Odds Darrelle Revis Will Call These NFL Teams Home in 2013

1 of 11

    Where will Darrelle Revis be playing in 2013? 

    A few days ago, the only legitimate answer was with the New York Jets but, according to CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora, Gang Green's owner, Woody Johnson is "exploring the idea of trading" the lockdown cornerback. 

    Therefore, with Revis trade rumors starting heat up, here's a percentage breakdown of the potential destinations for No. 24. 

Cleveland Browns

2 of 11

    Why: Joe Haden and Darrelle Revis? A cornerback tandem for the ages. The Browns certainly have the money (more than $48 million in cap room), according to ESPN's John Clayton. With Revis, Cleveland would be well on its way to fielding an elite defense.

    Why not: Trading for a veteran with an injury and holdout past doesn't exactly align with what rebuilding teams typically do. Also, rebuilding clubs love those draft picks. 

    Odds: 3 percent 

Buffalo Bills

3 of 11

    Why: Mike Pettine, the Jets defensive coordinator from 2009-2012, is now the defensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. After a lackluster season from it secondary, Buffalo could use another talented cornerback.

    Why not: Stephon Gilmore has ideal press-man abilities, so Pettine will likely plug him in as the "Revis" in his attacking defense in 2013 and beyond. Do the Jets and Bills trade often? Eh, no. 

    Odds: 3 percent

New Orleans Saints

4 of 11

    Why: The New Orleans Saints secondary was downright atrocious in 2012. Drew Brees can't be relied upon to totally carry the team every season.

    Why not: There are no impending free agents in the secondary (guys who get playing time, anyway), New Orleans is nearly $15 million over the cap and they don't have an abundance of draft picks. 

    Odds: 3 percent

Detroit Lions

5 of 11

    Why: Frankly, the Detroit Lions secondary hasn't been good for quites some time. Chris Houston, Jacob Lacey and Drayton Florence are all free agents

    Why not: Are they ready to trade a high draft pick for a player with Revis' holdout history? The Lions are projected to be slightly over the cap. 

    Odds: 3 percent

New York Giants

6 of 11

    Why: After encouraging play early in Corey Webster's career led to a monster contract extension, he drastically underwhelmed in 2012. He is set to make $7 million in base salary next season, the last year of his deal with the G-Men. The Giants play Dez Bryant, DeSean Jackson, and Robert Griffin III's offense ever season.

    Why not: Jerry Reese is one of the most calculated and intelligent general managers in football, and a blockbuster trade to land Darrelle Revis doesn't seem like a move Reese would legitimately consider. There's probably too much risk.

    Odds: 3 percent. 

Indianapolis Colts

7 of 11

    Why: The Indianapolis Colts were held back by their offense line and secondary in what was a magical 2012 campaign. Darius Butler and Jerraud Powers are impending free agents and Vontae Davis is still having trouble living up to expectations with the inherent talent he possesses. 

    Why not: He's eccentric and quite unpredictable, but it seems far-fetched that Jim Irsay would swing another deal for a cornerback

    Odds: 5 percent

Oakland Raiders

8 of 11

    Why: The Oakland Raiders have been mired in mediocrity since their Super Bowl appearance in 2003. However, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie did help to make the decision in Green Bay to sign Charles Woodson in 2006 and knows the potential benefits that can come from adding a veteran stalwart to the secondary. 

    Why not: They have a shortage of draft picks thanks to the Carson Palmer trade and are projected to be over the cap by nearly $5 million.

    Odds: 5 percent

Washington Redskins

9 of 11

    Why: When it comes to offseason moves, never, ever rule out the Washington Redskins from making a huge splash. While many of their free-agency decisions have flamed out, owner Daniel Snyder has made it rather clear that he's willing to do whatever it takes to field a winner. Cedric Griffin is set to hit the market, and Josh Wilson will be a free agent after the 2013 season. 

    Why not: DeAngelo Hall is locked up through the 2015 campaign and is set to make $7.5 million in base salary this year. 

    Odds: 7 percent

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

10 of 11

    Why: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had arguably the worst secondary in football in 2012. They allowed the most passing yards per game (297), and opposing quarterbacks averaged a 93.5 QB rating against them during the regular season. 

    E.J. Biggers is a free agent, as is soon-to-be 38-year-old Ronde Barber. Eric Wright was a relative disappointment across from Biggers, According to ESPN's John Clayton, the Buccaneers have more than $30 million in cap room, but would they be willing to part with draft picks? 

    Why not: 2012 rookie Leonard Johnson has considerable upside, and the Bucs went on a spending spree last season in free agency. 

    Odds: 8 percent

New York Jets

11 of 11

    Why: Darrelle Revis is the best player on the Jets. Usually, teams don't trade their best player. Just a reminder. The impact he makes when he's on the field outweighs everything else. He's the most vital piece to Rex Ryan's attacking defense. 

    Why not: He will be coming off a knee ligament injury in 2013 and hasn't been timid about holding out. 

    Odds: 60 percent
