Darrelle Revis is one of the best cornerbacks in the game but also the highest paid – by a lot.

His cap figure for 2014 is $16 million and his average salary is more than double the next highest paid at his position.

Rumors are flying that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will either trade or release Revis before Tuesday at 4 p.m. when the NFL’s free agency period opens.

But any potential suitor will need plenty of cap space available. Enter the Browns.


Rapoport is alluding to Revis’ time with the Jets playing under Rex Ryan as head coach and new Browns head coach Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator.

It may never come to fruition but the idea of Revis and Joe Haden, two of the game’s best corners, sealing up the opposing team’s top receivers would leave Browns fans salivating.
