The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hedging on dealing the 13th overall to land New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, according to a Yahoo! Sports report, though the team may be angling to pay a first-rounder in 2014. Sources told Yahoo! that new Jets general manager John Idzik is willing to hold onto one of his star players until the April draft or longer, despite the fact that Revis will earn a $1 million roster bonus if he's still with the team on Saturday. "One million is a pittance in the big picture when you're talking about a player of Revis' stature and the compensation he could bring," a league source told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday. "Don't be foolish with something like that." The Buccaneers, who signed safety Dashon Goldson on Wednesday, have long been regarded as the favorites to land Revis.
