, according to league sources.

The Jets would like to make the deal as soon as possible, though Revis' recovery from ACL surgery complicates things. Jets owner Woody Johnson is highly motivated to make the deal, as we first reported weeks ago, but sources involved in the discussions have said teams have been hesitant to part with a bevy of picks only to then have to step up and give Revis a deal making him one of the highest-paid players in the game.

Revis has one year worth $6 million left on his contract and the Bucs and Eagles have ample cap space. The Eagles created more cap space, releasing Nnamdi Asomugha, who was set to make $15 million. The Bucs could create more room as well, by releasing corner Eric Wright, who's set to make $8 million this season.

Both Tampa Bay and Philadelphia are willing to be aggressive to make moves and have long discussed this move internally, sources said. other teams have expressed interest as well.
