Revis Could Get Cut By Tampa

Can they just cut him? It seems like that would kill their cap

 

No, Thomas Dimitrioff did an amazing job with the Revis contract where he got 0 guaranteed money so that means they can cut him with almost no harm to their cap. Its crazy really that people actually even criticized TD on that contract whatsoever as I have been hearing the past few days now that he has been fired.

Because I know it'll come up, we run a zone scheme here so he wouldn't be a good fit.

We only run zone because of what we have to work with. I think we could find a way to make Revis fit.

Yeah, 16 mil this year, but what about down the line?

 

Read the news story!

 

Snippet:

 

 

 

Cutting Revis does make fiscal sense, since the Buccaneers are paying Revis as they go and only owe him $16 million in non- guarnteed money next season. If the Buccaneers were to release Revis, they’d save $16 million and be able to put that towards bringing in one of the numerous free agents that might want to play for Lovie Smith.

I don't understand if you have a CB of that caliber, why not let him play to his strength and let everyone else play zone

As Chris Brown of Smart Football pointed out, Lovie last ran a Cover 1 Man as his main scheme in Chicago. Also, you don't dump one of the best corners in football just to lose a 4th rounder rather than a 3rd.

He'll end up in Oakland or Washington with guaranteed money, thus pouring kerosene on their respective dumpster fires.

Not quite true.

 

We run zone because both our head coach and our defensive coordinator cut their teeth under the tutelage of Jim Johnson - one of the best DCs in recent history, mind you - who ran a zone blitz attack out of a 4-3 (same defense the Steelers have run forever under Dick LeBeau, just out of a different alignment.

 

Possible we could change schemes if McDermott gets a job elsewhere, but I wouldn't bet on it.  Our current personnel fit this attack pretty well, and an overhaul of a top ranked unit doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Dimitroff runs the Falcons.

 

Mark Dominik was the Bucs GM (but not anymore).

Agreed.  If McDermott moves on, I would bet on Rivera hiring a Coordinator that fits the scheme we have now.  Why change the top defense in the league?
