Great news Panthers fans! The bucs just signed a premier player!
So you'd be happy if the Panthers gave all that up to get him, and signed him to an enormous contract?

Yes, considering we have done much worse. Much much worse.
So, how do you think Schiano will utilize Revis? Will he use him as a lockdown corner on other teams' #1 receivers, or will he attempt to use him to cover more ground and take away half the field by using a hybrid zone? What will they do to counteract bunch formations on Revis' side of the field, particularly when teams run him toward crossing routes in an attempt shed him off his receiver? How do they compensate for the poor coverage skills of Goldson and Wright? Will the Bucs lack of pass rushers force Revis to cover receivers longer than he is used to? How will that affect his stamina coming off a major injury?
See, you make these kinds of statements but don't ever say anything to elucidate why you feel the way you do.

Are we really going back to 2009 to decide whether he can play Steve Smith or not? We had Jake and Moore at quarterback not Newton and few if any other receivers. Revis is playing on the worse secondary in the league bar none last year. Lets not assume that he alone will suddenly make them a top 5 secondary. He will be 28 this year coming off ACL surgery which takes a while to be able to cut sharply from. He will never see all of that contract and while he may be very good, is not likely to be as good as he was.
Revis on Smith...Smith had one catch for 5 yards, and had one bounce off his foot right into Revis's hands. If he's still even close to the same player he was in 2009, this is really bad news for Panthers fans.
However, since the Jets were intent on unloading him, it either speaks to his health, or the fact that they didn't think he was worth what the Bucs paid for him. Probably both.

The Jets made out on this deal, becoming the first team since 2000 to have 2 picks in the top 13 in this weekend's draft. And both of those picks combined won't cost them $16M.
Revis isn't even going to practice until September.

but what's the worst that he can do? shut down one receiver?
no guaranteed money MADE this trade worthwhile for the Buccs because Revis KNOWS he has to perform or be cut. Thats actually a bad thing for Buccs division rivals.
meh....the rest of their secondary is still poo and they still have no pass rush.
just throw the ball to someone else other than smitty. if you're worried about who else to throw it to, draft another WR...or draft another one anyway.
the offense shouldn't be keying in on smith as much as it does. it needs to be airing it out and spreading it around to multiple receivers anyway. you do it right and revis isn't really all that much of a factor.
however, if your plan of attack is to run the ball or throw it to smith you're going to lose against the bucs. it's as simple as that. or at least you aren't going to be doing much against their defense. it's built to stop the run and one receiver and that's it.
